Hi, I need to get a new PC, looking to spend £750 max.
I would like 22" LCD and a nice speedy all round PC.
Will be used for some graphic work Photoshop etc, some gaming and a bit of home video editing.
Looked at Mesh but the poor service mention here has put me off.: click here
I've configured this at Cougar as the seem to have lots of happy customers: ntel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16 GHz 6Mb Cache, 4GB Kingston DDR2 667 - 2 x 2GB single modules, 500GB SATA Hard Drive, 512Mb Nvidia 8500GT graphics card DX10, C2D - ASROCK CONROE 1333fsb-DDR667x2 integrated motherboard, 2 x DVD+/- RW - 20X (pioneer 115D), 22 inch (DVI) AMW TFT 5ms widescreen X2210WDS, Wireless Optical Deskset DS-3400D, Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 4 PCI 7.1, Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premiem (OEM)
For CoD4 I'd recommend a 8800GT 512Mb or similar (anyone putting a 8500GT in a 'gaming' PC are kidding themselves & their customers). You may have to get a slightly lesser CPU to accomodate it - a Q6600 quad-core even.
You could also get a PC with the most basic graphics card & the lowest memory they offer (512Mb) & get better replacements from elsewhere, e.g.:
Get a motherboard with 4 RAM slots & 8Gb capacity for future upgrades if ever needed.
And definitely go for a better PSU as citadel says.
22" monitor recommendations for ~£125:
- Hanns-G HG216DP (with DVI & HDMI) click here = £126 after Quidco cashback click here (I have the 19" model purchased for £100 almost 2 years ago, & it's never skipped a beat) - HP L2208W (VGA only) click here = £125 after HP cashback
How much will you be paying for the spec you posted in your initial post btw? G
