  longwalk 21:07 04 Jun 2010

Hi Guys,
Firstly I would like to explain what I need the pc for:

- Small business : accounts info, invoices etc need to be created from here and sent etc.

- Needs to be able to handle large files as alot of work I do is design based. Programmes like:
Fireworks, Photoshop, Coral etc

- Needs to cater for many music files and some videoes, I dj on the side and all my collection is ripped to a seperate computer . Will have programmes like cubase vst installed

RAM needs to be: 6GB / 8GB / ?
Hard Drive : 1.5 Tb minimum
Blu Ray player
Good sound card

Not concerned with graphics as I dont play games on it, In a nutshell it needs to be able to handle numerous programmes and operate without a glich as my current DELL 5150 with 250GB and laptop are dying lol.

Just need base unit and monitor.

Budget is £900, been looking at: and cube

If you do a search for PC Specialist on this forum you will see a mixed bag of results but they have run into some flak of late click here.

Cube247 are fairly new to this forum and a quick search shows that most buyers are pleased with them.

Novatech have always had a good reputation (do a forum search and you will see) although there have been one or two negative reports in recent months.

Hi Guys
thanks for the links,
I think there will be no company who doesnt have negative reviews; however NOVA seem to be the way forward anyone bought from them personally?

also what RAM should I been looking for I have been advised 8GB , however I was thinking it might be worth it for 12GB or is this to much?
