PC base units - advice needed

  Doodles 13:56 03 Jan 2004

I intend to upgrade my PC by Monday. I have had a look round and it is a mine field out there. I have looked at Time PC's and they seem to be edging as my favorites. I dont want to spend more than 800 quid. Can anyone give me some advice/recommendations on what to look at.
I want to be able to
copy dvd/cd do some video editing etc. Many thanks

I can do no better than refer you to this:

Or have a look at click here.

Scan sells both the Asus (cheaper) and MSI base units (more expensive) and, in addition, often reduces the prices on its TodayOnly page.

But I would put a little thought into exactly what you require rather than set an arbitary deadline of Monday...:-)

Ordering online is a different matter with Dell - never dealt with them but do know that Dell, Dan (when it was in existance), Evesham, Mesh etc offer top quality systems at a reasonable price.

My son, an IT support specialist, wouldn't buy anything but Dan systems whilst he was at university because of the sheer quality.

Sadly the Great British Public's desire to have everything at the lowest possible price regardless of the long term consequences has killed off many of the leading suppliers.

please avoid time... i got a base unit, and it's ok, it was 649 + 50 delivery - BUT sometimes the graphics card just doesn't 'work' when u switch the pc on...i mean it's a strange problem - but im technically minded so it's all good for me... but just avoid time - if u JUST want a base unit, look elsewhere, there's better deals on other websites
