Not very good reviews from this either.

the warbird has good reviews in the pc mags i have read. the cpu is pre overclocked to 4g so you get great perfomance.

I don't see the point of buying an overclocked computer unless you want mega speed with the latest games. It doesn't do anything for long life and reliability

If you want a fast speed, but a fast processor to start with

For the budget you can buy Dell or similar

cpu can run overclocked for years, cpu lifespan may be reduced but you will have upgraded long before then.

pb1970 there are so many companies to choose from when looking for a computer. I have never bought from Yoyotech but they do seem to have some bad reviews. That said, the majority of companies you look into will have some bad reviews aswell. Unhappy customers are always to first to voice their opinions. I would personally recommend Cube247, there are plenty of system within your budget to choose from. I have used this company for a while now, and have always been impressed with the service they provide. What i would say is if you decide on the specification you want shop around and get some quotes. I know that Mesh and Cube will build a system to you specification so it is worth getting the best deal.

Hey PB,

You seem to be looking for a PC similar to what I was after just before xmas.

I eventually went for this one...click here

(It's even cheaper now, grrrrr!)

I have been very pleased with my purchase and would heartily back up what was previously recommended to me ... get a big, widescreen monitor!

Right now I'm playing FM10 (3 countries, 10 leagues, medium database and a plethora of installed graphics. Thanks to the big monitor I can play FM10 in windowed mode, watch dvd's and surf the web all on one screen. It's fab!

All the best

Thanks for the advice.My biggest problem is that i have a tendency to look at reviews and that is what made me think of buying from Yoyotech,i have no idea what overclocking is?.Intially i was going to buy from Dell but a few comments put me off from buying,i've had a look at Novatech,Cube and Arbico and it still seems like i'm back at square one,thanks again.
