Best budget pc?

I went into all local Dixons: they had a compaque and Heward Packard both for £500 each, the specs seemed the same: which one is best to go for??

i personally would prefer the compaq,have they got the same processor ie athalon or celeron,and check the size of harddrives if you are going to need a lot of space.

Probably not one of those, go down to your local computer store and see what they can offer you for your £500, you more likely to get a better deal.

You could perhaps select your specification at CCL Computers [click here] and get them to build it for you.
