I have seen a PC on sale for the price of £230, the specs are as follows.
Processor Intel Core i3-4150 Dual Core (3.5GHz, 3MB Cache)
Memory 4GB (DDR3 1600MHZ)
Hard Drive 500GB (7200RPM)
Optical Drive DVD-Writer - Serial ATA
Motherboard MSI H81M-P33 Socket 1150 Motherboard
Motherboard Form Factor Micro ATX
Chipset Intel H81
Network Card 10/100/1000 Gigabit Fast Ethernet
External Ports Rear: 4 x USB 2.0, 2 x USB 3.0, 1 x PS2 Keyboard, 1 x PS2 Mouse ports
Card Reader 3 in 1 Card Reader
VGA Port 1 x VGA Port
DVI 1x DVI-D Out
Case S003B Black Slim Micro ATX or Mini ITX Case
Power Supply 300W PSU
Dimensions 99mm x 306mm x 400mm (W x H x D)
I want to use it mainly for web browsing and office work but would also like to use it for some light to moderate gaming (ie Football Manager).
Just wondering what people's thoughts on this would be? Is it a good PC to go for? I don't want to spend any more than this. But I would be looking to upgrade the PC over a period of time. Would I be able to upgrade the processor and put in a low profile graphics card (as it is a smallish case.) or change the case and put in a full size one? Would this all be possible?
It should be ok for what you want. I would double the RAM which should be fairly cheap and the other areas of concern would be the PSU which is on the low side and hard drive which is small by new computer standards but fine for general use.
