Or have a look here. The TFT's/Monitors are extra but sell those also.

In your position I'd go with the PC World job complete with the upgrades. But before you buy in store, take a look at their website. There is a huge price differential on most things. Even if you buy on their web site, going to the store is likely to be an option if you have problems.

thanks guys, been round most of the manufacturers and they all seem to have similarly specced machines. the pcworld option seems reasonable to me, shouldnt be too much of a problem taking it back if things go wrong but if i add a graphics card will it void the warranty on it?

Try having a look at the reviews on this site.

Why not give Jal Computers a look, You can build what you want. See my threads for Jal Computers. I own one and am really happy with it, Casey

click here for 3 great PC's then if you click on the "select this system" you will be taken to the next page where it asks if you want Operating System and which monitor to pick and if you want any software

I would go for the Matrix Pro 64 3200, I chose XP home a TFT 17' Flat screen and 5.1 speakers on there site for a cost of £814.91 inc Delivery and VAT
