Hi am in the market for a cheapish desktop pc

need a monitor and base unit....

i suppose i could buy the keyboard and mouse seperatly (if its cheaper) but not sure about all the other cabling thats required?

i have a copy of XP so i can install that myself if necessary, not to bothered about the size of the hard-drive etc

If you want a basic pc (not new) have a look on [url]www.bigpockets.co.uk[/url] they have some cheap ones on there.

But all comes down to what you want the computer for in the first place :)

they are all used on there with only a 3 month warranty....im not sure if thats a good idea?

there seems to be many P4 3GHZ on there but im abit confused by the models and processors...

Why not buy this and add a monitor.

Good set of components just waiting for you to install an operating system on it.

thanks mate

the system i curently have (about 4-5 years old) says it is a packard bell celeron 2.8 ghz, 480 RAM

obviously the system you showed me has ALOT more RAM and i know this is better, but doesnt it have the same processor, and isnt this out of date now, since mine is so old already??

if i bought a monitor (around £60-£70 for acer 19") would it come with all the cables and conectors to get this up and running (since it already comes with mouse and keyboard) ?

im looking £300 if i bought this (with monitor), abit over budget to be honest but if it is a really good spec pc then i'd consider buying it eg does it have a very good graphics card? etc etc


i know that a 750 GB hard drive and 4GB RAM is more than i'll ever need though.

again thanks for your help...

for £220 you arent going to get a "very good graphics card" its propbably integrated card so intel gma
#6
thanks

so is £300 a reasonable price for a desktop pc these days, with a 1 year gaurantee?

i was hoping to pay between £150-£200 for a complete system but i guess if i want something decent, i'll have to pay more than that....

£300 for a very low end setup yeh guess so, and you saving on OS so i guess it does help a little

a friend of mine paid £200 for a base unit (local computer shop)

3.2 ghz dual core

320 gb HDD

IGB RAM

i think thats the spec, no operating system but one years gaurantee....

just the base unit, no keyboard, mouse or monitor.....

do you think thats a good price? im just not sure about going to such a small retailer though, what do you think??

its not a great price really. its ok and benefits from local assistance if it goes wrong which is a good thing imho
