Hello all. I'm after a new PC and after convincing myself I was going to either buy one of the excellent deal deals or one from the dell outlet I've had a change of heart. I'm after something half decent, including a decent case and PSU. A spec I've been looking at for example is the following;
INTEL CORE 2 DUO E6600 1066FSB SKT775
2GB DDR2 PC-5400 667 MHZ
400 GB SATA HDD UDMA 300 7200 16MB
ASUS 256MB RADEON X1950PRO TV/DVI PCI-E
ASUS SKT-775 P5B-E S/L 1066FSB
SAMSUNG DVD+/-RW 18x6x18x8 D/LAYER BLACK (IDE)
ThermalTake CASE EUREKA VC8000BWA BLK
ThermalTake W0103RB 600W TOUGHPOWER BLK
CREATIVE SB X-Fi XTREME MUSIC 7.1 OEM
4 X USB 2.0 PORTS
FAST 10/100 LAN (BROADBAND READY)
That comes in at £663 plus VAT from computer planet but I've read some rather horrific things about the company/service. I know only the bad stuff gets posted but I'm open to other retailers.
Another place I've found is http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk
who seem to have quite good prices but not as much choice.
If anyone knows of anything other places where one can spec a machine I'd really appreciate a heads up. I want a PC that's kitted out with decent hardware from the ground up. As I said, I did consider a dell but on further reflection I think I'll do better to look elsewhere.
I don't need a monitor so it's just a base needed (unless the monitor is included in some killer deal!).
Thanks in advance.
