Hi,
After a right faf on with Mesh Computers I cancelled my order with them.

I am looking for a decent PC that comes with a decent size HD monitor.

I have around £700 budget, may go slightly higher.

Thanks in advcance and a word of warning, AVOID Mesh Computers.

That comes in at £480.20

And a monitor.......

LG W2361V 23" LCD Widescreen Full HD Gaming monitor 1920x1080 300cd/m2 50,000:1 2ms VGA/DVI/HDMI Tilt Stand 3yr Onsite Warranty - Gloss Black

That comes in at £154.65

And you will need some cracking sound for games so lets add these Logitech X-530 5.1 Speakers - 70W RMS@ £56 odd...................

Now that lot up and change delivery to "5 day supersaver and the whole lot delivered comes in at.........£691.28.

So the item code numbers are..

1/ 176496 PC
2/ 165288 23 inch LG TFT 3 years warranty
3/ 116853 Logitech X-530 5.1 Speakers - 70W RMS

That covers video and computer with Windows 7 and its 64 bit if that matters. plenty space and it has a 500 watt PSU so thats that covered...............and its a quad core so flying machine.

Yeah I think all the above will do the job.

[url]www.ebuyer.com[/url] and all in stock.

remember to change to 5 day supersaver at checkout if you do go for this mate........

WOW thanks for the responses.

I didn't want to build my own initialy however I may go down that route.

I wont be using the PC for gaming. I need it to set up a virtual network (lab) for work and other processor/memory heavy stuff.

OS doesnt matter really, if cheaper I will go with no OS and just stick Linux on.

Im planning to move my current PC into the living room and using it as a media center/backup machine with the new monitor.

Thanks! I'll have a gander.

EDIT:---

Any thoughts on this one?

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/172711

Has 6GB RAM expandable to 8GB + Intel Quad.

Or this 'barebones'?

What sort of 'virtual network'?

The Q8300 is only an entry level quad-core (I think it's Intel's slowest now the Q8200 has been discontinued) so if you do need it for stuff that's processor/memory heavy by today's standards you're better off ditching the luxuries like the blu-ray drive and going for a more powerful processor, you may be able to squeeze a Core i7 into your budget as you don't need a strong GPU.

Is screen quality an issue? Obviously if you want a nice £250-300 screen it's going to impact the budget vs. going for a basic £150 one.

On ocassion I need to run 2-3 different virtual machines at a time using VirtualBox. I also run other software which is processor/ram intensive.

I would like a nice screen for the living room to use as part of a media center (Boxee) to replace the TV.

I'll have a look at some i7's.

Thanks again! :)
