Can anyone recommend a really good cheap PC only? My uncles has just packed up and he has also been made redundant, so my dad wants to get him another one, but we already have an LCD monitor for it, anything £300 or below with roughly the following spec would be amazing.

Core2duo processor, any speed
2GB or more of RAM
DVDRW +/- drive
160GB hard drive or more
Vista premium or XP pro

Anything like that would be sweet.
Cheers Dave

I have an AMD 3800 x2 with 160GB hard drive and XP Pro which I just upgraded. Only 1GB of memory, but all components are quality, including Abit Sli M/B and a decent stand alone Gfx card. Also has a dvd/rw

Ok the processor isn't quite C2D but it is great for most things (was my games rig)

I'd sell for £125 but the sticking point will be delivery - where abouts are you?
Thanks for reply Stainy, but think my dad only looking for new PC not second hand.

Cheers anyway
