I am looking at buying a new high spec system and wondered if anyone has any alternatives to ITCSales (not got the stock in at the mo - 2 weeks before anymore).

I am looking for typically this (yes a lot to ask but some of the itc listings have been up to this level for less than £500!)

Dual Core Processor
2Gb RAM
320+ Gb SATA drives
256Mb graphics card
DVD writer
DVD reader
Card reader
No monitor required
No operating system required

.....well its worth asking isnt it!!

Thanks, markluk

[SIZE=3]they used to say you have two hopes: Bob Hope and no hope. [/SIZE]

[SIZE=3]Dude you don't even have Bob hope any more. :sad:[/SIZE]

[SIZE=3]you'll prob find that the company is listing wishlist computers that are never in stock. just to get you surfing their catalogue.

Saying "I want a big shiny thing for cheap" - fair enough - what do you want to do with it? Then i can try to find you alternatives[/SIZE]

Dual Core Processor
Much of the computer industry (including gaming) works better on single core. My system comes with a single core AMD Athlon 64 3200+.

markluk
2Gb RAM
I can understand why you need this, however my system does come with a very powerful 1GB Crucial PC3200 (2x512MB) RAM.

markluk
320+ Gb SATA drives
Here's where you would need to upgrade, as my system only comes with a 160GB Serial ATA (new SATA connection) Hard Disk.

markluk
256Mb graphics card
My system comes with a very powerful Powercolor Radeon X800GTO , 256MB.

markluk
DVD writer
DVD reader
Card reader
Regrets that mine doesn't come with a media card reader, although does come with a Dual Layer 8x8 DVD-RW Drive.


_______

Motherboard: DFI LanParty UT nF4-D (very powerful)
Case: X-Blade Black
Other Things that my computer comes with: Wireless Network Card, Thermaltake 480W Butterfly PSU, Fan Controller.

I'm asking for 350 inc, and for an extra 150 you can easily upgrade to Dual Core, 2GB RAM, Add a media card reader and you could buy another 250GB S-ATA hard drive :) This is worked out in that the processor will sell for 40, giving you a total of 190 to spend. Dual Core 3800+ (which my motherboard allows) will cost you 100, RAM will cost you an addition 40, you can pick up a media card reader for less than 10 quid on eBay and you can pick up a 200GB hard drive on eBay for just over 40.

My advice is to be patient with ITC sales..I just purchased a Dell from them with exactly the spec you require with a Gforce 6800 graphics card which works quite well with the latest games..I paid £399 + vat and it is in new condition.
At some future date I will upgrade to a Gforce 7600GT or Gforce 7900GT card as my son wants the best gaming performace.
