First post woooooooo! :D

Anyways..

i need a new pc. my limit is £500.

it has to be a core2duo (good for overclocking) and it has to be able to manage most games.

needs a good fan watt awell

If possible id like a monitor included in the price but thats only if its possible.

I cannot build computers so it needs to be built up.

Ive had a look at mesh and a couple of other sites so i was just wondering what you guys could come up with.

i dont ask for much do i :P

Thanks :)

I build my own but I have also repaired PC's for Mesh.

The stock intel fan that comes with the core2 Duo chips is Ok unless you want to start overclocking.

When you start overclocking you need to be careful on the temperature circulation in your PC. I overclocked my processor once to see how it'd run and you could have fried an egg on it.

Your best to look at the Dell specs, and price up along side. I did that for the Quad-Core Dimension MikeT posted, worked out cheaper buying from Dell. But I don't see the point in overclocking when you pay a little more for a big bit better?

i just dont know anyone that builds them. most sites have options for extra cooling so overclocking shouldnt be a problem. i dont wanna go over the top just get a lil more out of it.

dells are nice and cheap but you cant go near their bios. its all locked which means no overclocking.

so my only choice is to buy one (if thats even possible with a £500 budget)

ill keep on looking.

thanks
