That's a terrible system for the price! Just look at the peripherals included for a start - at that price I'd definitely expect something better than a G15 and an E248WFP.

How urgently do you need the new PC? Intel are coming out with a new line of processors in November (Core i7) so if you're planning on spending over £1000 then they're worth waiting for.

If you want it now then I'd look at something like a Q9550, 4 or 8GB of DDR2 (there's no point going for DDR3 with current processors), A GTX280 if you're going to be using the graphics card's processing power ([email protected], Rendering, Gaming etc.) or a low power card like a 4450 if you're not. X-fi Titanium or Asus Xonar sound card, Vista 64-bit, a high quality PSU (Enermax, Corsair, PC Power and Cooling, etc.) and some quiet fans are all good choices too.
