Multimedia/Gaming System under £1,000

Hoping the marvellous HUKD community can help out here. Have an ongoing insurance claim - one of the issues being a laptop which I believe is going to be replaced. I paid around £1,000 for it so using that as a guide, I'm looking to replace it with a laptop or desktop if they will allow me at a similar price.

What is the best gaming and multimedia system I can get £1,000? I appreciate a desktop is going to give me for bang for my buck as it were and its my favoured route. As it will be used for gaming as well as some pretty demanding picture/video manipulation/editing stuff, I could do with a decent sized screen, good graphics card, decent processor, plenty of RAM etc. Hard drive size not a huge issue since I do run a number of external hard drives.

Look forwards to your help - and am really looking for PC here, not MAC, and running Windows.

These are fun =)

My flatmate bought one a while back, and it seems to have been very reliable and fast... can't remember what he paid, but I remember he got a pretty good deal.

whilst they may be " fun " there very over priced and can build a simular if not better for half the price.

Perhaps, but then he didn't ask for a site selling components.

Totally agree. Building from scratch is fun; a great learning experience and you get exactly what you want. I've been building my own for years - would never buy a complete system from a shop.

That said, if you aren't confident to do a custom build, then you need to make sure you do serious homework as many stores can build seemingly good systems but when it comes down to the nitty-gritty they can be pretty poor in comparison to a custom build.

My advice would be, if building your own isn't an option, to have a look at the smaller brands and stay away from the big brands like Dell and HP, who overprice and oversell their products. PCspecialist.co.uk would be a good start.
