Need a new desktop PC

My current computer is quickly dying and I'm in desperate need of a new one.

Requirements:
Fast processor (preferably quad core).
At least 4GB RAM.
Windows 7 (any version) included in the price.
Built in wireless networking.

Not needed:
Graphics card (already own a Raedon HD4850).
Large HDD (already have 1.5TB external)
Monitor.
Speakers.
Keyboard & Mouse (although I realise most package deals come with these so no problem if they're included).

Looking to spend around £450 ideally. Can go up to £600 so long as I'm getting good value for my money.

Please don't just tell me to build one myself - I'm not confident enough to do that (and I hear it's not really worth it with this kind of budget).

Look forward to seeing your responses!

I know what your saying about building it, but i still think with your budget you can build a nice machine, and its easy. your requirements will be hard to fulfil without you doing some work due to you not wanting a hard drive, which means you would need ot install window 7 yourself (which is easy)

If you're able enough to install a graphics card and hard disk, I can't see why you can't build one yourself. It doesn't require a soldering iron or anything crazy like that... Just a screwdriver, a manual and the ability to fire off a google if you get stuck.

Thanks very much for the recommendation Chuckles. I'm definitely getting more tempted to build my own computer as it certainly seems like I can get more for my money. I actually forgot to mention in the initial post that I already own a 650W Corsair PSU so I wouldn't need to buy a new one of those. I've got a mate at work who built his own PC so I might be able to get him to give me a hand.

Build your own PC - it'll last 10x longer than one made by a manufacturer using cheap, low performance parts.
Also, if you buy a pre-build OEM PC, chances are you won't be able to overclock it.
