I personally think its dear, let me just check my spec to urs xxx
#3
i have everything on urs apart from my monitor is 19 inch not 24 (why do you want 24 for a pc??? they look awful!!) mine isnt a blue ray dvd writer but a normal one. And mines a duo processor not a quad. I do have extra than you though as in 3 years warranty collect and return to base, on hardware, and software. And i hae 19-in 1 media card reader, and i paid £610.

Too expensive. I expect it is the monitor that is the thing that's weighing the price down because for a price like that, you could get a better spec.
#5
Its overpriced, all prebuilt systems are at the top end but it is a good spec for the money you'll be hard pushed to get the same for the same money (try it on dells website)

What?

The price looks OK but nothing special, I specced out a similar system here without monitor and it came to £729 and a basic 24" (which I assume will be all that mesh would provide) can be had for £200.

EDIT: As an owner of a 24" I'd say it's definitely not too big. In fact having owned it a couple of months now I'm wishing it was a little bigger, but unfortunately the only bigger ones availible are the 30" ones at £850+ (The 26, 27" and 28" ones are all the same resolution as 24" so you don't get any more desktop space).

third one along is good, u get bluray too and latest processor, unless your a hardcore gamer, this would be more than adequate

At home I use a variety of screen sizes: 15" (laptop), 20" (attached to the laptop) and 24" (imac).
I wouldn't say that 24" is too big but I wouldn't go any bigger.
I regularly use my 20" without missing my 24".
What would the resolution be on that monitor out of interest?

I can understand specs and have a general knowledge of how much things should cost etc. but I'm not sure I could recommend any PC spec's for you. I only use Mac's now and have done for a while so I don't know what is good on the PC side anymore. I could recommend a Mac spec if you wanted? lol
There's quite a few PC buffs on this forum who, I'm sure, would be happy to help you out though :)

Not really. Monitors are a bit like televisions in that you soon get used to the size of them. I bought a 22" widescreen about 6 months ago and thought it was far too big at first. Now, 19" monitors look too small to me. :)

As for the PC, if you need everything it's got it's not a bad buy. But, I suspect you could shave several hundred pounds off by settling for a lower spec without losing much performance.

hey ppl im not hardcore gamer i only play fifa games and tennis games, and wana watch latest movies bluray etc so which graphic card will be the bst for me the one on the above spec?or a lower one?


the 22" monitor is a chiemi cmv223d resolution: 1680x1050,dvi,5ms and the 24" is Yuraku yv24wbh1 resolution 1920 x 1200,dvi 8ms

so which one should i go for?

the larger monitor will probably need a slightly faster card to run it, the monitors don't forget are cheaper monitors, the build quality will not be as good and they may not have as good a lifespan, but you may get lucky

I bought this monitor for £117 (ebuyer, its a 19" but it's the dogs boll x) http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3031/2575226293_1aec67e5b1_o.jpg

if you're buying a prebuilt PC you will be more limited to choice of graphics cards, although you could buy and swap out a graphics card or get one fitted (my local computer shop would charge around £20 for fitting a card) - the 9600GT or HD 3650 should be more than enough and will ensure you can play the odd newer game which you may want to do now and again

You are, but when you hold such an unconventional opinion then it would help others if you explained why you thought this was the case. As it is, it's not even clear whether you mean the picture quality looks hideous on large monitors or whether the monitor physically looks hideous at such a size.

EDIT: If mesh have told you that the 24" they'd supply you is the yuraku then I wouldn't buy from them at all. That monitor is supposed to have very poor build quality (there's a thread about it on here) and while some people may want to buy it because of the panel types I wouldn't want to buy a new system to find that screen with it.

£20 quid to fit a graphics card is a complete rip off its about 5 mins work (that includes having a cup of tea) and take NO SPECIAL SKILLS many guides on internet on how to do it :x



As post above says better to get smaller better quality monitor than cheap 24" one

i fit my own, others who are buying prebuilt may want to have someone fit, as they have no experience and would prefer to trust an expert, cheaper than PC world anyway!

Hey, I deffo wouldn't buy a pre-built computer as they are over priced; for what you actually get its a rip off. I would advise building your own even if you get someone to give you a hand as you can get a top spec for a fraction of that price.
My boyfriend recently got a decent PC that he fitted himself for around £490 excluding a monitor.
Q6600 Quad Core CPU, 4gb Corsair ram, 8800GT graphics card n obviously a decent motherboard and everything else.

So yeh, look around and see what things are going for. I think you can get a Q6600 for about £120 now and my boyfriend payed £140. Ebuyer, Scan, Aria etc are good as far as i know.

Hope it helps :)
