Please can you help me out of my dilemna?
I have been searching and reading up on details regarding buying a new desktop pc. I have some idea of what I want, but you all seem very "in the know" with your stuff and thought you might help me out.
My current system is a bit of a dinosaur and driving me nuts!!!! Looking at a bit of spec I would like a core 2 duo, preferably on XP as I am under the impression that vista can cause problems and my current stuff will not be compatible - is that correct??
I don't do a lot of gaming, but use it a lot for work ie office applications, tons of music and pictures. I have an old flat screen lcd monitor, so could use that, but perhaps a new monitor would be good.
Looking at some of the threads, I think it would be beyond my capabilities to build my own! I have been looking at systems approx £400-£500
for example :
1. Maxdata Computer System Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 1024MB 250GB DVD-RW
Windows Vista Home Premium as this is a good price at £379 ebuyer with good reviews
2. Maxdata Favorit 1000 E4300 £405 at Misco, but the spec not quite as good
3. Dell Dimension E520 which would be about £515 with 20" monitor and upgrade to E6300
Thanks guys, even if you only read this, although comments would be good.
