I'm looking to get another desktop computer. I've got about £500 to spend, and I need a full system. Ideally, I'd like an AMD Ath 64 3000+, with some ram and a 256MB graphics card. Key requirement is that is it very quiet - my current computer sounds like a train! A "gamer" case with pretty lights would not be unwelcome.
Any advice on the best and cheapest people to look at? Dell seems pretty good, but I'm not sure how upgradable they are, and no idea how the Dell intergrated graphics performs on games. Also looking at ebay and a couple of other websites, but to be honest, not really a clue who balances cheapness and quality the best nowadays.
Also, best to wait for Easter sales?
