Hello. I'm looking for a decent Quad-Core desktop PC for under £600, preferably with Windows 7 or XP because I hate Vista. I heard if you shop around it is possible now.
(May be able to stretch to £650 if necessary.)
If the processor and OS are 64-bit that'd be ideal. Cheap bastards only gave me a 32-bit OS when I had a 64-bit processor...
My mum wants a new PC because the old one is now incredibly slow. Mostly her fault if the logs from virus and spyware scans are anything to go by...
If this doesn't turn in a result then she'll end up just going into PC World and buying the first one she sees that looks pretty. Doesn't seem to realise that an aesthetically pleasing case doesn't mean the machine's any good.
With young siblings, they'll want to be able to play games on it too, however "proper" gaming on the PC is not a priority. It'll mostly be used for internet browsing and watching YouTube videos. Basically, it doesn't need to run Crysis flawlessly at full spec.
If the screen is 1920x1080 then that would be ideal too, however I can always connect my own monitor if this isn't the case. Can anyone help?
Oh, another option is parts to build one instead, for example my attention was just drawn to this:http://overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CP-281-IN
