Price could do with inserting into the title ;)

Not sure why cold. You couldn't buy the parts separately for this price

Taken a couple of liberties with the case as the 343 wasn't on there but the one I used is the cheapest Coolermaster and a similar price and the PSU I've specced, although the cheapest, is probably better than the one in this but you're still looking at £300 to buy the parts and a copy of 8.1.

is there any reason why you couldn't change the OS on this?

Add a £50 SSD and you would have a very capable Office/Internet PC.

Combined with the 1 year collect and return warranty this is a good deal.

Don't buy this with the intention to add a gaming video card so. The power supply in this will likely be one of those generic £10 cheapo ones.

Or factor in the cost of a decent PSU?

Totally agree. SSDs are a nice to have. A decent PSU is a necessity.

Add £40 for a Corsair 80+ bronze 400W PSU, £100 for a GTX 750ti and you're laughing.

Deserves more heat I think.

Tempting. But how much space would this case have for adding drives or cards?

Spec says PSU is 500w - when posters say a 'decent PSU', do they mean quality rather than output?

The motherboard has space for 2 PCIe expansion cards, one of which can be a video card.

There are 4 SATA ports for hard/optical drives. Two of these ports operate at a lower maximum speed, also this should not make a huge difference for most people.

The Coolermaster case has space for 2 optical drives and 6 x 3.5" hard drives in total. If you want to install a SSD/2.5" hard drive you will need to buy a converter bracket for < £5, as none are provided.

A decent budget PSU costs £30+ in the sale and £40-£50 otherwise. When buying PSUs it is advisable to stick with major brands and read the reviews for a specific model before deciding to buy it.

Cheap PSU run hotter, are more noisy, less reliable, especially when frequently run under a heavy load (gaming), and can commonly kill the motherboard/processor/video card when they cease to function with a loud bang/smoke.

If you are going to replace the PSU and add a video card etc... you may as well buy someone "who is in the know" dinner, and get them to help build you a custom PC.

Personally I would not buy this PC, if you want to add more than a SSD/optical drive and may be a low end video card with HDMI output, so you can more easily use a TV as a monitor/speaker.
