I'm looking for a new PC and someone suggested I look for an i7 processor based one. I have been looking around and this seems to be massively cheaper than anywhere else, even the Dell site which is odd because it's not a sale item.
I don't know much at all about PC's so if this is a bad deal then please could people advise an alternative (ideally a cheaper one) I use my PC mainly for streaming HD content, music etc, but occasionally for games (would really like to be able to play The Sim 3). I really want something future proof and ideally around the £500 mark, but if this is a good deal then great....!
