I've been thinking to buy this one for a week now but undecided in case a better deal comes out I appreciate any feedback or suggestions thanks

Sure you have.

Waste of time, 6 core Sandbridge will destroy this and be a fair bit cheaper. Hell a quadcore sandybridge isn't that far off in normal stuff.


This is true :D

Hell a quadcore sandybridge isn't that far off in normal stuff.Also that system and then a 5400rpm drive in it, those people are clueless, wouldn't go near them when they do such a stupid thing like that.and a crappy generic PSU.

I think a 5400rpm 2tb will beat a 1tb 7200rpm, just for the fact about the size.

But still bad deal,

You've got a nice budget to play with, have you not considered building your own?

A Sandy bridge with an SSD would be a much better start, I would also go for 2 x 4gb RAM for the time being and put the rest towards a premium heatsink and fans.
As an added bonus you could even choose a good looking case :)

Build your own dude you could make a killer desk top with £2000 to play with ! and have a lot of fun learning to do it

If you have never done it before it is not too scary and there are lots of web help sites and you tube is brilliant for building tips ;)
#8
send me 2k i'll build you a rig 10times better than this and be able to afford a small holiday!!! These companies must make a killing!!!

Build your own FTW, much less daunting than you may think, although quite an addictive and fun hobby!!
#9
What a pleasure to see so many people with genuine
helpful hints and suggestions instead of the "Cold Voters.
Though I am not in the market for a new PC, a big
thank you.
#10
Maybe if it had an apple logo would be worth it :)
Sandybridge 2600k, even 2500k based systems would be much cheaper & faster.
They'll easily run at 4.5 Ghz on air cooling.

A good PSU is one of the most important things imho

Here's a comparable build, but with sandybrigde i7 and a 120GB solid state drive.

What's the point in going for cutting edge, and then putting your OS on a mechanical hard drive? Madness!.

You're welcome matey :)

You also know you're getting top-quality components...the memory and power supply of the Mesh system could be questionable. (The PSU is £100 at Maplins, who aren't renowned for their value-for-money)

You could save yourself quite a bit of money though:
- a cheaper case could do much the same job
- 8GB Memory...I can't see 16GB being particularly useful for gaming (at the moment)
- dvd instead of blu-ray
- lose the solid state drive

Save around £500 altogether, for much the same gaming performance!

Don't forget some extra fans, fan controller, cold cathode lights and most importantly:

Please can you explain the benefits of a solid state drive? I assume you only put the OS on this.

I have used separate partitions for the OS in past computers, but found it annoying when some software would automatically install on the c:\ (OS) drive without me being able to stop it, thus defeating the object of keeping the OS separate. As a result, I now just use a single drive, but it still interests me.

A solid state drive offers much faster read and write speeds.

Typically, you would put the OS and your most used applications on this drive...your computer would then boot up much faster and the applications on the SSD would start really quickly.

You're right...separating OS from Applications is really difficult. Even if you install an application on a different drive, some information for that application is installed to the OS drive (so that the OS can manage the application. For that reason, I use the following partitions:
- one for the OS and Applications
- one for media and files

I take snapshots of the "OS and Applications" partition and back them up to the large partition. Because they don't include media, these snapshots are relatively small.

If migrating to a SSD, I would put "OS and Applications" on the SSD, leaving all my media and files on the large HDD.

So, if buying a SSD, I would recommend using it for OS and Applications, and making sure you buy one large enough for your future application growth.

I use an SSD/hard drive combo...

120GB Vertex:
Windows 7
VLC
iTunes
Anti-virus
Browser
Steam
A few of my current 'most played' games

1TB Samsung F3:
Music, video, games, browser download folder etc

unless you have money to burn, do not buy that system.
its not hard at all to put a machine together.. (imo its the best part of the experience).

Here's what I'd buy. Its a system that's completely overclockable, and will last you for years on default settings.

Heck, I'm waiting for a bit of money to come way and will start sourcing the best prices to build this myself!

MONEY TO BURN
