Used to be into the whole PC gaming thing a few years back but haven't dabbled in it for years now and just had a friend ask for some advice on a PC.
He wants a new PC, his budget is £350, I've told him he probably wont be able to get a good graphics card inside that, but he's OK to wait a bit before he can afford one (maybe when the newer cards drop in price a bit?), but I was wondering if there was a decent machine doing the rounds for that price that could at least be the basis of a decent gaming machine?
I would prefer a pre-built machine with some kind of warranty as I don't want the hassle of having to go round and help him fix it if something goes wrong, and I remember all too well the pains of many companies RMA procedures (had a dodgy motherboard and PSU on my first build).
I was thinking along the lines of a good Dell Vostro deal or something (doesn't seem like you'd be able to build anything decent for £350 out of components?) Maybe something with a Core i5?
Anyway help would be much appreciated
