It depends on the cost, it's a reasonable all round machine but not worth that much as it's a lower end machine.

£710 is a lot for a PC that spec,What are you going to be using it for that justifies that much ?.

I'd say 710 pounds is a lot of money for that machine, you could get something more suitable for half the price. Unless you're gaming I wouldn't go for the 9800GT card as for 24/7 use it's going to use more power and produce more heat.

If i sold it on its own i would want £70 as its the model with built in hdmi and is quite hard to find ,It would be boxed as new,You would also need a 400w PSU to run it really,

Just going out now, Be back in a hour ,

Pretty poor for the money, I reckon. I bought myself a similarly powerful system at the start ofthe year from Gumtree for only £300, including a 19" monitor. I reckon Tony's offer is the best, although I reckon that buying it without the extra graphics card might be a better idea. HDMI's not actually much good. Being digital, it should in theory be better than VGA, but in practise, most TVs refuse to accept a native res via HDMI, and they seem insistant upon enforcing their own rubbishy post-procesing on the signal. This means that your TV, if it's a 720p set, will either upscale from 1280*720 to 1366*786 and apply stupid things like sharpening and dynamic contrast to the picture, or if it's a 1080p set, do stupid things like overscanning the image, stretching it beyond the dimensions of the screen. In both cases, it makes text look ghastly, and it makes video suffer various ugly little abberations around the edges. It sucks.

It depends on your telly, naturally. Some TVs are happy to map pixels on a 1:1 basis, and not mess about with the image they've been told to show. A lot though, they just can't help themselves, and if you've got a TV that refuses to do unperverted native res via HDMI, you;ll find VGA looks infinitely better. If you have a dedicated graphics card, all it's really going to do is suck up additional power and generate heat.

£710 is a lot, i paid about £550 for a slightly better spec (intel) a year ago.
