Im after a new PC and didnt think this sounded too bad. I upgraded the Hard Drive and Ram. Here is the specs...

OPERATING SYSTEM Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1, 32-bit - English

OPTICAL DRIVE DVD +/- RW Drive (read/write CD & DVD)
KEYBOARD Dell Entry Quietkey USB Keyboard - UK/Irish (QWERTY)
MOUSE Dell 2 Button USB Scroll Optical Mouse - Black

Including the upgrades of the Ram (3gb to 4gb) and Hard Drive (640gb to 750gb) the total price came to £448.99.

so what do you think?

I've seen better spec models posted by MikeT, perhaps Dells price increase have something to do with them now offering lower specs for more money.

I'm thinking of getting this, but I never got any replies for an opinion on it on here.

# AMD Phenom X3 Triple Core 8650 2.3GHz Processor
# AMD 690V Motherboard
# ATi Radeon X1250 Graphics (SMA)

Graphics card is sucky, but 4GB ram and 750GB HDD. £293. About £7 delivery but you can pick up from store if you live near Manchester.

Also another one for £30 cheaper but with 800mhz ram, 2.1ghz and 500gb hdd.

seems good, never heard of the firm though...

cafc4eva: Can't say that deal is any good, you might be tempted by the warranty but remember you may not have a PC for over a week just cause something small breaks

x Danny: The price of the components for the Aria comes to around 240.08 so it's 53 for the labour.
If you decided to go for DIY you can get a motherboard without inegrated gfx and get a separate 512MB RADEON HD 3850 for just over 60 so you'll end up with a system with much better gfx for about the same price and some DIY fun

Umm.. idk, someone told me custom build before. I think I'll get the £264 one with faster ram then over time.. add to it, different graphics card, hard drive then case etc.. so I'll learn it that way. I really wouldn't know were to start with custom building, I'll just leave that. :P
