lovely top end pc, not sure if it's much of a bargin though.

no bargain for sure,colder than ice

its an ok spec pc, although the graphics card isnt amazing.
however being a medion all the components will be rubbish and the pc will not perform well.

i had a medion car cd player and it was awful

go to a decent company like alienware, dell or overclockers.co.uk and get something good for the money

The graphics card just does not do the rest of the spec justice so lets the whole pc down badly in my opinion, if you are going for a power PC build your own as you can pick the exact spec you want, dont see the point in buying a pc that's not quite right or buying one with the idea of swapping one of the components to upgrade.
The best example of this is with another PC deal on here that quite a few people bought and said well if we buy X graphics card and put that in its good value, then rfealising that to run a better graphics card you would need to upgrade the power supply,
I just dont see the point ok it may be as cheap at the minute to buy ready made pc's but they are often designed without upgrades in mind, wheras build your own you get everything just as you wanted it and can factor in future possible upgrades without having to upgrade the psu etc too. And best of all? The satisfaction in being able to say I built that!

I agree. Build your own, it works out alot cheaper for a better spec'd PC. If you can't do this go to a local PC shop (not PC World etc) and they usually build them for you for about £30

Get it. I would have done, but they'd sold out. I haven't bought a pre-built pc in years, I've always built my own, even down to building the cases myself.

Forget the bull about building a better one for less money, you can't do it. Even going to ebuyer or overclockers, and buying the cheapest equivalent parts, and only as an upgrade (IE; you already have a case, keyboard,mouse,tv card and monitor) it still works out at roughly the same price as that medion and then you have the hastle of putting it together (Not forgetting that if you buy this PC , you still have your old one as a second working PC). Do a complete build and its over £600.

ASUS P5K Motherboard £68.58

Don't try Dell, they can't match that spec for price (well they couldn't last week. See Edit below), and Alienware will charge you £1300 for it, although to be fair you do get a pretty case.

And the big advantage is that if anything should go wrong, just nip it back to your nearest Tesco

For less than £550 you aren't going the mutts nuts of gaming PC's, but you will get a PC that will play every game out there at a reasonable level (and nobody mention Crisis, to get that working well you need to add a fair bit more to the price) Yes a Nvidia 8800 card would have been better, but you'd also be looking at a PC which is over £100 more.

For a review of the case:

Edit: Actually, looking on Dell today they're offering £40 off a similar spec XPS with the 8800GT card. Add to that one of the 10% off voucher codes from here, and the 5% cash back from quidco.co.uk, and it will come in at roughly the same price as the Tesco Medion
