    Best possible computer

    Hi there, could anyone show me some of the best PC's I could get for 500 quid? I don't need a monitor included as I have one already, but I would like a fast processor and a good graphics card if possible.

    Or would I be better just trying to build my own (havent done it before), if yes where abouts is the best place to get my parts?

    Thanks

    Check out cyberpowersystem.co.uk/ i got my pc from here and it was costing me the same to build it so its worth checking out. Make sure you do a configurator. However the other day some guy listed a budget gaming pc which had a pretty good spec but i cant find it now.

    ahh found it hotukdeals.com/ite…pc/ unfortunatly the guys suspended now but for the price it was a cracking deal.

    Cheers for the site mate! I built this pc, could you tell me if it looks good for the price? Keep in mind I want this pc to be able to play the newest games out and run dreamcast emulator and PS2 emulator aswell.

    sometimes it doesnt work out that much cheaper, i spent two months deciding wether to build mine or have it built decided to have it built it the end, was only about £50 extra but got the added benefit of 3 year warranty and someone to blame.

    UK GAF'S ULTIMATE £400 GAMING RIG.

    Just like the rig for US posters, I've put together a config that uses the absolute best "bang for buck" components whilst sticking to a strict £400 budget. The basic components are similar but I've used parts that are better priced at Ebuyer in order in come in on budget.

    Total cost of 1080p gaming rig = £453.70

    Mate check out the ocuk Titan Nero I think it's perfect for you and it's only £350 amazing deal, I'm on the iPod at the moment but just search it up on hotukdeals someone just posted it (always give credit where it's due)
