I'm quite new to this site so please forgive me if this is in the wrong section. I quite liked this PC bundle but I thought i'd get some advice from you guys before purchasing..


Many thanks and any advice will be appreciated!


Nice Spec. :thumbsup: Not sure about the price. :thinking:

Thanks guys... So do you think it's too pricey? Also, i heard that on Vista you cant run more than 3GB Ram, does anyone know if this is true?

Decent spec. for the price; check psu to make sure it's decent quality and at least 600W if you intend adding another video card, 500W if you don't.

Vista 3Gb limitation is down to type of Vista (32-bit rather than 64-bit) and type of chipset on motherboard (check both).

Thanks Frogman! That's a big help! I'll give them a call and check both details then... I thought it was a decent system too but wanted someone elses input :-)

DDR2 533? I'd have expected DDR2 800 on a system like that. Cibox is also a very cheap monitor brand so quality won't be excellent.

Unless you particulaly want to buy from CCL I think you'll find better if you look around. There was a dell on here recently with the same specs and same price but with a 24" dell monitor for example.
