    i think its 200 or so in tesco stores a dual core pc (dell)

    £299 for a quad core (bit too much power unless gaming) direct.tesco.com/q/R…spx

    £259.99 a dual core direct.tesco.com/q/R…spx

    remember quidco and use some of the vouchers :thumbsup:

    i would use the dual core unless you want it future proof (5-6 years) but not many people would have use for the quad core.
    The dual core is better suited as it has large hard drive good size ram and its a pretty quick cpu. I have a dual core dell and would recommend it 100%

    i think its instore only for the one i meant, i will check it when i go in tomorrow :thumbsup:

    this has just come up, care to comment

    something like this would be ok: amazon.co.uk/Asp…8-2

    you'd need to upgrade the RAM tho, which would cost you abut £26 for 2GB, then you could sell the 512MB for around a tenner

    thats a server, would need some modding to be able to use as a normal pc tho

    a server is a pc that holds data e.g. this website is saved on a server (or 4) :whistling:

    Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core E2180 Processor (2.00GHz,800MHz,1MB cache), Genuine Windows Vista® Home Premium with Service Pack 1, 32-bit - English

    this @ dell.com deals (link on dell home page- vostro 400 slim case)

    that pc should do for doing most games and tasks (not crysis etc :whistling:) thats 210.33 with vat and shipping

    the tesco one has 2 x the ram and a bigger hard drive but the one above is good enough, and more ram and hard drive can be added easily
