Decent computer at Amazon

Hi guys,

Have some vouchers to burn at Amazon so want to get a pc with them. Am looking for a fairly decent pc, I guess around the £300-£400 mark. Needs to be a good processor, not a sempron or celeron etc. Needs to be ok for games, nothing special but needs to be able to run driving games like need for speed etc and look good/play well. Would like some kind of small form factor but I guess that'll limit me on graphics and upgradability.

So I guess something like:

Dual core pentium or athlon 4 gigahertz or whatever the standard is these days

1 gb ram

doesn't need a dvd drive but I guess will come with one anyway.

Good graphics card (not sure about these but I would probably spend about £100 on one if I bought it seperately.) Whatever gives the most frames/sec per pound spent.

100gb hard drive (will probably be more but not too bothered.)

No monitor needed!!!

Think that's it, any more details needed please ask.

Thank you all for your help!

Yeah, looking for a desktop to put under my tv. Needs to be good for films/internet surfing and games. I guess any pc is good for the first two but I need to make sure it's up to scratch on the games front. Don't want to play amazing games but would like things like c&c3 and need for speed etc driving games to run without any problems.

Any way to get all the rubbish out of the way when looking through desktop pcs on Amazon. All I want to see is ones sold by Amazon themselves and not loads of microphones wifi cards etc!

Was looking at that one, not sure if the graphics are up to anything and the review says it's only a 250w psu which would need upgrading if I put a graphics card in there. So it's £300 which is good but gonna need at least £100 spent on it to get it up to spec I think.

So it might be the one!

How much in vouchers have you got?

How much in vouchers have you got?

Bit of a personal question!

Enough to buy the pc pretty much.

What do you guys think of this one?

Better processor, more ram and I think a better graphics card. Is this a good enough spec for what I want?
