    12gb and core i9 seems a little toooooo expensive. So its a decent price eh might have to snap it up.

    Haha, working my deek magic on the ladies.

    to me thats an awful price .

    the 1gb is pointless on that gfx card, specially as you haven't said what your main usage will be.

    500gb is rather small these days... again dependant on your usage.

    consider a 1920x1200 24 incher.

    do you really need professional? consider downgrading if none of the pro features will be utilized.

    are you actually going to be watching blu-rays on a 23inch? if not consider a standard drive savings atleast £100

    my 2 cents hth

    Main use will be for playing video games and using programs such as photoshop, 3dsmax6 and other similars. Well I already have a 24 incher. To be honest no I wont be watching blu rays on the screen, but I thought I might download a few movies in blu ray and watch them on my blu ray player?

    the tip i would add for a dell is this

    when i was just about to buy my new pc (had the product code ready), i phoned dell, spoke to a salesperson, asked a few questions (something stupid like how many usb's), then said thank you, i will now finish my purchase online

    then they offered me extras at an amazing price, I got a full 5 year home service warranty for 50 quid, plus 10 percent off my system if i emailed them back when i had received delivery of the unit (which paid for the warranty!)

    well worth trying for what you can get.

    Yeah was thinking of haggling them, but the thought of it is kinda :oops:. But saying I'll buy it online sounds pretty easy in haggling them haha.
