    Desktop PC

    My 11 year old PC has just bitten the dust. I need a new machine. Can anyone recommend what to go for?
    Had a quick look and I'm totally bewildered!
    It's mainly for Internet browsing + video processing (flip videos etc.)
    Will not be a gaming PC.
    Spec required is as follows:
    Pre - built, Win7 included, at very least dual core, 1TB disk would be good. 500Gig minimum.
    (I have a monitor)

    An absolute max of £500 cash to splash.

    Thanks for any feedback. Much appreciated.....

    Cheers

    how about Novatech? I've always used them (building PCs). Their customer service is excellent. You can get Win7 Home Edition with the linked PC for £474 or Pro for £505.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks pal

    I went for Chillblast. The economy model beefed up. Not the cheapest but these guys have excellent service record and a two year warranty.

    Chillblast Fusion Cyclops

    I added
    Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
    Radeon HD 5450 512MB Graphics Card
    AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition 3.2GHz Processor

    Should be here by the end of next week.........

    For £500, your best bet is amd phenom x6, this can be built by me for £500. If not by me, search around for AMD phenom as AMD are seriously cheap and understated CPUs.
