    Desktop PC wanted

    Hi all.

    I'd quite like a new computer, and have about £350 as my budget.

    I don't need a monitor, but, I do need a graphics card with two monitor inputs (I want to use a normal pc monitor as my main monitor, and my hdtv as my secondary one).

    The graphics card doesn't need to be immense, as I'm not a big enough PC gamer, but be able to run two monitors without lag.

    As well as this, I need 750gb-1.5tb harddrive (pref more than one harddrive so its easier to backup)

    I would need Vista as well, and a relatively quick processor, (I do alot of multitasking). and 3gb of ram would be ideal.

    Is it possible to get that for around this price?

    The dell vostro 400 deal the other week was perfect; hotukdeals.com/ite…470

    but it expired before I got paid.

    Does anyone know of anywhere I could get such a deal like this again?

    Would be greatly appreciated!
    thanks.

    Thanks.

    Thanks, but not really anything I'm looking for in there.

    The £55 and delivery was for dell outlet, the site for refurbished PC's, I think.
    Apart from that I can't really help you... possibly save a bit of money by buying one 500/750GB hd and when that starts to get full buy another? They are dropping in price a few pounds a week at the moment.. Depends on how quickly you fill them and would obviously be more hassle to backup...

    The X3100 is an onboard graphics chip so it's probably only got one monitor output, as is the 950.
