    Good spec Desktop PC

    I'm looking for a "base unit", I dont need a monitor/keyboard/mouse/operating system etc.

    Will mostly be used for applications such as photoshop, 3d max, dreamweaver etc and occasional gaming - doesnt have to play the very newest games but a decent card that can play games from i guess a couple years back at least?

    One pre built is fine or a list of items to buy (and where from) is also fine as i'm happy to build it if it works out cheaper. Budget is around £400 tops - so what can i get for my money?

    Thanks for any suggestions!
