Is this a good price or shall I wait?

Hi guys,

I want to buy a decent PC primarily for Photoshop and video editing. Do you think this is a good price? There's no Operating System included, I thought about either using the Windows 7 free trial a few more months or waiting another few weeks until Windows 7 is released officially and buy a copy.

Here's the spec:

Core i5 750 2.66ghz
8gb RAM
1TB hdd
512mb 4870 graphics
No monitor or OS

£635inc VAT

Opinions? System priced up from Eclipse Computers so everything should be compatible and I won't have to build it myself.


if you do't want to build yourself than its ok otherwise you can slash 100 quid easily..

By the way, has anyone dealt with Eclipse before? I'm just googling now and getting mixed reviews.... some pretty awful actually...

Thanks - I saw that. I didn't think the Dell was as good value - only 4gb ram, not 8, smaller harddrive and crappy graphics.

Sounds a little expensive and i dont think you can install windows 7 free trial anymore,Expect the price of I5 motherboards and memory to come down a bit in price in the near future,

Thanks folks... I think I'm going to hold off a little longer. I'm sure there'll be some good deals out in a month or so - run up to xmas and Win7 will have launched.

Will have to scrape by on my little netbook until then!
