    Need a Desktop!

    Hi all,

    I need a desktop computer - however, I am really skint at the moment!

    I can find a 15" LCD TV for around £90 (or so) at the moment, and my ABSOLUTE budget is £350. so a base up to £250 would suffice (if cheaper, that's great :thumbsup: )

    I'm not a huge gamer nor a video editor - but I would like a fast, modern computer which I can upgrade if I need to. 512MB min memory, not fussed about processor - as long as it's fast and modern!

    I use the internet a lot, and multi task through normal applications.

    I have gone to ebuyer and seen an Acer Aspire T180 with AMD Sempron 3200+ (Excl monitor) for £234 - with 15" LCD = £294.

    However, I LOVE this site and I know everyone loves searching for a bargain, so if you can find me a nice, decent speedy computer I'll be really grateful!!

    p.s I know you're thinking if i'm skint why buy a computer? I got a £250 grant from my university and £100 for xmas to buy one of these. Trying to study from a laptop is a real pain!

    If you wait until tomorrow, Mike normally finds some good cheap Dell deals on the Hot Deals board.

    I've been looking but they seem to be a beyond my budget?

    I'm sure Mike posted a good PC for £350 last week.
    I'll have a look.

    Seen this one before...and just now before you posted!

    2 basic units that would probably suit your needs...as would the acer one on ebuyer..just require a cheapo keyboard/mouse with the ones above...so you'll be using the TFT TV as the monitor..are you sure it has a VGA input (D sub 15 pin)

    If you can stretch to £388 the one dino has recommended is a better PC...remember quidco cashback applies to all the above mentioned..5% with Dell, 3% with PCNEXTDAY and 1.5 % with EBuyer
