Found 29th Dec 2007
My dad is after a PC to mainly play newly released games that his is not powerful enough to play can someone sugest either a buy off the shelf jobey or a Dell to the right sort of spec he would require. I know the internet side of things is no big deal but some of the new games out require high graphics cards ETC.

He dont download and he has a stand alone hard drive so not to worried about the size of that.

Looking at spending no more than about £600
