Dear Vonnie,

I assume that price is in pound and versus dollar it seems like a good deal. Maybe a little high without knowing the peripheral prices. Such as monitor, keyboard, mouse, and printer.

I don't recognize a couple of brands but things change when going overseas.

Never-the-less, are you going to build this computer? Or does it come built?

If it comes built with all peripherals it would be a great home or university computer for the price even if you spent a little more.

If your looking for a extreme gaming or advanced business computer this would be low end.

Hope that helps,

:thumbsup: Junkdk

I think this too represents "tried & true" performance.

the video card represents a distinct improvement
over on-board graphics of any kind I think.


and Maxtor's Diamond max Ultra series is what I use.
an ATA/133 is plenty fast, and you'll want to get
that Maxblast program into action from the very start.
It'll make it easy to partition the drive the way your son
might like it. All-in-ALL a PC to be proud of, I'd say.

If you need tips, as in building it yourself, post away. :thumbsup:
