Hi guys, I am looking to replace my aging HP Pavillion PC. The PC shall be used by myself, my partner and eventually my baby boy. I want the PC to last for most tasks, so I can pass it on to the boy when he gets older. I would like the system to be easily upgradable.

The PC is to be purchased in the UK.

I have never built a PC before, but would not rule it out if it means getting a vastly improved system for my money. My budget is a guide.

My budget for the new computer is: 600 - 850

What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? Web browsing, HD streaming, Music/Video playing, Office work, Gaming, storage

What software do you intend on using on the computer?

OS: Windows 7/Ubuntu 11.10 duel boot
MS/Open office
Firefox
Mozilla Thunderbird
VLC
Music player
Avast
Some kind of photo/video suite
Burning software
Games


Do you play games? If so, what type of games?


I would like the PC to play most games that are available. I am not too concerned with ultra high settings, but I would like the PC to comfortably hold its own. I like plying MMORPGS and FPS but I can get my fix for FPS from my Xbox. I would like to play the new stars wars old republic on a decent setting.


Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it?

I want the PC to handle multi tasking well


Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?

Yes




Needed:
Wireless card
Minimum 1TB storage
Stylish casing (eye candy) Not too huge and relatively quiet
HD monitor (biggest, sharpest for budget)

Desired:
SSD for OS and applications
2 monitor compatible


Any recommndations welcomed. Thanks muchly
