So I've been interested in getting a new computer for a while, but low on cash since I bought the Ps3 :DD

I really want to play new games on the PC because I'm mostly of a PC gamer. I'm not really good with technology so I have no idea what I'm buying in terms of goodness. I have found a pretty decent computer for £540.59 (Excluding shipping) £600.59 (Including shipping).

Tell me what you guys think. Also please don't give me the same statements such as "Why not build it you're self? It will cheaper." I would if I knew how to and secoundly I'm lazy to do that.

That's where mine came from and I got a bargain of a monster of a beast of a thing!
The computers there seem good. Is it a trust-worthy company though? Sorry I should of saved the item, I kinda lost it.

It had :
2GB
667Mhz DDR2 Memory
500GB Hard Drive
No speakers
AMD Athlon™ 64 5000+
19 inch monitor.

I found this computer on www.meshcomputers.com

It looks great.

Yeah, I've bought a PC off them and not had any issues; it arrived on time and hardware wise has been flawless.

Onto that PC you found:

If you're going to game, don't even bother. If you're looking to game on a PC the Graphics Card IS the most important part of the hardware. Oh and if you can, go Intel for the CPU as they are just better than AMD right now.

[QUOTE="shcndw, post: 0]As I have already stated, I'm not gonna build my own computer for the following reasons.

1st. I don't know how to.
2nd. I can't be asked.[/quote]

1st. I don't know how to.
A: Isn't that what you have friends for? There are PC techs in the city you live in, I'm sure of it. Or, you could just read up and learn from T/E (trial & error)

No. IMO they are the worst, ive never had a good time with them. I have has and used several Dells and they are good at first but over time use wears them down then upgrading them wears them down even more. Unless you want a office computer i wouldnt suggest them.

2GB 667Mhz DDR2 Memory

Good comp, for what your asking, it may not get much better than that.

If you're going to game, don't even bother. If you're looking to game on a PC the Graphics Card IS the most important part of the hardware. Oh and if you can, go Intel for the CPU as they are just better than AMD right now.
As long as your comp offers a graphics card slot dont worry about it, just buy the comp now and buy the graphics card later. Your not going to find a high quality graphics card offered stock in computers.

Also that whole AMD is not as good as intel thing is as opinion based as the whole ps3 pawns 360 debate. Im not bashing him but thats basicly what it is, two differnt companies going at it, some people like intel while others like me prefer AMD. If you want gaming AMD has always been better, yea with the new core two duo processor Intel released they are better ATM, but within a year AMD will again be in the lead with something new.
