Affordable, Relaible PC?

  Rogmur 09:58 19 Aug 06

Hello to all Consumer Watch Forum Members

I am hoping to replace my very unreliable Mesh PC and purchase a new one.

However, (as with buying a car), I want to buy a PC which is reliable, affordable and has at the very least a separate Graphics card, Sound card and 19" Monitor.

I have looked at a number of major websites but have bee put off by the excessive prices (Evesham take note).

I wonder if it is possible to find one for under £1200????

Well there a challenge

Kind regards

That ain't a challenge!!!

you want a system with separate graphics and sound and a 19inch tft - 1200quid target.

See current threads on this forum about zoostorm customer service

Dell desktop 5 series will give you what you want for far less than £1200. Don't be frightened to haggle for a reduction in web price by phoning or e-mailing sales

There's plenty of offers around in the price range that you mention. It is just a case of buying correct, with the safeguards of consumer law protection.
