PCW are flogging a medion with AMD Athlon Xp 3000+ processor for .....£610. The HD is 80Gb but I think the rest looks the same. Type MEDION 3000SR into PCW's search.

They are also flogging a Medion 3200 POWER, 17" monitor and 160Gb HD for 848 squid. Like the other one it has a DVD writer and a larger (256Mb) graphics card.

...and they are flogging the above, sans monitor, for 750 squid but they appear to be OOS at pres.

The graphics is the lowly FX5200 at pcw as compared to the top-notch Radeon ATI 9800XL in the Aldi ones. Wait for stocks to come in. Toyrus have Medions with better specs than the ones at pcw. I believe Staples have them too. Investigate before plunging for the pcw ones.

Thanks for replys so far, would the graphics card make that much difference and is the amd 3200 as good as the intel 3.06?

Aldi sold out of the Medion computers. Not in my hometown.(;o))

If you are not an avid gamer the card and the processor will make no difference. Even if you are a gamer the difference will be debatable.

The difference between the FX5200 and the ATI9800XL is nearly £200. The FX 5200 is on its way out. You can now but it for about £40-£45. Also if you want to edit videos, the difference would be immense.
