help! which one is the best?

  MUPPET1 12:36 08 Feb 05

please help. I have a small budget and am planning to buy a new pc for family use (general office, digital photography etc.) My son (who is now 5) may play some games on it as well, in the future....

I have seen these 2 systems at click here
elite m550 PCX (0305) OR MATRIX 2800.

Which is the better one to buy (value for money and to last / possibly upgrade?)
thanks to anyone that can help

it is great machine and it is their best buy as well

another posibility is spend £100 more to get big monitor and faster machine, Matrix M3000 click here, just one slight problem, this one has not got DVD writer, you can upgrade one for £30 extra

what I would do with the budget you set, get Matrix M3000, but upgrade to DVD writer for £30 and upgrade to FX5500 graphics card for extra £50, then it will be a perfect machine and get every family member amused for a few years

what are the benefits of upgrading graphics card? (I am new to the world of computers and it's techno terms and devices)
