So ive got £800 to spend on a desktop and I've looked at the reviews in countless magazines and websites and i'm still not 100% sure, if you had £800 in your hand right now, what system would you buy??????????

I wont be using it for gaming, just want a solid, great value, fast desktop.

Help!

Go to PCWorld, look all PCs at your price range and pick up one at your price range

only one advice, get a good 17" LCD monitor

But also read recent threads concerning the standard of after sales service before you go to MESH.

Caveat emptor!

Heaven knows why my post appears three times. It certainly wasn't my doing.
