Hello

I am looking to purchase a new PC. My budget in a max of £1200. I would like to be able to run the latest games and have enough room for video editing.
I had a trip out to PC World which was a bit disappointing.
I realise that this is a popular question but any advice/recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

I would go for one of these, with a nice monitor of your choice (my choice would be Samsung 930 BF)

Have you tried MESH????

I know for some Dell click here is a bit boring but a look at these is worthwhile, the advice from rmcqua is also endorsed.

Must point out that I'm still waiting for mine to arrive (not the same spec); but it's worth going to their site, having a play with configurations & reading testamonials page.

Is the X18OOXL a good graphics card

Sorry - not too hot on graphics cards. I picked one of the higher end ATI cards from the drop-down list.

I'm sure there's people who can give you a view.

The website gives you the option to select most mainstream nVidia or ATI cards, from budget to high-end.
