£500 budget, which PC do you buy?

  Gazzyk 13:51 17 Sep 07

I need to get a computer for general use, web browsing, music downloading and for watching media online. I have an external hard drive for music so i am not too worried about the hard drive size but i want a decent PC with reasoable sized monitor, keyboard and mouse. Where on earth do i start looking?

(Not advertising) A good site to use is Dell for building your PC from scratch online to see what you can afford. Also there are a few good dealers in the PC Advisor magazine so it may be worth looking.

click here the Inspiron 531 at £479 inc 19" widescreen + 2Gb RAM. I wouldn't even bother looking anywhere else. I would be tempted to get the 256MB nVidia GeForce 8600GT graphics card for an extra 50 squid but the one in there is fine.

I echo GANDALF <|:-)> suggestion or this one from PC World click here

Both excellent deals,but i think i would opt for the PC World deal simply for the fact of having the Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E4500.

Though not a lot of difference,you get a lot for your money lately.
