Second place

However, since you’re going to be staring at the flat-panel for long periods of time, we think it’s important for the image to be as sharp as possible. The Mirai is solid on this front – it gets our nod above the third-placed Evesham’s GNR TS902W, for example – but it can’t compare to the Chillblast’s HannsG HW191DP.

The Mesh surpasses the Chillblast in two areas: its fantastic sound facilities (the best in the chart) and the hard drive, a vast 500GB model that will take some filling.

In other respects the Elite struggles to stand out. It plays host to the E6600 processor and 2GB of DDR RAM found in the majority of its competitors, while the graphics card is the relatively undramatic 320MB GeForce 8800 GTS. Mesh manages to coax some decent framerates from this card, but if it’s high gaming speed you’re looking for, pick one of the PCs with a 640MB card: the Chillblast or the Zoostorm.

The Mesh Elite GTS Media lacks some of the charm of the Chillblast, but it offers excellent sound facilities and one of the better 22in screens available at this price point. This is comfortably our second choice.

  • Mesh Elite Q6600 R600 PCA power PC

    Mesh Elite Q6600 R600 PCA power PC

    It's been a month of contrasting fortunes for quad-core PCs. While top spot goes to a beautifully measured system from Cube247, the Mesh Elite Q6600 R600 PCA comes fourth. But that's no disgrace.

  • Chillblast Fusion Centaur power PC

    Chillblast Fusion Centaur power PC

    The Chillblast Fusion Centaur's performance in our WorldBench 6 speed suite was pretty much what we'd expect from a machine packing a Core 2 Quad Q6600 processor and 2GB of DDR RAM - a steady 106 points.

  • Mesh E6400 Vistra PC

    Mesh E6400 Vistra PC

    There's a lot about the E6400 that's right. But the lack of any stand-out components makes it one of the weaker £750 Vista PCs we looked at.

  • £751-£1,000 PCs chart: Chillblast Fusion Raider 6600

    £751-£1,000 PCs chart: Chillblast Fusion Raider 6600

    Rather controversially, Chillblast has in the past used overclocking to boost its machines' performance scores, but the Fusion Raider 6600 resorts to no such tricks. Yet it still manages to achieve the highest benchmark figures in the £751-£1,000 PCs chart.

  • £751-£1,000 PCs chart: Zoostorm 4-6405 Advanced PC

    £751-£1,000 PCs chart: Zoostorm 4-6405 Advanced PC

    This new entry from Zoostorm doesn’t quite top the chart but, in fairness, there wasn’t a great deal to choose between the Top Five. The 4-6405 will certainly have its admirers – not least those who are swayed by a 22in display, a mighty size at this price point.
