the hard drive is a bit on the small side, but hey, youve got the best video card on the market right there. in time upgrading the RAM to 1 gig and youve got yourself a pretty powerful machine. the price is pretty good. i'd go for it.

and please people, he says he wants to buy a computer, so for gods sake dont say 'build your own'. you guys do it every time

I would wait until Christmas. You want a motherboard that is truly capable of PCI Express. That combined with a 64-bit processor from AMD and 1GB of RAM, makes your computer future proof for at least 2 years. You may see it around now, but its only just taking off. Make sure the processor is an AMD for the same reason. Intel have rushed out a 64-bit processor which gets crapped on by the AMD one. You could maybe even get £100 knocked off in January if you want to wait that long. Price is OK though.

yeh same as, im looking 2 get a new one 2, with amd 64 3400+, 1gb memory, dvd-rw x 8, 250gb hard drive, 128mb radeon 9800 pro, n 19" tft, n thats bout £1200 which i spoze is quite good considering its only a few £££ more expensive. plus its like 1/6th of the size of a desktop tower. if ur gonna get a pc, make sure its a half decent one so it lasts longer, worth spening a lil bit more than becoming outdated in 6months i think.
