I'm just annoyed with my pc now, so for christmas I told my mum I wanted a new PC Smile But no idea what kind to get.
I want something with
    a decent video card, geforce 7000+
    1024 ram
    not a dell Rolling Eyes
    80+ gb hard drive
Can you narrow it down to like a list of a few computers which would suit me? It'll mainly be used for gaming. Thanks

It would help to know what your budget is, and what you use it for. You say you want a gaming machine - what games? I assume you don't just want it for solitaire!

Dell are OK, although pricey. Acer are OK also. It would help if you can let me know what country you are in, I only really know the UK market (although Dell and Acer are international).

Price doesn't really matter, around ?800ish max. As for games.. I play them most of my spare time.. http://www.xfire.com/profile/ohwhen Rolling Eyes But games that are first person shooters and stuff so it aint laggy and my ping is good when I play online. As for dell, I just don't trust them, my friends laptop kept on breaking after the first week over and over again and dell were not very supportive about it. As for country.. I live in Scotland, which is in the UK incase you never knew Rolling Eyes

I would go with something like this from Savastore:
Aries Perfecta Duo 6400 PC System

The base price is ?659.95 however you can configure it to your requirements. I would go for a 400W PSU, to be on the safe side, and if you want a better graphics card, you can do so within budget.

See what you think. Savastore are a fairly good company.
