Budget Range: up to £800 as long as its a good deal, rather get moneys worth than top top components that are overkill/overpriced.
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming/movies/uni work (guess this one should be first really :L)
Are you buying a monitor: eventually but have an old one that will suffice for now.
Do you need to buy OS: Yes
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Whatver is good for UK buyers :L
Location: UK , Cheltenham
Parts Preferences: intel, but not fussed.
Overclocking: maybe, not a computer genius but ive read bits so maybe an option.
SLI or Crossfire: probably not.
Your Monitor Resolution: Not actually sure as its not hooked up to anything to check.
Additional Comments: Games that i play (SWTOR, Total War series, FM, GW and similar games)
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Only have a chromebook atm, good for uni very undistracting :L
Recently Alienware have pretty much had 20% off thier systems and ive never built a PC before wondering if some of their current deals are worth it or if i should build my own depending on price differences etc.
As an example they have the X51 with :
I3 2120 3.3ghz
1GB GT 640
6GB RAM 1333 Mz (pretty crappy i know but easy enough to upgrade i would guess)
1 TB 7,200 RPM HD (see above)
£450 Which too me seams pretty decent but like i said not a computer genius so no idea if thats any good or even good value, any comments on whether that would suit my needs or i can do better by building myself freatly appreciated.
