Hi guys, sorry if I've posted this to the wrong forum.

Basically I havent got the time to build my own PC So I'm looking to buy something from the likes of ebuyer.com I have around £500 and can possible spend a little bit more need be. I'm looking for a system than can comfortably play some of todays games(I'm waiting for Diablo 3 to come out) and handle some of the programs I run. One program of which runs 18 web browsers at the same time automatic tasks.

I have recently brought windows 7 for my current PC which can be added to the new PC if needed.

So if you can choose a system for me which has the best value for money for my needs that would be great

Thanks

Darren.

Have a look on http://cclonline.com because they build computers for lower prices than most, never get a branded pre-built system (e.g: Dell, HP, Packard Bell).
I think an AMD 'Thuban' would be adequate.

You can overclock that 6850 to the 6870 level.

Thanks for the reply guys, if I could go as far as £700 would i be getting much more value for money? And what would you recommend? This computer is going to have to do me for a while so if the extra expense is worth it I'll stretch a little further.

Also do need to worry about overclock components? do they last so long?

Thanks for all your help guys

The best for gaming would be the first one with a HD 6950. For multitasking a lot the X6. Also that one has a crossfire motherboard.
