    £300 isn't bad at all for that new (with warranty?)

    Generally reliable and quiet machines although i can't comment on that particular model. The HP desktop I used to buy for work was the quietest PC i've ever had though (that I didn't build myself ), Kudos to HP even though I hate them.

    Their laptops caused me nothing but trouble (around 50% faliure rate) and their warranty incidently was appauling. On site mean.. come to site.. decide they cant fix it and take it away for "up to 18 days" (... 30 ish in some cases).

    The desktops however were always very good.

    Thanks
    The spec looks excellent for the price!! I assume this a refurbished machine?? The only main issue I have with many pre-built PCs from Dell,HP and similar companies is that they often use the power supplies with the minimal wattage possible to do the job.

    Re: HP Elite 9373

    I used to buy the latest and the greatest before and i found i never fully utilized most of the stuff i paid over the odds for...i remember paying £400 for 7800GTX..a while back and could count in one hand number of time i played games on it.

    The power supply will probably be bare minimum for the job..but i dont plan on taxing it too much. on my current setup i lost my £150 psu last summer and resorted to using a 300watt one i had laying around and it does a good job.

    the pc is as new, from what i hear, they were sent to customers for demo and sent back, most of them never used.
