    Best Place to get a Pre Built PC?

    I would build this myself but I have my hands full lately with work and uni etc.
    Basically I need to get hold of a pre build pc.

    I'm thinking scan, ccl, dell, mesh etc???

    Budget: £500,

    Requires: Monitor, OS, keyboard and mouse.

    Usage: Pretty much a family computer, web browsing, odd light game etc.

    Many thanks in advance

    Dell is what I'd get for that if it is for that little money all in.
    Inspiron One 22 is a very simple way of doing it, but it's not a great performer fromt he looks of it, certainly no gaming really, but very simple to use etc and visually quite nice I guess.

    Mesh customer service is not meant to be great IIRC. However,they do use HEC PSUs in their PCs which are not too bad.

    Scan and OcUK are meant to have decent pre-built PCs but TBH I would look at Dell first as they can have some great deals.

    I would check this website out for the latest deals:

    Re: Best Place to get a Pre Built PC?

    If I was to include a monitor plus peripherals in the scan systems then it would go well over £500, unless I'm missing something.

    The dell ones on the other hand is more realistic

    Inspiron 570 MT (D005712)
    http://configure.euro.dell.com/dells...l=en&cs=ukdhs1
    Includes monitor and cheap speakers.

    Although I could go with an athlon II x2 instead what do you think??
