  1. Can hardly believe that my beloved p4 machine is 6 years old this month. It's only really started to get shown up in the last year or so.

    So I've been chewing over new PC options. The aim has been to get a decent new system and good monitor for £800 or so.

    So, I've picked out the following choices from ebuyer. Ebuyer is the only close equivalent to newegg here in the UK. Let me know what you think and if you see anything incompatible / glaringly poor choices.

      Hmm. Are 15k drives noisy tho? Smallest capacity on ebuyer is 73GB and it's well over £100, I don't think it's worth it tbh.

      Updated - changed the HD and some prices changed today;

      I would've gone with an AMD Phenom II 940 Black Edition. Mainly because I am.
      It would be an extra £40.00 for Processor putting you a little over budget. But it's faster than the Q6600 and it doesn't have multiplier restrictions. You could get a AMD Gigabyte mobo for same price as that Intel:
