    Yeah Ive always had good experience with them two, which is why their site was the first I visited.

    Was just wondering if there was anything else I should be lookin at before committing! :)

    Well I don't think it really matters on the brand these days. Just make sure it has what you want, and that it has some room to expand (RAM, spare PCI's etc.)

    Obviously Dell *seem* to offer pretty good support as well.

    Dell support is hard to get thru to, but they have the largest market share in the business, so they're gonna have a lot of calls going in.

    They're seriously good on price, but they can be somewhat limited on upgrade potential..

    Personally, I build my PCs, and as I'm in the trade, I get stuff dirt cheap anyway, but definitely go to a few people and get quotes, get a quote off a local independent, and if you tell me what you want/need, I'll see if I can sort u a quote matey.

    Cheers bro!

    Not after anything too fancy, just really looking for a basic home-use PC. Cd-Writer is essential, not fussed about DVD. As long as it works good, and doesnt fuck up all the time I'll be a happy man!

    Also has anyone had any experience with Tiny?

    They have some good prices on their site, although the only ISP they come with is Supanet?

    So a 2.8GHz/256/80/CDRW/128 Graphics would do? Don't go the way of PC World/Tiny. Its not worth the hassle, I could build you a PC for the same money if not cheaper and it'd actually work.

    If you're leaning towards a particular quote, post it here and I'll see how cheap it is.
