^ I don't believe i've ever used one of those and i've built a hell of a lot of computers! But yeh as Vlad said, if you need any help there's a shed load of us here to help.
Woohoo It'll be over the summer so everyone will be super bored and want to help me.

There should be a special 'building your computer' forum

Best computer for £800 (IMO) --> http://www.meshcomputers.com/Default...DUCT&KEY=70591

But, I'd agree that you may be able to get slightly better value for money if you built your own.

The X2 is waaaaaaaaaaaay over the top for just forums/internet/work etc.

The graphics card, despite having 512MB of RAM is also pretty average.

Will it still be over the top when Vista arrives, or then just an average PC? I want a PC that will run Vista well when it comes out.

With:

7600GT [+£100]

Would seem to fit all the requirements of the games

With the extra 512MB [+50] would be perfectly fine for the Forums/Internet/Work

It doesn't actually look too bad, especially as it comes with a TFT monitor.

It's not going to win any prizes for speed, but it's certainly not a rip off.

edit: I wouldn't even consider buying it for gaming though, only Internet/Work/Music listening/DVDs etc.

Fabulous. I just reserved one to pick up tomorrow

Would it run games OK? I mean, my bf won't be playing MMORPGs (WTF?) but perhaps other games.

EDIT: I'd be looking to put Vista on it next year, would it handle that OK?

It wont flat out refuse to play the games, but it wont really be pushing them past Low/Medium detail really, the CPU is ok, RAM is sufficient but the graphics is designed more with desktop work in mind, not gaming (one of the ways they keep the costs low and the profits high)
