Bargain PC?

Recommended Posts

Me mother is complaining that her PC is really slow so I said I'd get her a new one for Christmas. Anyone know where I can get a good deal? I'm looking to spend about £300 because she doesn't need out mega, just faster to browse and open big mails and that.

 

I don't really want to get a Monitor, Keyboard or mouse so if you know anywhere that they aren't mandatory that'd be even better.

 

Cheers

 

Otherwise, what would I need to buy to make hers faster and is it easy to fit? Like as easy as a new drive?

 

PS my lack of knowledge on these matters shames me :unsure:

I think you should go for a Dell instead, much more reliable than the ones from Nelson Mandela house, Peckham !

Thanks. I get 7% discount off them through work so it's canny, but they force you to take a monitor, Keyboard anmd mouse. I was hoping to shave off a few quid elsewhere.

and so it should!!

 

some more memory would make the biggest difference for the least price. Crucial have a handy little download that scans your PC and tells you exactly what type you need to buy.

Cheers Everyone.

 

It seems you can get systems without a monitor from Dell.

 

I got her one from Dell for £179. Bargain (I think)

 

Intel® Celeron® D Processor 325 (2.53GHz, 533fsb, 256K cache)

1024MB Dual Channel DDR400 (2x512MB)

80GB (7,200rpm) Hard Drive

 

I could have got it for £149 with a CDR rather than RW and without a modem, but I thought I'd treat the old dear.
