With my student loan coming in a few weeks (hopefully sooner then later ) I thought to myself I'm going to treat myself to a brand new computer. I don't often upgrade my computer so I tend to buy a new one every so many years. I have a budget between £1000 and £1200 (Max) I'm going to need the full system as well a monitor as my 19" wide-screen at the moment is dying (ghosting and dead pixels). The only thing I'll be keeping out of my old machine is the 2 IDE hard drives as these will be used for extra storage for my music and pictures etc... I'm a pretty heavy gamer, with the use of general office applications, web browsing, music playing and image editing. I logged onto ebuyer.com and with what limited knowledge of what I thought/think is good, I came up with this list. This is where I need some help, for a guy like myself who is studying IT (well im studying the network side of it ) im pretty far behind on what's new technology and what is good in terms of quality and speed. Thanks P.S - I'm from the UK so it would be needed to be from a UK on-line retailer and I don't mind shopping on different websites to order different parts for this computer.
