Recommend me a PC
Looking for a new desktop as the one I currently have is on it's last legs.. the criteria is below, budget is £400 although the less the better.
1. Should be capable of running two screens (1 VGA, 1 DVI)
2. Must have space for a wireless card
3. Typically used for coding work (Dreamweaver, FTP Transfers, Light Graphic Design), but also play Eve Online during my down time
4. Must come with operating system or be able to install one within budget
I'm toying with this one: Quad Core 4.0ghz, 16GB Ram, 1tb Drive and a 2gb Graphics Card
Or this cheap one: Dual 2.5GHz, 4gb Ram, 320gb HD
Don't need any monitors, mouse, keyboard as I already have them. The first I think is a bit overkill but should future proof it, the second is well within budget but not sure if it will cope...

Here's another one that might be worth looking at (it already comes with a wireless card).
Dell Inspiron 660 - £328.88 (more details on HUKD)
The integrated graphics aren't great, but you could get a PCIe graphics card... Processor
Intel Core i5-3330 Quad Core Processor (3.0GHz-3.2GHz) RAM
: 4GB (1x4GB) 1,600MHz DDR3 (upgradable to 8GB
: 1TB 7,200rpm SATA ODD
: 16x DVD±RW Graphics
: Integrated (Intel HD Graphics 2500) - 1x VGA / 1x HDMI Audio
: Integrated (5.1 HD) Operating System
: Windows 8 (64-bit) Wireless
: Dell DW1506 PCIe Card Extras
: 8-in-1 Card Reader Support
: 1 Year Next Day In-Home Service with Premium Phone Support
The processor in the Dell is also faster than what you get in the eBay and eBuyer PCs.
Zoostorm PCs are typically noisy so I wouldn't consider them myself.

So the eBay one was just using big numbers? I've got a graphics card that is not that old... So could take that out of the current PC.
