Buying a new Custom made PC
My PC (P4 3.2GHz, 2Gb DDR1 - over 5 years old!) has finally started to kick the bucket so, I think I'm gonna need a new one and pretty soon! It's been long enough now so I'm looking for a decent enough rig that can handle the latest games, but I will also be doing a lot of work and virtualisation (VMware Workstation) on there too. I haven't kept up with what's the latest, 1366, 1155, 1156? X58, P55, H67, SandyBridge? It's all new to me!
I've already got a Corsair 620w PSU, so I can salvage that from my old PC and I am inclined towards getting the Antec P183 case as it's nice looking case and reasonably silent seeing as it will be sitting in my living room (also acting as a Media Centre!) I have a WinTV HVR-1300 which I will salvage from the old PC too.
Budget wise, I'd ideally like to remain at the lower side of £800, but I may push towards an absolute maximum of £1000.
Also, I need to buy a reasonably minimal computer desk that will accommodate a case like the Antec P183.
Things I don't need:
Monitor (Got a Samsung SM2333HD)
I have 2 DVD-RW drives, both are IDE.
Windows 7 (Have a freebie from Microsoft that I have yet to use!)
Could someone please very kindly spec me something nice?
Any help is very much appreciated! :)
