Or get a job like mine.... All PC's that are replaced are never more than 3 years old and we get them for free if we need one!

So I have a 2nd hand P4 2ghz, 1.5 gigs of RAM, ATI Radeon 8500 with 64 MB...... etc

Oh and 21" Samsung Sync Master.... 12 months old when I got that....

and with a mate who is a mechanic, life is cheap!

Nothing for with that for less than £300. It's better specced than mine and mine is perfect for internet use, photo storage, word processing, etc...

it's the way of IT.... has been for years, you buy a PC and a better deal comes along....

Cos if you wait, you will see a PC and then you will think, hmmmm, but something better will come along....

Just buy it... Job Done
