It's good - depending on price. How much is it?

Windows Vista will be redundant come August so make sure you get your free Vista to Win7 upgrade voucher when you buy.

Also make sure you get a real CD for Vista, not a recovery disk.

What are widescreen monitors like?

Well, er, kinda wide.

Better than square monitors I suppose.

Questions to ask the supplier:

Power supply size and manufacturer.
Motherboard model & manufacturer.
Hard disk drives manufacturer.
Video card manufacturer.
Monitor manufacturer.
Memory manufacturer.
Peripherals? (mouse, keyboard and speakers) Make and models.

Yes, it does make a difference and will greatly influence purchase price.

Look at News Editions > Quick News by Sexy Bex at the foot of the main page for loads of reviews. That graphics card is not very good value.

Hmm, perhaps you should have asked here first.

Novatech or OCUK or indeed quite a few other suppliers could have supplied better for the money.

Still, what's done is done, Dell, I'm told, provide a good backup service - Happy gaming :)
