So...I need a new PC. Where is good to get them from these days? Only requirement is that I can plug in my "old" IDE harddrives, if only to copy the data off.



Get these bits (or wait for the next value guide, which should be soon), put them together.

Worked for me, anyhow, and I'm not that hardware astute.

Cool. That's a good start. I could probably afford to beef up the spec a bit too.

I've pondered Dell already. Not 100% sure if it's the way forward. They build some shiny boxes, but the tech level is universally linear. If you want a shiny gfx card, you have to have the really shiny CPU rather than the not quite so shiny one. So it all costs more.

Building my own is also a good plan, but as I stated in the post originally, I've no idea where is good to get stuff from.
