PC Build - £1200 Budget

29 Mar 2006
Manchester, UK
I have a budget of £1200 for a new pc, I like the specs of the new Core 2 Duo chips but if anyone would recoment AM" i am open to change my mind. I need the PC for work so it needs to be good for multitasking and running Dreamweaver and photoshop but i also want to use it for gaming and general use. So i basicly need a great all round performer. Ive looked at a few things myself but dont know what to get so i could use some help. :D

I'd probably opt for something like this, it is way under the budget but beyond this point I think you are rapidly getting into the laws of diminishing returns.
