I don't want a mac.

The thing I'm most worried about is getting the OS and drivers and shizzle all working fine. I'd rather be 100% sure it'll work than 80%, and money isn't that much of an issue (just got £3.4k in from my loan so ;>); I think I'll probably just get a pre-made one. In that case what do you guys recommend using? Is there a site I can choose all of the parts and shit from and have it made and set up, or should I just bite the bullet and do it myself/go with a company like Dell or what have you? I don't want to spend 300 quids for some retard to push some bits together and install windows if possible :)

Just went with a bit of a beast from Dell after my guild recommended it. I have cash to burn so what the hell.

It's got a pretty sick graphics card.

GUYS THERE ARE RAMIFICATIONS TO THIS PURCHASE: I WILL BE ABLE TO PLAY DOTA.

I was going to answer that with an equally large Windows image but that would imply I felt any degree of loyalty to the product.

You'd better register a dleague account now, cos it takes two weeks after creation before you can actually play.

Oh and use a different e-mail address e.g. your uni one because uh, if you remember, there was an accident with your old account and they probably check that shit.

I'm actually wrestling with Vista as we speak to try and get it to let me do what I want to do with my computer :(

Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E6750 processor (2.66GHz, 1333MHz, 4MB cache)
2048MB 800MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM [4x512]
20in E207WFP WIDESCREEN UK/Irish Black (1280X800) with TrueLife TCO99
512MB nVidia® GeForce® 8800GT graphics card
320GB Dual Hard Drive Non RAID (2x160GB - 7200rpm)

Unfortunately the card I paid with was declined, almost certainly due to them not having my address from the bank. It's all like "lol use your home address f@ggot" but then I won't get my compo ;[[[. Guess I'll have to get my mum to send it up or some shit. SURPRISE.

edit: 700 squids, a fair amount of that on the graphics card and the nice widescreen. Looking forward to it a lot.

Yea, i bet that widescreen will be sexy.
I wish I had 3.4k :P

I had a similar problem with payment, so I just put it on my parents credit card! Free PC!

means it's just two hard drives giving double the storage instead of two hard drives storing redundant data in the form of parity bits to backup the main data
