    In need of new PC

    Its mostly going to be used for Internet use and as a Media Center (although not going to be in same room as my A/V gear)

    There will be odd occasion when I will play games, but mostly play on my 360 (would like chance to at least may Stalker in all its glory though - dont think my budget will stretch to something that will play Crysis when its out)

    Would like to stick with Windows Vista

    Im impatient so would like a machine that boots and multi tasks quickly
    Also like a machine thats fairly quiet

    Any pointers (oh and please dont say self build, I dont have the time or the patience to do that anymore)

    I know you've asked about a PC

    But if you could live without your games on the computer, and just use your console, have you considered a mac mini?

    Boots up in 20 seconds, and shuts down in 7!
    ROCK SOLID operating system, very quiet, and a very nice media centre called FRONT ROW.

    I await the public stoning for my comments:oops:

    Dunkie,

    Have you considered build one? You can do it with your budget
