    Hey everyone new here, just need some advice/peace of mind.

    So i want a gaming PC, will be used for internet browsing and the other usual PC tasks as well. Sick of this lump of 'technology' not being able to cope with any PC games.

    Total noob when it comes to PC specs but by reading up i've come to the conclusion i want something with Intel i5 3570k involved.

    My budget 500-600 really and i know you get what you pay for but i cant bring myself to spend anymore than that :nono: .

    Needless to say i have no clue how to build myself so that's not on option. After alot of internet browsing i've found 2 that look pretty decent, would like your thoughts and if you have any other better suggestions please do tell me! :)

    Thanks, Jonny :thumbsup:

    edit - another link i found

    You need to start by looking at the graphics cards in these PCs - the Chilliblast is OK with a mid range HD7770 - the INDS3 has a better cpu but worse graphics (HD6670) and the Mesh one only has a GT620. I couldn't recommend any of these PCs for the price.

    The advantage of Chillblast is that you can chop and change components as part of the build process. :)

    Thanks for the replies everyone.

    There goes my 3 choices out the window ha. That one Davids picked out looks good. The idea of getting one on finance has popped into my mind now, would you guys think that would be a good idea?

    Depends on the finance.....interest free then yes go for it but watch you don't blow your budget because of it, most shop finance have crazy interest rates. Personally I would never pay more than 5% interest.

    I'm in the middle of the same process as you, based in Bristol. Here the computer shops who'll build to order are 10-15% more expensive than Dinopc.com. Hope you have better luck.

    bit of a pain tbh isn't it killie so many options! haha. The shop i emailed haven't got back to me as yet so i might avoid them dinopc is looking a strong option at the minute.

    Thanks brook ill look at those articles should help me decide on what parts keeping the price down.

    Cheers for the replies guys too.

    Don't get confused by the options. They built me a great gaming PCM a year ago , and even gave me a free graphics card upgrade(worth £150) when the one I asked for wasn't in stock. Great service and very helpful with guidance.
