    Similar in performance or with the current versions of it's components (i.e. more performance)? I would think somewhere between £800 and £1000 for equivalent performance and probably closer to £1500 for the current version of the same system.

    You can do better than that sytem you missed out of so I would be happy and if you replaced parts before you will have no problems putting to together a PC. A current i5 system is better than that i7 so that is somewhere to start looking
