    Hey Guys :)

    I am looking to buy an entry level computer and I have about £300 I want to spend on this.

    It will be used mainly for a little light photo editing, some web browsing, watching a few videos on YouTube etc.

    Which out of the following 3 is best and why?
    I am a bit novice-y on computer hardware, is ram more important or the processor speed?

    1) Asus Desktop - £299.99 at Argos

    2) Asus Desktop - £299.00 at Currys

    3) Acer Desktop - £219.59 at Amazon

    With option 3 I would buy a monitor separately.

    Thanks for your help :)

    Cheers, Rob

    Hi again,Link 1 from Argos does not tell you the GHz & so it would most probibly be the lowest of the AMD dual cores.

    Link 2 is a dual core 2.6GHz.

    Link 3 having a very poor AMD E1 1200 running at 1.4GHz x2 is not good at all.

    Out of the 3,then link 2 is best.

    The 3 of them are very poor in today's market & they are also over priced.
