Default Cheap, Performance Build.

Hey, First post new here, Basically, It's time to upgrade my PC, So Dell i went, I need it for Small amounts video editing, Nothing Big, and Small amounts of gaming (COD4 MW2, CM DiRT, Racedriver Grid) They need 3ghz, 1gb ram, you know the score. Also the Case is small and quiet!

This is my plain (REMEMBER BUDGET!) £289.00

PROCESSOR : Intel® Pentium® Dual Core Processor E6500 (2.93GHz, 1066MHz FSB, 2MB L2 Cache) edit

OPERATING SYSTEM : English Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium (32 BIT)

MEMORY : 1024MB (1x1024) 1333MHz DDR3 Single Channel (Will upgrade in time)

Hard Drive : 160GB Serial ATA (7200RPM)

Graphics : 512 MB NVIDIA GeForce G310

Optical Drive : 16X DVD+/-RW Drive

Will it do what i want?

Thanks

If I'm not mistaken.

£289.00 = $441.00
Please correct me if I'm wrong, lol.

You could build your own, better than this Dell for that price.

I wouldn't pay Dell for anything.
3/4 of the computers the pass through my work for repairs are Dells.

There are usually people you can find online to assemble a computer for you, with quality parts.
