Default Desktop Computer

Hi there I have a limit of 500-600 on a desktop computer has to be prebuilt and provide some sort of warranty. It being used for gaming and internet and the occasional bit of work. I was looking at the Dell XPS 420. Is this the right choice? Thanks in advance

Tom

Would you by any chance be interested in building your own? You can get a lot more for your money, the choice of parts is much greater, and you can build to your own needs.

id suggest popping into your local pc world/currys. they can usually do some sort of deal (they did for both my pc's), and you can actually see them, not just a pic, and sometimes i find their website is crap (typo's,etc)
dont expect top notch machines, but im guessing you will want it from a high street shop?
