Wink Anybody want a challenge?

I know it'll be very clear to anybody reading this that i am very lazy and can't be bothered doin the work myself, but, as I know NOTHING about computers, here goes. I have 300 pounds that i would like to put towards getting myself a computer (not much i know but iam a student) does anybody there think they could tell me the best way to spend my money, what to spend it on, and where to spend it? just a challenge if anyone's interested

If your country has them, (I think that you are in UK - talking about pounds), I reccomend Staples. They are exxelent and have many good systems for good prices.

Are you pretty good with computers?
You can get a new mobo, CPU and RAM for that which should improve your system!
