    My 14 year old son has managed to trash the old Dell desktop I bequeathed to him and is thus in need of a new PC (just the working parts - monitor etc are all to hand). Does anyone have any recommendations for an off the shelf desktop PC on which he can do his homework and which will run games like Call of Duty but isn't going to put me in the poorhouse. I don't want to spend more than about £400 and preferably much less, but, as a Mac user, I know fcuk all about all this. Thanks.

    Well I have one of these going spare HP Pavilion Elite m9060n PC (GN584AA) specifications - HP Home & Home Office Products

    Its the Doris' but since she has a new laptop she doesn't use it anymore. I'll need to connect it up and confirm the exact spec for you, but its about 18 months old and a decent machine, it was top spec at the time. It has a 19" LCD monitor as well if you want it.

    For a small donation to Hols4Heros and the cost of postage you are welcome to it. Let me check on postage first too as I would have to send it from Holland, but I'm sure we can get in under 400 quid without too many problems.
