    Where can I buy a dirt cheap computer in the UK?

    I want a really low price. My required specs are quite low :

    -Nvidea graphics
    -CD burner
    -speed/memory... Just something I can use for web design, music and watching videos on. At least 2ghz
    -At least 20gb hard disk
    -Dont really need a monitor

    All the parts needed to build a computer are available here at good prices: http://aria.co.uk/

    That's all I know.

    Depends what you mean by cheap.

    http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/pcrange.html?ICO

    Their bottom spec is £210.32

    Icon 2800
    AMD Sempron 2800 64 Bit Processor
    512MB DDR400 PC3200 Single Channel Memory
    80GB Serial ATA II Hard Drive
    SiS High Performance Integrated Graphics & 8x AGP Slot
    52x CD-ROM Drive
    5.1 6-Channel Audio
    1 x RJ45 Network Port (10/100)
    Novatech Keyboard & Mouse

    That does not come with a monitor.

    That price is without an operating system.

    But it does not come with a CD burner... although you can pick them up cheap. My DVD RW cost me £30 from pc world!

    It would be easier to build your own, at least you'd get exactly what you wanted rather than having to compromise.

    whereabouts are you in the uk? look around for firms that recycle old computer stock and sell off cheaply, there's bound to be a place near you. if you're in scotland i'll send you a link if you want

    I'm in Belfast but I have a few contacts in Edinburgh who might be able to help. Might even be heading there for Hogmany but I dunno lol. The novatech ones look nice too. I also liked some of the stuf on here: http://www.cyberiasystems.co.uk/Shop...ls.asp?BS=1115

    I think the price range I'm looking for is between £150 and £250.
