First of all, my apologies for asking what must be the 1000th question on 'what PC should I buy'! I've an ageing 6 year old system comprising of a Athlon 3000 XP, 1gb Ram and standard Asus mobo. For me, my next choice of parts is really important to a) make sure I don't go over budget and b) future proof as much as possible. I've looked at the buyers guide for this month and although I love the idea of getting a £400 PC, I'm really tempted to spend a little more on a Core i5 system for a bit more future proofing. However, I'm currently using a 19" TFT so the resolution won't be too challenging for any new hardware. I'll be using the computer for mostly gaming with some normal office work and internet browsing on the side. My question is, should I take the buyers guide and use this as a basis for a £400 (ish) system or spend more for a little future proofing? I think I could stretch to £700 including OS (Windows 7 although I'm not sure how much this costs yet). It's been a long long time since I've bought any parts so I will need some solid help and advice on this. I'm sure I've missed something so please feel free to ask any questions - thanks for reading.
