OK, looking a getting a new computer (PC) as my laptop just doesn't cut it with 150MB files in photoshop, and jumps around using Solidworks (a CAD package).

2 of my options are P4 3.2GHz or P4 3.4GHz -for nearly 100GBP (British Pounds) more, is it worth it going for the 3.4? (I would also get a few other upgrades for that, but its the processor I'm interested in, as I don't need another DVD drive)

...and RAM. Is 1024MB enough? Again, its 100GBP to go up to 2048, and I can always upgrade later if need be...

I'm looking at www.cube247.co.uk, choose packages > soho > polaris or atlas

Looking at these guys coz they use nothing but quality bits.

Thanks for the help in advance! Bob

Hi and welcome go Geeks to Go. Deciding on what computer to get is really all about what you plan on doing with it. Everyone has an opinion about what is best, but it still comes down to your choice, and what do you plan on doing with it. Get one that meets your purposes, with as much RAM as you can afford. 1024 (1Gig) is a good start if you can afford it. 512 with room for future expansion is ok too. You can get a computer off the shelf and ready to go, or have it custom built or even build it yourself if you want. Personally I prefer AMD. I have two AMD64 systems. I like them! (just my opinion).
