Hmm £200 won't go far tbh. For that kind of money you might be able to game but the experience will be pretty rotten. Believe me when I say that a good gaming PC is a worthwhile investment as tbh specs aren't increasing rapidly enough for it to become obsolete that quickly, ie you'll get a pc now at mid-range and it'll be fine in 4-5 years. Plus of course you'll also have a pretty good dev box while you're at it (don't forget you can dual-boot if you want a dev linux environment for instance) so you could write it off as a business expense ;) On 1 August 2013 13:54, Mark Chitty <mark.chitty at thisliquidspace.com> wrote: > > TBH any modern pc in the £500 range these days will do a decent job of > > gaming. > > > trouble is I don't want to spend that much :o) I'm thinking more along the > lines of £200 ... > > thing is, I've got a drive, 500W PSU and a box handy, it might be a better > option to DIY.

Java dev with a fairly full plate, so not really looking for any freelance work either.
