My desktop PC is eight years old now and is grinding to a halt on a regular basis. It’s a Dell machine running Windows Vista. It’s served me well, but I’ve tinkered with it as much as I can and don’t think I can eek out any more from it.
So I’m looking for a new one. Who makes good desktop PCs these days? I only need a tower unit (I have monitors, keyboard, mouse, printer etc), and it’s unlikely that I’ll be playing many games on it, however, I will be using CAD/graphics programmes, so it’ll need a bit of beef in that department.
Ideally, I’d like to keep it below £500. I could build one myself, but I’d need a fair bit of advice on the components and their compatibility.
I may be able to salvage some bits from my current machine. Would this be worth it?
Any links or articles that would help me would be much appreciated too!
