It isn’t everyday that my inbox is lighting up with news of a gaming system with 8GB of RAM, Quad-Core Q6600 processor, 750GB HDD, 22″ screen and a 8600GT 512MB graphics card, and thats quite surprising, because the price of this thing makes it an everyday kinda PC; £938 incl VAT (£799 Excl).
You can take home this beaut of a system right now, from their site, and the rest of the stats are after the hop.

Top this off with a 22” widescreen monitor for spine-tingling realism and this really is the gaming daddy.
A full 8GB of the fastest DDR2 memory ensures that games load rapidly and applications run at optimal speed. The memory also comes with a lifetime warranty so on the rare occasions you switch it off you’ll be able to sleep at night.
