    No I've had several mates buy systems from them (3) but they were all different systems.
    None of them have had any problems whatsoever and are all as pleased as punch with them.

    Default BUILD your own! It's VERY easy!

    For 900 you could BUILD a VERY nice PC!! If you buy PC's ready built then your always gonna pay through the nose! But I must admit that MESH PC's are reasonably priced considering the quality components they use!

    BUT for that sort of money I would not even consider buying a PC that does not have.

    a) SAMSUNG PC2700 CAS-2.5 DDR RAM at LEAST 512Mb (VERY fast DDR)
    b) 120Gb Western Digital 8Mb CATCH Cavier Hard drive (The fastest IDE Hd to date)
    c) TOP of the range GeForce 4 (or better still Radeon 9700PRO 128MB)
    d) SoundBlaster Audigy Player
    e) A fat 19Inch 0.25mm Hansol Monitor
    f) Award winning mobo

    If you do decide to build your own which is without a question of doubt the best way too get the MOST for your money, then I would recommend www.ebuyer.com as they seem to be the cheapest about.

    hehe, no problem mate

    the ti4200 is the faster card but it's also more expensive..

    in the end it's your call.
