  1. As said in the title, anything within 1000 euro, preferably a bit less but willing to stretch the budget if considered worthy!
  2. Unfortunately, I haven't much knowledge of maling PC's so I sort of have to buy unless somebody can give me a detailed instruction or tutorial on how to :/

  4. No Apple, Alienware, or Dells. They are all overpriced. If you are into the Mac stuff, build a Hackintosh. It will save you a lot of money.
  5. You don't have to have any previous knowledge to build a computer :) Just watch videos (like the ones above) and you can build one yourself easily! Also use pcpartpicker to find great prices for computer parts
  6. It's obligatory, but you should consider building your own computer. I've literally seen children do it, so you don't need to worry that it's too much to learn. And a good PC nowadays will cost you as much as it would if you bought one, and probably preform a lot better for something in that price range.

    This will pretty much have all the parts you need to build a computer.
    Also, this is a little over your budget, but he has other ones that are cheaper.
  8. I would say apple, as it can be really good for editing things if you made videos, much harder to get viruses, i don't even think you get them anyway. and its a got a really good processor. but then its a lot of money.

  10. My pavilion was only £200 and it done the job - until I get cocky and managed to break the damn CPU and GPU by playing too many graphically intensive games ;-;

    Editing videos = Go download Sony Vegas or something.
    Viruses = Get an anti-virus plus don't be an idiot. Also, yes you can get viruses on Macs. You can get alot.
    Processor = Nup, Apple's processors aren't good at all :/

    Kay, soo...
    I'm currently saving up for a new computer, which is £219. The GPU and RAM are pretty good (I think anyway :p), but the processor is pretty meh. You could go buy a new one though, which is what i'm going to do once I have the keyboard and monitor :p
    Dunno if its available elsewhere in the European Union, but have a look - and if its not, just look for something similar;
