ok, I've been tinkering around on the Aria website, and have this as my new pc spec:

Arianet Concerto Piano Black Micro ATX Case 0 £ 18.60
Gigabyte GA-73PVM-S2H, GeForce 7100, Socket 775, MCP-630i £ 38.37
Kingston 2GB PC2-6400 HyperX (2x1GB) £ 27.95
LITEON DH-20A4P 20x DVDRW - Black £ 12.65
Microsoft Windows XP Home OEM SP2 £ 49.89
500GB Seagate Barracuda SATA2 32MB ST3500320AS 7200RPM £ 37.95
Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 2.53GHz (Retail 775) £ 77.95

Am I missing anything? Comes to about £320 all in, I've gone for a Core2Duo processor, a bigger hard drive.

Am I likely to need cables and stuff? Or will it come with it?

oh, K saw the iMac at PC World for the first time yesterday, and even she thought it was lovely and shiny. But twice the cost of the above, at *least*.

as you may have guessed from the photos, we didn't make it to the party this weekend. Neither of us was feeling particularly well, and the thought of a huge drive there and back just didn't do it for us.

So, we meandered around looking at new dishwashers and washing machines and GIANT TVs whilst K's parents took the Beans to Cannon Hall Farm for the afternoon (where they'd have been going anyway, had they been on beansitting duty).

Had a nice chinese meal last night, watched Fringe (v.v.bonkers, but fun) and chilled out.

Got the day booked off tomorrow as we'd have been knackered driving back today, but we're going to head off to IKEA to look at desks and stuff. *without* the kids. Wooo! meatballs for lunch.

Oh, and it's our wedding anniversary today, something both of us forgot!
