No Captain, they're alive. I want that ship.
Oh, you can get some good stuff PC wise for £300 (or even £299.99....)
Without having a real good look at your system specs (i.e even better than your sig) it would be hard to say where you might most benefit from that money being spent, but I am more than willing to believe that you could get a nice new processor and motherboard for that.
Or its, a CD-RW drive, DVD Drive, Hollywood plus card, new sound card, more memory etc....
That's a serious shopping, that. I wish I had 300 notes to spend on my machine. I think I might like that nice DVD writer that I've had my eye on and has been falling in price.
I am of course biast here in the sense that I spend a lot of my money on my machines, and would never dream of buying some games console.
But doubtlessly, someone who had an X-Box will come on here and tell you all about it in drool detail.
Methinks 300 notes is too much for something that just plays games and surfs the net, even if that's all I do with my PC most of the time. I mean, a PC can do ALL SORTS OF THINGS.
This is quite an interesting example of opportunity cost, one of the most basic prinipals of micro economics. If you buy the X Box at £299, its opportunity cost is the next most desireable alternative of your chosen £299 worth of PC upgrades.
Choose well. Even for us folks with jobs, £299 is a fair amount of money. I could do on a nice little holiday for that, or even get a very crappy car.
