Any modern PC will do what you need :) Intel i5 10th / 11th generation with built in graphics or AMD Ryzen with a basic graphics card, 16GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD will probably be sufficient.

 

... go with Dell or HP

 

... PBTech sell a range of machines

 

 

 

 

Totally agree. My last couple of computers - Desktop & Laptop - were HP machines purchased from PB Tech.

 

And I'm about to buy a new windows desktop machine. It'll be a newish i7 or i9 generation chip with 24+ GB RAM and a 256+ GB SSD drive. I've re-use my existing monitors, keyboard, mouse, etc unless see a package that includes them for a reasonable price.

Batman: Cos it sounds like he's asking for the best /fastest experience. .

" so i'm not after a really fast PC. just faster than what ive got already."

I wouldn't wait. Real world inter-generation performance barely changes between generations of processors these days. Theoretical peak performance in benchmarks, sure, but that doesn't help normal people much.
