Hi, I was wondering if anyone can give me some advice on a new Dell PC I have my eye on. I've been looking on the business site and have my eye on this Vostro 410.
PROCESSOR Intel® Core2 Quad Q9300 Processor (2.50GHz, 1333MHz, 6MB cache)
OS Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1, 32-bit - English
MEMORY 3072MB 800MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM [2x1024 + 2x512]
HARD DRIVE 500GB (7200rpm) Serial ATA Hard Drive with 16MB DataBurst cache
GRAPHICS CARD 512MB nVidia® GeForce® 8800GT graphics card
OPTICAL DRIVE 16x DVD+/-RW & 16x DVD Drives
KEYBOARD Logitech EX110 Cordless Keyboard and Mouse
What I'd like to know is how much difference there is between that processor and this one:
Intel® Core2 Quad Q6600 Processor (2.40GHz, 1066MHz, 8MB cache)
obviously the latter one is much cheaper.
I want this pc for every day usage, but I will be playing games on it too, bioshock, FEAR, sims 2 etc, would the pc I have selected be ok for these?
the last thing is, if there is a big difference between those two processors and I would be better going for the more expensive one, is there any way to get a similar spec for cheaper? I only really wanted to spend about £400, this system works out at £511, not sure if thats a hot deal for what im getting. Are there any vouchers about I could use?
sorry for the simpleton questions, any help and advice is appreciated.
