Hi Guys,

My Dad is looking for a new PC, he has a decent monitor so that isn't really essential. Any opinions on this one:


Any alternatives?

Thanks, rep for any advice

* Intel® Core™2 Quad processor Q8300
* Intel® G41 express chipset

alright cpu but intel have moved on to i5 and i7 etc, so theres not much scope for upgrading


* 4 GB DDR3
* 2 DIMM sockets

probably 2x 2gb installed in only 2 slots - so again upgrading is a pain.

Hard Drive

* 1 TB SATA 3G (5400 rpm)

probably fine but doesn't say cache size and faster hd's are 7200rpm

also no wireless adaptor

its an alright pc, but personally i would wait for another hot dell deal like the vostro, it was an i7 processor, not great but better graphics and i think it had 4 slots for memory at around the same price.

i'm sure some people will disagree....
Hi, if he will not be doing any gaming or there is any need for a graphics card then I would take a look at the one below: has 4gb RAM, 7200rpm HDD.

"Primo Drone" AMD Athlon II X2 Dual Core 245 2.90GHz DDR2 System £248.99

Thanks for your advice guys.

He wont be using it for gaming, and the router is right next to his computer so the wireless is also not an issue.

Think I will wait a bit longer.

rep for your both
Tried leaving rep, but don't think you can do it in the old way...I "liked" both of your comments though, and I guess thats the same
