For £363 I managed this spec:

E4500, 3GB RAM, 1.5TB hard drive (2x750), Vista Business.
#2
Thanks for this - I had just ordered a similar insipron 530 for £289 but this for £5 more gives me 680MB more disk space!

(ordered the 8800gt from overclockers also as this will make it a nice gaming system for my brother for £446!)

better watch your power supply.

nice deal
adding some upgrades at good prices makes this hot in my book :thumbsup:

Bargain Brains I was just about to list this but thought I better check nobody else had first, beat me to it ;-)

Its a new ecode so dont be suprised if it gets pulled as incorrect pricing, buy sooner rather than later.

better watch your power supply.

Its 300 watts so will be fine especially if matched with an E4500. My E4500 system consumes about 75W DC at full load and the 8800 GT requites about 100W.
You will likely need to get an adapter to provide the 6 pin PCIe power connector as I don’t think this will come with one.

I just got an email from Dell listing this ecode so its a real deal and not likely to get pulled after all, good old dell!

No chance man, you cant power a 8800 gt on a 300 watt power supply, your pc will mess it. I doubt the power cupply comes with a pci express plug. this is not a gaming machine. i had the same problem my dell 305 watts and a x1950 pro, no chance of it working. gook luck man, it prob wont fit either.

It depends on the quality of the power supply rather than just the wattage.
If you look at the review at Techreport it shows a Core 2 Duo 2.67GHz system with an 8800GT consuming ~220W AC which equates to roughly 180W DC. You’d have to have an exceptionally poor 300W power supply that can’t output 180W DC.
#10
Will Dell ship anything with Windows Home Server? I've searched and not found it on their site.
suspended#11
the 8800GT uses 190W o load so dont expect it to work stable. I think this is a good price for a dell, although my bought a similar pc from hp for £150 (£50 cash back) from pcwb.com, amd 4000x2 i think , 2gb ddr2 667mhz, radeon x1100 intergrated, good for business.

Remember, dont open the case unless you want your warranty void. With dells and any other OEM company i wouldnt advise it as alot of it is DOA(dead on arrival) or will die in a few months.

Voted hot.
#12
Just ordered one of these for use as a server, nice one! Heat and rep added!

You can't do it unless you want your system to run unstable. http://uk.gamespot.com/pages/forums/show_msgs.php?topic_id=26205168

I wouldnt dare stick a 8800gt near a 350 watt power supply. And sont ask dell, they recommended one guy to run a 8800 gtx on a 350 watt power supply. Dell don't care!
#14
If you upgrade the processor to the E6550, and the HDD to 1.5Tb and total cost is £357.20 coz you get the £30 off and free delivery.... I guess it'd work with whatever upgrades you choose to push the price over £300. So in effect you get £100 worth of upgrades for £60
#15
You can also add the [FONT=arial][SIZE=1]Logitech™ Cordless Desktop™ EX110 [/SIZE][/FONT]for £5 despite it saying £10
#16
Ok, so I got the following:
Original processor
Upgraded HDD to 1.5Tb
Added 19 in 1 card reader
Added the Logitech EX110

Total cost: £327.83
#17
Title Should Be Changed. It's Not A 1tb Hard Drive, But Two 500gb's
#18
That's a puny PSU for the CPU and hard drives alone ... let alone a moster graphics card!

I think Dell machines are perect as off-the-shelf-never-wanna-modify systems (i.e. for parents! or servers) but nor for the gaming-techie-modders!
#19
Its a good deal, just not for people who wana play games.

This system will consume around 85W DC with a full load on the CPU so there’s plenty of headroom for a 100W VGA card.

It’s very common for people to mistakenly believe that you need a much more powerful power supply than you actually require. One reason is that people don’t differentiate between AC and DC power. Power Supplies are rated for DC output whereas reviews of PCs quote AC input. A system that draws 300W AC from the wall is typically outputting 240W DC so a good quality 300W power supply can handle that provided it has a 20A 12V rail.

I over-clocked my Q6600 system to 3GHz and with all 4 cores fully loaded the whole system consumed ~130W DC.
#21
Went for 1.5 TB of hard drive space.. should take a couple of weeks to fill ;)

And the 3 gigZ of ram. Looking to use it as a server so didnt bother with any other graphics or stuff, came to £327 delvered + should get around £14 quidco money back. HOT HOT HOT!

You must be worried by now mate..surely Dell will upgrade the power supply and not deliver a machine destined to fail? (as it will I agree). Give them a call to confirm!
#23
dell pcs cant overclock. unless you hack/flash the bios, The best idea is to change the psu to a nice corsair psu for £50 then you can put a 8800 gtx and you don't have to worry.

They only give you the option to run a 2600xt, why? as it doesnt need an extra pci e power, as it doesnt require as much power.
#24
Looks a good deal.

Can't believe the upgrade price for the Q6600 processor - £355 extra!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you are daft enough to order the Q6600 (at £355 extra) then they are clever enough to sell you one.

Please enlighten me to any possible disadvantage buying from the Small Business end as opposed to Home?

Next day on-site service rather than collect and return is probably the main difference.....
#27
Just paid £363 chose the 6550 CPU (2.33 @ 1333 FSB) 1.5TB (2x750GB) & the Logitech wireless set, already have a Dell outlet PC, priced up @ ebuyer and the HDD, RAM, CPU, KB & Vista cane to £430, without case, MB, PSU & DVDRW, a bargain!
#28
I am probably going to regret asking this but what are those ordering 1.5Tb actually going to use it all for? :thinking:

Chris
#29
2x HD's would use around 30w very max, an optical drive another 20w max, 80w on the processor gives 130w - a 305watt psu would be fine with any graphics card that uses upto 160watt.

Thats ignoring the fact that dell PSU's are generally underrated and a 305 will be of similar quality to most 350w supplies.

Most people overestimate how much power they need.
#30
I've been looking for ages, and always get swayed at the last min, MikeT posts so many good deals but im not that 'techie' minded so I have no idea if its any good. Its the processor I have no idea about.

I want something to store all my music, videos, pictures
Go online
Sync My ipod
Play silly games like the Sims
Some quick work in paintshop pro

1 TB hard drive is more than enough
I was going to upgrade the ram to 3

No idea about processors, what i'll need. Is this the best machine for my needs or is one of teh others posted today better. Any help appreciated :thumbsup:
#31
im intrested in ths for my dad he wont ever use 1.5tb so i have offered to buy one of them from hime as i could do with some more storage, will it be possible to just take it out without it messing up his os? or will i need to rewrite the os after?
Do dell store some of the os files for backup on the other drive is it raid or somthing , forgive me im not well up on it all.
thanks

I think you hit the nail on the head. :thumbsup:

Dell have great deals, but their low-end machines are unlikely to appeal to the "gaming-techie-modders" crowd as you call it. If you need Quad-Core, an 8800GT and uber-fast disk, self build is going to ultimately prove a better fit for your needs, I imagine.

Off topic for the thread, but as an owner of a DELL XPS 710 I would have to completely disagree with that statement.

Plenty of space for upgrades (6 hard disks, etc) and a MONSTER gaming PC. :p

£700 (delivered) off Dell Outlet :santa:
#34
Dell Outlet is great for deals, bought mine from there aswell
#35
Voted hot! For those doing quidco the e-value code is UKBSDONL-D024016 and from the quidco link you need to go back to the main page, then into small business, then shop by e-value code.
#36
ignore
#37
be nice if anyone could advise me? is it possible to take out one of the hard drives without messing the os up. if not what will have to be altered to get it to run on a single drive?
#38
Add the ex110 wireless keyboard, upgrade to 3gb ram and add the 5000 webcam and its only £1 more at £295 delivered :)

Never heard so much bull. I have never had a Dell DOA and only 1 failure (quickly sorted under warranty) from around 20 PC's.
