    BradyBrade!
    very good deal.

    For comparison, if you would rather have discrete graphics card instead of integrated , and prefer not to buy Acer, (or buy from a DSG group company!) - this Dell is the £10 from the same price & very similar spec other than slightly less ram, and a bit less HD space as a trade off for the graphics!

    either looks a good option, and so I suppose it confirms each is good for the money that is, IF you need Blu Ray which I must admit I am not being drawn into yet!

    i noticed this acer on pc world store on saturday but they were selling it for £559 with a crab monitor...i asked to buy the tower alone and they wanted £500...how did you get it for £469? your link is not working by the way.
    Also regarding the dell deal...it is less ram, less hard disk drive and also no HDMI port which the acer has
    sam1970
    i found it now for £469 which is great....but what people think about this HP from Morgan computers...i know it is refurbished but it comes with one year warranty...also no blueray but much better graphics

    What is there to think about!

    It is dearer, OK more ram on the graphics, but if it was new I wouldn't touch Morgan (messed me about last time!) and I would need one monster of a discount to be buying second-hand gear! :-(

    Wow! major problems! :?

    For one thing, are you sure?
    It supports TWO monitors, and I am sure it has DVI,... so use an adaptor.
    Ram is SO cheap now, who is at all worried about the amount of RAM in a machine - don't get it from the system builder though - what does it cost now?... about Tuppence a stick these days? :whistling:

    With 3 Gb of RAM AND dedicated graphics, I don't think it is even worth worrying about as not all the "extra" RAM, if you up it to 4Gb will be fully used - I have 4Gb, with an integrated graphics card, my partners machine is only 3Gb, but has dedicated graphics, so I didn't bother upping it to 4Gb, even though it is not a great expense.

    The HD space is nowt nor something either way... 20 quid extra if Dell add it, when you build it, but my attitude is, get it when you need it, you will need a drive for backing up to anyway whatever you buy, so buy a bigger USB drive when you do to make up for the shortfall!

    Whatever machine you buy, wherever you buy it, minor adjustments like these are just of no real consequence, unless you are wanting the moon on a stick!

    This is a cracking spec for the price, good to use for gaming and as a media center.
    adamr999
    Had this pc since december good pc although rather annoying that it comes with 32 bit so you cant use the full 4gb ram
    divy98
    Ain't the 32 bit down to your o/s rather than the actual machine? If you installed a 64bit version of an o/s then you could use full 4gig but then some progs probably wouldn't work due to compatiblity.

    if you want a 64 bit version of vista does the processor have to be a 64 bit....i want to get this pc but need to know if this will have a 64 bit processor?

    If you don't know the answer to that question, can I I suggest that you find out why you need 64 bit Windows anyway?

    didnt someone mention the fact that the 32 version doesnt allow you to use more then 3gb?

    How loud is this one, looks good and temted to go for it but fed up with fans running late at night

    Not a bad deal but a couple of perspectives to take into account.

    Acer (and Packard Bell) normally are built for home office and business use and for gaming you need to make normally two adjustments :

    1) They use motherboard graphics - ok so I can a graphics card but read the next point.
    2) Any decent graphics card requires at least a 420w PSU and these machines are normally around 300w.

    In addition the RAM installed is normally 667 speed as opposed to 800 and the motherboard can in certain instances not support the speed of the components.

    I cannot find the details but worth being aware.

    Of course, but even that is not QUITE fully true, as you will find if you do a bit of searching on the net, or even the pages of this site. It isn't as straightforward as that, you get a good bit more, so only a little of the extra 1Gb of RAM is "wasted"

    If you are not the "techie" enough sort to know know whether or not the processor is 64 bit, which of course it is, then odds-on you won't find 32 bit a problem any more than you will find the 64 bit vitally necessary. Some benchmarks show some things run SLOWER on 64 bit machines, although a good few run better, again neither is a lot different!

    If you are thinking of something like 8Gb of RAM or more, and if your software and drivers for other hardware that you might have are available and up to the job then get it, there is no other way of using that much RAM, but otherwise, why bother?

    I wold go further and question why look at this sort of stuff for gaming at all!.... it is most definitely the only area nowadays that I would be looking to build a machine myself if it was for gaming (not that I do game!) - otherwise you could end up replacing half the components and wasting more money.

    That said, lots of people have used them for gaming, and the PSU on the Dell is OK to a point (it is 360W) with a range of "better" graphics cards, but as I say why would you, it is as daft as buying a 4 wheel drive for use trolling around town shopping - plenty of people waste their time and money on that too!
