Not really it is like asking can a Ford Focus get to 0-60 in 2 seconds. :p It is a great budget car, but can't handle the most power consuming and harder tasks, but gets from A to B fine, maybe if you add a HD 4870 from Ebuyer which is £90 @ Ebuyer, you can consider playing games, at high resolutions and good frame rates, and extra Ram won't go a far miss...

Sorry for a stupid question.
But could anyone explain to me hat how Athlon 5050e dual core compares with say Pentium dual core or core 2 dual processor.
Some-one told me that Athlon models get heated quickly? Is that true?
How does it compare with the value deal on E buyer

Costs around £283, and I have not factored in a new case and Power Supply which would easily cost £15-£20, and you are paying for ebuyer to put it together for ya, good price considering IMO...

Which for the average user would gain them almost nothing.

Very few users would use more than 2Gb of memory.

And 32 bit Windows dos not use much above 3Gb anyway.

altho, it doesn state its 32 bit vista it probably is 32 bit. vista eats ram, you can use the extra ram for burning dvd, plus ddr2 ram is ridiculously cheap nowadays. i suppose light users , that only use it for web browsing wont mind 2gb but the heavy pc users might want more.
i know your prices are rough estimates but just to be more accuate
Money_Saver

Motherboard - £20


thats bit too low for a motherboard, i reckon £35 maybe £30 cheapest. and a dvd drive is about £15, £20 is pricy me thinks. End of they day it probably is cheaper than building it yourself or equivalent to the cost of building. the go to deal does not work. correct link http://www.ebuyer.com/product/167158

SFF - Small Form Factor

you not going to get a decent GFX card in this I doubt., check out the size of the grille on the side

I would never buy an Acer SFF, if those that remember the L100 disaster, it got do hit it physically caused burns it you touched it.

The 5050e is an energy efficient version of the Athon X2, so is actually less likely to overheat and hence preferred in smaller cases. It compares with the mid-range Pentium Dual Core processors.

Anyone know about the Acer LCD included? I think it's VGA only , am I right?

No, I have the X3200, assume it uses the same 8200 nvidia integrated graphics chipset which is fine for playing older games such as Battlefield 2 and Half-Life 2 on medium settings but would struggle to play the latest games on even the lowest settings. The non-standard sized 220 watt power supply limits any graphics card upgrade options. Nice multimedia system though. :thumbsup:
#15
Nice system for the money, the only thing putting me off is the SFF and tricky upgrading of the graphics card, but still a good deal :thumbsup:

I assume that ebuyer aren't part of the scheme to upgrade the supplied Vista to Windows 7 when it's released?

As I don't need (or want) a new monitor, I'm wondering if I might be better off going for an Acer X3810, which has a bit more 'clout' (processor, memory and a bigger HDD)

Links:

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/167441

or this one (better still?), although it's out of stock atm:

http://www.laskys.com/computing/pcs_and_monitors/pcs/acer_x3810_3gb.html#specification

I really want a SFF machine, and am struggling to find anything as good as these for the price, unless anyone knows better...

The first Acer one you listed has an excellent processor but then it does not have a very big hard disk and I don't really get why machines seem to be coming with 3GB of ram these days.

So it depends what you want to do with it really.

If going for the Win7 upgrade disc mind it'll be £12 http://www.acer.com/windows7upgrade/

This is an older 65nm Athlon X2 so performance is low compared to a Pentium Dual-core and even though it’s a low power version it’ll still consume more power than a current 45nm Pentium dual-core. It’s an adequate CPU.

Followed the link then 'Eligible Models' and this machine is eligible for a Windows 7 upgrade when it is released. Cost is £12.78. Thanks Fujioka.

Just ordered mine so thanks Money Saver !

Would this be any good for using Dragon 10 voice recognition software or are there better systems? Dragon has made my present computer grind to a halt.

From a search:
The recommended specifications for Dragon are the same by recommending 2.4 GHz processor speed, (1.6 GHz processor speed for dual core PC’s), and 1 GB RAM memory size. NaturallySpeaking 10 also requires the same amount of hard disk space to run the program, (1 GB free hard drive space).
For the first time, Dragon is listing the needed L2 Cache size for NaturallySpeaking. They have set the L2 Cache side needed at 512 kb. Dragon recommends a size of 1 MB L2 Cache.

This PC Spec is Clock Speed: 2.6 GHz (Dual Speed Processor).
Cache Memory Installed Size: L2 Cache - 1 MB ( 2 x 512 KB ).
RAM: 2Gb

So from that I would say it is well within spec for Dragon 10.

Afternoon Chaps/chapesses,

Thanks

Was going to ask a similar question to above. Has anyone got details of the motherboard used in this and does it have a PATA connection as well as SATA, if so how many?

Unlikely to have the space or a bay to fit an internal hard drive.

If you visit Acer & click on Products > Consumer PCs & the Aspire X3200 (similar-sized case) link & finally the Technical specs tab, you'll see that it has the following:
1 SATAII HDD 3.5" bay
1 x 5.25" drive bay

One could always get an external USB enclosure for your extra hard drive though: http://www.ebuyer.com/search?sort=pricelow&q=enclosure&limit=10&page=1

No, I was thinking about transfering data from an existing PATA drive on to the supplied SATA drive. Will use a PATA to USB adapter lead otherwise.

Monitor Not Included
are you sure 19" monitor included??
#32
I was tempted by this but the screen resolution is relatively low even for a standard 19in screen, so I'll be giving it a miss, but a great price none the less.
#33
Not sure whether site has changed but Monitor IS NOT included.

Please update your post

I assume it's because it is misleading as it doesn't have a monitor (X193HQ 19" TFT) as title says.
#37
As the X1300 is no longer the deal it at first appeared, this one is definitely warmer now:

Not bad - but more expensive at £400 (I had also seen this one previously.)

I am tempted by the x3810 from ebuyer, and think I'll be able to get by with a 320Gb HDD
