Interesting. What scope would this offer towards installing a funky graphic card in a couple of months?
I see it has a 450W PSU but relatively clueless in terms of card size restrictions etc.

Was considering a new laptop at some point but I've dangerously turned into an upgrade fanatic so might go the desktop route :)

The total of those parts comes to £329.43 - so saving £21.34 over the normal price.

I would imagine that if you were capable of putting the parts together then you may already have some of those parts - or would prefer to put in your own specification.... as that's the beauty of building your own.

You would probably get an operating system with a prebuilt system too - though I realise you could use Linux or the like for free.

I bought one of these "package" deals from Scan a few months ago that had a CIT case and a mini-ATX motherboard.

The case was terrible, very flimsy and cheap (it was not the exact same case). I nearly went out and bought another one, but in the end stuck with it and used it.

The mini-ATX motherboard was REALLY small. It was an Asus and was about 8 inches by 6 inches. Barely room to fit everything on it.

If you are looking to add a decent graphics card at a later date then go for a full size ATX case, and a full size ATX motherboard. Then whatever graphics card you buy it wil fit (on some small motherboards the heat sink and fan for the CPU takes up so much roon you cant fit a decent graphics card on to it).

At the same time you can buy a decent say 600w PSU as well.

No point in buying this package deal from Scan, then finding the graphics card does not fit in the case, or the PSU is not powerful enough to run the graphics card.

Most companies like Scan, ebuyer, dabs can sell you a similar set of components (and you can choose your own) so no need to go for this particular package.

If you're not sure exactly what you're getting, spend the extra on a Dell.
If you are sure what you're getting, then you'll know that the PSU probably isn't worth the risk.

Just gets scary when I start pricing these things up. I'd quite like an i5 750 chipset and an ATI 5850 card, but once I start factoring in a case, motherboard, PSU etc. i'm getting into some serious spending. Plus i'll need a monitor at the end of it all :oops:
