Don't forget you'll need an operating system......Microsoft vista home basic or xp home can add another £50+ or you could go for a Linux based OS for free like ubuntu http://www.ubuntu.com/
#5
I can't find this retailer on quidco. Are my eyes deceiving me?
#6
Yeah my bad, Quidco is not available, I got mixed up with Savapoint. I still got 5% off though, not sure why.

I've been looking for a cheap basic machine (no keyboard, mouse or monitor) to install Windows Home Server on - this might fit the bill... wonder if it takes SATA hard drives though...

edit: yes it does apparently, 2xSATA. Ooh... now I'mwishing the box wasn't so ugly...

How much is postage?

just got this email through

good deal if you want to upgrade without the hassle of building it

"Assembly instructions not included. " Very helpful!

hey guys im wondering if this is actually just the parts they supply, i checked a few other systems on website and they are described as being
"Aries Prebuilt PC",strange term its either built or it isnt, i have a horrible feeling if you order you will receive a box full of parts!
#12
Nice find :) Thanks and the link should work fine now.

Yes, this is a self build PC bundle of components. Its fairly easy to build PCs these days, but it is simply not worth the hastle for the £60 saving over other PCs.

For example, this is a much better deal for £229 (after £30 cash back)

looks good but a lot of confusion over what exact cashback you get on this model,not sure how wise it is to go for a single core these days,mike t posted a deal recently AMD x 3800 dual core base unit £252,may be a better option for some people although i wish dell would offer win xp pro as an option on more pcs
#15
i would recommend anyone looking for a rock bottom price pc to go for the big makers such as dell and hp. reason? the psu. you can expect cheap power supplies to fail within the first year and when a cheap psu dies it usually does so with a bang. in the old days it would take down other components with it and it might have caught fire but these days it's usually just a loud bang and the smell of roasted transistor packaging.

so why go for dell or hp? they make sure they put a suitable psu in a machine based on its requirements. and they also pay the real price for those components, not the inflated price of retail psus with their pretty packaging, big logos, glossy finishes, 5 star reviews and all that **** that inflates the price.

in summary, never skimp on psu if building by yourself (go for ocz, corsair, seasonic, enermax...) or go with the big oem pc builders.

My point is that you can always get cheaper elsewhere :santa: Especially if you can configure it by yourself (e.g. going for a Pentium E2140 or a x2 3600+ and overclocking it on a decent motherboard)

Hmm .. I dunno - I can build a machine in little over 30 minutes these days, providing all the parts are ready and waiting.

Not a bad deal IMO, but boy is that case fugly!

I remember once seeing a PC Chips motherboard with everything INCLUDED onboard (RAM and CPU). This might shave off a few minutes off installation. The most difficult part (from experience) is to get all the casing wires in the right place AND not to slice your fingers open with sharp edges.
#22
The most difficult bit is fitting the cpu cooler. Such a bad design!
#23
is it still artic silver you use in-between cpu + cooler or is there soething better?

I Agree wholeheartedly about not skimping on the PSU when building your own machine.

But just to get a balanced picture.... I deal with DELL machines every day....lots of them.... the number of the budget models that suffer PSU failures within 1 - 2 years is huge. It's the number one failure point followed closely by those with Foxxconn motherboards. Higher up the ranges things improve.

Again I do agree that a quality PSU is vital and don't want to start a flame war on my first post but to expect a large, bulk oem manufacturer to fit high quality components to their budget machines is a little mis-leading.

I've cut myself on every computer I've put together but I like to think its the blood sacrifice the Computer Gods need for a working build... :p

i think this is an ok price for someone on a budget that was dual core processor

There is a Dual Core bundle on there if your just after a MB, RAM & CPU? Any good? Seems to be?

I literally went round to a mates parents house 2 nights ago, as their computer had stopped working. Fuse kept on blowing in the plug every time they turned it on. So naturally went to replace the PSU, opened it all up, unplugged it all, went to plug in the replacement, and realised that those b*astards dell have made their own special ATX style connectors that only work with their PSU's. So to replace it now would require sending it back to dell rather than just dropping a new standard PSU in there - 5 min job.

So bought them a new computer
1 x Casecom KB-7760 Black ATX Midi Tower Case - No PSU, No Case Fans Included
1 x Extra Value Gold 400W 12cm Fan Silent PSU
1 x AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ (2.1GHz) Socket AM2 Energy Efficient L2 1MB (2x512KB) Cache OEM Processor
1 x MSI K9N6SGM-V GeForce 6100 Socket AM2 onboard VGA and 8-channel audio mATX
2 x Kingston 1GB DDR2 667MHz / PC2-5300 MEMORY CL5 1.8V NON ECC UNBUFFERED
1 x Arctic Cooling Freezer-64-LP Dual Cooling Low Profile Processor Cooler for AMD 939 and AM2 Processors
1 x Western Digital WD1600JS Caviar SE 160GB 7200RPM SATAII/300 8MB Cache - OEM

Comes in at £175 delivered. Missing a DVD writer though. But more memory and bigger hard drive than the deal posted.
#29
I wish I'd actually read the thread before going off and pricing up how much I think the box is actually worth (about £150) and what you can get for the same price. Btw, the Mboard is made by Ecs, an utterly unknown brand and you could get much better for a few quid more, I'd steer clear of this one, the only decent component is the processor.

Really? I've been building pc's for around 12 years and I've never heard of them, Gigbyte, Abit, Asus, MicroStar, MSI and even PC Chips who now seem to have disappeared into oblivion, heard of them all but not ECS, wouldn't touch 'em with a barge pole personally.

yep. The first time I used one of their boards was the k7s5a, a very good budget board, only lacking in overclocking options, but it was such a widely used and regarded board that hacked BIOS were soon available. remember the Athlon Thunderbirds? 2001 I think. I'd lump them in the same catagory as MSI (AKA microstar), maybe even a bit more reliable.
#34
ECS are like PC Chips and behind ASRock in terms of "Quality".

This isn't bad, but you can build a PC in under an hour...
#35
ECS support is miles ahead of PC chips

PC Chips had support? I thought it was solely a website based in Taiwan serving a worldwide audience that fell over every half an hour because their were too many people on it?
I gave up on PC Chips as the boards broke after the first 12 months, I've not used MSI because they seem to have about the same build quality, never had any problems with ASUS, Abit and Gigabyte though, although I did once have a problem with fitting a Tbird fan onto an Asus board due to some capacitors being right next to the chip port, had to bend them out of the way in the end and I had to change Windows port settings to get a soundcard to work on the same board.

won't dell replace your psu if it failed within the first year?

Even if they don't which I'm sure they do..
Surely it would have been cheaper to buy a Dell PSU instead of buying a new machine??
They cost about £40 depending on the model.
