#2
welcome to HUKD MkS2007 :thumbsup:

Operating System None

That's a bit of a drawback though...
#4
you can get vista for about £50 so its still a cheap PC and the spec is pretty darn good :thumbsup:
#5

You could try one of the many free Linux distro's out there? :geek:

Currently Sold Out - Which is a shame as this is an excellent price.

(Its AM2 socket)

We are expecting more CPU stock on Tuesday so we can continue to build these systems. If you are interested in one there is a function on our website called "Tell me when back in stock" feature just add you email address and it will automatically send you a back in stock email.
Here is the link: http://www.bigpockets.co.uk/product.php?lang=&product_id=22260&product=CA-0005

Bit of history for you in the 90's we use to build a 1000 pc's a week under the name Tambra. Maybe You remember them from high street shops.

Thanks for the info Simon.

We also have a 3600+ version in stock @ £259.99 + P&P Click Here

Hi.....what wattage is the PSU of this PC?....Thanks:)
#14
Decent spec. PC, amazing what you can get for your money these days. Would be a shame to put anything less than Premium on it. Might be worth checking Novatech for comparison If you are after an upgrade system.

We don't include an OS as there is so much choice now, some users still use 2000, others XP, maybe media centre and now Vista is growing by the day. Free operating systems are also growing strongly and for good reason.

We do offer a Vista Home Premium upgrade for £72.99 (which also includes the full install being done, drivers we supply the discs and COA licence)

400W

Oli :thumbsup:
So the 4600+ and the 3600+ both have a 400w PSU?

Thanks??:) :thumbsup:

Yes they do.

To a large degree a motherboard is a motherboard (simialr ballpark spec. etc). The drain on the PSU comes from the extras you add on because you have a "fast" PC... graphics, multiple drives, 2 DVDs

Very true, hard drives and graphics cards tend to be the worse for draining power.

mks2007,

as this is the OEM version you would have to buy this along with a part for your system, i.e. with a piece of hardware such as a hard disk, motherboard, cpu etc. Or you can buy a peripheral such as a keyboard or mouse?

PLEASE NOTE : The OEM agreement for Microsoft OEM SOFTWARE DISTRIBUTION.

If the individual software license is a desktop operating system (including Windows XP Media Center Edition), we grant you a nonexclusive right to distribute individual software licenses; provided that each one is distributed with either (a) a fully assembled computer system or (b) a nonperipheral computer hardware component.

A “fully assembled computer system” means a computer system consisting of at least a central processing unit, a motherboard, a hard drive, a power supply, and a case.
A “nonperipheral computer hardware component” means a component that will be an integral part of the fully assembled computer system on which the individual software license will be installed.

http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=527300 - Vista Premium 64bit £76.65 delivered, or if you took advantage of their recent offer on here and signed up for free delivery then £69.92, but you must buy a qualifying piece of hardware at the same time.

In which case it is cheaper to pay the company £72.99 for this, however the only drawback is that you don't get the software disk.

Don't mean to sound like a thicko!!!:? ...if i bought this PC and the Vista disc...
Total £373..or there about's....
and BPs installed the disc...

i would not get the disk sent to me with the Pc after installation??

Would i be able to install Microsoft updates??:?

You get the discs and the licence so you won't have any problems at all. It's all installed and the updates will work fine.

Oli,

thanks for that, most system builders only give customers a recovery disk, rather than the actual OS disk, so it's nice to see someone that actually does it properly IMHO, thanks.

Kezzie,

sorry, this is not an issue as you would have a licensed copy of the operating system. Most manufacturers build their systems from another computer and licence them in bulk, therefore you usually get a recovery disk, rather than a disk with the Vista or XP operating system on it. This is fully legal and does not give any issues with MS updates.
All it usually means is that if you need to extract a specific file from the OS disk then you cannot get it. However Oli has confirmed that bigpockets do give you the OS disk so that is good news.

No problem

#28
Hi Oli...what motherboard do you use in these machines??..Thanks (again):)
#29
Having had 3 disk crashes in as many years I would make sure I had a disk from which to install (especially as Vista is not rock solid at the moment) along with decent backups of course.

Hi Oli...what motherboard do you use in these machines??..Thanks (again):)


They use an ASROCK AM2NF6G-VSTA which for the price we found to be the quickest and it also has onboard graphics, 8 channel sound, SATA RAID, Networking & Vista support which made it a great starting point

Oli :thumbsup:
#31
Looks like a super machine for that price and getting the OS disc aswell is a bonus...

I take it the graphics can be upgraded to a standalone card..:thumbsup:
#32
crazylegs, yeah, it's got a PCIe x16 slot. You could put in the cheap £70 7600 card and get about 10x the graphical performance.

http://www.asrock.com/product/AM2NF6G-VSTA.htm

Asrock are pretty good, they're the budget range of Asus. I've got an Asrock motherboard somewhere in the house. Shame it only has two SATA connectors. You can't really game on the built-in graphics (well, maybe 2004-era games, but not 2006) but Vista will run fine. It's better than the Intel integrated graphics, even the new G965 in the X3000 chipset (see http://www.techreport.com/onearticle.x/12195)

For the price it's hard to beat. You could probably build a similar system for about the same price or a little more, but it would take time, although be closer to your own desired specifications and taste in cases.

And there's the rub. For the vast majority of people this is a good deal. If you want something a bit special and are capable of putting it together once you've checked everything works together etc then go for it. If you're one of the 85%+ that only browse, load word, look at the odd photo and play music but want an upgraded system that will run Vista then....

This has the potential to be a great little gaming machine!:thumbsup:

In benchmark tests i have seen...
the AMD X2 4600+..
is the equal if not better than the Intel E6300!..:thumbsup:

Eg.....4600+ beats the E6300 in a lot of these tests...
