Now that's cheap!!

Thanks Mike

So many goodies and I don't need one :) Thanks Mike ;-)

[SIZE=2]Is there anyway i can find out what motherboard this is?[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]As im really intrested but if i just for the dual core can i update it at a later date to dual core 2?[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]I presume it has PCI Express also?[/SIZE]
[mod]#4
E520 Expansion Slots
PCI: 2 Slots
PCIe x1: 1 Slot
PCIe x16 (Graphics): 1 Slots

As to the motherboard I really dont know and doubt there is an easy way to find out. It will be a dell own design and may be it will take another cpu but I would buy what you need now and not try to upgrade its cpu later.
#5
Thanks for that mike , do you know how long these offers last for? do you think this offer will still be on till late next week? or is it a one day only offer?

I may just ask my parents to get it me for Xmas with the Dual core 2 added

Also i read something on the internet about Concore being the best would it be this? getting confused about all the different types out there.
[mod]#6
This price and spec should last till next Wednesday evening, with new offers every Thursday morning.

Intel® Core 2 Duo E6300 Processor is in the conroe family which I guess is what you mean by concore, the next big step will be to Kentsfield cpu's which will be like two conroe's sandwiched together, so 4 cpu's all working independent (gulp!) as long as the software is written to take advantage. This is likely to cost around 8x what the present core 2 duo costs atm and due next year.

I hope I got that all correct, there are over 160 different cpus available now!
#7
Fantastic price - throw in a £70 PCI graphics card and you've got a fabulous Xmas present for someone.
[mod]#8
Personally I would fit a PCIe graphics card as it has a dedicated slot
#9
can you please tell me how to find this on quidco, when i put the code in it says nothing found. thanks
#10
hey mike
hmm i am really tempted on this offer with the core 2 duo added to make the total price around 430 but do you think i should wait a few weeks until christmas to see if the price goes even better or am i taking a risk and the price will go up? :thinking:
btw how long do dell take roughly to deliver???

Here's the Dell link for QuidCo but you must be logged into your QuidCo account: http://quidco.com/dell/

Once on Dell's website use their eValue Code search box and these 307 [first box] D11E02 [second box].

Remember to select 90 day collect and return or one year collect and return [whichever is the lowest price option for this deal].

Mike had the same question in one of the other Dell posts and suggests it's best to go for what's available now, as these are very good prices at the moment. Dell update every Thursday morning and sometimes there'll maybe be one bargain or a few, but sometimes there are none. It's all "take a chance" there will always be something better to go for at some stage, because of the expected better technology coming along, or the free postage/accessories/printers on offer.

thanks Rayman.

Hi all
I want to buy this for my 11 year daughter. She will use it for homework and games mainly online. Should I just buy the basic package for should I upgrade on some things. Some advice would be helpful as I tried to buy it but got confused. I would like to buy her a system that will last at least a couple of years any advice would be welcome.
#16
Welcome to HotUKDeals notalkdi and Thanks for the post :)

The basic system should be ideal for the use you state above and would last her the two years. If you wanted to upgrade to a DVD Writer, it would be cheaper to do it at a later date. Also to add more memory in the future the same.

DVDRW drives are around £25 and memory depends on how much you want to add, but Dell's prices for these are much higher.
#17
[SIZE=2]For myself :thinking: Yes I probably would :)[/SIZE]
#18
thanks ray :thumbsup:
would u take this deal up for 430? with core 2 duo added?
#19
Hmm... My post jumped above yours again. For myself, yes I would take the core 2 duo :)

You could add dells starter graphics card 256MB nVidia® GeForce® 7300 Turbocache graphics card (add £47.00) and still keep the cost below £400. Its not the best by any means but it will be better than the on board graphics it comes with, especially if your not too comfortable fitting your own and updating the drivers etc. Then later as Ray suggests get another 2 x 512meg strips of ram from Crucial using coupons to reduce the cost. The basic graphics card borrows ram from the system so your original 512meg will get some used for the graphics with this card.
Again I am with Ray, there are 2 slots for opticals so buy with the combo drive it has and later add another dvdrw drive if she feels she needs to burn dvd's, if she doesnt then the combo it comes with will be fine.
#22

Sorry - I meant PCIe graphics card! You can pick up 7600GTs real cheap and 6600GTs are almost giveaway and still pretty good cards.

For basic kiddie use including homework etc. this machine is more than adequate. The 7300 graphics card option is a little basic but will be fine unless your daughter intends to play serious 3D games in which case I would put in a higher spec card, and upgrade memory to about 1GB.
If all she is playing are games like those on addictinggames.com then you won't even need a separate graphics card.
#23
Thanks for all the replies I'm going to order it now. One last question before I do is it worth upgrading the system with the better processer and adding on the free upgrade to vista?
#24
If I were buying the system for myself, yes I would upgrade to the core 2 duo and the free upgrade you don't lose anything if you don't use it.
#25
Hold on, the Vista upgrade has a delivery cost of $45

My guess is that the cost will be small or nothing by the time it comes round to being available and it costs nowt to ask for the coupon, make your mind up later type deal ;-)

Like the way the discount details link takes you somewhere else Ray :giggle:
#29
Hehe copy and paste and it's a java link :roll:
#30
any dell coupon codes ? :roll:
#31
sorry me again
forgot to ask one other thing. Will i be okay setting this up to my wireles network and if I do upgrade would it be best to go with the other offer mentioned.
Thanks
#32
Sorry no coupons chooi :|

Yeah should be fine with your wireless network notakdi :)
#33
The upgrade for the first system would be good I think :)

The basic graphics card borrows ram from the system so your original 512meg will get some used for the graphics with this card.


So is the 256MB graphics card not actually 256mb on the card dedicated?!?!

Been lurking for a while now watching the Dell offers. This seems a great buy as I am after a new computer for my Daughter she just needs the basics and this seems more than adequate, anyway have placed an order for one and are now waiting for my order number. Also placed an order for the two 725 printers the other day which was another great find. Thanks Mike T
#36
The original system is on-board graphics:
Integrated Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3000


A dedicated card would use its own on-board memory.

Thanks rayman for the welcome and the reply!!!

Been around here for a while using the site but not used the forums until recently!!!

Great site by the way, i've added it to Sage so every time a new offer comes up I can be the first there....

From Dell specs: For the cards that support HyperMemory or TurboCache, some portion of the video memory is stored in system RAM and the rest is stored locally in the video card’s memory.


Typically up to 50% of stated graphics memory will be borrowed as needed from system memory.

Thanks and you're welcome :) It's good that more people are using the forums now, rather then skipping over the front page ;-)
