Grab this one quickly as I dont know how long it will stay at this price, it was £508 at 6:30am so one of the prices is wrong.

Graphics: Upgrade via dell if you must but better bargains to be had elseware after you purchase the desktop, no problem with voiding the warranty dell expect you to upgrade inside the case.

Well I added the 22" monitor and an extra dvd player to up the pre vat price to over £400 and applied the Quidco deals and it comes to £440 delivered with the cashback. Thats got to be a bargain.

Deal of the week mate!!!! Spot on!!!

What a deal, was considering this for £439 price with the 19" monitor.

Upgraded to the 22" widescreen & also added the 13 in 1 card reader.

Price before VAT and delivery is £412.13, so qualifies for the £25 discount from quidco for speding over 400 before VAT and shipping.

n.b. The shipping is free (60 quid but discounts 60 quid)

So, total price INC VAT & free shipping with the above added is £484.25

Quidco is 4.5% x 412.13 = £18.56 + £25 = £43.56

Final cost after I get Quidco back of 484.25 - 43.56 = £440.69


Looking on Ebay the 22" monitor has been selling for just short of £250 alone!

Windows Vista Premium included in this deal too!

Thanks ever so much, just hope that the deal comes off.

Which processor the Intel® Viiv™ Pentium® D 915 or Intel® Pentium® D 915 both say £0.00

#7

[mod]#8
This deal is still working fine ;-)
#9
Be aware the 22" monitor is currently £247 direct from Dell with 3 year warranty....just in case you were thinking of ebay!

Cracking deal Mike....just need to cancel the one I ordered for a friend last night!!!!!!!
#10
Does this have a PCI-Express slot for upgrading the GFX card?
#11
Yes it does mate.
#12
Thanks Mike. Have gone for one with the 22" and gone through Quidco.
Good to have something more modern to work with. I think getting the monitor really clinched the deal for me..:thumbsup:
#13
I have had a look on the Quidco site and the £25 was only upto 23 Feb has this been extended?

is it worth upgrading the processor to the E6400??? having googled a bit i cant see any abiding benefits but would appreciate any words of wisdom!

great post mike, thanks v. much, poised to order with the processor choice ironed out ;-)
#16
Awesome price, especially with the monitor, I just know there is such much more performance to be had out of them Intel chips if you cud OC these systems which I believe you can't....

How do you find the pre VAT price to check it's above £400?
#17
Go all the way and it gives you the breakdown.

But this is before you need to add CC details.

How long until this tracks in quidco?
#18
Tracks 0-30 days
payment 2 months

I ordered a PC in November and i got paid this week

The 6400 is faster but for you to see the benefit you would need to be a number cruncher or big gamer to be honest. In everyday computing you would not see much benefit to be honest.

The 4300 is a very very powerful chip in itself. If the price is less than £35 to upgrade then it may be worth considering, anything over that then I would say no.

yep, my typo... ;-)

not sure whehter to or not!!!

Go for it, its cheap enough to make a difference when you eventually go to sell it on, your upgrading 2cpu cores so twice the increase in crunching ability as well.

Hi, I am sorely tempted with this system.
I have a couple of questions:
1 - Are dell systems quiet - my current pc (built myself a couple of years ago), sounds like an aeroplane!
2 - What motherboard is in these? I would like to look up the specifications - especially the number of pci slots - also is the pci-express 16x?
3 - I am going to put 2GB of Ram in - I note that Dell charges £94 for this - would I better off "sourcing" the RAM elsewhere and flogging the 2 512mb sticks on fleabay?
4 - Is it worth buying their x1300 ati radeon gfx card, or would I be better off sorting this out separately.
5 - Which courier does Dell use? I have constant issues with Initial Citylink, so am trying to boycott them!
Cheers

1) I have an E520 and for normal use it is extremely quiet. When doing CPU intensive stuff, like munging Video it spins the fan up and you can hear it.

2) DELL specific motherboard. IIRC 2 x PCI, 1 x PCI-E 16, 1 x PCI-E

3) 4 slots, so just add 2 x 512M to get up to 2G

It will be great for gaming but only once you upgrade the graphics card as the one it comes with is complete rubbish
#36
I think it's safe to say that while this is a fine purchase - particularly if you managed to add in the 22-inch screen at the lower price - there are worthwhile Dell deals along pretty much every week now.

Basically, don't fret if you've just paid your mortgage and credit card bill and have to pass this one by... another will be along shortly :)
#37
How many internal hard drives and DVD drive bays available on this machine?

Do dell include a Vista restore/install DVD?

How good is the 22 inch monitor?

Cheers.

Dell Specific Motherboard - how many USB? Firewire? if I only have 2 PCI slots, (one will go with my TV Card and the other will probably go with a RAID eSATA controller.

Any views?

That is overclocking mate, at stock the e6300 is at best 5% faster than the e4300, is that worth £30 extra? I would put the £30 towards getting a propper graphics card for it.

I have never used a Dell Bios but if you can increase the FSB in any way then the e4300 will own the e6300 in this system due to the low speed of the ram. People are saying that Dell lock their bios, so I am not sure if this can be overclocked.

BNut me personally I would stick with the e4300 and get a graphics card with the extra cash.
