The more expensive one has a faster processor, a Core 2 Duo, and a bigger hard drive, (320 instead of 250gb). The cheaper one uses an Athlon Dual Core and Athlons are not leading the race at the moment. But both machines are very well specced and if money was tight you could go for the cheaper option and not miss very much. The more expensive one will be a bit faster going round corners, that's all... I'm very tempted I must say. But the wife will kill me if I buy another PC...

This PC would murder the AMD offering if the BIOS allows you to overclock the processor. The Core2Duos can easily run 50% faster on the stock coolers provided. I just don't know what the Dell BIOS allows...

No overclocking unless if you buy a XPS.

I'm a n00b but couldn't you just flash the bios and load a different one? By connecting a laptop or something. Not easy if you don't know what you're doing, but if you have some knowledge I imagine it wouldn't be too difficult.

Dell offer BIOS upgrades that you can run from the Windows environment, but it'll only be for the specific model and certainly won't give you the overclocking features you require if that is only on the XPS systems

If i am not mistaken this link takes me to a £703.82 dell dimension E520.

It is the same computer but alot more expensive.

This website is really confusing. I click on the £569 dell dimension E521 which has the spec the computer posted in this topic describes and i click on the link for a £569 computer and it opens up a computer that costs £667.69?!?

See original post - you must select the most basic option under 'Support Services' to achieve the lower price.

Righto thanks.
#11
Yeah :) As gobofraggle has mentioned. You need to select the 1 year collect and return option for the lowest price Albatross ;-) Welcome to HotUKDeals by the way.

Thanks for the feedback all...

Is the "Buy now, pay Feb 2008" trustworthy?

I'm very tempted but want to pay in 12 months, and if its 0% I might as well.

Tried to follow this link, but end up with a system costing £650 (after upgrading the monitor to 19" digital flat panel and graphic card to Radeon X1300 - no idea if these are good upgrades, but seem to be?)

I am also looking at a Dimension C521, with Athlon X2 4600+, similar spec to above (inc monitor and graphic card upgrade), with a digital/analogue TV card but only 1BG memory and 160 GB hard drive [I currently have 60 GB hard drive and no where near filling it, so don't need the larger drive. Will try to get dell, at the least, to put single 1GB RAM module in, rather than 2*512 GB. Don't know if need 2GB - if I do I'llle to upgrade later). This comes in at £640 ish
(and has a smaller case, which I fancy)


All a bit difficult to select between the various options - any advice welcome.


ps any one got advice on Graphic cards - how adequate is the X1300? Would it play reasonable games (i.e. not looking for real top end, just to be able to play half life 2 on acceptable level of detail etc). Looked at tomshardware link, but doesn't tell me this answer.


First time post here - this is a useful website - thanks to all who contribute

Welcome to HotUKDeals HangFire and Thanks for your post :)

When you want the lowest price, you need to select 1 year collect and return option on this one.

The graphics capabilities should suit your requirements, as not "real top end".

For memory upgrades, you're probably better off buying them from Crucial later, rather than pay Dell's high prices. You can use QuidCo for cashback to save you a little more.
#15
Choose this when going through the configuration:
Collect & Return, 1 Year Service only [Included in Price]
#16
I make the total with those additions £633.32 delivered

Thanks for reply rayman (particularly re graphics card - I used to have fair knowledge of hardware, but last couple of years have passed me by):thumbsup:

I'm pretty sure I selected the 1 yr return & collect option and still got the higher price. Any, moot point now, as I have ordered system mentioned above. (My old PC has completely died - currently using my work laptop, so getting new system was pretty urgent)

Thought about using quidco, but managed to get near the same saving on the phone (everytime they mention 'thats as low as I can go' I found if I talked about other aspects then brought in another argument they might knock a little more off). Prefer to deal direct with Dell if possible, rather than try to get cash back later, if cost comes about the same.
