I've been looking for a deal for ages and missed a cracker over the Christmas hols. I think this and a further one I've just posted are on the whole great.

Might be worth waiting a few mins for others who are expert in the PC field to post. I've found their advice very useful.:thumbsup:

Good luck and do try the quidco site

Here is one here: (Thanks to currychops for this one) :)
http://www.pcnextday.co.uk/products/ProductDetail.asp?ProductCode=3362-3304

Price is £500, not sure if delivery is free as I have not tried to checkout with it.

The only difference is that this one comes with a full on 256mb 7600GS graphics card (better), 250gb hard drive (bigger), DVD dual layer 16x burner (better), you also get speakers and 52 in 1 flash card drive.

The downside compared to the dell is this one comes with a 17" tft (worse), and only has XP home with no Vista upgrade (worse) and it costs £31 more.

It all depends on your needs but I would go with PC next day but only for the better graphics, what you get on PCNextday is better graphics and more space on teh hard drive. What you get on the Dell is bigger screen and Vista upgrade.

Both are great buys, it's all down to personal preference.
#4
Yes a great deal at pcnextday.
#5
Hi,

Yes I agre but dunno why to me I still prefer the Dell deal...better case etc and has options which I need more i.e. bigger screen..whcih Ill sell to get the widescreen etc
[mod]#6
D01E06B is quite a nice system:thumbsup: it only lacks a graphics card to make it complete really. I would suggest if you buy it to get a graphics card elseware as Dells offerings are a bit pricey.
#7
Terrific price. I'd be tempted to buy it, then instantly flog the motherboard and 6300 for maybe £150 on ebay. Next month buy the e4300 for £120 and a Gigabyte S3 mboard for £70ish, and overclock it to 3.2ghz (or more).

Total upgrade cost, £40, taking it to about £500 total after quidco, and you've got a machine as fast as the top end Core2.
#8
Nice deal...much depends on your gaming requirements as the graphics will be very limited.
#9
How much roughly woult it cost to make this PC 2GB...Do we have to buy from DELL as they are usually expensive in RAM?

Thanks

As I am really interested in this deal.
[mod]#10
Dell upgrade to 2x 1024meg strips is £94 and its not a bad deal, Crucial isnt much less than that and you would if you chose to buy from them have used all 4 slots up with 2x512 from dell and 2x512 from crucial.

But why not go for this instead as it already has more than your choice for only £30 more than the cost of this one plus extra ram.

D01E03 - £586.32 delivered or less.

Does anybody know what Dells policy is with the warranty, ie could I install a graphics card bought seperately without invalidating the warranty? Could I go one step further and put in more memory? Could I even swap out the dvd writer (the one supplied won't deal with DVD-RAM) or add a PCI wireless adapter?

It's just that I have heard from other sources that Dell claim that opening the case voids the warranty. Has anyone any knowledge of this?

I'm interested in purchasing a new pc! I'm after a htpc would any of these dell offers be a good htpc?

are the fans and psu noisy on the dell pcs?

I suspect I could easily add a couple of tv cards would the graphics card have hdmi or dvi out?

thanks in advance
#13
Thanks MikeT....but I have ntocied the processors of the 2 machines are slightly different? Also do you think the deals this Thrusday will get any better. Just that I messed an E520 deal around a few weeks back with 2gb ram and 250gb HD for £480!

So waiting for a Bargain Deal! lol

No case seals on dells so do as you wish, they expect customers to change parts and even offer pictorial manuals on line to show how, if it needed to be returned under warranty I would suggest putting it back as delivered though as they only warranty their stuff of course and it would be hard for them to trouble shoot it with your bits in there.

The Viiv cpu has a couple of extra instuctions in it for multimedia thats all, they are normally priced the same and are swoppable in the build pages.
As to future deals I wish they let me know, I keep hoping for at least one extra special bargain each week!

The cases on these are really very quiet fan wise, you will have to be careful if you fit a graphics card with fan though as you will hear that.

Others who have already used dells for htcp will have to answer that question.
Check the specs pages for slots available and graphic card options.

Welcome to the forums too:thumbsup:

It is actually must better to phone Dell than to place the order over the internet.

Argue your point. I.e. PC comes with Vista but only a DirectX9 graphics card etc... I got close to £200 knocked of a Dimension 9200, so I got the PC cheaper than the equivalent E520 model with a better graphics card.

Plus they will knock 50% off the 2 year warranty saving £50. If you want peace of mind.

I agree - the new Dell cases, especially the E520/1 machines are whisper quiet. If you want to keep it that way look for a Gigabyte fanless 6600GT silentpipe graphics card - this will play most games at reasonable quality settings and has no fan. Or get an XFX 7600GT with a variable speed fan (the card runs very quiet until it enters 3D mode and then increases fan speed so most of the time it's reasonably quiet).
If you are buying a 7600GT card you have to watch what you're buying because some of them have variable speed fans, and some just run at full fan speed the whole time - DON'T buy the latter!

You are right you can get a good deal on the phone from Dell but prioir to my recent internet order being place I had several "offered" made on the phone and then sent through by email to me but found that they we not what was agreed on the phone.

Chip changed in one case

Monitor in another.

Go on the phone but be careful and take into account the lost 5% quidco ( on net Vat )
#24
Thanks Stags, just reviewed my order quote and my order acknowledgment and they are what I agreed.

As I blagged around £200 off the internet price, Im quite happy to have lost the 5%.

What I should have pointed out as well during my negotiations was I looked at the buy now pay Jan '08. As soon as I mentioned that they lowered the price at least two times to make me buy the PC in a single payment.

As for graphics upgrade, I would suggest if anyone has gone for the 20" or 24" widescreen then get a Nvidia 7950 otherwise the 7900GS is a reasonable price at £90.

However if you have the cash go for something like a 8800GTS as this graphics card is DirectX10 compatible.
#25
The 7900GS is a very good card mate but I would suggest if anyone wants a card with a £100 budget to buy the ATI X1900GT as it beats the 7900gs in almost every app and game in available.
#26
i brought this computer on friday!...

haggled hard and got a free dvd upgrade to the twin burner!

its also a home PREMIUM upgrade on the vista theres quite a big difference between the normal home and premium upgrade!

however.. rang them today to ask when order was going to be delivered!! and apparently its been canceled for no reason! she told me she knew nothing else and i would have to contact customer care.. and would you believe it CUSTOMER CARE is only open Mon-Fri !!

great!:thumbsup: :? :? :? :? :? :?

lady on the phone prompted me to reorder straight away!

customer care only open mon - fri but willing to take orders 7 days a week!!!.. come on dell sort it out!
#27
Did they tell you why your ordered had been cancelled? I was planning buy one tomorrow and I'd hate for them to cancel the order and not tell me, forcing me to re-order once the offer had gone!

By the way, does anyone know if the deal says expires on 24th Jan, then the deal will actually change on the 25th ie will the offer still be there on Wednesday?

Thanks

Yes, I feel the need, the need for speed!
