Not as good as the 20% deal, but Dell are offering i7-860 equiped Vostro with £70 off + £50 off coupon if the machine costs £479 +

Coupon code is : G7FPTX83H50S17

I chose the £439 base spec Vostro, then upgraded to 4GB of 1333MHz RAM and IEEE-1394 firewire card to take the price up to £479.

Final cost is 504.08
Quidco also offer 5% = £478.88

Like I said not as good as the earlier 20% off deal, but still a great price for an i7-860 based system.

USEFUL COMMENTS PROVIDED BY PLAP:
"If you want the machine with 4Gb DDR 1333 RAM this is a better deal than the 20% offer:

"Creative PCI Express Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeAudio [Included in Price]" is included.
This sound card was not in the 20% offer (that just had the on-board sound only by default) goes for and approx £44 on other sites (ebuyer and the likes).

Also add
"Logitech Wireless Keyboard & Mouse Pro2800 Black UK&Irish [add £14.03]"
because this adds only £4 to the pre-VAT price (Dell glitch), costs about £35 incl. VAT in other online stores.

Make sure to select Windows 7 64bit (32 bit cannot address your full 4Gb of RAM)
and if you go for 4Gb 1066 RAM there should be some cash left for the 20-in-1 memory card reader (not checked this myself, just puzzle until you hit the £479 treshold)

Don't forget Quidco or topcashback!"

I have a couple of Qs about this.
Trying to decide if I should build an i5 750 system from scratch for about £580, or go for a Dell offer. Of course the BYO comes with much better graphics, PSU and I would imagine mobo.

Anyone know what motherboards and PSUs they use for the vostros? Because im sure a lot of us are thinking, "ill just replace the graphics card and add another HDD"

Hot deal though... good work!

I'm thinking about doing the same thing myself. I think that the i5 750 has a better punch per pound spent. And as far as i can tell the i7 machines work better when you use RAM in triples as opposed to the i5 which you can use in doubles (techies, please correct me if i'm wrong there).

This really does seem like a fair deal though..

Depends on the i7 processor: the Core i7-860 processor only supports dual-channel RAM (doubles), the Core i7-920 triple-channel RAM

To me it sounds like this i7 is your i5 but on the i5 they have disabled hyperthreading.
Correct me if am wrong :)
