Cold, can get an I5 and even an I7 for less than this.

And the PC you posted with 4GB ram for £387 (+2 year warranty).

Super Cold!

So you link to a PC with less ram, a smaller hard drive and no monitor? Perhaps this is a cold deal, but your post is very misleading.
It amazes me the people actually buy from dell. Cheaper to build your own pc.
I didn't see there's had a monitor, but with £200 you can easily upgrade it above and beyond theres.

Anyone who's comfortable upgrading a pc should be comfortable building a pc. Prebuilts aren't for those people, they're for people who just want something that works, and a warranty. Some people just aren't interested in building their own. Personally I almost always build my own but a year or so ago I bought an HP ML110 G5 from ebuyer for 110 quid or so. Even now you couldn't build it for that. Prebuilts aren't always overpriced.

If spec for spec this is available cheaper then it's cold, but posting a similar but lower spec (on several counts) pc and saying this is overpriced because that's cheaper is silly.
It amazes me the people actually buy from dell. Cheaper to build your own pc.

A rough guide to what it would cost ME to buy the parts for this PC is:

Quad Q8300 - £105
Motherboard- £50
Memory - £100
Graphics - £50
Case/PSU - £40
Hard drive - £60
CD/DVD - £15
Windows - £50
Screen - £100
Kb/Mouse/Cardreader - £20

This comes to £590 (it will be probably more as I have been generous on some prices).

Dell are building it and shipping it to me for £587.

Do tell me how I am going to save any money (at least enough to make it worth doing).

I have built half a dozen PCs in the last few years, and not one of them has worked out cheaper than buying it direct from Dell.

Dell have such huge buying power they can buy the parts for a PC FAR cheaper than I ever can

Here we go....:whistling:
I actually think it's a pretty reasonable if you can get it at that price, but it appears to be £730. The monitor is around £150 so the system is about £440. Definately not as cold as some people are making out but it doesn't appear to be the price quoted in the first post.
All the people that say "build your own is always cheaper" never include the cost of a Windows operating system as they're a bunch of yarrrrrs. As a Dell fan I've had this discussion with many people. "But what about the cost of the Windows licence?" - "Ohhhh...".
Put in my basket for £728.99 and none of the coupons work

All I get is :-

The following coupons have been entered but require additional information or do not meet eligibility requirements. Click "View Details" link(s) for more information.

It comes with 2Yr In-Home Warranty Support, including evenings and Saturdays [Included in Price] which you can't cancel online ???

How do I get this down to £587 ??????
Should be expired as price has changed.
