I just had an error clicking on the link, so here is the direct link: http://configure.euro.dell.com/dellstore/config.aspx?c=uk&cs=ukdhs1&l=en&kc=&oc=D055108

I presume one can upgrade this PC with own graphic card, sound card etc?
#3
Yes you can....and the case is easy to open as well - just a a few screws to undo, and then the side panel slides off.

Im thinking of setting up at a PC for under my stairs as a file system. Store my music, video, pictures on it and access them from my other pcs around the house and also to access them to watch on my PS3, Xbox 360.

Would you recommend these specs for that use?
#5
To be honest, I'm not an expert on using PC's as file systems, however I do have my wireless network set up at home, and its very easy to stream movies and music to my 360 from my Dell using Media Center.

Im just wondering about how fast would a pc have to be able to have 3/4 pcs connected and storing files on it possibly at the same time.

I have my PC setup like this at the minute (Buts its a Quad Core, 4GB, 8800 etc) but I wanna setup a smaller box to stick under the stairs instead of having my really loud pc on 24/7.

The spec is plenty fast enough to handle what you want to do. It's more likely that network bandwidth would be more of a problem especially if you would be streaming from more than one of the PC's. If you have a wired network running at 100mbs then that shouldn't be a problem but a wireless one even at 54 Mbs might struggle (as it isn't really 54 Mbs).

I'm looking to get a PC to place under my TV, and used to playback 1080p video via HDMI.

Other than having to add an HDMI board, does anyone know if this would be powerful enough to handle .mkv files?

Careful on the graphics card, do you know what psu this has?
#10
It will not the most powerful PSU in the world (about 300w I think for something of this spec)...however if you check the Dell forums, I'm pretty certain you will be able to find what is the most powerful card you could put in this without melting it!
