Dell also sent me an email saying buy one vostro and get 50% off another identical system, this was from the business site, so worth checking out if two people want the same one and its available on business site.

can you explain what you mean for a numpty like me...does it mean that I get over £1000 worth of PC for £349?....bargain then...or have I misread your post?...aha...you're buying 3 of them....so the relevance of such a long winded post was ??? lol :)

any good for games? or not..


As it stands, no. The computer should come with a PCI-E slot into which you could plug a graphics card of your choice (you can pick up some pretty decent mid range cards for £70 now). It won't be stellar performance, but you get a fair bit for relatively little money.

This would NOT be ideal for gaming. Even with a higher end graphics card, the spec of this machine is too entry level. Not a bad deal by any means, just it won't be very good for gaming.

I'm not sure where he got that price from, but the list price for the computer shows up as £515.99, so a saving of £167 over the list price. Still a decent saving

No.. that poster bought 3 of them.

It's either a misprice or a promo. Dell are also selling the same PC with no monitor and 1GIG less RAM for £20 cheaper..

Good find if your in the market for a new PC or a Crimbo pressie..

No this isn't good enough for high end gaming..

£1000 bit means i got 3 of them which i think is a cracking deal, but i'm the numpy lol not u could have saved another 5 % with quidco.
#15
I bought this in PCWorld the other week for £449 with a 20" monitor, as I don't use it should have waited as sure hubby wouldn't have noticed the difference in screen size lol
#16
It's not too bad for gaming. Upgrade the memory to 4GB, buy a proper graphics card for about £100 (which also may require a power supply upgrade) and your ready to go. You will be able to play most (newer/recent/last two years or so) PC games at around medium settings if you put a 4850/4870 in that system, no problem, even with only 3GB memory.
#17
It allways puzzles me how peeps describe a Pc as entry level if it's not a gaming setup, The vast majority of home and business users have no need for super gaming machine. And a pc like this is certainly more then entry level,a 1gb cpu 512mb & 20gb hdd would meet the needs of alot of users needs lol :P . And be quite content to power up the ancient ps3 for games.

does anyone know if any of the win 7 machines posted come in 32 bit? cheers

Some good choices on these clone parts, probably better than the Dell in most ways but surely delivery from 3 different companies adds a bit.... and windows 7 premium is about £50-70 unless you have a cheeky way (such as student deals or other). I quite like this deal but i don't like the upgrade uncertainty on the Dells. Just add a decent graphics card and better PSU for a gaming rig as was suggested above may not even be possible on some Dell builds.

http://www.buildyourown.org.uk/pc-building/ gives a basic overview of how to build a pc, reading the manuals for the motherboard and case will tell you the rest.

free delivery from ebuyer and dabs when you spend over £50. i get free delivery from scan too with their i29 promotion of free delivery for life, or you can use the hexus forums or avforums 50post minimum for free delivery.

I ordered all those parts at the weekend, i'm building a pc for my friend so just pasted my purchase list in.

My spec if better than dells, you dont get a keyboard/mouse/card reader but those are cheap if you want them. Ubuntu 9.04 is free too, it is for a friend who just uses it for word processing and editing/printing his photos, plenty of power for simple usage like that.
#23
Definitely not a misprice. This system has been on at this price for a few weeks now, it used to have Vista but now will come with Windows 7 home premium 64bit.

As someone who used to build PCs, I'd say that saving twenty quid for 180Gb of disk space and 1Gb of RAM is not worth the trouble, you have the risk of a DOA component and you still have to find a legal copy of Win7. If you want to build a PC it's easy enough but you will only save money on high end gear not on the bargain basement where Dell and the others are so cheap it's really not worth a couple of hours of your time to build one. AND you've neglected to add in a mouse, keyboard and card reader!

Heat added
suspended#27
with dell you only get 1yr warranty on the monitor and psu though, my alternative has 3yrs warranty for those things. Dell psu's are more likely to fail than the corsair psu.

Alot of ppl already have a copy of an o.s and have a mouse/keyboard/card reader hence when i just did a price listing of a desktop case + monitor only.

You can also upgrade the computer in the future which you can't do as much with the dell.

Your not comparing like with like, though.

The vast majority of computer buyers either can't or don't want to build their PC; they just want to take it out of the box, connect the keyboard, mouse and monitor and get started.

£20 cheaper, that’s ridiculous as you haven’t budgeted for the O/S, postage or a keyboard or mouse! :roll:
For most people having a 1 year warranty on their full system along with tech support is much more useful than a 3 year warranty on the power supply. The lack of a decent warranty on the monitor is the main issue for me with these deals.
#30
It would have been better to get the £219.99 deal from ebuyer, get the £60 Windows 7 and then get your own 22" screen. That said, my old man got this deal yesterday because it's all from one place and he is covered. Which is fair enough I suppose.....

Hot deal but wouldn't be my choice :)

I agree - plus I'm useless at building those shiny things.
#33
Dell offer is good, but ordered from Ebuyer and will get monitor seperate.
#34
At the risk of souding silly....

Is this PC quiet when it is running? I have one at the moment which sounds like a hoover! Would the ebuyer one be quieter?
#35
Basically you are getting a free monitor on this deal as the retail price of the computer spec if you go on the dell site and configure it is £356....
#36
Apparently the Ebuyer one is quite loud, but surely not as loud as the one it is replacing in my case which is 8 years old. Even if it is loud, you can replace the fans.
#37
Is it easy to replace the fans? I literally would not know where to start with it!
