Thanks but that is £82 more...

It's £82 more, but you get 8GB rather than 3GB of RAM, and in a dual channel rather than single channel config, so performance will be much better.
#5
but for that extra £82 you get:

64 bit OS instead of 32 bit.
5GB more ram
140GB more HDD space

Thought ths might have been a good deal for people looking to buy a basic Core i7 Desktop with Windows 7

Thanks.. some people are on a budget... like me... so was looking for a Core i7 and found this and to be within my budget... and the cheapest I could find around....

You can get the Win 7 64 bit at not cost... just checked again...

This also gives you the option of x64 at the same price.
It also comes with Win 7 Pro which is a £30 upgrade on the other system.
For those that require that it does change the comparative value for money.
I’d usually choose a Studio XPS over a Vostro which from my experience offer very cheap cases; my mother has one and the side panel makes an annoying vibrating sound.

640GB hard dirve you have to add only £20 more.

I wouldn't go with an i7 system if the RAM isn't in a triple channel setup. i7 is optimized for that...

i7 is available for two desktop platforms and only one supports triple channel memory. That is the one that is actually designed for dual processor systems and was also released for high end single socket desktops. Benchmarks show that typically the gain in moving from dual to triple channel memory for desktop applications with single socket systems is negligible.

Quite a large difference if you ask me :)

That’s comparing single to triple channel memory judging by the graph and also it seems to be a synthetic benchmark. If you have any real world benchmarks comparing dual to triple channel memory using desktop applications that would be of interest. You do realise that synthetic benchmarks are irrelevant?

See Anandtech for a comparison of Bloomfield versus Lynnfield (triple v dual channel RAM) - Link

Forget what I said, re-reading the thread has answered my question :)
