They do look far smarter than the older Inspiron model

£523.10 with the 23in Full HD monitor for those that wants a little bit bigger display.

not bad,but does it have that ****** 300 watt psu,very limiting!
#5
Pretty good.. Not the best gfx card, but will handle most things... great CPU.. Shame about the RAM : [2x1024 + 2x512] - that means there are no free slots to upgrade.. also, Dell will only sell 32-bit OS's :S

Personally, I'd add the 512MB ATI® Radeon™ HD 4670 graphics card for only 40quid, has double the score in most 3dmark ratings, or even the 512MB nVidia GeForce 9800GT graphics card for 90 quid..
#6
how do you know its 300w? i doubt a 300w PSU will be able to power all that
#7
Its £487 if you take out the keyboard

The 32-bit key works for the 64-bit edition too. You just need an installation disk.

I'm pretty sure you can buy a better card seperately for those prices... without looking very hard you can get a 4850 for £125.

Very good deal indeed, hot!

thanks,still to low for most decent graphic cards!

its next to impossible to upgrade a dell computer without buying part from them direct.

ram being the hardest.
#15
Dell tend to underrate there PSU's and can run powerful things quite easily.
#16
hot that is one of the best --was considering MESH anyone think I was wrong

Oh yeah I really like the look. And the spec seems damn good for the price.

Great price - but some may like to consider the Core i7 system from Dell for extra performance and an edge for futureproofing but at higher cost.

Hot deal.

i7 isnt in the same price range though. this Dell is impressive for under 500 notes, its just the PSU thats worying. if your going to put in a decent graphics card i wouldnt want a PSU under 500W in this.

Are you on crack? Dell, like most PC manufacturers use standard non-ecc DDR ram to keep costs down, any decent supplier like Kingston or Crucial will be able to supply RAM for this system at a good price and it's one of the easiest upgrades to perform.

Re. the PSU, as above 350W is more than adequate these days and you will find it's a 'real 350W unlike the quoted power on some cheap PSU's - Manufacturers are also trying to make PC's a bit more friendly to the environment and use less power in general and especially lower the idle power consumption.

Absolute rubbish. You can use the crucial memory finder to see that you can buy memory without going to Dell! :thinking:

Any ram will work in a dell, ive upgraded my work dell's countless times with off the shelf ram. The only thing its hard to upgrade is the motherboard really.

The 4850 and the 9800 GT are roughly the same performance-wise... Personally, I like nVidia over ATI..

Didn't know that 32-bit keys work with 64-bit, thanks for the heads up :)

It has 350W according to the specs page but 300W is easily enough for this configuration anyway which should pull less than 200W DC at full load; i.e. around 230W AC at the wall socket.

"shuttsies" - I can see where you're coming from with this comment, as I remember that Dell (and Compaq) used to be very difficult to upgrade. However, I know that Dell RAM can be upgraded OK as per other posts in this thread - and have used the Crucial memory advisor to do this:

http://www.crucial.com/uk/

They also state that they'll "find a memory upgrade compatible with your computer. Guaranteed!" - so although they're more expensive than some retailers, it would provide something of a 'comfort factor' - and is still alot cheaper than Dell.

dell have an xps 430 with ddr3 ram and hd4850 with discounts and quidco you can get this for around 50pound more that the above deal and it is 64bit operating system, i know you don't get a monitor but wouldn't this be better long term value?

Is there a way to get free delivery on this?

Link please ??

This seems like a good deal, not sure if its great though.

How is the 23" monitor compared to the one that I purchased for £199 off this forum around a month ago (SP version with HDMI 2048x1152 resolution), is it almost as good?

Link please ??


Link for xps430:

http://www1.euro.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/desktop-xps-430?c=uk&cs=ukdhs1&l=en&s=dhs&~ck=mn

if you choose the one without a monitor you can choose 64bit os for free and up the ddr3 to 1333 fro about 20quid.

is this a good spec?

cheers

"is more than adequate these days " what a ridiculous thing to say. Totally dependant on what you put in it and below many graphics cards specs alone.

Wouldn't touch Dell. It's so easy to build your own system using true quality components. Yes I know that can be more expensive but at least you know what's in it

Will get shot down as hukd is a Dell fansite.

they seem to be taking longer than i thought they would, if you go to the dell website and look at the 430 desktops choose the one at 599, the spec is ddr3 and hd4850, with the link that has been placed on this posting you get 10% off and also quidco of 6%. If you up the ddr3 to 1333 for 20quid i think the total price is around just over the 500quid mark, even without a monitor this seems to be very cheap, let me know what you think (my computer knowledge isn't the best) cheers. ady

Your model SP2309W is the better one of the two.
Just go on the Dell site and put in your model and the other one (S2309W) to compare for yourself. :)

It's nothing to do with being a dell fansite, this site is all about those who want the best for their money. It's easy to say you could build your own, however price up your comparison machine and then try and justify the extra spend.

I would agree that the machine isn't perfect, neither are you paying perfect money. It's all compromises. What's important is pricing up the benefits lost in those compromises and seeing if you still have a good value proposition.
