not great m8, 2tb in stripe?, imagine having to rebuild that if a drive failed and gts240 would hold this system back bigtime..
#2
Fair play.
I'm not really in the know to be honest.
I just saw the Dell discount + Code and figured it was a good deal.
Glad I didn't order straight away!
Still looking for a good PC though, with about a £500 budget, prefferably with more than a years warranty but that seems hard to come across.
I seem to come by a good-ish system but something usually holds it back (usually graphics card).
Any pointers towards a better system would be appreciated.

Dell seemed to have bought a huge amount of GTS240 (which is basically the third iteration of the 30 month old 8800GT IIRC) and are throwing them in to pretty much all of their higher-end systems.
They have gaming machines with these cards in so that you're spending £1000 on a system, £70 of which is graphics cards, which is just all wrong. In addition, many times Dell won't allow you to pick a video card upgrade so that you have to buy one and install it yourself.

Well...

I am in the same position as the thread starter.

I want a new PC (base unit only).

I am looking for an i5 750 processor, min 500gb HDD, 4gb memory and windows 7.

Dont really game but I want a future proof PC that is fast.

Dont want to spend more than £500.............

Any thoughts...?

And I DO NOT WANT TO BUILD IT MYSELF..............!!!!!!!!!!! (to save 50p) :-D

That is because the general public focuses mostly on Hard Drive size and amount of RAM.

Building it yourself is not about saving money, it's about being able to specify exactly the parts that you want because no big system integrator builds the specific machine that you want. (i5 750, 5770/5850 1.5TB 4GB Win7 ?) You also know the specific parts of your machine and that any part can be swapped out and replaced by another if it fails or if you want to upgrade (with the expectation of obsolescence).


That is because the general public focuses mostly on Hard Drive size and amount of RAM.


Yes, yet another reason why computers aren't consumer devices.
CPU and Graphics Card designations change so often that no-one who isn't specifically keeping would be able to tell which ones are the fastest. Even those that are keeping up can often disagree over what the best solution may be for a specific purpose. HDD space and RAM size are two easy to judge figures that regular consumers can use to make a decision on which machine; it's a mixture of laziness and being uninformed (or, as I like to call it, the Stupid Tax).
The bottom line is that even the "salesman" in the store probably won't be well trained enough to properly inform a prospective customer the probable best solution to what they want the computer for. Instead the large stores will look to push a specific model because they make more profit on it and then sell you an extended warranty that your inherent consumer rights probably already provides.

in the whole i tend to agree with amdavies but must add i don't think its a good idea for everyone to attempt to build their own, odd chance something goes wrong will leave joe avg in a very nasty pickle indeed.

doing a quick price up with scan and ebuyer the spec given above by clumsden2000 on a component basis came in at avg £630 incl a gts250 but using decent components ie asus,gigabyte, antec, silverstone so if anyone can get a prebuilt system for that well done,
if not consider tracking down a local guru and offering him 70 to do it for you.

You could try the dell outlet shop.

I just picked up an XPS 8100 for £506

i5
6 gig ddr3
1 gb hd5770
1 terabyte HD
windows 7 64 bit



It was listed as scratched ..But for the life of me could not see where.

This has a one year warranty as standard.

It is worth waiting for free delivery as it is offered quite often ...Also twitter seems to be the place they offer discount codes.

seems like a bargain but depends on the i5 as there is a large range of those.

The main thing with the outlet shop is to keep going back and looking.

Stock changes daily and the good , cheap stuff doesn't stay around for long.

If you can look every day ..in the day time is my rule for finding a real bargain.

Free delivery is worth waiting for.

EDIT
