You could add 640GB (2x320GB) 7200rpm SATA Hard Drive - Dual HDD Config [add £30.00 £27.00]
Instead of upgrading the ram if you fancy 2 drives.

Add your own graphics solution for a reasonably quick gaming system.

You don't say what you want the PC for. That is what makes the difference.

Keep getting error

"Server Error in '/dellstore' Application."

The second system you list did not include a monitor - 19" monitor = £100ish value so the system just posted is far better. Stick your own graphics card in for a great little system. :-D

links seems broken, dell server error.
anyone else having the same problem?

What kind of Graphics card will fit in this? PCI-E? Does it have to be SFF?

Hi robbie . just double checked and unless im missing something it does include a 19" monitor, leaves me still wondering which is the best value, is it worth another £38.77 to get a faster processor, a graphics card and a 19 in 1 reader, albeit with a smaller hard drive and less memory??

Standard size PCIe x16

Take it right throiugh to the basket and they add on VAT plus any delivery.

With 3Gb of memory is comes to £324.30
#21
The best option is probably upgrading to the 22" monitor for £65 - total price = £368.95

Does anyone know the maximum cpu this system can handle i.e. E8xxx or Q6600?

Cheers,

Well one is from the Dell 200 range and the other from the Dell 400 range, and Dell say the 400 range are better. I can only assume they have a better motherboard in the 400.

The one from Dell 200 range only has "on board" graphics so no game playing. If you want to play games you are going to have to add a graphics card. The HD2400 that comes in the Dell 400 model costs around £30/£40, though to play modern games you will normaly need a better card.

The HD2400 does support Direct X10 so you can play games that are built for Vista/DirectX10, although I gather there are few around at the moment.

Although the E6550 CPU is better than E4500 CPU it is not a massive amount better and I think you would hardly notice the difference. Also I dont think you would notice that the 3Gb one has more memory than the 2Gb one because 2Gb is usually ample.

For basic "office " work I would go for the Dell 200 at £324.30.

To play some games and watch HD videos go for the Dell 400 at £363.08.

If you want play lots of games go for the Del 200, but be prepared to add a graphics card which could cost you £50 or more.

Note both PCs only have a 300W power supply so neither would support a top end graphics card if game playing is your thing.
#23
Note that the only memory offered is 667Mhz whereas many modern PCs offer 800Mhz nowadays.

No idea if the motherboard supports 800Mhz memory.

This is a consideration for those thinking of upgrading the CPU.

:whistling: silly me, damned vat!
#25
I can confirm that the vostro 200 supports the new E8400 cpu's
#26
£462 with the 24" monitor but with less memory, 2gb, is that a good price for this system with a big screen?
#27
Hmmm maybe im cracking up but for a minute there i thought it was a picture of an air compressor.

Good deal btw voted hot

Do you need to run a business to order this?

Just make sure you put your own real name in when asked for a business name and put home when asked where its to be used.

The 400 comes with a 6 pin power adapter which is required for VGA cards such as HD 3870 & 8800 GT; the 200 doesn’t, although you can get power adapter cables.
The 400 officially supports Quad Core but the 200 ‘should’ also as they are very similar systems.
Forget the 800MHz RAM as the gains over 667MHz on a system such as this which doesn’t allow you to over-clock or tweak the RAM settings is minimal. There’s a series of benchmarks at XbitLabs which details this. The dell will support 667 CL5 and 800 CL5 and probably nothing else.
#33
can someone tell me if i am missing something?

this deal, with a 19" TFT is £324

this deal (http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/164030/dell-vostro-400-base-unit-2-2ghz-c2/) with no monitor, but an extra 500GB HDD is £293.

otherwise they are identical.

a 19" screen costs £90
a 500GB HDD costs £50

so actually they cost the same (within £10ish). But the other deal (£293) is a vostro 400 and therefore is a better purchase because.........? (can someone finish this for me)

Incidentally, i'm looking for a new set up without a monitor as i was a lucky recipient of insights genorosity on the fujitsu 22". Any ideas? This deal would be ideal apart from the included monitor and i don't want the hassle of having to flog it.

The vostro 400 is not better than the vostro 200 by any means. It is really just the way dell have marketed their vostro products. The vostro 200 is exactly the same as the vostro 400. The only instance where the vostro 400 differs from the vostro 200 is when you select the vostro 400 with the configiration of a Q6600 quad core processor. In that case the vostro 400 would come with a slightly different version of motherboard and psu (as far as I have read). The best possible deal is to purchase this system with a 22" monitor and then sell the monitor. (That's what I mabye plan on doing). I then might sell the E4500 CPU and purhcase a E8400 CPU.
#35
even if you bought this deal and sold the monitor (say £80), that leaves you £50 better off than getting the other deal, but with 500GB less storage which would cost you that saving to replace. obviously 1000GB is massive and i can't think of any way i could fill that.

or perhaps i could - would one of these machines handle high def content which could be streamed over a wireless network to a PS3? would it need dedicated graphics for this?
#36
You only get a 1 year warranty on the monitor which would put me off.

Your probably about right however I think there is more money to be had in terms of re-sale value by choosing the 22" monitor. This should play HD content, my advice would be to source this software - http://www.coreavc.com/ (It is the best software available for HD playback)

These are small power supplies at 300W, is replacing the PSU straightforward on Dells or are there hidden difficulties? I do have a 500W PSU I would need to put in before fitting a better graphics card.
I'm a bit out of date with pcs (only buy em every couple of years) and am looking for a games machine, don't need a monitor. I'm thinking of upgrade PSU, use the low end card initially, then whack in a better one when the Nvidia 8800 (I think it's that?) hits the £90 mark.

Your thoughts, oh Great Gods of Tech Support? :p

Dell now uses standard PSU's so any standard atx psu should work! Also dell under-rate their PSU's so the 8800 might actually work (search google)
