They really screw you on the wireless pci-e. £50 for 802.11n card!

£8.99 Tenda Wireless-G PCI Adapter http://www.ebuyer.com/product/132449
£19.99 Tenda Wireless-N PCI Adapter http://www.ebuyer.com/product/155641

What wattage are these PSUs, btw anyone?

EDIT:Oops, just seen 300W. So you might want to upgrade it if you want a better video card.

For only £22.99, you get the upgrade to a 22" monitor which is WIDESCREEN!

Add it at £40 extra and in the basket the total comes to £401.34.
#7
£90+VAT for a 3650 graphics card??!!! Buy yourself an HD4670 instead and even with the extra cables you'd need it would still be less than £70.

"Modem No Modem"
It doesn't need it for use of internet,right?

If you have broadband (ADSL or Cable) then you don't need a squeaky dial up modem.

The 20" is already a widescreen monitor... They both have exactly the same resolution. The 22" screen is 2" physically bigger - every pixel is physically bigger - but you don't get more on the screen.

Never had a problem with 1680x1050 on 20" (I run that now), and wouldn't recommend the £23 extra on that unless you maybe have sight problems and would benefit from the bigger picture.

More like £50 and you don't need any extra cables for a HD 4670 as it doesn't require a PCIe power connector - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/150861.

Dell PSUs are quite highly rated, my 300W Dell PSU runs a Radeon 4870 1GB, although only just!
#13
Some of the monitor upgrades are OK and maybe a G5 mouse for £23 but every other upgrade seems to be a complete ripoff. Refunded 1p not to be infected with Norton is another good choice imo.

Gainward GTS 250 Green Edition would be a good graphics card upgrade at £68 from Scan. Powered by the PCI-e slot and does not need an aditional power cable direct from the PSU.

32bit only OS with 3GB RAM is OK but beyond 4GB you will be needing a 64bit OS.

Nice little deal mate

They'd probably throw in the trial version anyway to be generous!

Not to mention all of the other demos.
#16
I think this is a deal only available to "small and medium businesses" as it says above and below the customisation screen.

also the OS is vista BUSINESS.

It's available to anyone. At checkout when you are asked for a business name put in "home user".

My bad! I forgot that that was the reason I bought it!! You can though get away with an even more powerful card if you don't mind buying the extra cables (I have a 9800GT in one of my Vostro 220s).

would this system run that GTS250 without having to buy a new psu?
#25
Would you not be best just buying the base unit for £159 plus VAT and delivery and then purchasing a seperate widescreen monitor. There seem to be a lot of deals on here for monitors at present.

I really need to buy a computer for the home office and im guessing this will give me everythign i need but some guidance as to whether i am best buying the base unit and monitor seperately would be greatly appreciated. :thinking:

Before anyone starts, i am unable to build my own easy pc, aside form connect a mionitor and base unit so dont start on that one :p
banned#26
It might be worth noting that if you want the extended warranty, its better to buy the 3 years at the time of purchase for £59.

We took the 1 year onsite warranty for £30, but to extend it after you've purchased it, Dell want £109 for the further 2 years. £59 v's £139...........
#27
Any further advice or comments please?

Need to decide whether to order this very shortly.

Thanks

you pays your money and take your choice. £219 shipped I think for the base system. Less memory, smaller hard drive , no DVD RW, no monitor and home basic rather than home premium.

You almost definately need another 2gig of RAM and a DVD writer so theres about £40. You can probably live withe teh hard drive but can you live with home basic with no upgrade to Win7 and all the other bits of functionality that have been removed from home basic (see about 4 posts up for all the things that have been removed)?
Personally I'd buy the one at £378.

If you think you can either live without the higher spec or buy the bits cheaper to upgrade it yourself then buy the cheaper one.

Thanks for your comments. I hadnt realised that all those things were missing from the base unit. I think i may just buy the whole unit then, as that seems the easy option. :p

Im assuming you think it represents good value? I dont need any gaming capability, just somehting i can work on and watch the odd movie on.

It will easily run the GTS250 Green Edition or 9800GT Green Edition also sometimes referred to as Eco or Low Power editions. The GTS250 is a rename of the 9800GT and performance wise they are equal. These cards do not require additional power directly from the PSU. Just plug it into the PCI-e slot and you're good to go.

The Dell PSU will probably be OK with any GPU that has a single additional power connector but you won't have the correct wire ending in a 6 or 8 pin or 6+2 GPU terminal. In order to power a graphics card that needs additional power you need a cable that has two molex sockets one end and a single 6, 8 or 6+2 terminal on the other to match your choice of graphics card. The Dell PSU will be running close to it's maximum.

Avoid graphics cards that have two additional power sockets or upgrade the PSU to 500W with a decent brand name like Seasonic, Corsair, Enermax etc
#31
The Silverpower SP-SS 500W PSU is manufactured by Seasonic and @ £45 from CCL is a good replacement PSU. It has 2× built-in PCI Express graphics card connectors, 1× 6 Pin & 1× 6+2 Pin.
#32
btw this is now a pentium dual core E5400 not a C2D E5400. the upgrade price for a C2D is at least £30
