i7-860 is a Quad core with HyperThreading CPU (8 threads).

Great thing about this i7 860 processor is that it will automatically self overclock or throttle the speed of CPU - turbo mode. It can shut down individual cores and speed up remaining ones which can give better performance in some situations. Here are the possible speeds;

4 Core Active 2.93GHz
3 Core Active 2.93GHz
2 Core Active 3.33GHz
1 Core Active 3.46GHz

Specs;
English Genuine Windows® 7 Professional (32 or 64 BIT)
Intel® Core i7-860 (2.80GHz, 8MB)
3072MB (1x2048 + 1X1024) 1333MHz DDR3 Single Channel
Drive 500GB Serial ATA non Raid (7200 Rpm)
Graphics: 512MB ATI Radeon HD 4350 (DVI, VGA,HDMI)
16X DVD+/- RW Optical Drive for Win 7
UK/Irish (QWERTY) Dell Standard Quietkey USB Keyboard Black
Dell 2 Button USB Optical Mouse
19-in-1 Media Card Reader

E-value code D034303

Use Code XNWXGXR5HW4WCK for £90 off
Possible Topcashback (£18 + 6%) = £40.44

Tips
Windows 7 Pro 64-bit for £0 (Windows 7 32bit will only see around 3.3GB memory max)

For £90 coupon to kick in you need basket to be over £529 ex vat (default £70 off counts towards this)

For £439.45 price I added these two;
3072MB (1x2048 + 1X1024) 1333MHz DDR3 Single Channel [add £5.00]
19-in-1 Media Card Reader [add £20.00

but you could also add;
Kensington Slim Microsaver lock [£21.00]
or
Kensington Wireless Presenter Si600 [£24.67]

The default basket price is £509.00 but there is also a standard £70 off bringing basket down to £439.00. However to qualify for the £90 off, it is the £509 price that counts, and therefore only £21 extra needs to be added.

So the £5 memory and £20 card reader is enough. I listed the Kensington options as alternatives. Basically you can add any options so long as they >= £21.

If you want a screen then look at the next system up as this automatically qualifies for £90 off without having to add any options and it also has 1GB more memory and includes the card reader as standard, reducing the actual cost of getting the screen. Both the 22" and 23" are good value.

Note not all options seem to be working due to glitch in web site e.g. wireless keyboard+mouse.

For good entry level gaming I would swap card for a Radeon HD 4670 which will give good 1680 x 1050 performance in most games. Can be purchased separtely for around £55 (very easy to install) and you might get a few quid for the Radeon HD 4350
in this.

If you want to purchase a ATI HD 4670 from Dell here is the link;
http://accessories.euro.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=uk&l=en&s=dhs&cs=ukdhs1&sku=A2980588
Use code JH5T0BP6V8374D to get price down to £56.18 delivered.
topcashback at 6% could maybe get to down to £53.31
This is a nice quiet card with an impressive heatsink (no fan)

If you want this system with a monitor see E-value Code D034304. 21.5" for £516.09 or 23" for £527.24 (prices include topbackcash)

Comes with 350W supply which is why I listed the ATI 4670. Offically this needs a 400W PSU but I have it running in a Dell Inspiron 530 with 300W PSU. Dell PSU seem to be good quality but your 5850 would need another PSU.

ATI 5850 needs 500 Watt or greater power supply with two 75W 6-pin PCI Express power connector.

How did you get 6GB option? I can only see options up to 4GB
#18
Nice find! Worth upping the memory from 1066MHZ to 1333MHZ for £5 IMO, means you can match the faster clock speed if you decide to put more ram in later. :thumbsup:

Ah just noticed that it's single and not dual channel memory with no option to change :(

Can you actually change the PSU's in Dell desktops? I haven't had one since 2000 and you couldn't then. Would be very interested in an upgrade to a radeon 5770 and a good PSU on top of this spec.

Modern Dells just use standard ATX PSUs so there is no problem changing them provided you dont get one that is physically too big for the small case,

Took me a while to put it together but it did cost a lot less than this one......:whistling:

Standard ATX is is
Height 85mm
width 150mm
depth can vary but if you can keep below 140mm you should have plenty of room for this case
This is a good 140mm PSU

Gigabyte HD 4350 512MB GDDR2 VGA DVI HDMI HDCP PCI-E Graphics Card £27.39

Total £657.91

and then you have to build it.

BTW I not knocking self build and I know the satisfaction of getting the components you want and the main benefit is that your over-clocking options are great. I choose the above components to best match the dell spec not the best to overclock I know. An i5 530 would reduce the cost and be a good overclocker.

But for the majority on here not interested in self build I thought the Dell was a great deal and still give that performance boost using turbo mode when needed.

What a rubbish deal.

I built my PC for much less wonga than that 4 years ago and it has a faster CPU.

A deal like this is what I have been waiting for! Please help me though as I am not sure what to add so if I tell you what I want can someone help me please?

[LIST=1]
[*]I have changed it to 64 bit but should I also add more memory - if so which one (I don't need loads)?

[*]Does it have built in wireless as I already have a wireless router. If not what should I add?

[*]The card reader, is that for memory cards?

[*]Is the monitor the OP recommended in the list as I couldn't see it?

[*]How do I get the topcash back, is it through the Dell site?

[*]I don't need a keyboard or mouse as I already have wireless ones.
[/LIST]

One last question - can I install office 2007 on this as I already have that?
Would really appreciate the help folks.

Cheers

You can have up to 16GB on memory option but you first need to select Windows 7 64bit

thanks to drasim for pointing this out to me
