Thats a great deal, anyone know of a good deal on a 22" screen or I was going to go for this one... http://www.meshcomputers.com/Default.aspx?GCLID=CMqQhLGhupACFQ9tMAodUWkeHA&PAGE=PRODUCTVIEWPAGE&USG=PRODUCT&ENT=PRODUCT&KEY=270209&APPS=244230

Yeah, it does seem that the 22" monitor is approx £60 - £80 more dear than my LG 22" which I purchased few months back for £189. I would consider (and advise) people to consider the LG 22" as it has 2ms as I've not come accross any other with such low ms.

If anyone does sort out a deal for the monitor can you take down name and extention of the person, might come in use later...

5% Quidco too, I was looking at building a similar spec computer. Albeit with branded parts instead of generic ones and it came to £680 before a keyboard.

Hi,

Any views on whether this would make a good Media PC hooked up to a 42" 1080p plasma?

Thanks.

I would've thought that with the right card, remote and OS this would make a blinding media PC, in fact far too good a one. The best thing to do would be to use an older and compatible PC.

I have a three year old Shuttle PC with AMD Athlon 64 3000+, 1GB RAM driving a 40" 1080p TV with a modest Radeon 9600 128MB GFX card and it ran very nicely for two years with Windows MCE. Now it's running Vista Home Premium and still manages OK. Games are out of the question but for music, photos and video it is all right.
This Dell would walk it as an HTPC. The only concern I would have is whether the fans would be noisey. I've actually popped one in my basket but would be grateful if anyone could comment on fan noise from that meaty GFX card as that could be a showstopper. I certainly dont want to listen to a howling gale when watching a simple slideshow, or editing a few photos.

I think you're rightly concerned about the noise from the graphics card. Having said that, some graphics, even higher end ones don't have fans at all.

This is a hot deal make no mistake, can't believe it's so not rated hotter! Very tricky to build a system cheaper without using cheap parts

Dilemna I have now is Buy this or Build my own system:

My System = £800 (similar spec) Q6600 go stepping, 3gb ram 800mhz, raid0 320gb hdx2, 8800gt gpu (£167 ebuyer)
Dell XPS = £620 with xfi sound

Pro's of my system:

Can overclock 2.4ghz to 3.3ghz quite easily so more future proof
Uses antec p182 case so very quiet
Zalman fan runs it cool (only £30)
Quicker ram 800mhz


Con's

More expensive £180 ish
More hassle if things go wrong

Please help me make my decision Thanks!!

ifa, I'd go for the Dell mostly for the massive saving, though the other option is very tempting too (as I'd rather build my own). You could still overclock the Dell CPU (loses warranty of course) with a sufficient aftermarket cooler if it'll fit in the case - it doesn't have to be a £30 one. You may need to get the faster RAM though for optimum overclock results & sell the slower stuff on eBay. Also try to find out what motherboard the Dell uses as this is also important for a good overclock.
They may be biased, but also try the Dell forums & see what they have to say. You could ask what CPU cooler(s) would fit in the XPS 420 case & the motherboard used if nothing else ;-) - Dell upgrade hardware forum.

I did some digging around regarding the noise levels from this machine and the comments I saw were very favourable. I placed my order late on 1st Jan and it is now being packaged for shipping, at lunchtime on the 4th.

EDIT : Delivery now scheduled for the morning of the 8th :)

Just got my system delivered and it looks very nice. Not booting it up just yet as it is very cold and don't want to risk it. Just a note the 8800GT 512mb version is supplied with a 375w psu.

So what are noise and heat levels looking like for these then?

Not too sure about the heat levels yet but the noise levels are very low, especially compared to my old AMD system. In fact when I walk back in the room it's so quiet to the point i'm thinking that it must've switched itself off but actually hasn't.
