Did you apply the EX110 keyboard and use the 10% voucher?
#6
yeh i added the keyboard and added that code, it says i have 15% off and gives me a discount of £3ish and als o £50 off and gives me a discount of £58ish and also free shipping, looks a little messed up, cant make it out
#7
Still working fine for me :)
#8
Its £527.69 until you add the Logitech keyboard then it drops to £509.99! Probably an error so grab it while you can.
The Logitech EX110 is terrible IMO so budget for a decent keyboard out of the £18 you save by including it.

The hard drive upgrades are cheap; from 500GB base you can get:

2x320GB for £18 or
2x500GB for £60.

Fill yer boots. :thumbsup:

Also about £21/£22 quidco on this :)

Only if you disable Flash.
#11
good find emasu...voted hot
#12
Forgot to mention you could have 500GB Dual Hard Drive Raid 0 Stripe (2x250GB - 7200rpm) instead of what it is in place as standard if you wanted for the same price.

Thanks Agent_Silver :)
#13
Looks good, which would be better 500gb SATA or 500gb (2x250) Raid?

Also, would the gfx card be good enough to run things like Crysis?
#14
Lot of raid problems with this machine (see the dell community forum) stick to non raid!

Definitely - This would run crysis fine on high/medium
#16
Just to re-iterate, don't get the raid version. There are a load of problems with the raid controller software and after getting this deal last time everyone ended up reformatting it to non-raid.

Thanks. :thumbsup:
#18
i have the 8800gt 512mb it will run crysis with nearly all settings on high it wil also depend on size of screen smaller screen higher frame rate its a **** hot card that can handle all games on high settings.
#19
I have a widescreen monitor set at 1600x1050, I guess I'd need to turn them setting down to medium then.
#20
thanks i have been waiting for a good deal at around this price (500-550) for a dell pc that i can use for games, may be tempted

If you wanted to use it wirelessly, you would have to add a wireless card or wireless USB 'dongle' to the base unit, Dell don't fit these as standard. They are available from Dell as an optional extra however usually cheaper buying elsewhere. If you wanted to use it over a conventional wired network nothing extra would be needed as it has an onboard ethernet connection.
Excellent machine incidentally and looks fantastic - I have one with the same processor but 4GB RAM, 2 x 500GB (non-RAID) and the top of the range 768MB 8800 GTX video card and it really flies. This replaced the first one which I had that I had to return as it experienced lock-ups and other problems probably due to RAID issues that others seem to have experienced too - that's why I went for non-RAID in my replacement and haven't had a single problem with it. On-board audio is fine however well worth investing in the x-fi sound card if you have a decent PC speaker set-up and want to get the best out of it; I have that hooked up to a Logitech 5.1 system and it sounds fantastic. I also have the integrated bluetooth option with the memory card reader which is invaluable for quick file transfer.

You need to add the logitech keyboard and enter the voucher code: LG$C6?DF?$M734 at checkout for £509.

Bargin - if I needed a desktop, this is definately the one I'd buy!
#27
This would cost you about £570 if bought seperately from online retailers. Good deal in my books but for an extra gig of ram £50 pfft dell at it again.
#28
I'm a mac person but this is an excellent deal. Recommended and rated hot. Great for gaming
#29
erm, are these dell computers noisey ?

And isnt it true that everything in a dell is none standard, like the mobo and psu ?

thanks.

I just bought my parents a Vostro 400 and the mobo and P/S seem to be standard size. You are more likely to have problems if you buy the SFF cases rather than the Mini or Midi tower systems.

It’s fairly quiet at idle but once you load the CPU the noise jumps a lot so it’s not quiet.

comes to 626.25 for me, added the keyboard, no raid rubbish, no monitor - doesn't seem to be an option not to have windows.....

and to those of you who want a games machine - this is total overkill, quad core will not do anything for your blooming fps, although the 8800 gfx card is about the best there is.

if it was 500-odd i'd be tempted for a virtualisation server, my 3ghz p4ht with 3gb is looking pretty pedestrian in comparison.

actually how can this be a viiv processor - the 6600 is 65nm not 45nm of the viiv's, plus 8mb cache not 12mb, 1066fsb not 1333....

It's a good deal, but I'm really surprised that XPS machines haven't started coming with 10,000RPM disks. The disk is the slowest thing on any PC, so you'd have thought for uber-gaming machines, they'd have become standard.

Oh dear, another one who can't follow simple instructions!

This price of £510 is actually pretty damn close to what you would expect to pay by building your own system with the same specs. I didnt look too much but my guess is I could build the same system for about the £470-490 mark, but with this you dont have the hassle of building it yourself, plus you get Dell's support too - gotta be worth a couple of bob even if it's not the best support in the world.

But... I'll still be building my own since some of the online stores like Scan offer buy now pay in 9 months. If you are not competent enough to build your own, this is a fantastic spec computer at an unbeatable price. God that last bit makes me sound like a Dell Sales person :-D

Anyone know anything about the motherboard in these?

dump raid for sure, this should be a fast pc its the xps line which are built for it there not the box standard like the vostro`s these have balls....shame its got vista as well, the graphics card is prob more than enough for most gamers but as ever there are faster cards now and more on the way but it is overkill if u want to play games for that u oughta buy a ps3 i guess, pity u couldnt swap the drives for a raptor...lol
if u want summit fast to last u for the next 2 years here is your bargain, of course they loose money and faster stuff comes out but i think most would be happy with this for at least 18-24 months as thats the average time people keep them for today.
