The same - but I think that you will find that this is £502 - £467 = £35 cheaper & that deal was very hot. This deal has a totally different DELL reference. Isn't getting it cheaper what this forum is about?
#4
I would add the upgrade to 3Gb RAM which is £14.90 + VAT (£17.50). Takes the stress out of fitting it for no financial benefit.

I have no idea which of the keyboard options are interesting but the one in the deal actually reduces the price!

The MX3200 wireless mouse/keyboard looks like a good deal at £8 + VAT (£9.40) extra

I used quidco with Dell Business yesterday and it has tracked. :thumbsup:

i dont think Quidco works.

I have tried this before and nothing. Also likely they will cancel the order if your not a business

hope this helps

Its a great machine though playing crysis on high settings with aa. Runs brilliant !

No they won't. You can order for it to be used at a home..

BTW welcome to HUKD ;-)

Typical, just got deivered the one on here last week,
#12
Its a very good machines for the money in my opinion. You cant build one with this spec yourself for the price certainly not with vista.

I would also add in the logitech wireless desktop for £11 if they still have it on offer. Its a decent keyboard and mouse well worth £11....

Same old memory upgradability problem if this is 32bit Vista. Go for a company that has the common sense to give you the 64 bit option.

What ********. There's such poor 64-bit support out there for even bleeding edge hardware, nevermind the lack of native 64-bit applications and the overhead of running 32-bit apps in a 64-bit environment (WoW), that for a consumer and most businesses 32-bit makes sense!

I do wish people would look things up before spouting such ****.
#19
Dont forget you cant change your mind and send it back under DSR as your buying from the Business side of Dell.
On another note I bought one from the deal last week and it is a good machine. My only gripe is how loud the HDD was and the fans. I swapped the HDD with my old WD one and it is alot quieter, the original HDD was a Seagate 7100.10.
Talking of the fans does anyone know where I can get replacement fans that have the same mobo connector??
#20
i've tried to order from dell business before for home use and all they did was cancel my order and gave me a link to order from for a home user.

I could get the same spec machine but for £30 odd quid dearer.
#21
Strange mine is nearly silent. My last p.c made a right racket. The hd is about the only thing I can hear....

I agree with the 64 bit coments. It just makes it difficult to get the sofware I actually want to use run on the p.c.....I dont like vista as it is but at least I have got everything I want running pretty much....

The main thing is this p.c runs crysis very nicely !
#22
I had one from the outlet with two 500gb drives in it , it was very noisy from hard drive noise and so were the fans, not sure if its because it was from the outlet and thats why it was returned from the previous customer i also sent it back for a refund

This or one from dell outlet with quad core and 3gb of ram for £516? Decisons decisons



I got myself a quad core, 3gb ram, 500gb hd and an 8800gt from the outlet the other day. Came to £470 after I used the £55 off + free delivery option at the checkout stage.
[mod]#24
Nice find with the 8800GT, I must have been asleep there and missed it ;-)

Voted hot.

Yes you can use quidco via small business but dont put the price in the deal to include quidco as its never a given.
When ordering from SB always put your own name, dont make up a business one. Also be sure to put "home" when it asks where its to be used.

i'm sorry but isn't DSR for consumers?? If your buying from a business to business website then DSR can not truely exist...

This has come up many times before, Dell will sell to "home" customers via the SB site and according to an email I have from Dell your consumer rights are intact when doing so, BUT not all dell agents seem to sing from the same hymn book, so its best that you only buy what you really want from SB, not just so you can play for a few days and return it under DSR.

Oh and if you add the Logitech™ Cordless Desktop™ MX®3200 (incl Mouse) an upmarket version of the EX110 it ups the price by just £9

#31
I can't see the possible non return policy problem.

If the machine is faulty you have the same rights regardless of where you purchased it from & I really don't think it is fair practice to order something on the off chance that you might fancy it when you get it. If the HD is very noisy compared to other similar drives - & it is afer all an industry standard product - then just ask for it be changed as unsatisfactory under warranty.

And when you want more menory? Please enlighten me on how you would upgrade the memory on this system..


Well lets state some facts first.

This is a desktop PC , not a server.

Other than a handful of games, very few apps support mapping more than 32-bit's worth of memory - so that limits you to... 2gb per process. I have yet to see a consumer app to actively support AWE PAE mode AT ALL.

This is more confined to SQL Server etc, rather than consumer and normal business applications.

On top of that, there is actually PAE (horrid 36-bit memory addressing hack) built into modern systems and Windows since Server 2000 and in Vista itself, and the latest service pack of Vista (SP1) will detect and map all the memory not a problem. So all your apps can live in use all the resident memory till they hit the 32-bit process limit.

However, as mentioned before hardly anyone implements AWE PAE in the first place.

Also, you only have to google to see how bad the x64 support is for modern hardware - some companies like NVIDIA have only just got stable(ish) Vista WDDM drivers out the door for the x86-32 environment!

64-bit O/S really has little place for a large majority, and they certainly dont need it anymore to make use of 4GB+ these days.

I was gonna build this , look 530 pounds and its not even built with an OS, but has more memory. The real advantage here is that I can overclock each core to 3 ghz and beyond.

You cant overclock dell. Remember Quad core can be slow for older games.

I want the system for VSTi and audio work.

1) Theres no need to be rude.

Theres a number of games I play that use over 2Gb. Valid statement from pot_belly.

I am not sure whether you think that this is a good deal or not but:

Firstly you are right that a 2.4Ghz quad core can be slow for the newest games but this isn't a quad core this is a 2 core E8400 which works at the 3Ghz that you would like to overclock your Q6600 to.

Secondly your machine looks very odd. It does not have the 8800GT graphics card that the machine here has (it has a cheaper 9600GT) & as far as I can see it does not have a power supply at all - if one is included in an £18 case I wouldn't dare use it - especially with an overclocked quad core. It also does not apparantly have an operating system which is £60 approximately, Sort of finally your incomplete list of bits costs over £60 (£90 if quidco works) more than this complete & built machine. Your machine will end up costing nearly £200 more than this one when you have purchased the missing bits!

Finally finally a lot of people really don't want to - or can't - build their own machine & value the 12 month on site warranty .

I can look beyond the end of my nose to where nothing computer related that you buy today will hack it. 12 months from now virtually everything in this machine will be obsolete. Intel will have moved onto Nahalem and DDR3, Vista will be being replaced by Windows 7 & I am sure graphics will have at least double the capacity etc etc etc. The trouble is that this is always the sitution with computers. As I said at the beginning I would upgrade this to 3Gb memory, enjoy life & run pretty well everyrthing that will be released in the next 12 months at max.

I also know that you can build a better & faster machine but you can't for this price and not with an on site 12 month guarantee.

I too would ideally choose Vista64 & 4Gb but it is not a deal killer for me.

I agree, yeah the 8800 GT is the same price I have to change it. Your right of course. Plus Quidco and the OS.

Plus the biggest thing is that when I buy all the bits, what happens if the mobo is not working or the cpu or meemory, how do I eliminate a fault without other components ? Or how do get a replacement fast without hassle ?

12 months warrenty is worth a lot and i'm fed up of usin hacks OS.
