"BareBone PC" would be alot more accurate, since its not a functioning PC without an OS or a monitor albeit items that can be easily obtained elsewhere, but is NOT provided with this bundle

That case I suspect is a nasty and flimsey cheap alloy Chinese thing, I can't recommend Antec P180 enough for it's flexibility and build quality.

Anyone who will be truly utilising that quadcore now or in the future will need to double that ram for sure.

But for a budget OSless and Monitorless PC, it's not bad :)

It isn't a quad core unless you put a quad processor in it. The processor here is a dual one.

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't this just an expensive dual core PC?

Only a dual core cpu.

Correct me if im wrong.

[SIZE=1]I'd go for a cheaper [/SIZE][SIZE=1]E6750[/SIZE][SIZE=1] (£114-115) & switch the graphics card for the cheaper & better-performing [/SIZE][SIZE=1]X1950Pro 512Mb[/SIZE][SIZE=1] (£77-78), saving £45 (for a better case+PSU?). [/SIZE]

[SIZE=1]OK, no quad-core & DX10 but the E6750 isn't too bad for the price, & even the high-end DX10 GPUs aren't exactly doing any good in DX10. [/SIZE]

[SIZE=1]Also agree with [COLOR=black]schizoboy[/COLOR] about the case+PSU choice, & suggest an Antec Sonata III with EarthWatts 500W PSU for £72.[/SIZE]

OK I see you've added the quad processor. Does it not also need a heatsink and fan? BTW thanks for posting this.

I'd stick with dual core unless you use specific programs that use quad, which is few. Basically this post is telling people you can build a decent pc for not much nowadays, we can argue about tweaking it a little bit all day long!

I can fully load all 4 cores of my Q6600 running at 3GHz with a total system memory consumption of less than 400 MB with about 25% of that consumed by the H.264 encoding application.
Not many home users require more than 2GB although I’m not including gamers here as I don’t have experience of that.
I multi-task heavily and tend to use up to about 1.25GB; I’ve never good close enough to my 2GB limit to consider upgrading.

I've got to say it's not a great build. If you are wanting a quad core PC it's best not to skimp on the memory, case etc etc. Personally i'd get an 8800GT in there, a better case, like the Antec P180 mentioned previously. Some Patriot Memory from Aria is good for the price (cheaper where I work, but we're trade only!). If you're only looking to spend £430 then I think a decent quad core build is out of your price range currently.

I'll shout up for the P180 as well its a superb case just need to match it with a good PSU and Antec do those as well :)

If you want to save some money get the E2180 (2ghz) and overclock the hell out of it it will do 3ghz easily!

Edit - Forgot to say the E2180 is around £55inc vat
