Good price for a built system. Capable of plenty of tasks.

Saw this useful post in the reviews (decent mobo and 300W power supply should be able to handle a modest graphics card):

Graphics wise, I would have thought that, on the 300W PSU, you could add up to a GT 240 or HD 5750 card (which require around 50W peak).

Anything more, and you'd need to consider a PSU upgrade.

1. It will work work perfectly well with XP & Win 7 (Inc 64Bit).

2. It has a 300W power supply.

3. It has 2 sticks of RAM 2x2GB both slots used.

4. You can connect a Webcam directly to any of it's 6 USB ports (If you have a cam).

5. The Motherboard is an ASUS P5G41T-M LX2GBGBSI ASUSTeK Computer Inc.

http://support.asus.com/download/dow...Language=en-us

6. The graphics are onboard (built in) No separate card installed.

7. It has 2 spare PCI slots.

8. It has 1 spare PCIEx1 slot

9. It has 1 spare PCIEx16 slot (for graphics card).

10. It comes fully assembled but you do need to provide & install the operating system yourself.

how do you think this would serve as a media centre tucked away in an office, supplying a small home network?

Perhaps a bit power-hungry for such use.

I'd consider something like this: http://tinyurl.com/5w2lqsq

Only has 2 SATA ports, but can add another 2 with something like this: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/lycom-pe-103-x2-port-sataii-3gbps-pci-e-controller-card-with-ncq-pc-mac-linux

What motherboard has it got? Im thinking of getting this for a Windows Server 2008 box and maybe run some VMs on it.... is this PC overkill for such a thing?

Hi all - would this case be able to handle a larger psu upgrade at some point?
#11
Anyone recommend at cheapish graphics card to go in this that's capable of playing old pc games etc Harry Potter and The Sims 2 plus all the expansion packs, it won't be needed for your modern Crysis type of gaming. Also it will be used for P/S CS2 and watching youtube, iPlayer etc.

Thanks in advance.

According to the forum on ebuyer it's a std ATX unit, so should be fine.

Perhaps stretching to the 1GB version, if you've the money... http://www.ebuyer.com/product/227635

It should be able to handle up to a GT 240 (about £80)

I've been considering one of these for awhile - it's still in my basket from the previous hot deal! Don't know why that one was expired:

Great deal, I've got a previous version with a 500gb HDD. It's a Zoostorm branded case, easily upgradable PSU if you decide you need more power for a better graphics card or other components. I've got Windows 7 64-bit running fine and it's a quick machine, perfect for general everyday tasks.

ebuyer tend not to do that, but worth looking out for a free del promo they sometimes do. I ordered mine on their cheapest delivery and it came within 2 days

It really depends on your gaming needs, but I'd spend a bit more and get something newer, perhaps stretch to a new Sandy Bridge CPU if you could.
#26
Switch to a std midi tower you can save £5.

Reduce to 2gb you can save £15 (buy 4 separately and you can save a £1)

Reduce to 500gb hdd you can save £10

Switch to an Amd Athlon II x2 255 (3.1) and Asus M4N68T-M LE V2 saves 6.64

Total £158.53 for a perfectly acceptable PC. Although you'd need to build it yourself, which is easy.

On the base parts price a 1st gen i3 adds about £80 (chip + motherboard)

2nd gen i3 (Sandy bridge) adds about £100 (chip + R2 motherboard without sata fix)

You'll need 300W over the 12V line to run this system with a GTX460 at peak load...you're looking at a quality 500W psu (£50ish), not the cheapest one you can find.

Probably be pretty decent...I've played Crysis at decent resolution/detail/fps on lesser systems than a DC 3.2GHz/GTX460.

how does this compare

[url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.currys.co.uk%2Fgbuk%2Fadvent-se2104-07677863-pdt.html]
http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/advent-se2104-07677863-pdt.html[/url]


For the advent:

Pros:
- comes with Windows 7 Installed
Cons:
- slightly slower speed
- only 2GB memory
- uses DDR2 memory, which is more expensive and a bit slower
- comes with GMA3100 graphics (rather than the slightly better GMA4500 graphics)

Overall, I'd say the eBuyer one is better value. They would come to about the same price once:
- Windows 7 has been added to the cost of the Ebuyer machine
- An extra 2GB RAM has been added to the cost of the Advent machine

I could build this in about 20mins.

Technically all the parts have 12months warranty, but the £36 gets you the diagnostics, guess it depends if you're capable of doing it yourself or not.

Ok, how about this
http://www.meshcomputers.com/Default.aspx?PAGE=PRODUCTVIEWPAGE&USG=PRODUCT&ENT=PRODUCT&KEY=792936

you can customize it to have a 1TB hard drive for £317 (not sure about delivery) and it has 3yrs warranty insead of 1yr

For an extra £17, 2yrs extra warranty seems worth it?

Yes, but it includes Win 7 (worth about £70).

With this one you would have to buy Win 7, so works about about the same, but with 3yrs warranty instead of 1yr

What would you recommend for a basic pc for a business client? I was going to go for this and get a monitor but i dont think i can risk its reliability and might have to go Dell.

But the price just for a basic one there is quite a lot higher, any ideas?
