Yeah, the Tesco near me has some of these machines too. no as much ram as this though, 2Gb iirc, although a copy of vista will set you back £50+ whereas 2GB ram can be picked up for around £15-£20

Warm at £220.
Hot at £200.

Don't forget the OS though, unless you're going to be installing Linux on it

Will work best with ubuntu.

You can build it yourself at this price. Not great if you want to build the exact same system as this, but well worth doing if you fancy dropping an extra £30 on it to get a 1TB harddrive and an extra tenner for a faster CPU, plus a couple of quid more for a decent graphics card.
#11
Perfect for a casual gamer, someone who needs a PC for office and web surfing. Definitely not something for anyone serious about the latest gaming.

By the time you add a decent graphics card and OS, you'd be better looking at a custom built machine from one of the gaming PC suppliers for about the same total investment. This PC would suit my Dad perfectly :)
#12
Bad luck, it was 199.99 last night. They had a lot of demand last time so they could increase their profits this time! The only reason i knew about it was that i had originally bought the item as part of the previous offer but the item was faulty and they could not offer a replacement as they had sold out. They had informed me when the product came back in stock.

Are all of the parts of Ebuyer for this?

Would like a good machine for Photoshop think this should do the trick?

That's an interesting variation on the "I can build it better cheaper" post!

Let's see - have I got this right?..... So you can build it better cheaper, but you can't although if you spend more you can?

Hmm :?

So far not ONE of these build it yourself posts has added up, I don't suppose this one will either, but hey, words are cheap let's see the figures, you can't get away with a post like that unchecked!

Well a "good" machine, I wouldn't call it, the word "adequate" is more the description I would use! It's a 200 quid basic one, but it should perform OK though.
A friend has a Dell with this processor, and it does most things OK.
#16
Good price for a base pc.
#17
currently have core 2 duo 6320 @ 1.86ghz in my work pc which im currently using which is fine for me. I take it this is a newer faster processor than this?

If you even need to ask that I'm going to assume you are not working on huge file sizes and pro end stuff which would require anymore power. So I would say Yes, this will meet your needs perfectly. Assuming you use it with a good quality monitor.

I would say your 6320 is better than this and probably has better overclocking potential....not that you need it for WORK!!....the CPU on this PC is a budget model so no great shakes.

I would assume that ANY new PC with 2Gb RAM+ would be fine for you. Up to 2weeks ago I had an old Althon 2800 system with 1Gb RAM (slow RAM too!!) and it ran Pshop OK, this system would be a hundred times better, hope that helps :thumbsup:

Hell, I used to run photoshop on a 400PII with 512mb ram, I could make a cup of tea while waiting for some effects, but otherwise it ran OK. Any modern pc will have no trouble at all, and this one has 4GB.

The one i have now runs it fine at the moment but would like it pretty quick and not have to go get a cup of whilst waiting for it to catch up.

Rubbish? Well, suit yourself. My point in that and in this thread is that if you're buying this as a base system to upgrade, there's not really much point, since you're not saving anything by buying this gear as a bundle, so if you've got the skillz, you might as well spend a little extra and get yourself the good parts in the first place.

eBuyer or BT Shop. BTShop tends to be a little cheaper.

But, yeah - that machine would be fine for Photoshop. I think the reputation Photoshop's got of being a serious resource hog is something it's picked up from years ago. Admittedly, my systems are always pretty good, but I've been using PS for four or five years and have never had any performance problems with it, except possibly that it took a few seconds to open a RAW image file. I guess, unless you're doing seriously heavy work with it (that is, 40MB pro-quality photos, like the ones you get from £1000+ digital SLRs), you're not going to have a problem.

All he was asking was for you to break it down how you built a system for that price and that when previously asked you have not done so, why not break it down for him and maybe he will take his comment back

FYI, the new version of Photoshop, CS4, requires at least 2gb memory.

Supposedly, it won't allow you to install itself if it detects less than 2gb.

Based on usual recommendations, I wouldn't bother installing it on something that had less than 3gb. New version is clearly a resource hog.

No-one had asked by the last time I looked at the thread, so I didn't really see much point justifying the work of uploading the screenie of the testbasket. To be honest, I can't really be bothered going to any work for his benefit anyway, but you can check it out for yourself if you like, and you'll see that I'm right. I'm not just making stuff up here or estimating, I was semi-curious about buying the system when it first came up because I needed a reasonably cheap system of that sort of spec, and hoped that it might be on the right side of value against a self-build, like the Dells usually are. Not to be, though.

Jesus, 2GB?! I'm going to have to check this out now. I don't understand how it could take so much up. Unless, is it a deliberate thing to try and freeze out home user pirates, and force them onto Elements?
#31
Not a bad price, but not a great one either if you ask me. Its ok if you don't need a monitor and are planning on installing Linux or can get your hands on a cheap copy of Vista/XP.

£220 for a pc with no monitor and no O/S?

You can get a decent spec Dell Vostro for about £460 with 4gb, E7300 Dual Core (2.66ghz), a 256mb Radeon HD 3450 Graphics card, 500gb HDD, 20" Ultrasharp Widescreen monitor and Windows Vista Business (I think Dell will also install Windows XP Professional along with Vista for just £10 extra).

I have an acer T180 with a 3400 amd 64 processor. I have just installed 4 gb ram thinking it would make it faster, but aint really done a lot :x

Would I be better off sending the ram back (64 quid) and putting it towards this ?
How much better if at all, is this to mine ?

Sorry but getting on a bit now and all this tech stuff...................... well...........:oops:

( I use my pc mostly for ripping burning back ups of my dvd collection)
Dont ya just hate kids jammy fingers !!
#33
How do you rate this Pc? I've considered building one but it seems components are going up by the day, also i've heard the Q6600 has good overclocking potential but isn't there a problem with Dells bios

Maybe you don't really require a "faster" PC although ripping DVDs does speed up with a decent spec system.....If you can get the £64 refunded for the ram then do so...you can get 4gb of DDR2 far cheaper if you shop around.

I have a Q6600 overclocked to 3ghz and all is very stable and cool using a £10 air cooling.

Well unless Dell have changed then the BIOS does prevent any overclocking so if that's what you really want then I guess the Dell should be avoided......unless you already have a decent graphics card then you may wish to consider this

Cheers but the Dells expired now unfortunately.
Not to go off topic but what's your opinion on the current PC market? It just seems to me components have risen rapidly, I heard the Q6600 could be gotten for just over £100 not long ago and now you're looking at £155.

I bought mine..a retail with stock cooler..for £145.....but that offer has ended. I think it's a case of more expensive imports with the falling value of sterling. Of course the path to take if you want the best performance is i7....prices are high at present but as with all new technology it will come down in price if you are patient.....just wish I was !!! LOL

Not sure how capable you are with self build but that is the option I prefer....purchase most of my kit from Scan as I qualify for free delivery...that option was through AV forums some years ago so not sure if there's any way to get it now.

If I had a pound for every unjustified comment like his, I would not be needing bargains from this site or anywhere else! Some people say things the rest of us are just expected to take in, despite being no truth in it at all.

It's the problem with it not being in stock for collection or delivery that you might find the hardest bit to get over! :-(

I thought it looked a bit good to be true!
I have an earlier version of this PC, (it was less HD space and 2Gb of ram then and have never had the urge to overclock it or any other machine since being highly unimpressed by overclocking a machine years ago!

Mine has 4Gb ram now, and an extra HD too, but even with integrated graphics, I have never had the slightest complaint about it! My other machine a Vostro with the same processor has 3Gb ram and a dedicated graphics card, but that is because t gets used for 3D work by my partner.
