I also got one of these in december, cracking pc for the price, upgraded the graphics card to an asus eah2600pro and now watching x264 films via hdmi on my 50" plasma.

Its a good deal. Can anyone out there tell me which graphics card the PC comes with ?

It would do it but you really want something with a bit more grunt for rendering HD. Ideally, set your sights on a quad core system which will chomp it's way through any rendering much quicker and allow you to work on other projects at the same time. Likewise for editing HD you really want seperate physical hard drives (one for the operating system/programmes) and one for the footage. Dell have some good quad core deals on at the mo which would be more up your street.

edit :- direct link does'nt go to deal but i found it anyway :- http://www.pcwb.com/catalogue/item/HPPC1194
#18
but it doesnt have an hdmi port does it also would nvidia G8400 enable it to play many games , not latest obviously
#19
put a ati hd2400xt in this and it plays all hd , h264 just fine , card £50.

It is a very good system for the price, and will chomp through video editing rather well. I edit videos using a X2-3800 without problems, so this x2-5000 should be fine.
Of course a quad-core will be much nicer, and quicker at editing, but unless you are doing a lot of editing it is probably not worth it.

For sure. Cannot go wrong at this price.
#22
:thinking:Gaming Card
Would the existing card be o.k. for my 9 year old son to play the Sims, Flight Simulator etc or would I need a new card?
Thanks
#23
looks good, but what would the processor (roughly) equate to in intel world?
#24
TY all for your replies. It does look great for the price :thumbsup:
#25
Voted Hot. great price, shame i just bought a similar spec one off Amazon for £420 inc monitor tho, but still, the one with monitor on here is £389 - very good find :thumbsup:
#26
just some warning if ordering. phone pcwb and ask them to email you the invoice as they dont send it with the goods as the deadluine for claiming is fast approaching.
Also i always use the £5 delivery for 2-3 dsays delivery instead of £10 for next day because i always recieve it next day anyway.
#27
This looks a great deal (voted hot) but what puts me off is the 2GB of memory, which seems to be the maximum, unless anyone knows differently?
#28
do i have to be a business customer to purchase this?
#29
Hi guys i do alot of work on Adobe, Cad and 3d programs how would this stack up?

also and recomends for a graphics card for this use? also pluging into tv?

Thanks

;-)
#30
I'm watching x264 (mkv) wmv using the integrated graphics on a 50" samsung plasma.
No skipping, or hesitation at all.

Old games work on the integrated card, but I havent bothered challenging it with anything more strenuos than HD video.

You might be able to edit, but full screen playback/review is an issue. I ended up upgrading the graphics card and the PSU.
Try one of the ATI HD cards, 2600 PRO or XT and an Antec EarthWatts 380W PSU.
With cashback still works out approx £250 for the system.

Wouldn't bother if I were you, it's no where near the spec of the PCWB one.

I really hope you haven't gone for this one. It's a really poor version (horrible processor, only 512Mb memory, 80Gb hard drive, etc.) of the same HP Dx 2250 model.

A few questions. I want to replace my old gaming machine (athlon 2200+ with 2gb memory and 256mb graphics , play mostly Call Of duty UO). Is this any good or is there a better deal from dell?? I know the on board graphis card needs replacing with a PCI-E card (lots of deals on here) but what about the PSU is it easy to change will the rest of the pc be ok if upgrading the PSU. Other question is i have XP pro and love it. What will Vista home be like??

Com on you tech heads help me out!!! :thumbsup:
#36
SBurley ty for the advice. I have changed memory and gpx cards on puters before,is it just as easy to change PSU? Is there anything particular that I need to do? Thanks in advance :)

I put a Zotac 8800GT graphics card and a 750 watt psu in mine. Took 10 mins to fit. See my post on the original thread for this deal for details as you need another SATA power connector and a longer SATA lead if your getting a long graphics card.

Plays all the following fine on Vista on Max Setting (apart from Crysis obviously which runs like a pig and is **** anyway!)

Call of Duty 4
UT3
Company of Heroes
Stalker

etc etc..

It was easier than I thought. Just screw out old one and screw in new, only four cables to reconnect, though the new PSU has a mass more (cables) than the one I took out, so it looks daunting, but you can tie them out the way and ignore. Mine didn't work first try, but only because I hadn't pushed the main connector back on to the motherboard hard enough.
I've recommended a ATI HD 2600 card as I first got a 2400XT sonic and it still wasn't quite up to the job with my Sanyo HD1000 MP4 files (though these are tricksy files, being a Sanyo variation on H264). The HD 2600 XT was a much bigger jump in performance, for not much more outlay.

Just checked quidco. PC World Business offers 5% back through quidco as well. That's another £11.50 off or so. That and the cashback puts it down to just over £170.:-D

I've been editing video for many years now. Back in August, I got some HD cameras and have been editing on a 2500+ AMD machine from 2003! It's got no problem chomping through the video on that, so this will be fine. No worries.
