Great price, £183 how can you go wrong! Very good spec and price :thumbsup: for a midrange machine.
#2
Does it say anywhere what Graphics are on board?
#3
Impressive price. I think they give Quidco cashback as well, which might pay for the shipping.

This item is not available in the store. Pretty good deal though even with delivery, stick in an 8600gt and you'd have a system capable of playing most games for under £250

Hottttttttt

Very hot. That's Mum & Dad's present sorted!
#8
Anyone knows about ATI Radeon Xpress 1150 Pro chipset?

Only saw it in laptops, a little confused here...
#9
X1150 is integrated chipset, roughly equivalent to an ATI X300 video chip/ Radeon 9250 for anyone who can remember them. Not bad but don't expect to play Crysis on this one... it won't even load. It is weird, but a new video card could cost you more than the PC itself ;-)

Thanks!

still a hot offer for non-game players.

you'd never guess these were owned by the same parent company

Can anyone confirm that this PC has a PCIe-x16 port. Some low-spec machines from Dell have omitted this important feature and not mentioned it.

Very good deal though!

If you're going to get this PC delivered it's cheaper to get it from microwarehouse for the same price and with 5% Quidco cashback available.

The Quidco cashback for PCWorld is only for delivered items and comes in at 2.5%
#16
This is insanely cheap!

how much electricity do these use? excluding monitor

can someone please provide a direct link to this deal, I cant find it.

Hi guys, about to go for this I think. Bit of advice please if I may?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Aspire-T180-G7300SE-Keybaord-Premium/dp/B000SYIKYG/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1196934289&sr=1-2

I was going to get this ^ but AFAICS it's basically the same thing (not bothered about the slightly smaller hdd or lack of keyboard mouse etc) Should I be bothered about lack of the graphics card (not that I think the geforce is anything to write home about and I think it's onboard anyway) or the lack of vista premium (probably going to put xp on anyway!)? I guess for the saving I could get myself a decent gfx card.

Click go to deal on the first post!

I'm confused by the seller's site. Is there an error here? The PC is headlined as model DC5700 but all the details relate to DX2250 GQ987ES (this is the model number that qualified for the £50 discount). It seems to me that you may get a DC5700 of unknown spec and no £50 discount from HP.

Probably the same as any other computer (ie I think about 50p per day assuming on 24/7) I may be completely out with that figure if someone could correct me? Depends on how much usage etc.
#23
Has anyone seen the link???? the price with vat is 233.83 and you have to have a business to order in PCWB, its not like the normal store

Don't go for this one but the HP Compaq as it has 2gig of ram, a better processor etc for less money. Also, you can add a graphics card later on as some Nvidia 8600's graphics cards are going for £50+.

Good point, although this would suggest to me that you'll get the £50:

"Great Savings! £50 MORE Cash Back on this product from 1st December to 31st December. Product Number: GQ987ES"


And they can't really send you something other than what they've advertised!

233.83 - £50 cashback = £183.83

Worth a try tho isn't it? I work as a self employed trader so would hope to be able to get it, surely everyone can put a business name down?

How many HDD bays has this puppy got? Could turn this into a nice lil' NAS...

So you're saying don't get the amazon one, get the pcw one instead?

They're both 2gigs of ram and both the same processor aren't they?
#29
I think anyone can buy from PCW Business. The same offer is on the Microwarehouse and Macwarehouse sites they operate as well. Check that you are getting the right machine - these people are not the brightest...
#30
Got 8/10 on a review, only thing they didn't like was the software bundle but I don't think most people are interested in that.

Assuming I put a decent gfx card in (~£100) then this should be good for the latest games shouldn't it? I don't want AMAZING performance but good enough to mess about on./
#31
My current PC is a A64 3800+ (single core), 2GB of RAM and an old ATI 800XL card. Struggles on games like Supreme Commander, however the Orange Box games, TF2 in particular run great on my machine.

So I'd imagine this PC will do fine, provided you don't expect the games to run on high graphic settings/resolutions.

Infact, i'm very tempted by this. Hell maybe 2, replace my mum's old AMD 1700XP PC ;-)

Is that true? what's the difference between bussiness and individual offer? What document needs to provide?

You'll need to make sure it's enough room for the longer 8000 series Nvidia cards, if that's what you plan to drop in.
#35
Last time i was there, they requested info such as vat numbers and all sorts of weird rubbish... so i duno i tried to say i wasnt vat registered, but they still insisted :S strange!

Not bothered about which card, as long as I can get one in there for playing fairly new games at decent speeds then that's cool. I'll be able to get a ~£100 card in there won't I?

Yeah I recon, look at the 7000 series, still good cards, don't go for OC (Over CLocked) cards you pay more and you can OC them yourself anyway!

I have a 7950GT for £150, same spec as a 7950GTX @ £300 but lower clock speeds, OC'ed it and now it's a GTX ! :p

I play Bioshock, COD4 and GOW all on full chat ! But don't expect to play Crysis on anything less than 'Medium' but still looks good
#39
how easy is it to install windows xppro instead of vista which is already loaded? with xppro do i have to install sata drivers for the hd or are they already on the motherboard?
#40
I've ordered this from the PC World business site and they didn't ask for any company details.

Got my order acknowledgement through also.

I'm also going to format it and put XP on it as Vista is rubbish.
