Plus £18.60 delivery.


Is it personally delivered on a Silk cushion!!!

Any reason people are voting cold?
If there are better deals around feel free to post and prove them!

When you leave delivery costs off a deal you tend to get a few extra cold votes...

(Not voting either way myself as I'm not hot on desktop prices).

About £265 of parts here, so a good price assembled I suppose.

What drives me mad about computers nowadays is that the producers of the processors refuse to give us a straightforward description of the number of cores / threads or the processor speeds. Telling me that it is a T5600PQRB51J doesn't mean anything. What's wrong with something Like Pentium Ultra 3 x 3.2GHz, I ask you?:(

It's a bit misleading that the image has an Nvidia Geforce logo when it has Intel onboard graphics. I'd go as far as to say that it's false advertising. Poor company, ridiculous delivery costs...lukewarm at best

Hmmm, it's Ocuk? God help you if it goes faulty and you need to send it back.

I know what you mean...it isn't hard to give a detailed list of specs for each cpu, is it?

oh...

It says i3 540 all the way through the ad. Listing speeds isn't especially useful these days.

For example the new i3 sandy cores (numbers start 2xxx) are a lot faster than the old ones, even though the clock speeds are similar.
#10
I know that it thrusts it at you, but to any normal person buying a PC, it tells you nothing. 'i3 540'? What you say? For all I know, it could be a single processor, running at 1GHz.:p

I'm not sure whether you're being sarcy or not, but that list doesn't help somebody shopping for a PC. Purchasing a PC online, somebody would be forced to do further research, instead of just being informed, and it would be zero help to a person purchasing in-store...

Avoid Overcockers. Cold, if its faulty then you are in for a stressful time trying to return.
#12
@Quietus but what would you suggest? Any oversimplified number would be misleading.

If people want the best for their money they need to do a bit of research, if they can't be bothered then they've made that choice.

It's very easy to find reviews of PC components, with charts comparing performance in common applications.

Can anyone tell me if this is wotrth burying form this company as it seems like a good deal
#14
Can someone please let me know if its worth buying from this company as this appears to be a decent offer.
Thanks

Google +"ocuk" +"morons" and if after reading some of the results you still buy from them then you deserve all you get.

A return to earlier styles, with speeds actually listed would be the best option, because...

While this sort of thing is all very good for anybody familiar with a PC, even to a fairly low level, for any new buyer, they could easily see at a glance that a dual core @ 3.0GHz would be a better option than a dual core @ 2.2GHz.

Of course, the problem is exacerbated by the plethora of different processors available. I demand that each company only make one each.:p
