Id say this is a better bet for £10 less:

http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/prods/barebones/Novatech/BB-I3534G.html

While not a quad core its a touch better in most benchmarks and is a newer socket.

BE ADVISED that these psus have NO pci express power cables for your graphics cards

my friend found out the hard way!

You just need to buy a socket adaptor to convert one of the regular power cables into a PCI Express plug.
#9
Looking for a barebones, and thought about this one - but a wee bit short of USB ports if you use a USB & keyboard, and other permanently attached devices like scanners, printers, etc? And only 2 PCI slots, so say then only down to one if you add a USB 4 port card ....I'd use the front USB's for the usual pendrives,etc.

Any other good deals available?
#10
The link above by Axeboy seems better. Also has surround sound on board and more usb ports. i3 processors are pretty powerful.

i would rather just build from scratch


I agree.

Also, isn't this is one of the worst (Intel) Quad Core CPU's?

Agreed. Would probably prompt for the i3.
That being said I have a 2.4GHz Quad Core now, which has wiped the floor with every game I've ever tried on it. (Crysis, COD ect.. ).

Both a decent value for money. But would prefer to buy / build from scratch also.

..... if you replace the motherboard, and the psu.
#14
for the price range, personally i'd go phenom x2 and try to unlock. i got a triple core out of it

Worst is probably not the correct term. The Q8300 has 4MB L2 cache where as the older Q6600 has 8MB L2 cache. The Q8300 is clocked 100MHz higher than the Q6600. Personally I would go for the LGA1156 socket system with the i3. If I only had a choice between those two systems.

Any idea how quiet this baby is?

If you're that worried about noise, you'd possibly want to change the CPU fan and the PSU. A graphics card fan is likely to make more noise if you were to add a graphics card. I don't find the standard Intel fan to be that noisy. If I was to add additional fans I'd go with Akasa Amber 120mm as they're quiet and ultra reliable.

If this system was to be too loud for your needs then the PSU is likely to have the noisiest fan.

Shame it's not an ASUS motherboard, should be able to overclock CPU to 3.50Ghz, memory to 1800Mhz...
#19
Looks very nice.
So impressed with Novatech, bought my AMD 1090t set up there - Antec case (this case looks VERY nice, though) quite impressed with Novatech

Yes, thats an even better deal OK
banned#21
I believe that the i3 530 is less powerful than this q8300 quad core.
suspended#22
crap motherboard connections, no DVI, HDMI, Esata, optical audio, only a small number of ports. Your best off buying your own parts and building your own.
#23
doesnt have a HDD..

The PSU comes with the case, these wont support any modern (not even last generation) graphics cards. These have terrible energy efficiency.

Buy this if you just want a basic home/ office pc....

I built this same config system for a friend for around £250 including delivery....but with current prices this (without HDD) works out around £260..which is decent.

Voted hot for current prices..

Yes and I'm sure by buying a pile of bicks and a few windows we could all build a new house cheaper than getting one from the estate agents.

Can we stop having these kinds of posts in EVERY pc thread? I like many others don't feel comfortable building a pc from scratch. Thats why there is a market for products like this.

Why?

In some multi core use the Q8300 will be better, but in general the i3 530 is a better performer from checking out various benchmarks. Also, the 530 has the GPU on the chip too which is an added bonus to being cheaper and newer technology (say to upgrade later to a i5 or i7 later)


edit: I should say I have a Q8200 at the moment and runs most things fine, but i still stand by the i3 being the better bargain

I bought this around xmas last year, and just ordered a HDD with it.

No DVI/HDMI is surely utterly irrelevant, as you need to add a video card, which is where those ports would come from.

I'm using a 2 year old v card and running brand new games just fine.
#28
I was looking at the barebones systems at novatech the other day as I'm not sure I could build one from scratch, what else would I need for this? A hdd? Operating system?

I don't really want it for gaming, but for the likes of ableton, Photoshop, video processing

Would this do the job?

You gonna need : HD (1T £40), Graphic card ( good one £120) , one sata data cable (£1), OS, and Optic drive (£14) , all rest after connect works very fast

I agree - but somehow this deal has still reached over 400 degrees :|
