Nice.

What's so particularly "Gaming" about it?
Anyway, I thought serious gamers went for high-end Dual core machines, not Quad core?

It seems the right sort of price for a machine of this specification, give or take a few quid here and there - there's a few of them about like in this deal: http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=442478 and the one I quoted there: http://www.dmxdimension.com/recommend/D004504

The hd 4350 in the dell is no where near the hd 4850 so would probly need another £80-£100 spending on it,

no hdmi :(

the HD 4850 should work with HDMI with an adaptor.

I'd imagine the DVI port is HDCP compatible so the only thing you're missing is the convenience of having audio and video in one cable.

Competitive gamers who turn all the graphical settings down to get more FPS will often go for dual-core to eek out that extra couple of FPS. For everyone else, including serious gamers a quad-core is a better idea as it's more flexible and future proof and makes no difference at the settings most of us play at in most games.

This is a gaming PC because it's got a powerful graphics card - the 4850 is probably ten times as fast as the 4350.

Much as I thought...

Agreed the graphics is definitely not as swish - I had lumped the two together in my mind, not being a gamer

I had thought the two were in the same "series" but clearly not. I not so "up" on Gaming machines, let along cards, so was putting them in the same range!

Yeah, you really have to read reviews when it comes to graphics cards to know what the options are, the model numbers are pretty misleading.

The quickest way to check is to just compare the price of the cards, a 4350 is a £30 card while the 4850 will cost you closer to £80 - although even that could fool you into thinking the 4850 might not be that much faster.

I have a PC from these guys. In the 3 years I have had the PC it has been sent back twice due to it shutting down whilst in use.

Their customer service is the WORST I have come across. They tried to blame me saying the fan in the computer was dirty and that it was my responsibility to keep the internals clean. But the warranty would be invalid if I opened up the PC.

They tried to charge me for the repair. They went so far as to say to get my PC back I would have to pay something!!

DONT buy a MESH PC :x
#11
avoid mesh , look at the complaints from mesh costumers. voted cold .
#12
I've had 2 PC's from Mesh. Without a doubt the most unreliable PC's I've ever seen (I've been a desktop H/W engineer for 8 and a half years, so I've seen a few PC's...).

Wouldn't use one if it was given to me for free.
#13
I would usually avoid Mesh due to their poor customer service reputation. However, this is via eBuyer. So in the eyes of the law you only have to deal with the retailer (Sale of Goods Act). If it fails then its up to eBuyer to arrange replacement/repair, the customer does not have to deal with Mesh.

If 500GB is enough space (or you want to upgrade yourself) this is probably a better overall buy: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/167290

My first post - just wanted to say that - unlike other posters above, I've had 4 Mesh computers over 10 years and have never had a problem (at least not one I couldn't fix myself without any great technical knowledge) with any of them. Generally they've been well built and very good value. Then again, not having had a problem I obviously haven't had to test out their customer service.
#15
Have to agree with most people on here, when stating that mesh have an atrocious customer service. Paid nearly £1700 for my pc, went wrong all the time, mesh, were fantastic, until they get your money. Then they didn't want to know! That said, not sure how you stand buying a mesh from Ebuyer??
#16
The PC seem OK, Mesh are one of the worst companies I've ever dealt with. Utter ********s and the PC arrived broken, which was what started all the problems.

Hopefully you can deal with Ebuyer instead.
#17
avoid.
#18
would have liked a 1024mb gfx card
#19
Good to see Mesh getting the kicking they deserve in this deal thread. The last Mesh deal thread contained so much clueless ("It's a brand name, therefore it must be good!") pro-Mesh talk that I actually had to hunt down and shoot three of the people from it. I don't get why anyone would have any faith in a company whose tech support page is entitled "Untitled Document".

Does anyone know where ebuyer stand on the whole free upgrade to Windows 7 situation? Im really interested in that Acer but don't want to be out of date within months

For general pc use yes for gaming no graphics card is rebrand of 9500gt which is ok for general stuff (surfing,office work) but not up to modern games. The processor is gen 1 phenom which wasn't great but again for general stuff will do everything you need it to

I'm interested to know how were their PC's so unreliable when all of the stuff they put in them are branded components? Was it just the configuration and compatibility, or did they used damaged parts?
#26
Why are Ebuyer selling desktop PCs with Windows Vista? No one wants that crap now and it's stupid how they're promoting Windows 7 at their front page, but won't include it with the desktops? They'll get more sales that way.
#27
if you want a gaming PC , then i would suggest you build your own from scratch, its part of the fun getting it all to work!
#28
I've seen a couple of people bad mouthing Mesh on here. We've had a family PC from Mesh in the house since buying it in about 2005 I'd say. It has not broken down once - got it in a good package price at the time, 512mb RAM and something like 2.8GHZ I think.

By now it is slow at starting up, and makes a bit of noise due to all the parts taking a thrashing (I think its just the hard drive making a noise). The startup problems may be able to be fixed by more clean up and streamlining settings, but my family don't want me messing around doing that.

Mesh seem to make a good quality product, however as I have had no problems I (/ my family) have not dealt with any customer service, therefore this is only one persons past experience with the company, not including their aftersales service.

Agreed, and you can build a better gaming rig than this for around the same or less money.

In one of the PC's (£899), I had a PSU die (after 1 week of use), a HDD become so noisy it had to be replaced, and a graphics card get so hot the plastic pins holding the heatsink on melted...all in the first year of light/medium use.

In the other (£599), within weeks the chassis fan sounded like a football rattle, had random reboots from faulty memory, and another PSU failure, all in the first 1.5yrs use.

And sometimes trying to get Mesh to replace the parts under warranty was so difficult, I ended up buying the replacements myself.

In contrast, a £350 Dell I used and abused for 2 years hadn't had a single problem, and as far as I know the person I sold it to hasn't had any problems.

simple answer is that they can't, and suppliers can't because it's not been officially released yet.

The Windows 7 offer they have is a pre-order and it won't be available for sale or as a PC bundle for another month or so.

As for Mesh, I haven't seen one of their PCs in what has to be at least 10 years! I thought they'd have gone out of business by now...

Mmm, sounds like they may be poorly designed then.

I've had a Dell for over 18 months now which has had a couple of faults but the Dell next day support that comes with their XPS range is superb.
#33
umm, 32bit windows?? that's lame with a quadcore.
Also, on board sound, even surround, is usually poor!
What PSU does it come with?
cold for me.

well you can, and ironically, mesh are doing, £5 off selected desktops when you upgrade to windows 7 which is a fantastic saving .
#35
You want win7 64 bit which so far is an excellent OS , The system itself is perfectly fine and the parts are ok and will play games fine , why some people think they need the highest spec system available i dont know, but you dont to say that this gcard is ok for surfing and office work is a joke it may not be top of the range but surfing and office work lol come on.

You wont get the PC with Win7, they will simply upgrade you when it is released, which is what a lot of retailers, including ebuyer, are doing.

And yes 4850 is an excellent card and will play anything you throw at it (possible exception with Crysis Warhead)
