Dial down (underclock) the CPU for a great media center! Can take a couple of drives at least.

Beats the socks off an Atom CPU. DDR3 memory for upgrade cheapness.

Looks a bit like an old-school XBox 360 :-)

poor post
random components from random retailers
stick them together
post as a deal?

post a cheap price for a specific deal by all means but
"BITS ON PC FROM DIFFERRNT PLACES FOR X PRICE" is not much use other than as a guide which could be additional info to a specific piece.

Rather the cheapest components with free delivery. Find a cheaper price for these components delivered and then vote it cold. Do the legwork (like I already have, thus presenting a deal for voting)

Let the temperature decide...the last one you slagged off went to 400+ degrees. (_;)

No DVD? I don't deal in optical for my HTPC...daft to put one in if you don't really need it. Add one at your leisure.

Linux is free. Boxee is free. Install with USB stick. Just giving a bundle component deal. Let the masses decide, irrespective of trolling.

another poor post, wasn't me.
when posting a deal it doesn't ask for multiple links to multiple retailers - this is just a mishmash.

edit: just want to make it clear that each of those components may well be the best deals ever and together make the best pc ever.
BUT with a multiple item format then its not able to be properly judged/searched/followed.
nothing wrong with outlining a potential use for a component but saying 'roll up roll up heres a deal of stuff from some places that you can make something with come in and see' isnt so good.

looks good enough I don't mind buying parts separately. Works out just the same doesn't it?
Why are you people having this argument. It's a good deal get over it.

So you're saying that, even though you haven't followed up any of the prices. it gives you the right to criticise the deal? Pathetic.

I'd rather people came back with something constructive, rather than wasting my time with trolling.

I'm fully in favour of deals like this. It's certainly worth considering. Trouble is, I'm too lazy to purchase and assemble the various separate parts but heat added anyway.

OK boys - end of round 1

Firstly - Lupeto has clearly spent a lot of time researching prices and creating this thread to 'build' a Mini PC Bundle and I am grateful -and would be especially grateful if I was wanting to buy a Mini PC Bundle.

It might however work better if they were posted as individual deals / merchants eg CiT S002 Black Slim micro-ATX Desktop/Tower Case with 450W PSU £41.48 delivered @ Scan and Intel Celeron E3400 2.6GHz 800Mhz FSB 1MB Cache Retail Boxed Processor £35.06 @ Ebuyer. I would edit your first post / links though Lupeto to include who the merchant is though

Nonethless - like I say; good effort by Lupeto. And let's get this back on topic please.

Thanks Andy,

I've updated the merchants on the deals.

I've tried to make bundles, hitting minimum-spend delivery thresholds (where applicable).

As such, some of the items aren't great deals in themselves, but combining purchases at certain places can glean benefits.

I just think that there's loads of people could build their own computer, with the help of a combo of parts and a tutorial video.

Deals presented as this:
- allows people to get a feel for the market price vs pre-built systems
- gets rid of the "I can build it cheaper" hyperbole...PROVE IT. Post it as a deal.

Approval.

Putting the system in context, it's more powerful and more flexible than the Revo, and that chip should be ample to decode 1080p in software. Skip on the harddrive, and you've effectively got yourself a streaming media centre for very little money.

So, it's better than a Revo. But, at £160, you've really got to consider the option of second-hand Core2Duo laptops, of which the lower rungs of the spectrum regularly sell for that sort of money. Personally, I'd go for the laptop, and plug a 2TB USB drive into it, or run it off the network. T'would be a lot more flexible, and far, far better on the electricity bill, especially if you plan on leaving it on 24/7. Laptops tend to draw around 12-20 watts at idle with the screen off, even basic desktops draw around four times that.

Good thoughts there. Cheers.

It's a 65W processor (under load). With some underclocking, the idle power consumption could be brought down considerably.

Source: http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/celeron-e3300_8.html#sect0
It turned out that the minimal power consumption of the new Celeron processors is about 20 W, which is a very impressive result. It means that Celeron E3000 processors can be used in energy-efficient systems with total power consumption no higher than 50 W under peak load when paired with mainboards based on chipsets with integrated graphics core.

Could you include different memory in your deals in the future? I don't know if you've used it in the past, but I bought two sticks of Simmtronics memory from 7DayShop for the PC I recently built, and they gave me no end of blue screens and crashes to desktop.

On top of which, they corrupted any large file I tried to download from the internet.

Paying the couple of pounds extra for Corsair or Crucial value RAM is definitely worth it, and I'd hate for someone to buy the components you've recommended only to have to replace the RAM.

Edit: The title and the technical specs for the case you linked say the PSU is 450w, but the URL and the product overview say it is a 300w PSU. I wonder which it is?

Edit 2: Also I don't see any mention of on-board graphics on the Motherboard's description/tech specs. How are you outputting to a TV without a graphics card?

Just to quote the cheapest possible RAM.

If you prefer branded and want it now, pay extra.

If you're prepared to wait and send back dodgy RAM after testing, you can save yourself £10. Again the choice is there, but it costs. I've ordered 4 sticks for £44...£11 a stick for 4 computers, if I get a dodgy one, back it goes.

Just presenting the bottom-level configuration.


Edit: The title and the technical specs for the case you linked say the PSU is 450w, but the URL and the product overview say it is a 300w PSU. I wonder which it is?

True. I'm not sure. 300W is plenty for this spec anyway.


Edit 2: Also I don't see any mention of on-board graphics on the Motherboard's description/tech specs. How are you outputting to a TV without a graphics card?


It's a G41 motherboard...it has Intel GMA X4500.
