not bad
#2
I seen this instore today when I went in, I think it was this anyway.. it was Packard Bell quad core.
#3
Very reliable ol' Packard Bell's!

Would upgrade graphics but other than that a cracking little machine!
#4
these come with a 250w PSU from the info i can gather. any graphics upgrades might not be that easy.
#5
it is a good deal...shame it has VGA and not DVI connection
#6
Does this have a TV tuner?

VGA only? Wow - if that's the case it's cold from me. You'd not be able to upgrade to playing blu rays later without a new gfx card (as well as the drive obv). It seems quite amiss for a system to be analogue only nowadays. Shame - great otherwise (although I had a packard bell and the PSU burnt out).
#9
Seriously, no DVi??
#10
with a decent psu and graphics card this is a gd pc...!
#11
Just upgrade to a new gfx, can pick decent ones up quite cheaply now.

Voted hot

A passively cooled ATI HD 3400 would work well...
#13
I think you might be able to get this even cheaper if you ask for just the base unit. I'm not sure if this is still possible, but the last PC I bought from them I was able to buy the base unit separately.


What, so this is £384.99 WITH a monitor??? Bargain if so. HOT

Im sure this is just the base unit...
#15
I'm on my second X2416 now. The motherboards sufffer terribly from coil whine. I think this one is going back too.
#16
If it's a VGA only monitor then with the low spec. PSU it's a middling deal. As the base unit seems VGA only it's a fair bet any monitor is analogue - for me that's fatal.
#17
its got nothing on the core i7 processor.
#18
its just the base unit

blu ray doesnt interest me really, nor does the graphics card
#19
scrapard bell at £385 good spec umm i give it a miss
#20
You lot are very difficult to please. It's a good deal, everything that's been pointed out as a possible concern is cheaply and easily solved.

laze
#21
ok so far the cons are it may be difficult to play Blu-Rays in the future and that the graphics may be a bit s**t

my current graphics card is a sapphire radeon 9200se alantis 128mb

cant be worse than that, can it?
#22
very decent computer for a very decent price!
Have some heat :)
#23
Whats so good with DVI- I've never had to use mine... :D
#24
Cold from me.

Cheap ram, a intergrated graphics card and a rubbish psu. Great. :w00t:
#25
Noticed the title says 2.8 processor. Its 2.33ghz
#26
is it 32 or 64 version of vista
#27
Ive got a dvi monitor with vga as well, all you lot banging on about its terrible that it doesnt have a dvi slot might want to realise its not that big an issue considering theres ****** all difference between the two, its not noticable, so whys that a deal breaker? A non noticable dvi vs vga load of sillyness.

Its a good deal. voted hot.

If you want to update the card to vga you can get a silent one for £15-20.

True.

You would be better off at Dell outlet. For £10 more they have a Inspiron 530 with Q8200, 3GB, 500GB and a 256mb 3650. The big bonus is its not a Packard Bell!

has... wot about price ;-)
#30
Was tempted but the Micro ATX MOBO and PSU put me off. Oh and it is 2.33GHz and not 2.8.

judging price it ent gonna hav a gd graphics card, psu is only gonna just about power the system, and if ur gonna mention cheap ram well dont forget the motherboard ;-)

any way tbh providing it has a pci-e port which it should....u could get a 3870 or better and it would be good for gaming....

as for ram well....if u want to overclock then get a gd make if not im sure this will fit ur needs.

£380 is not cheap for those specs.

For £380, you could build a much better computer. Which would include atleast a 4850.

I doubt the average PC World customer would ever consider building their own computer, for them its a good offer. In fact, most people on here wouldn't do it either.

Please can you put these components down as I'm not having any joy getting the price lower than £380!!
#35
If it was a 2.8, then it would have been a steal. But as its the lowest quadcore 2.33ghz, is not worth it. There was a few deals before crimbo where 2.4's were cheaper than this at ebuyer and dell outlet

It has the lowest core speed of the quads but its not the slowest. The 2.4 Q6600 you saw before is in fact slower.
#37
not a bad spec for the money so voted hot. If peeps did get this and decided to upgrade the psu/gfx then you might want to check that this wouldn't invalidate the warranty. I would have thought that this would have been Vista 32bit too.

Excactly, it's the new-ish quadcores that Intel have released and perform much better than the old Q6600.
#39
can you upgrade your memory from DDR2 667MHz/PC2-5300 to say DDR2 800mhz?

yes, if the mobo supports that speed. I would have thought it supports up to 800mhz
