I'm in the IT industry myself and i normally have a good chuckle on my lunchtime reading the papers with the now obligatory page spread each day from Currys/Comet/Dell offering such 'super' deals which are usually a total rip-off with the exception of Dell who to be fair are pretty decent on occasions.

Anyway this caught my eye today and i still think it was a mis-print. PC World have a horrendous reputation for being scam merchants but even this seems to good to be true. It's an absolute f'n BEAST of a system for the money and without having the time to check i reckon if you priced this as a custom system with, for example, Dells online builder it would be pushing nearer a £1,000.

Most deals entering the market now are bigging up 1GB of RAM so to get 2GB is some start. Again 250GB hard drive would be on most deals, so 320GB is the size of a small country (i remember my first PC had 4gb!!). Graphics card is one of the best you'll get at the moment period (most new systems offer 256mb and that itself is still very powerful) and on top of that a lovely widescreen 19" TFT. And of course a very decent dual-core Intel processor.

It was in the paper today for £699 but i can only find it for £899 online but it's the same system. I think it was in the Star or the Sun today. - i only read the very best of papers on my lunch break you see ;-) Code was 050215 which doesn't show up online but it's defo available in store as far as i am aware.

I know it's not exactly a bargain system - £700 is a lot of money - but if your into PC's and especially for running games then this is a hammer of a machine.

I'm still scratching my head and thinking there must be a catch though, PC World just don't do things like this for such a price do they?

EDIT: Forgot to add also a Dual-Layer DVD burner which is always handy especially if your into the modded Xbox 360 scene.

Link showing £899 :-( even when I search by the code. I'll check in store tomorrow, but I reckon there will be no stock at £699 and instead the friendly salesman will try and flog a more expensive, lower spec machine.

The graphics card was an SE is that a budget card ?
What processor BTW was it an E version ?

Might be cheaper components, do you need to take the paper in for that prize ?

Thanks in Advance

Apologies i linked to the wrong deal. Just went to Tescos to get a paper to double check:

Intel Pentium D-950 3.0ghz
2GB RAM
400GB HD (bloody hell!)
512mb nVidia GeForce 7300GS
Dual-Layer DVD Re-writer
19" widescreen TFT

Made a boobo with the dual core i'm sorry but still very good PC for that price. It's page 20 of todays sun and it's the exact same machine but for £699 instead of the price listed online.
