My first posted bargain, hope you think its OK.

It's not a top end GFX card by a long shot, but a good low end graphics card that's better than an onboard solution - perfect for a cheap and cheerful system. Also got decent connectivity with DSUB (standard VGA), DVI and TV out.

Ebuyers card is low profile so you have to buy the bracket for normal case fit seperately. Not bad for the price to built a quiet pc.

Would this card do for my Dell Vostro 200 bought last Christmas it only has onboard graphics

So Intel quad core cpu, Samsung memory, Foxconn Motherboards, Hitachi Hard Drives, Toshiba -Samsung optical drives are all cheap, tacky & not well made?... my Dell is made of those - what bespoke components at bargain prices do you use, as I always used this sort of gear myself when building systems, as that is what is around in the marketplace! Odd that they would be cheap if a retailer has already had his mark-up and they should remain cheaper than what a big manufacturer can bargain for. What extra should Dell be doing to make the systems better made - gold plated knobs, alloy wheels, leather seats? Are any other manufacturers doing much different?

I have not bought anything I won't use - I put some extra Ram in today - it was cheaper than buying it installed, (that's how MOST manufacturers of MOST goods make their money, on EXTRAS! If you had seen a bare Mercedes car, you would know what I mean) and I might put a graphics card in later, again because it was cheaper that way.
If I had spent more in the first place, I would have had to spend about 40/45 quid more just for the RAM, but that doesn't make the original PC any worse.

I keep asking for examples of better or cheaper systems, with same OS, for the same or less money, delivered to the doorstep - if you are lucky, odd times there isn't a lot in it, but better and cheaper? So far, I am still waiting, and you will also wait longer to have it up and running too :-(

Dell behaves in the same way as Tesco do with the retail trade - they want to dominate the market, and while I can appreciate that is NOT necessarily a good thing, their buying power beats down the price, and you just can not do better as a one off purchaser. No matter how many times you people say it, building your own PC still DOES NOT work out at the lower end of the market, and has not done for some time.

Heh... The Poweredge mentioned above was £99 with (from memory) dual core, 80Gb SATA drive and 1Gb RAM about a year ago... I think spending £22 for a slightly better graphics card is a perfectly acceptable compromise :)

We bought a few for our work as development servers and workstations, and they've been working very well indeed.

Not trying to start a fight or anything... :)

Cheers,
Gerard

This is an OK deal but i would recommend the HD 2400 if your looking for an budget GPU with decent performance.

No... I make a good PC BUILDER...... I have built LOADS, but I don't now - unlike you, I know when I CAN NOT build a PC better or cheaper. Nor can I build a Ford Focus cheaper, or a Zannussi washing machine - they can buy the components in FAR cheaper than someone who could build one up.

YOU say you can, I say you are WRONG, but you still post this sort of junk, to avoid the issue!

PUT UP OR SHUT UP

Come on... this site is about BARGAINS.... I can't do it, so now I don't - you show us HOW it is done.
Anyway, this is getting off topic for this thread... why not take it back to the thread you make your claims in - the thread on the Tesco Dell machine, wasn't it?.... go on tell us how to build that for £284 - delivered in 48 hours.

That's the one Dell put in, and (over) charge 47 quid for in some of their builds, I think. My partner's machine has it, seems OK.[/SIZE]
