Yes you did, but they were/are 'value' panels, second rate stock that Dell is trying to get rid of dressed up as a bargain. Virtually worthless/useless for many tasks where you need a clear monitor.

So with is deal you are effectively trading a £60 monitor for a £60 graphics card.

You can then buy a decent monitor if you need one.

True but I still went with the dell in the end - mainly because I could sell the 19" monitor on ebay thus the machine would cost me approx £250 and plus it came with 2GB ram. I then brought a 7600 GT for £49 from aria.

I bought the £270 E520 Dell Base Unit with Vista Business and have purchased a £75 Sapphire x1650xt to go in it. I already had a 22" Rev A01 monitor.

While looking around for other deals on Desktops and Graphics cards I came across the PCNextDay deal with £170 off and ready to play games straight away with no changes required. I just thought it may interest a few people who don't want to have to open up their PC and make changes/additions.

I didn't expect it to be voted hot ;-)

You have an ATI 1650xt in your E520 - do you have the standard PSU or have you upgraded the PSU?

The Sapphire x1650xt is designed to draw all its power from the PCIe slot on the Mobo.
The Mobo can supply a maximum of 75w, the x1650xt uses 55w at peak.
The Sapphire x1650xt is a slim 1 slot card with no additional power connection.

Have a look here:

please note that there is no mention of dual core..so the CPU must be a single core.
