A good working desktop according to the specs however you'd have to install OS (easy) yourself and it's only available for preorder (not sure about the date of dispatch)

For the non-techines here's a breakdown of the main items:
CPU: Pentium Dual Core E2200 2.2GHz
Memory: 4GB DDR2 RAM
Hard drive: 250GB (1x250GB) SATA II
Optical drive: 20 x Super multi DVDRW

I just got my step-dad to get one of these for his home office and I'm looking forward to setting it up.

That's a pretty good spec IMHO - I'll need to speak to the old man to see if he wants one.

Have some heat mate! :)

Cheers, Scotty Boy! :thumbsup:

Can we overclock these a bit?

Thanks OP:thumbsup:

How much is an operating system ( I know it can be got for free but.....)
#8
also no monitor included, OS is depending which you want, probs like £50-£60ish

Put TinyXP on this and it will fly :thumbsup:

If you install a decent graphics card, even Vista would be fine. (I prefer XP though.)

I'm guessing it comes with on-board graphics.

But if the Dell 'misprice' works out, you'd have a great machine for £212 :)
#11
drivers for XP going to be hard to find any one know ?
#12
that aint bad. i would like vista to be on here which would probably cost another hundred.

either thinking of this one and adding on a OS, or just upgrading the RAM on that new tesco-acer one
#13
That's damn cheap. Drivers for XP will not be difficult to find....

Windows 7 should be fine on it. I tested the beta on a 10 year old machine (P4 1.5G, 512MB, Riva TNT2 Card) and it ran like a breeze

Ubuntu is free.

Hot price
#17
Exactly my thoughts Adamo! But in my case I am making it for my step-dad and mainly for outlook so he can sync with his Nokia... and so far synchronization with non-palm devices in Ubuntu (and generally Linux) is pretty poor. As I am a passionate hater of Vista for it being one step forward and 2 jumps back so I am going to take the windows xp from a current computer to this new baby and put Ubuntu on the old one and use it as a file and media server.
It should arrive tomorrow according to ebuyer so I'll open it (warranty void sticker permitting) and take a look at what motherboard it has.

Anybody know how good this processor is? I'm not up to speed with this Pentium Dual Cores, how do they compare to the Core 2 Duo for example?

Buying this for my dad, shame no quidco!

Can the burner burn Dual Layer?

Unfortunately not as that GPU requires a 750w psu and this will probably only have a 350w psu at best. The mobo would also have to support pci-e x 16 too

don't think so. Doesn't mention DL in the dvd bit
#23
It's not a brilliant processor, but for the money you'd be paying it's not bad at all... it only has an 800FSB, but is easy to overclock (motherboard permitting)

I built myself a system in mid 2007 with a core2duo E6750 CPU in it, and with the other parts it cost me around £700.... this is a steal compared to then and should be almost as fast even without overclocking it. I prefer building my own systems but even I am tempted to buy one of these for my parents. Anyone who actually buys and receives one of these could you run a program called PCwizard on it and find out what motherboard this has, thanks................ link to program (freeware) http://www.cpuid.com/pcwizard.php

I think a 750w psu as a necessity is overkill TBH

Not great. Should be able to OC it to 2.5 easy enough though then its half decent.

It's not for the fx4600 in the Dell misprice thread.

The Pentium Dual Core is a Core 2 Duo simply with a smaller cache and (sometimes, and depends what you are comparing it against) a slower FSB. They are based on the same technology :)

In day to day tasks (browsing, office) you won't notice a huge (if any) difference.

Where is this dell misprice. Want to compare the two done a search but can't seem to find it. Anyone kind enough to point me in the right direction. Many thanks.

Gone for one for my Dad, H+R added - thanks

The dell thread wasn't for a pc, it was for a graphics card, but this has now expired.

Humm seems like a good deal - already own Windows XP and Vista (thank you University of Central Lancashire) and already have a 19" Monitor...

For anyone who would rather their supplier installed the OS...

http://configure.euro.dell.com/dellstore/config.aspx?c=uk&cs=ukbsdt1&l=en&oc=D012210&dgc=AF&cid=5213&lid=122757

...should work out at £258. However, you do sacrifice 2GB of RAM for the privilege (not that I think >2GB is needed for most people). Similar spec otherwise.

I'm sure it will. I cant seen any new DVD writer drive now that wont!

thats a very good deal. spose it wouldnt be too hard to add the extra 2gig of RAM yourself would it?

i upgraded the hardrive to 350gb and added a 256mb video card. works out at £338.10

hmmm tempted

The upgrades are a bit of a con to be honest - I think you could get more cost effective solutions by buying a GFX card and putting it in yourself, and hooking up an external hard drive. However, depends if you are happy doing that and whether you want a hard disk hanging off the main machine.

e.g. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sapphire-11125-00-21R-Radeon-256MB-Graphics/dp/B001FF2RPA/ref=pd_cp_ce_1/280-1716249-7843442?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=center-41&pf_rd_r=1SFYRBW0QWB051D69JD6&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_p=136153791&pf_rd_i=B001FF0S7E

Yep, actually don't go for the graphics card. The HDD maybe cos you'd have to be slightly more technical for that, with the cloning.
#39
you can get 500gb for about £50 and use it as a second drive, no need to clone
#40
could it cope with blu ray ? if external player added ?
thx
