No graphics card??:thinking:
#2
http://zoostorm.com/

Site under construction still, no drivers no backup
#3
The Tesco Acer desktop is a similar spec but has blu-ray and costs less than this.
#4
Problem is that it will be a cheap-sh1t motherboard...
#5
OP can you edit it so that the price is on the title please? :thumbsup:
#6
No graphics card ??....It's like buying a car with no wheels ...:whistling:
banned#7
is the power supply good enough?
gonna rate hot becuase of quad core & 4gb ram,
would be nice with a 3650 or something though.
#8
Voted hot. I a have Q6600 processor and is easily overclocked to 3Ghz using the stock cooler, as long as the motherboard supports tweaking the voltagle to the processor and tweaking the FSB to 300mhz.

*overclocking is done at your own risk.
#9
Needs a graphics card and a better PSU to supply it. Just warm for me at this price.

Ditto.
#11
addind gfx card and an uprated PSU will still make it cheaper and better than the nearest rivals. The only spec that came close was the machine at ALDI. Pity that one wasn't as widely available as it could've been. Voted HOT

I would not recommend overclocking the Q6600 with stock cooler. The quad cores temperatures are difficult to measure, and on a few occasions Ive spoke to people who use something like speed fan without adjusting the temp settings (normally by 15C) so its being running a lot hotter than what the program was stating. Just be careful and a aftermarket cooler will only cost between £10-15

Do you have a link to the Blu Ray one please?
#14
Tesco Blue Ray one is now £599.00
It went up from £499.00
#15
Ive got a similar pc witha 9800gt amp for roughly a bi tmore.
#16
not really been keeping up to track with the latest recommended specs on PC games, ...

would this computer cope well with latest games on the market?,.. plus newer games in the future?

... obviously after i add a graphics card :thumbsup:
#17
Very nice, hot from me! If I was gonna get this, I'd couple it with a Radeon 4870
#18
Yes Yuzo,but you need to budget £60 for a half decent card then another £40 for a psu, making it at least £500 spent.

I'm sure there must be better deals out there.
#19
I have a Q6600 with 4gb ram and a Zotac 9800 GT amp edition, it plays EVERY SINGLE GAME on high settings with resultion 1440x900 including crysis, call of duty 5 and more, without any flaws!
#20
Actually after a little bit of reading you might well be ok with this PSU and say an ATI 4850.

Just read that they don't draw that much power. http://episteme.arstechnica.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/67909965/m/327008845931/inc/-1

hmmm dont this have onboard graphics?

would explain (no graphics card)
#23
Could i put my 7600GT from this comp i'am using now in this?
#24
Amazing Deal considering the component cost. Building your own at this spec would cost:

MIN component price
Case: £40
M.Board: £30
CPU: £110
Memory : £30
750GB HD: £53
DVDRW : £14
Key/Mouse: £20
PSU: £20
Vista Prem: £59

Tot: £376.00


so £395. Delivered IS HOT!!

Yes, as long as it's PCIe and not the older AGP.

...except that the Q6600 is now around £140 (as a result of the US exchange rate) and you can get a PSU, Case, KB and Mouse for £30 from ebuyer... I don't think the Zoostorm will have the best quality of these things. I'd say it's closer to £360 to build yourself...

Well, if it didn't, you would have nowhere to plug in a monitor... It does state that it has Intel 2D/3D graphics in the description. Probably a GMA 950...
#29
MOBO isn't gonna be great obviously, wouldn't get this for myself cos I need an SpDIF output for my 5.1 channel speaker system for one thing and for another I build my own PCs so I know what quality the components are that are going into it.... but for my family or sis to use it'd be ok I think.
#30
Never, and I mean never buy a zoostorm.

I made that mistake once - customer service and quality are both appalling - my laptop broke down 3 times in 7 months. There is no place to get drivers/updates or anything of that sort - that website has been 'under construction' for about a year and a half :?

The tech guy even told me that since one of my speakers want working and they didnt have another laptop case i would just have to live with it.

Hope this helps someone,

Looking around i found this for about £45 more........

http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/5080441/Trail/searchtext%3ECOMPUTER.htm

(out of stock...but using for comparison)

smaller hard drive and less memory....
but with a GeForce 9600GT graphics card.

What do the experts on the forum think of this compared to the Zoostorm?

:)
banned#32
Absolute bargain, and for those who want it with a graphics card there seems to be the same model except with a bigger PSU (500W) and also a 9800GT graphics card for £100 more.

I would say the Fujitsu if I HAD to pick from these 2 but I would personally go for a Dell or other more popular brand over the zoostorm but like everything it really does depend on what you are actually wanting to use the computer for.

if you are intending to play the latest games at higher settings etc then you either get the best desktop you can get and then add a new graphics card OR get a slightly worse computer overall but it comes with the better graphics card.

Of course if you are after just decent mid range desktops that will allow the odd games then try PC Checker which I have found to be great to get a head start on working out the best value for money when helping friends and family with buying new computers..
#34
Don't be fooled by this deal. The mobo is utterly ****, only 2 ram slots LOL, the power supply will only be good enough for gfx cards that are either cheap to mid range for cards released within the last 2 years, or any card from 2 years ago. Yes the processor is nice but you really should look elsewhere. This really isn't a hot deal if you know what a pc needs from each component.

Chef....if i put my 7600gt in ....(don't play games)
have no intention of overclocking the cpu (wouldn't know how to)
and 4gb of memory will be more than enough for me
would you consider the mobo to be "adaquate"

the cpu is the main reason i'am considering this comp!

do lots of file converting..
burning...
ripping ..
etc.
:)
#36
Yes and no. Your basically paying over the odds just to benefit from the CPU which on its own only costs £160. Because you don't play games and have no intention of overclocking then that's even more reason not to go for this rig IMHO. The 6600 is meant to be overclocked and at default its a waste of money. That's why i don't agree with this system as it gives the assumption your buying a Q6600 pc when your not, your buying a s*** hot engine in a 250,000 miles 20 year old car.

If you have £400 to spend on a pc for your needs, the Phenoms will save you well over £100 on a similar performing CPU so it can be used on the rest of the spec.

Thanks for the reply :)
looking around the web...the impression i get is that the phenoms have a few "issues" ??

do you have any recomendations phenom wise?

thanks :)

Phenoms don't overclock very much, unlike the Intel Quads which apparently can usually be overclocked like crazy. The fastest ones also run very hot.

However, for the price you get excellent performance & you can get a 9750 which fits in the 95W envelope and can be dropped into a cheap motherboard.

Basically, if you want to overclock, just bite the bullet and pay for an Intel chip right now. This will all change in January however, as the new Phenoms will be out which appear to overclock like crazy themselves...
