I'm not too sure of the specs but found this (http://www.pcworld.com/product/29435/dell_dimension_e520.html?p=specs) which says

Processor Class Intel Core 2 Duo E6300
Processor Speed 1860 GHz
Installed Video Memory per Card 256 MB
Video bus PCI Express
Video chipset Nvidia GeForce 6150 LE
Installed memory 1024 MB
Optical Drive Speed 16
Optical Drive Type DVD-ROM
Second Optical Drive Type DVD±R DL/DVD±RW

the hard drive has been removed. I will include the mouse and keyboard (both dell) in the sale

would prefer collection due to its size and weight but would consider posting if required.

i am also selling the monitor seperately in another thread.

any questions just ask


forgot to add picture - have now added picture a few comments down

How much are you looking for, including delivery?

Also, I simply can't understand why you won't include the Hard Drive with this system. You have stated that you are concerned about your privacy, but the data contents can be deleted by simply formatting the system. Please consider adding the HDD with this deal.

Thanks

Actually the safest way of getting rid of data is to smash the hard drive into pieces, its the only way you can safely get rid of everything, thats why police can recover data from formatted hard drives.

I am interested myself OP, I live in Ayr but would still need it posted.

This is a Celeron D not a Core2Duo according to the pics. You need to post the service tag so people can check the specs themselves on the ~Dell website.

hi i responded in the other thread to tell you i had posted this, where do i find out the service tag?
#10
On the barcode or unit should have a sticker with the service tag on its a mixture of numbers and letters
#11
Usually a black sticker with white writing. http://www.immersion.com/images/global/markets/medical/Dell_service_tag.jpg

You can find the 'Service Tag' on a the side of the tower written on a black label as shown here

formatting a drive doesnt prevent data retrieval. you can get software to securely delete data though

Okay, I know all this. Since the Hard Drive is destroyed let's not talk no more about it. Let it RIP.

go to http://support.euro.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=uk&cs=ukdhs1&l=en&s=dhs in internet explorer and click on "Find My Service Tag" and let it scan your computer for the service tag number.

oops sorry, I forgot you removed the hard drive, another way is

when you switch on your computer, on the dell screen hit F2 which takes you to bios setup and in system information it will have your service tag number.

There is no other way of obtaining the service tag number other then to access the computer as the sticker has faded unless you still have the invoice.

It wouldn't because os sticker on the system is windows vista, the drive is a dvd rw, and the onboard gpu is totally different.

Also op states 2 drives, but picture shows only 1.

Yeh maybe so as Dell Systems are usually Preference based, however it maybe something similar and without no Service Tag we cannot do nothing.
