Quad Core AMD Phenom 9500 System £215.00

PLEASE SEE POST 4 & 5 FOR PICTURES

The system components are:

Asus M2A-VM
AMD Phenom 9500+
ATI Radeon X1250
Seagate Barracuda 80GB SATA Hard Drive
Liteon DVDRW Drive
IT Colors Case
400W PSU with 20A on 12v rail
Mushkin High Performance 1GB DDR2 RAM
Drivers CD-ROM
Nero Express 7

I have been using Ubuntu 7.10 on this system for about a month. I can if you wish, format the hard drive so that you can install whichever operating system you want, or install ubuntu 7.10 afresh. Please remember Ubuntu is software libre. I do have a new copy of Vista Home Premium 32bit as shown here

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/124781

So i can only install this for you, if you or anyone in your family qualifies for an educational discount. Also I'd have to add £56 on top of the current price. I recommend adding another 1GB of RAM if using Vista. I can add 1GB more brand new Crucial RAM for £14. However, this RAM is the standard Crucial stuff, so not as good as the Mushkin RAM included.
Shipping/Payment:
I prefer collection obviously. But I think £25 should cover shipping an insurance. I'll refund any difference if cheaper.

All BT prices, please add the relevant fees for paypal.

Delivery Costs dropped to £20.

onboard gfx yes?

shame i just build my dual core amd this is a BARGAIN for soeme one :(

Yep, onboard graphics. The motherboard will accept any PCI-Express 16x graphics card i.e. nearly any new one.

For the more powerful graphics cards, a PSU with greater wattage as well as more amps on the 12v rail will be needed.

Don't undersell yourself mate, 20a on the 12v line is fine for most cards. The 8800GT only requires 18amp at peak. Obviously if your putting a GTX or Ultra in there, or the older GTS 320 or 640 then maybe get a branded PSU, but 20amps is fine for most other cards, even with a couple of hard drives and some USB devices will be ok, not forgetting the quad core.

By the way going by the ampage that is a 450W PSU, again probably peak power but will be good enough for most cards if your not running a dozen hard drives or so.

Great price for a ready built system, would be perfect if you included delivery at that price.

Dont know who told you that. But a system with an 8800gt will require more. 18*12 = 216w. The CPU alone uses 95W, add the 8800GT and other components and you approach very dangerously close to 216w. With a dual core CPU with a lower TDP it may be possible.

No it aint. As you can see from the photo it is a 400w PSU. The wattahe rating made by PSU manufactureres is open to a lot of manipulation. but they cant lie about the voltages of the rails. hence you should look at the rails always anyway.

I dont know your background in computing but you are very wrong. I wont misguide people and say it supports an 8800gt because it doesnt and i may get complaints after any sale. If it does work at first, its dangerously close to the limit and if over, stressing the PSU. To think that the 12v power draw will not go above 240w (20*12) with 8800gt is reckless. I think the actual nvidia recommendation is 24A with a test setup which has x6800.

but the price is great :).

Also, price dropped to £230.

Well good luck with your sale mate, but your calculations need to come back to the real world.

This system will run a single 8800GT no problem at all, yes it may be a poor PSU, but it will run it, the power is there, whether it is stable or not is a totally different matter. But that is not my point, my point is a 400W PSU will run an 8800GT without any problems, even with the Phenom processor.

And yes I can see that the PSU says 400W, so either it is a misprint or they are full of poop with their amps, because going by their amps on each rail it is clearly stating a 450W PSU. Which will make it even better.

And your theory that Nvidia state 24 amps on the 12v rail to run the 8800GT is true, but in the real worl it is not, it does not require any more than 18amps at peak load. (Companies state the max amps just to keep things safe because they know about the naff PSU's on the market and they are just trying to cover themselves for warranty purposes,) Yes this may be a naff PSU, but it still covers more amps on the 12v rail than your system needs. Flipping heck mate, if all cards were to use mid to high 20's then we all would need 1000W PSU's just to run a GTX!!!

We will be spending 60 quid on a Corsair 550W PSU just to run a GT.

When in fact a 550W Corsair, Enermax, Saesonic PSU will run SLI GTX!!! Never mind a single one.

Sorry If I have ranted in your thread, but I am just pointing out that your PSU will run a single 8800GT with the Phenom processor and the drives in it.

If it goes knees up then that is nothing to do with the ampage, it is just down to bad luck. Just as Hiper did a few years ago with their award winning 60quid + type R psu's that were faulty and pants!!!!

Do a Google, a 400W PSU will run a 8800GT, but as yours is really a 450W cheap PSU you have even more leeway. As I said 20a is good enough in the real terms for the card.

Hopefully you will get your asking price, a great setup at a great price. :thumbsup:

The x1250 isnt good enough. You would need a new graphics card which can be added easily. The price reflects the fact it lacks a modern games capable graphics card. It will run older games fine though.

Can you actually add it up like that though. For example,

http://www.corsair.com/products/vx.aspx

If you look at the tables, the wattage rating isnt simply the total of the rail outputs.

Also, you can get a vx550 for ~£50. I have it and its a brilliant PSU.

edit: Well I did get it for £51 inc free del from dabs, but the price has gone up.
#13
Yup great PSU, also great system your selling, I am not sure on the amps, I was always lead to believe you did it that way. Has been ok for me so far and I have built hundreds of systems going on my theory over the last 3/4 years.

Also in the past most other components used to run off your 5v line, but I have just been informed that now almost everything runs off your 12v lines, which I find hard to believe but may be true. If thtat is the case then any wattage calculated through a 5v line is redundant.

Anyway, I need sleep, been fun arguing while I am drunk lol.

I will wake up tomorrow and look at this thinking wtf?

But all in all it should help with the sale and I still stand by my original point, this PSU will run the 8800GT, they use much less power than the older GTS cards.

Hi, interesting debate on here!!

I have a few questions.

How quiet is the machine?
Is it still under warranty? Has it been overclocked?
Where are you based in London?
Would you knock some off if I didn't take the hard disk?

Cheers

John
#15
Its a fairly quiet system. The chassis fan is dead silent zalman one, the CPU fan makes an "average" amount of sound. It doesnt use expensive fans which could make it less noisy, but that would add to the price. You could always do that later.

I am based in Stoke Newington. As for the hard disk, I can knock a tenner off. Nothing has been overclocked. As for the warranty, it is a custom made machine and therefore the individual parts have warranties. The motherboard has a 1 year warranty. The hard disk has 3 years left. The RAM has a lifetime warranty but dont think its transferable to a second user. The processor warranty also isnt transferable. The rest of the items are cheap enough to ignore any warranty really.

edit: The Crucial RAM mentioned at the bottom has a lifetime warranty. I can if you wish switch the mushkin RAM for that and keep the price the same.
#16
Hi thanks for that.

Wondered what would be the cheapest way to fill this up to 4gb ram - is there much of a difference between the good stuff and the value stuff? i do music production on my pc and i'm wondering if the RAM chips make a big difference or not? You sound like someone that would know!

Also, would you take 200 delievered to Manchester? I wouldn't need the HD. (parcel 2go are quite cheap and reliable)

Cheers

John
#17
Im afraid, £200 delivered isnt possible. I can only sell at the mentioned price. As for delivery, I havent quite looked into it but I believe that when you add insurance on parcel2go, it adds up. But my £25 estimate may be a bit high.

If you want 4 gigs of RAM. My recommendation is to take the crucial RAM I mentioned, and then add 3 more of these

So youd need 1 of the dual kits and 1 more stick on its own. This is indentical to the crucial RAM i have and therefore there shouldnt be any problems. Remember to use quidco for 10% cashback.

Bump.

How about 220 delivered to manchester including the HD and ram?

I cant do that im afraid.

£215 + delivery not including additional RAM is the absolute rock bottom price now.
#21
2nd and final bump before ebay

£215 + insured delivery (£20 via parcel2go)

hi, just wondered whether you'd sold the computer yet?
