an excellent spec there mate..just make sure you go through Quidco for 5%..most would avoid paying any extra warranty but if it gives you peace of mind then go ahead.

Just as a matter of interest how much was the graphics card upgrade...cos you can buy a 7900gs for £120...and sell whatever came as standard in the build.

I see the graphics card upgrade was £105..so not bad as you'd probably be pushed to get £40 for the one that comes as standard.

Nice piece of kit. You can't really do much better for this money (especially with 19" display included).

I like the fact that you have RAID 0 by default. It really makes a difference and can be sometimes tricky to set it.

Graphics card is one of the best for performance / price ratio and should be enough to play even quite demanding hames.

All in all, I wouldn't think twice before clicking the "Buy" button. It's a good price for good kit that will suit your needs very well.

thanks guys, i really appreciate your advise and comments. i was wondering if i could ask just another question reguarding quidco.
i have set up an account a few months ago and have made a couple of purchases from hvm via quidco but i did not get anything at all from them. nothing appered on the screen.
As seen on the forum boards on here i read that in order for it to work properly you must delete all cookies relating to web site , i think this is why it did not work, i have now downloaded mozzila and have set the home page to quidco , i have not used mozilla nor made any purchases since via quidco. so my question is , is this all i need to to or is there anyway of making sure it all goes thorugh as it would be worth £45 cash back . thanks again

thanks in advance !!

All you do is this,

Open Firefox

Go to Tools >> Clear private data >> (Make sure they're all ticked) >> Click OK

Now you have a clean cookie cache

Go to Quidco.com

Log in

Search for the Dell page

Click through the Dell link (Make sure you've logged in)

Place order

Wait a couple of hours and check your Quidco to make sure it's tracked

I've got a seperate browser that I only use for quidco cos like you I was losing cashback because purchases were failing to track ....my advice is to try using the Kelkoo link from Quidco and if it tracks you will see 10p in your earnings...time varies but it should be there within 24 hours.

I'm not sure but I think when you are on Kelkoo you have to make a link to a retailer for the 10p to be tracked.

If all works then that will give you the confidence to make your Dell purchase through quidco.
