great deal!!

Hot! pretty ace deal.

400W PSU?

For once, a company which does not stick it's arm in for delivery. Just £1.99 plus VAT is impressive to N Ireland for such a size [and weight] of package.

Looks like a great deal to me if you just wanted a 'standard' PC. Only needs a hard drive and DVD writer to complete.

400W PSU?



Not a problem for the sort of market it's aimed at. oh, and wattage is not the be all and end all of a PSU.

If you want something a bit 'better' then they have this i3 deal as well for £255.31 plus delivery.

Aye

Not a problem for anyone 'into' computers I would have thought.........

Or of course you could go down the [open source] Ubuntu route...

Thought it worth mentioning as posted above there are other cheaper or more expensive options if this system isn't quite what you want.

Wonder what price they could do it with a quad core?

Agreed ,

Ubuntu is very impressive. Put it on my old single core celleron laptop which was so slow with Vista on it, it was painful.

Now it loads faster than my I5 Windows 7 Desktop.

yep i bought their i5 version a while ago, though it came with an antec 900-2 case....really good buy and they are a pretty good company

Looks good to me but i'm a PC noob unfortunately. I'm planning to get into PC gaming so can anyone recommend me a good PC? Would this be good enough to run Black Ops? I run SC2 on my MacBook Pro but the game sometimes lag so would prefer getting a good PC to run the game properly.

Any suggestions guys?

Heat added BTW:)

could i just take the HD out of my dell and put it straight in this with windows on there?

NO


You could get you key from Windows and install a fresh copy of windows on a new hard drive and try your key, but it may still not work as the key may be OEM.

I'd say yes mate, might need to update some drivers though.

+1. Very good service and they even have stores you can walk into! Don't forget TCB/Quidco

I am interested in this for my small office ... can I take the IDE HD from my Dell machine which is around 5 years old (and now running slow) with XP sp2 installed, and simply fit into this machine? I heard that the newer machines cannot handle IDE HDs and need SATA HDs, is this correct? Many thanks for any advice that can be offered. Important as if this works out, I want to eventually swap out 6 PCs in my office.

There is 1 IDE socket on this motherboard, that will allow you to use 2 IDE devices (1 dvd, 1 hard drive etc). You cannot however just take a hard drive with windows and plug it straight in. This is due to Microsoft licensing and also its looking for the drivers for the previous system (these get determined at the installation part of windows and cant be changed afterwards).

You don't NEED to have SATA hard drives for new machines but, they are faster, quieter and cheap! if you are planning on reinstalling anyway you may as well spend another £30 on a newer drive. Keeps everything fresh.

Bought loads from Novatech, really good company to deal with.

Just mulling over how much overkill it would be to buy this just to stick Freenas on it

Thanks Shuttsies

Also worth bearing in mind that 5 years is beginning to get to the end of the usual lifespan for many hard drives. A new one would be a good investment.

Anyone asking about the company - I deal with them pretty much on a weekly basis and always rate them highly. Great staff, reasonable prices and never had any prob with their return dept. I live about a mile away from their first and primary store so its easy for me to collect items without the fear that if something does go wrong i will have to go through the pain of postal returns. In all my years of using them when i have had something DOA its a hastle free easy process.

So can highly recommend

PS bit of trivia for ya all - name Novatech comes from when the owner started out selling Vauxhall Nova spares over the net (PCBs etc). Later he went into computer components and now he lives about 3 miles away from me in a nice big house with his missus, oh and they drive some pretty nice motors as well. Knew i should of invested at the time haha

I know, but that should actually be available today!

Excellent. Bought a similar barebones system 9 months ago, and they sent it on Next Day delivery even though I didn't ask for it! Bought a couple of peripherals lately as well, which were excellent and arrived without issue. Highly recommended!

As for the barebones systems, they really are easy to assemble and all you're missing is typically the disk drives (which many people don't need any more, but always useful) and HDD.

Wow that's a good deal for a barebone!

Scan or Novatech for components?

Would I need connecting cables for these or anything like that? or will they just slot in?

You will need two data cables for the hard drive and DVD drive [buy ones with SATA connectors] as there should be power connectors available on the PSU.

You will also need mounting screws [unless you buy retail versions of the drives] if going for the deal posted. The other barebones deal I posted uses a 'screwless' case design for adding components.

Anyone recommend a good gfx card to go with this?

My laptop's core2Duo 1.6GHz chip can just about handle 1080P unassisted, so this should have no problem at all.
