Anyone can use the Dell Business site and the voucher is valid for all users. You will find endless blather about the use of the Dell business site on this forum but if you know what you want to buy there are no issues to worry about.

Cheers for that...

Just trying to find out more about the case as I have a few HDDs that I'd like to squeeze in there.

I think they only have space for two 3.5" drives but there is space to install more in the 5.25" bays. You can check the spec online on the main Dell site.

Just bear in mind there are some appliations in Vista Home Premium that are NOT in Vista Business.

I know someone who bought a PC with Vista Business on it and then had to pay to upgrade to Vista Utlimate to get the Vista applications they wanted.

Missing application in Business include Media Centre, Movie Maker and DVD Maker.

And there are plenty of better alternatives anyway.

Good price

I don't need the monitor, is there a deal to be had just on the desktop?

Using the voucher this is £189.53 without the monitor and the wireless keyboard/mouse. Compare the other Dell deals posted.

Okay, just seen you can buy without the monitor. Couple of questions for all of you in the know...

1. Do you recommend upgrading to a 2.2GHZ processor for an extra £10 (will it really make that much difference)
2. Assume Quidco is available on this deal

Thanks and goodnight :w00t:

:thumbsup:How about removing the monitor, changing the speed to 220 GHz, adding the cordless laser mouse and keyboard and going to vista ultimate. Use code W2N3KTH5ZLW3M8 , (thanks MUG51), Comes out at £271.06, (then theres 5% Quidco. A very good price for a reasonable upgrade to a lot of present day computers, (i am planning on doing this as i have a great graphic card and wirless etc already, just a tempremental unstable system:x ) :w00t:

1. I would save your £10. Difference not really noticeable.
2. Use the Quidco Dell Small/Medium business link.

Silly question (i'm sure) but when you go through Quidco, how can I get the exact build as on this deal - is there a code I can insert on the Dell website that can bring it up? Can't miss out on 5% Quidco! :thinking:

D092036 will do it in the e-code section....put any letter you like in the first box but the specific code in the second.

From the desktop link at the top left select the Vostro option. Follow the links for the Vostro 200 and select the model priced (ex Vat/Delivery) from £249 and the 'customise' link. Model number is D092036.

Remove the monitor and ensure that you have selected the minimum guarantee option.

Hi, i am new to this website, i need a commie for uni.
Can anyone use the business as when you go to checkout it says business email address and password??

So can only businesses use it or can the general public use it?

Anyone can use it. The business site is set up because different laws apply to Business to Business trade. Just have to be aware that consumer protection laws do not necessarily apply to business purchases - for example Distance Selling Regulations; no returns for refunds within 7/14 days just because you did not like what you ordered.

Ah rite, thanks for that il get buying lol Cheers

17" screen isn't fantastic, and without it (and using the 10% off voucher) this deal isn't much better than the one last month. OK but not great.

It's usually better to buy a monitor separately as it will then typically have a 3 year warranty as opposed to the 1 year that this would come with.
Note. It’s not a 17”, it’s a 19” as per the OP’s listing.

Hi

Need some advice

I already have a 22" monitor, 8800 GTS gfx card and Windows Vista Home Premium, need everything else!

Will i be able to put in a 8800 GTS into this system, cant see any mention of it having a PCI-E slot? How will it affect the warrenty if i open up the box?

I basically need a reasonable gaming system of similar spec, can anyone reccommend an alternative system. Perhaps i could save some on not have windows pre-loaded as already have a legit copy of Vista i only picked up last year.

Thanks in advanced :-D

It has a PCIe x16 slot. The power supply is ~300W and has no PCIe 6 pin power connector or molex power connectors; it’s SATA only.
I don’t know how much power an 8800 GTS consumes but as the rest of this system consumes little power it may well work; you’ll need appropriate power adapters though.
Opening the box doesn’t affect the warranty.
It’s hard to save money buying a pre-built system without Windows installed as the few systems that offer this aren’t generally good deals in the first place.

I have a 9800GT card in one of these and it runs fine, even though the box said it needs a 450W power supply, so the Dell is obviously pumping out much more power than the rated 300W.

300W is enough for a 9800 GT in this system provided the 12V rail is half decent. The graph below shows AC input and power supplies are rated for DC output so 300W DC = ~350W AC.

Thanks op :thumbsup:

Thanks for the info.

The power supply shouldnt be a problem i have a decent 650W one that i was originally using.

I was wondering how this system would fair for gaming with a 8800? I've had a look on Toms hardware at the cpu charts but cant see the processor thats in this system.

Similarly would it be worth upgrading to 2.2Ghz?

Thanks

Thanks this is a great deal to me. I didn't need the monitor so got the system for just over £200 and I am very pleased. It seems to have a great spec for that price.
Cheers

Hard to say but my Vostro with an E2200 and 2GB memory and an XFX Fatality 7600GT gets 13,400 in 3DMark03 (in my E6750 C2Duo the same card only gives a score of 15,200) so most of the 3D power is in the graphics card rather than the processor.
My 9800GT (which is really only an 8800GT renamed) gets a 3DMark03 score of 33,300) in my C2D E6750 machine.
I would expect an 8800GT to perform really well for gaming. I run a 22" widescreen at 1680x1050 with the 9800GT and it is fantastic when playing games like Counter Strike or Day of Defeat.

ok thanks for the info
