This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Another purchase from an eBay retailer I keep an eye from time to time.

This time it's for a compact gaming pc. Price starts from £139 with 500gb hdd and and 8GB ram but there's various options you can select.

Can add a 480gb SSD for £40 and a GTX1050ti for another £100 so for less than the price of an xbox one x you're getting a capable little machine that does more than play Minecraft

Be perfect for a small room or my plan is to hide it in the TV cabinet as a HTPC/ games console.

Could come in handy for a Christmas present?

Windows 10 comes pre-installed as well

Any idea if this would meet minimum requirements for Oculus rift S?? I have a Quest and see they are bringing in the PC link to operate it as if it's a Rift.

It doesn't as far as I'm aware. I believe you need a GTX 1060
Ah, ok, thanks very much
misleading title. you're making it look like you can have a 1050ti/480gb ssd pc for £139

Completely agree, voted hot on that basis, def would have voted cold with it 100 quid more
Pretty misleading tbh, i jumped in seeing spec with a 1050ti was going for £139
sort the title out by listinhg what you actually get for the deal price of 139

They've put a blue vinyl wrap on an ex office work PC

Long term lurker. First time poster. Thanks everyone for the money you’ve cost me over the years!

just mailed them about this. They’d also upgrade it to 16gig ram for £20 after purchase as I assume the listing is set up how it is and unable to be changed. With my windows laptop on its last legs, my iMac being used for music production I was thinking of getting this to use as both another musical tool (some virtual synths etc may not be Mac compatible etc) but also as someone above has said, stuck underneath the TV and use it as a steam box and media centre.

Just how good a deal is this? Thanks
lol did he really respray the panels to make it look like a gaming PC LOL and a 10 year old CPU.

It's bad. You really want a decent processor for that use, not a 10 year old CPU in an ex office PC.

Something more modern like this would do it: ebay.co.uk/itm…041
I would stay clear if you plan to game a lot on this. Purely for few reasons:
1. This is small form factor business pc for office use.
2. Small form factor power supplies are limited as example to 250W - and considering its dell own design, no alternatives is available...
3. PSU on this model PC is next to GPU so airflow gap is tiny - this will heat up so avoid hiding it and make sure fans are running fine.

These are great as HTCP, but I would not bother pushing it with heavy gaming. Also for those who understand something about gaming and GPU keep in mind that seller is not listing any info on GPU clock's and ram in it?! Wifi dongle also no info which means cheap crap which will end up in the bin due to poor signal and high ping on gaming...

Cheers for the info fella. Get a bit lost with various generations of processors etc. Thought this might be a cheapish and cheerful solution but sounds as if I need something in the £500 range then. That’s a refurb you’ve linked to at £500 too. So maybe I need to spend more. Ouch

Yeah, you generally pay a lot more for something in ITX size. If it is a full size PC you can pay quite a bit less.

I should add this PC is also a refurb. No way a 10 year old CPU is "opened, never used".

Can't believe how hot this has got.
How does this compare with my, i7-4790,1 gb graphics card and 16gb ram?

I've no idea what your 1gb graphics card would be. But the CPU is a pretty straightforward comparison?

Sounds like I’ll be passing on this then thanks. Smaller would be better but not if I have to pay silly money for it. A big PC can still be stuck behind the TV
