You can upgrade to the lovely 24" UltraSharp™ Wide Digital/Analogue Flat Panel (2407FPW) for just £237.93 which makes the pc very cheap if you were afer one anyway

One question are all these inspiron models have the built-in bluetooth as is, or do I need to add the bluetooth keyboard and mouse option?

Edit: Freudian slip there thx mike

This is a Dimension not Inspiron and no it doesnt have bt built in, usb dongles are cheap

Nice find, that machine doesn't appear to show up on the home store on the dell site, it does show on the small bussness store but thats ex-vat where as going though that link the price includes vat, oh well dell seemed happy to accpet my order :thumbsup:


I just bought the tower without the monitor.etc as I want it to replace my current pc

only thing i want to change is that x1300, but reading the dell forums it should take a 8600GT with no trouble so i might buy one at somepoint

Hopeing to put my 7800GT from my other computer in if i can find a power feed for it, people over at the dell forum seem to say people have put them in there without many problems using the stock psu :w00t:


(well apart form some off the later e520's don't have ANY molexes so plugging it in is a bit difficult if its the psu with 1 molex (they say use a Y splitter into 2 molex to pci-e adaptor, which works fine for the 7800 and 8600GTS,)

Although the psu is only 305w people at the forums seem to suggest dell give out its sustained load rating rather than peak unlike most others and the reports of the 7800/7900/8600 cards working are coming from people who've actually done it.

I ordered one of these just in case its the one with 0 molex connectors on it.

although mine a bit of a long card so it might not fit, hope it does!

Anyway it shouldn't make a bad PC for running games once the gfx card is upgraded.

I'd usally custom build but the pricing of the dell ment it was worthwhile to just buy and it saves me the hassle of putting it together (im lazy :giggle:)
