This is a great deal!

The spec of the machine alone is enough for any home user, especially with the 3 year warranty.

Sure, the processor isn't the latest generation but it's quick enough for anyone but the hardcore gamer

The processor is great if used with the right components. In this case its just a budget system with a decent processor. If you were building yourself you could match price, take into consideration that Dell gets discount for purchasing in bulk, i dont see it as a "Great deal"

Looks like a sweeet deal!

Seems good to me, i just wish they would bring back the XPS 420 for £529 with a 8800 gt card in !

Not with an operating system you can't, you may be able to get the price of the components close to that price, but not with OS and delivery etc included. Feel free to post your attemps!

No offense, but now your just being silly.

Do you take into consideration that Nike only pay 3p an hour for sweat shops to make thier "top of the range" footware?

Of course you don't, otherwise they wouldn't be the biggest selling Trainers in the world...:whistling:

Priced earlier with an OS, its totally doable

powerful unit

No way! This is perfect for a hardcore gamer. Put a Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme heatsink with a 120mm Scythe S-FLEX 1900RPM, lap the heatsink - first check if it's concave :p. Now games that are coming out for next generation, are surely going to support multi-cored CPUs. As now FSX is and Crysis - taking full use of those cores!

This is a great deal for the price, also the 3yr warranty. But building one would be more fun :thumbsup:.......if you know what your doing :roll:

God I really want a new Dell PC so I can play games like Gears of War and Halo 2. But I want one with a 8800GT in it but on dell they cost to much. Anyone know of a good Dell Desktop PC witch is good for games and with a 8800GT in it and able to pay for it monthly instead of all in one go.

Is there anyway to replace that graphics card and ask Dell to put an 8800GT for extra cost.

Yes, Phone them and they may do it

Good deal - Im thinking of getting the Vostro 410 - Cant build one to that spec for the price!

If Dell are asking too much for the 8800GT then just install one yourself and put the HD 2400 Pro on ebay.

I can't seem to remove the monitor, can someone tell me where the option to do this is?

I dont know why you would want to do that. You are looking at roughly £200 on to the price of that machine with Dell putting in an 8800GT for you. They charge horrendous prices for any kind of 8800 GFX card.

This is a decent spec PC for a deskop user only. Its not even a decent mid range gaming machine and has been said earlier you couldnt build this machine yourself for the same money but you could for less money no problem whatsoever.

Please remember if you elect to put an 8800GT in yourself you will need to upgrade the PSU as well because it will likely be that the PSU it comes with wont be able to handle it.

can not take off the monitor has anyone succeded

Cool if this machine can be built for less money no problems then I think people should post up some build lists.

It would be good for others to make a choice to build there own or not.

Counting it quickly in my head I feel there may be a struggle to build your own at this price.


So come on post up your build lists, lets see if a better spec can be done for the same price :thumbsup:

Hi Guys,

For the peps who are looking at a similiar spec but with a 880gt card, i bought the following last week, including the cash back from quidco it works out at 486 or so, not bad. I priced up something similiar from scan and it worked out a lot more so you cant really go wrong with dell

Goodluck

nice job looking around, but although the GFX card is better you havent included heatsink & fan with the CPU, is there free delivery with OCuk or is that extra (same q with vista seller) or any type of warrany if it goes "squiffy"
Ive built my own desktops in the past and enjoyed the experience, but for the idea of (probably) saving 2 or 3 quid id rather let someone else do it and have some form of warranty!

Go its your turn, remember the hard drive :-D

Give iz yer list

I think this deal is now over as you can't take the monitor off :?

Next best I can see (]using PC Checker here) is this Insipron 530 ST for £429 (D065S09) but this only has base warranty (12 months), a dual core processor (although the e8300 is damn fine) and has a better HD 2400 XT (256mb) graphics card.

Ev0lution;2372686

And how much is that including postage? Overclockers seems very reluctant to tell you so it's bound to be extra.

And another £55 for the operating system?

"Here you are sir - this car is cheaper than that one."
"But it doesn't have any wheels!"
"Minor detail - it costs less. Do you want it or not?"

The challenge still stands...

Thats exactly why I cant be arsed to build another one, not when Dell can do it cheaper and with a warranty etc...

Oh dear it seems I forgot to add an HDD and I had one all picked out too...:oops:

The point I was trying to make in this thread isnt that Dell dont do a good deal when you get one but the fact that they charge you an absolute fortune to upgrade what are essentially cheap components if bought separately online.

The GFX Card in that machine was an insult for the rest of the spec. Its a bit like having a Ferrari with a Ford Fiesta Engine in it.

Its impossible to think that the PSU in the Dell would have handled an 8800GT so the notion that this could have been bought and the GFX card changed without a PSU change as well is fanciful in the extreme considering that you need roughly 200w of power when its at load.

As for building it yourself? I have built every PC I have ever owned and I wouldnt have it any other way. My current rig cost me £1600 and it would easily cost £2500 on the Dell XPS site.
