Very good price for a Core i7. Worth paying an extra £10 for the 640GB drive I would have thought.
Don't be tempted to go for the 4GB RAM option upgrade though - Core I7 works best on tri-channel memory (multiples of 3 DIMMs). Going to 4GB means using dual-channel memory. If you want more than 3GB go for the 6GB option.

EDIT - also worth paying an extra £50 for the 23" monitor if you can afford it.

Super hot from me, shame i can' remove the monitor to reduce the price even further

Put it on Ebay. You'd easily get £50-60 for it brand new. Would knock the price right down

wow hot deal very tempted esp if you can get extra %5 off quidco too!

only thing to worry about is intels plans for the socket type seems a bit unknow if the 1366 sockets are discontinued with the new 1156 taking over?

I would sooner throw it in the bin than give it away at that sort of price! :-(

People on here pay 90% of new for second hand bodged kit all the time!

I am with you on that... it would be a shame to spoil it for want of that bit extra! :-)

Over the years I have built and bought machines with the intention of upgrading the processor later when prices fall, and I think I only ever did it once, that was ages ago so I don't worry about it now, by then, I will probably be drawn by some altogether new setup that will be on the market! :whistling:

agree with nihcaj, by the time you decide to upgrade 1.5 to 2 years they'll have all new processors, memory, gpu etc. Always get a pc only if you really need it

No free upgrade to Windows 7?

I've ordered this system but am slightly confused regarding the free upgrade offer to Windows 7. There was no mention of this on the order site, however I picked the Studio XPS 435MT link from the Dell Windows 7 Update Option Program site www1.euro.dell.com/con…dhs.

To me this means my desktop should be eligible for the free upgrade.

Can anyone confirm this?

Thanks

Intel's plans for the socket aren't unknown - the 1366 socket remains the top end enthusiast socket and 1156 is a more mainstream one. Next up for the 1366 socket are six core processors.

So you're annoyed because you mistakenly believe 1366 is a dead socket and now you're annoyed because it isn't...make your mind up. Intel's prices are extremely competitive given the performance they offer, the six core parts are going to be high end which means pricey, nothing artificial about the price of such a sophisticated processsor.
