Upgrade the monitor to 20in E2009W WIDESCREEN Black UK/Irish (1680 x 1050) TCO99 DVI-D for free.

If you upgrade the system to cost £499 or more pre vat then you can use coupon code XWKXM0H3KGR$2N to get an extra £50 off the system price. The 5% voucher wont work in tandem though.

Another HOT DEAL!

Good price voted hot.

Got an identical system but with double the storage and an 8800GT instead for the same price as a refurb, bargain though as it comes with a monitor!

hot again.

Excellent Processor - i got mine running at 4.05GHz

Temps at 4.05GHz:

really?

damn that's stupid :roll:

I have this system but with a quad core and 4 HDDs and a Nvidea 8600 GT and use it 16 hours a day every day with a massive workload for website designing, its performed very very well so far (5 months)

Got the 22" version of that monitor at work. Okay for business uses, but it's colour reproduction is only slightly better than Dell's cheapest of the cheap laptop displays (which I also am unfortunate enough to use at work). There are several of the 22" monitors at work, and each one has it's own ideas of what colour, brightness, etc, are. OTOH there are no dead pixels.

Does anyone know if the power supply can be changed?. It's only a 350w with this pc and i was hoping on upgrading the graphics card to 9800 GT(on their site) but i have a feeling this psu won't be enough for that particular graphics card.... Thanks

If you update to a 9800GT that includes a power supply upgrade but it's mad money. You would be better off upgrading it yourself. Well TBH you should build/get built a purpose built system with some upgrade potential.

Hi,
Funny you should say that. I was looking at youtube a couple of hours ago on how to build a pc..but i got scared..lol

PS..you're right about buying the card myself but i was worried about dells power supply. Not sure if its upgradable. I know from what you said they can do it but can i?..hehe..I also read in a forum about their case might not be an ATX case?..I presume ATX cases are larger maybe.

Yes they take a standard power supply. If you can unscrew 6 screws you can change it!
But with the money your looking at a self build would be better if your wanting it for gaming. Much easier than it ever used to be.

It comes to £665 with the coupon so i'm not sure how much a similar setup would cost with a good psu like corsair or emermax
If i could (and had the guts) i'd build one:oops:

PS..I looked at it in the basket with everything added but it doesn't seem to show the upgraded psu and what wattage it is.

Well as the monitor will be around the £100 mark and TBH you'll want a bigger one 22"+ your looking at about £550 on the system. You could do better for the cash and leave scope for upgrades like adding graphics cards via crossfire/SLI.

Yes don't worry about the PSU it will auto upgrade. They wouldn't send you one out that wont cope would they.:thumbsup:

Thanks. I think i'll look around a bit more..maybe watch more vids on utube..I also got confused looking at the different types of 9800 cards..I think some might have more features than others,,,Anyway thanks again:thumbsup:

Just to stir things a little further I think you get better value out of ATI's 4800 series.

Have a look here it may help a little.

I looked at them on a site called nootbook gaming..I was thinking of getting a laptop but one with a decent card would be way over budget for me..Besides, Laptops have more heat issues..Atrractive thing about them is the energy saving aspect....I don;t have one but if i got a HDTV i expect these cards come with the right ports i guess..I dunno if an adaptor is needed on some though,
