Thats a lot of kit for little money!

Hot & welcome bahhumbug!
:thumbsup:

Yep That looks pretty good even though not very computer savvy. Also noticed some pretty good prices generally on suppliers site.

yep not a bad price at all, although i am really not a fan of samsung hard drives, i have had 2 that have both failed with in year

Wish you had found it 3 months ago, would have saved me a bit lol. Thanks, i may just have to get one anyway:!:

Good deal.

Nice first post that, have some heat and some rep

This is good, stick in a 4850 an your sorted,

whats it missing?

]This. :thumbsup:

This one still need a DVD Rom, SATA cables, Monitor, Graphics card (optional), speakers, mouse, keyboard and Windows . Then it's good to go!

Interesting, I have a PC very similar to this about 1.5 years old. I wonder if the minimum processor by now should be a quad core?

Poor PSU - you'll want to upgrade this before installing a HD4850 graphics card.

tommay;3765356

Basically, an optical drive & an OS.

Looks like it comes w/o o/s....an extra £70 plus

Or Linux of course. :thumbsup:

I dunno how good the EZCool PSU is, but a *quality* 400-watt PSU would be fine for most people. I have an E8400, x2 hard drives, 4GB memory, ATI HD4850, 24-port switch, a firewall and 24" monitor and the UPS which they are all plugged in to only takes a maximum of 240 watts from the wall with all Crysis settings set to "High". When doing basic stuff with the monitor on, it all only takes about 120 watts from the wall.

The Ars Technica forum has a few good threads on PSU selection. Personally, I'd only ever get a Corsair or the new Enermax ones (or Seasonic/OCZ/PCP&C etc).

Guess it's luck of the draw, i'm running 7 (across 4 machines) that I've bought over the last 3 years and not hada single fault.

Voted HOT

for this money i have just built:

intel centrino dual core
asus motherboard
2gb kingston 800mhz
250gb seagate hdd
cheap case
200w unbranded psu
dvd-rw LG
card reader
ATI HD 3650 512mb video
:oops::oops:
all from Ebuyer. If only this deal came last week!

Good deal, have had the very same Samsung drive fail on me but they're constantly making revisions the average consumer is unaware of. I've had two more since the first failed and they've been going strong for six months now.

laze

thought this was just ok. EZCool psu is supposedly not very good.

I've never built a pc before. What scares me is flicking the switch for the first time, and it just goes bang. I've swapped hardrives, installed memory, pci cards, even removed my old Athlon T-Bird to do the closing of the L1 bridges for overclocking. I'm still using that cpu today btw, so you see how I am seriously in need of an upgrade. So basically is it really easy or will it end in tears if I gave it a go?

If you've done all those things then you have no probs, the scariest bit is apparently snapping the very tight fitting cpu's onto the motherboard.

That's not a good deal is it?

Or, put it another way - I've about to flog this:
Coolermaster Elite Case
Arctic Cooler 500watt quiet PSU
Q6600 quad-core processor
Geforce 7950 Extreme graphics
Sata II 250Gb HDD
2gb corsair gaming ram
3 quiet fans in it (there's a fan controller as well, but they're that quiet it's pointless so that'll be coming out) (currently runs at 25 degrees)
Lightscribe DVD RW
Wireless MS keyboard and mouse
front USB/card reader
17" Dell TFT monitor
Vista Ultimate

for £325 ish, which knocks this into a cocked hat on everything bar the hard disk size.

Comparing a second hand product that you are selling vs a new deal is probably one of the most stupid things I've seen on here.

This deal is nothing special, you can easily put together a similarly priced yet higher quality component list from competitors.

Not a bad deal, but don't like that PSU brand. I've had a PSU pop so I'm reluctant to trust cheap brands.

Really? The most stupid? What, ever? Are you sure?
And should have said "just built and am selling", so it is new, it's just i've built it.
Does that make it less stupid? More stupid? It's difficult to judge with you, you seem so extreme.
My point was, I've just built a far, far better system than it - with a monitor, O/S and graphics card (ie, a complete system) for less than it would cost to get this system and add those essential items.
Is that alright? You've got me walking on egg-shells here...me...stupid...wait till I tell me mum.

Ourdave, where did you get the parts for that PC from? I'm considering building something similar to replace my current PC but all the shops I was using a few years ago don't seem to be very good any more...

Half and half from Dabs and Ebuyer, think it was processor, mobo, case and PSU from Dabs, the rest from Ebuyer.

The prices do seem to fluctuate quite wildly from day to day though...just keep checking and then pounce when they're at their lowest.

is this gone? Link does not show PC anymore

I'm not up on the exact prices of things, but don't the CPU and OS add up to around £200 alone?

where did you get your stuff from? from a single shop?

JustExtreme;3772238

You built a desktop using a mobile CPU?



yes, and it uses 75W when with onboard graphics card. works great for usual office stuff. with ati hd 3650 it plays all new games on medium graphic settings on high resolution. isnt that just great?

i got a more extreme machine myself which was about 1500£ not too long ago. anyone interested in the full story?

Cool, great idea there!

You said you got it from ebuyer, do ebuyer sell them anymore because I can't find it?

They seem to have a similar offer on - without CPU - at the moment.

there you go mate:
ebuyer.com/pro…259

you might find it cheaper elsewhere. these processors used to be 35£ a few months ago, and together with cheapest msi card (27£) it used to be a smashing bargain. you will find things have changed a bit.

you might also find 15£ 2gb 800mhz kingston memory at play.com
