Its not a bad price at £500 but there is no way this ever sold for £1100!
No disrespect but its a budget gaming pc.
300w psu and 8GB of ram.
I think at £500 its about spot on

Damn you! How can I not buy it now, I don't even need one! Must resist!

Hopefuly this wont be like the Dells I have owned; customised BIO that wont let you upgrade, customised mobo that you cannot get the full specs for, custom sized PSU that you cannot upgrade... the list goes on.

Dont get me wrong, they are well specc'ed and put together, just a PITA a couple of years down the line.

No Sir! If you are up early enough and you spot a bargain like this it is your moral duty to purchase it!

At £500 it's a very good deal, you wouldn't get these parts for cheaper separately.

Maybe, but the graphics card is over £200 on it's own and that's if you can find stock.

Fair comment but how some people are going on about this deal anyone would think it had a 1080 in it!

If you add up the price of the Graphics card, Motherboard, 300w Power supply, and CPU, then it is already over 500. So you get the TB HDD, 128GB SSD, RAM, case, DVD/RW, Windows 10 etc for free.

Good price but you would need to replace the PSU for any kind of VR. So add maybe £50 .

Excellent price. It was a little overpriced to start off but these specs for under 500 in a tidy little box is a very good deal for someone looking for a medium-high gaming experience. RX480 is a very good card and the 7400 is not too shabby either. Great find. Heat

Not for one of the new Mixed Reality headsets - this spec will give you a great experience without any changes to the configuration IMO

Great value, especially if you don't build your own pc and would be perfect for the average teen.

This is proper hot deal. Cracking little PC for 500 squideroons. Excellent find

Perhaps a stupid question but how well would this compare to a PS4 Pro? Take like for likes, Witcher 3, Fallout 4, Rocket League etc?

Great price but it turns out I would have no need for this. RX 480 is about the same speed as my GTX 970.

Well done op that is a great price and would snap it up if i needed it.

Put it through a power consumption calculator
I have built my own PC for VR using an RX 480 but with an AMD FX 9590 so mine is of course much more power hungry. Still think you will see some performance hit with that PSU at 300w.

I would think the load would be more around 400.

I used to love my 970 but this main deal has a better CPU and a 128 GB SSD too.

Great price but that power supply is way under-powered to the point of concern, a system with those specs needs ideally a 450w minimum.

Thanks for the heads up OP, purchased. Heat added.

I've had a Dell XPS 8300 for 6 years, all the parts are completely standard and upgradeable. Unless it's a unique form factor or something, Dell haven't used proprietary parts for years.

I'd prefer to have a look at the internals of the case before I purchase... want to see how easy it would be to upgrade the power supply.

Nice price indeed for the spec! Almost tempted over building my own to replace my i7 920, GTX770 build...

Bought, Topcashback too, thanks OP

Does anyone know if it’s possible to reserve at currys? Could get a £499 card for £479 through work but it would take a day or two to arrive.

Tempted to get this as an upgrade to my HP i7-4790, but it might not be much of an upgrade...

It would be a downgrade CPU-wise.

I believe this: drive.google.com/fil…iew is the PSU that comes with it. If so standard ATX PSU should fit in the case, however you might want to have a modular/semi modular PSU, depending on how much room do you actually get in the case.

Wow, hot! I really hope this doesn't go out of stock by the time I get back

Bought. Cheers OP

This system sports an Odense 2-k motherboard with H170 chipset. The main limiting factor with this chipset is that only 2 DIMM sockets mean if you want to upgrade the RAM you will have replace the existing sticks rather than just add more.

RX-480 seems to offer similar 1080p performance to the GTX 1060.

Looks pretty sweet too!

RX 480 is roughly comparable to the 970 GTX, but with the RX 480 you get a slightly faster CPU and a 128GB SSD.

That said, I'm not as enthusiastic as others seem to be; it's only a 4GB RX480, so is only really worth ~£150. (though you can't actually buy it for that price in the current inflated market)

The 1070 deals were better value.
