Doesnt seem to be a graphics card in the bundle price.

Cant have everything in life

You should point out that you need to assemble this yourself...its not pre-assembled by Scan. Also, its coming up as £623.99 for me.

What's the individual value of all these parts?

And your OS ... people always seem to forget the OS.

you need to add up an OS and and decent graphics card other wise a decent desktop for the price heat added

Regardless of lacking a GPU (although the new sandy bridge cores have in-built GPU don't they?) and OS, this seems to be a great price for the bundle.

If you cant afford an OS use ubuntu? or use the key from your current desktop?
Also its not hard to put this all together and get a graphics card..... is it really???

They may have an on board gpu but if the motherboard doesnt have a connector to plug your monitor into then its not going to work.

I'm not knocking the bundle as it has some great components but seeing as they have included everything you need on the hardware side other than graphics card it may make people order it thinking they have everything they need to build the machine only to find out they have to buy something else.

The people who would buy this would only be someone like yourself anyway as it states on the site (this combo is not supplied pre-assembled, but as individual components). Therefore the people that would be interested would have to know how to put a computer together. I understand what you are saying though as some people may not know this, however this is not intended for a standard user.
