Saw the recent Dell XPS 8300 deal and thought I'd post this as an alternative to buying a Dell Computer especially if you don't need a full HD monitor etc.

Btw if you know of a better deal could you please comment as I'm tempted to buy but would rather wait and hear what you guys have to say about it

Very VERY high spec. Sandybridge i7 @ 3.4Ghz , USB 3.0, 16GB RAM, 2TB HDD, only thing it's really missing is an OS and a dedicated graphics card and you could have one beast of a machine!

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A CUSTOM BUILT MACHINE. YOU DON'T HAVE TO BUY IT AS IT STANDS. IF YOU DON'T LIKE A COMPONENT E.G. PSU IT CAN BE CHANGED. JUST CALL AND SPEAK TO THEM OR ARRANGE BEFOREHAND ONLINE UNDER "CONTACT US"

SAME DEAL DIFFERENT CASE (extra 2 quid):

Good core spec but worth remembering that this has only discrete graphics and no blu-ray drive so a different beast from the Dell machine really.

That's true prob why it's priced quite low imo. I'm looking into getting just a tower that'll last me a while and not a multimedia machine really so I thought I'd post it up and see what people think or whether there's a better deal.
I just priced up how much I paid for mine which I bought and upgraded a bit over past 4 years... paid £500 for amd 550 (dual core), good mobo, 4gb ddr2, 1.5tb HDD + 750GB HDD, 6850 GPU, 400w Corsair PSU, dvd, and case.. this deal kicks the ass of my computer lol.

hahahaha what do you think the best gpu for this would be? nvidia or ATI?

I know they have an online store on eBay. They've also got a landline number: 01322 413162. Could always just give them a call.......
Looks like they're on Amazon and Ebay.....mmm
Sandybridge is old hat!
Latest processors are Ivybridge
They have good rep on Amazon 4.8 out of 5 and 99.9% on Ebay

They have been potsed on here a few times as well hotukdeals.com/dea…com

Mobo looks pretty basic only 1 PCI express 16X but they don't list the actual specs.

If you borrow whelpin's time machine you could get your comment in first!
My river is full of bridges, Tyne, Swing, Millenium, can't say I've seen an Ivy yet though...
Don't buy it:
it is not a horrible machine for the price, but I can guarantee that PSU will not hold any good graphics card. It will be a waste, unless you change PSU and buy GPU, which will bring price up by at least 200 Pounds (assuming you buy a GPU for gaming).
For 750 pounds you can get quality parts (decent case, good motherboard, quality PSU/RAM)
I bought an external hard drive off them 5 or 6 years ago from their ebay store. They were fine.

I'm sure if you were to call them up and ask them what the best or most suitable graphics card to buy for this desktop would be you would surely be able to get a good graphics card that would match the PSU for under £200???

Just seen a Sapphire ATI Radeon HD6670 1GB DDR5 for just over £70 on their website.

Would that be a suitable graphics card to fit in this computer? I'm sure If you were to call them and have it fitted in beforehand you could probably get it for less.

and here I was yhinking this was a desktop

and the psu isn't mentioned in the specs, I'd hazard a guess at it being a cheapo no brand which to make it sound better than it is will prob be something like a 700w, but even at that wattage it wouldn't be good enough to handle a cheap £20 graphics let alone a £200 card

lol sorry I'm on my laptop wiriting these comments and laptop just stuck in my head. I'm gonna give them a ring tomorrow and speak to them and see what they say about whether the card I mentioned would work effectively in this DESKTOP and see what they say

Sure it has an impressive cpu, 2TB storage and 16GB RAM (OTT!), but it will have the same H61 chipset as the Ebuyer Zoostorm PC. So upgrade cpu +£100, upgrade HDD +£20 (normal prices, lol), upgrade RAM +£30 - it's only worth about £150 more than the other machine in terms of hardware. You are paying £188 for 3 year warranty and a tacky case.



lol the case is quite tacky. See loads of them on ebay. But the other deal with a different case for an extra 2 quid looks a lot better and looks like it would provide better cooling than this one. Btw why would you want to spend £100+ on upgrading an i7 2600. Is it not good enough as it is? Oh and you missed a "0" on the normal priced HDD
Just looking at a few prices from their site

i7 £240
16gb generic ram £60
mobo asrock £66
2TB 5400 Samsung £170

That's £536, so £21 for the rest of the bits whatever make or value

not to mention having it built as well as 3 year warranty.
don't waste money with this junk, build it yourself with better components. don't need the i2600 in most cases, i2500k will be just as good.
I posted the dell XPX 8300 deal the day before yesterday and it's now at the depths of despair at -74. but I still think the 23" monitor, high end graphics card, extra hard drive, Blu-ray and sound card makes it worth the extra £400. Yours is a still good deal for something you can personalise so have some heat.

Thank you These can be modded as much or as little as you want. Like I said in the topic an OS and a dedicated graphics card (which I'm sure this will be able to support) and you've got yourself a high spec gaming machine. A lot of comments have been posted about the PSU.
IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT CHANGE IT. From what I know they do like for like swaps. For example, if this case is worth £30, you can change it for a different one for the same value that you prefer. So hope that helps someone
I have used these before. About 5 months ago. Delivered within 2 days decent company and good customer service.

Agreed. If you ever see a computer you think has a good spec for the price, take a look at what isn't listed. Motherboard and PSU are the most common expenses to spare - and I can speak from experience when I say having a decent PSU is very important. I've always built my own PCs and I used to skimp on the PSU. I got away with it for a while, never buying one that cost more than £30, until one went bang on me. Fortunately it didn't take anything else out with it, but it's a chance I'm not taking again. My next PSU was £120 with a 5 year warranty and £1000 insurance for anything that might break if it fails and it's currently running my fastest, most stable PC to date.
Only a 2600 and not 2600k, no graphics, no or bad psu, so will need to spend a decent amount more, and the mobo isn't up to my desired spec, decent pc but i'm avoiding.
That case is horrendous.

If you need a high spec on a budget, you're better off looking on the Dell Outlet. Bought my current machine (XPS 8300) from there about a month or so ago and it's been great. Cost me £600 for an i7-2600, 8GB of RAM, 2x1TB HDDs and a Radeon 6870. Had a wireless card already installed too.

Arrived in as-new condition with all the normal accessories and still had the protective plastic on the front, you'd never tell it apart from a built-to-order machine.

Holy cack! I've seen people say don't skimp on the PSU . I was looking at the Be Quiet 350W 80 Plus Gold for about £45 thinking it would enough.
without knowing the PSU its difficult to determine if this is a good deal or not. if the PSU cant take a decent graphics card its worthless, no use as a rendering machine (no CUDA support, no GPU processing), no use as a gaming machine, and massively over powered for a standard machine.
if the motherboard is cheap, theres no overlocking, no SLI support, and no SSD TRIM support....
cold, rubbish spec.
would never buy a high end or expensive prebuild...
if you need a cheap tower dells do the trick
if your after a high end gaming machine you generally handpick the parts and build yourself, or you got to a true specialist like overclockers uk and pick from their prebuilds or get on the phone to them and get them to sort out exactly what you want

skimping on psu or motherboard is so stupid, cheap psu can knacker everything
cheap motherboard means other parts are unable to perform to their true ability

also thats one ugly case

altho if this price holds it may be worth it for the hard drive alone at the rate they are rising

I'm impressed you remember. I struggle to remember what I did earlier today.

Could you please elaborate as I'm in two minds about buying this. Cos to me you're gonna struggle to find a spec similar to this at £550ish. Fair enough refurbished dell outlets you'll probably find omething, but as a brand new machine could you tell me where you could get a similar spec desktop for roughly the same price?
Good deal if you have no idea how to build a PC. Bad deal if you do. Very poor choice of case too. (It's like £20 at Eclipse Computers).
