Expensive, don't think it's worth £500 these days..
Think everyone's missing that this has a 512gb pcie ssd and a 1TB HDD when you actually click through to the link.

Seems like a pretty good deal to me, especially with the piece of mind of a 3 year warranty. Assuming power supply can take a GPU this could be a real bargain!
This more expensive, but better.
AlphaSync Core i5 GTX 1660 Super 16GB 2TB HDD 240GB SSD Gaming Desktop PC
but the gpu iis included. Not sure on power supply mind. I think you might need a bit more wattage.

Seems like a good value desktop for basic home use
Should we be getting a ssd drive at this price point?

This day and age an SSD should be in all PC's especially with cloud storage etc don't need 1tb storage for home use.

Cold from me, no SSD and integrated graphic card. You can have a lot more for this price.
Not a buy,ive just bought a HP refurbished PC for home use off Ebay for £124.I5 4th generation 128 SSD drive. W10 pro.
Very good benchmark for the CPU cpubenchmark.net/cpu…414 That's at 2.90GHz, the processor can be Turbo boosted to 4.10 GHz

I don't think you can compare the two fairly. Your comparing 4 gen to 9 gen. One has been used, and has 3 months warranty max. This has 3 years. Thats got be worth 100

I doubt this will be any good for gaming. I cant find any info on the pc and its otherboard. So I doubt you be able to put a good gpu. From looks of things it probably be to small to fit a gpu in. If it has a gpu slot

Looks like they added the SSD after I posted the deal. It says 1 TB and 512 GB SSD. May be it includes both now.
Anyone know what motherboard this’ll have, and whether it’ the PSU is likely to handle a decent GPU?
The CPU and the fact it has an old-fashioned optical drive are good selling points for me, but I’d need a separate GPU for video editing.

Will this play crysis?

Haha. Yeah. I think it’ll handle Crysis

I don't know much about computers and this may not be much good for gaming etc, but for a home computer that people just want to surf the net, and look at YouTube etc, £500 for a PC with 16GB RAM, ITB Hard Drive, and an 512GB SSD, seems pretty good to me.

Migration between drives isn't that much of a deal given how SSD manufacturers offer free migration software (often cut-down Acronis software). Admittedly though, I have just spent days watching my PC rebuild from backup after a drive error!
Initially thought it was an American-style refrigerator!

Heated.

Its 4gen thats ancient. I wouldn't bother. Its 7 years old.


4th gen aren't that slow. Some example HP i5 4th gen on ebay (from around £90):
ebay.co.uk/sch…=15
The i5 4570 has a 5147 CPU Mark. This offer's i5 9400 has a 9552 CPU Mark. So the CPU is nearly twice as fast, but for most games, graphics cards would the bottleneck.

worth around £450 without windows

I like that hot-swap feature. It's really rare to see that on non-server machines, unless you actively put a hot-swap bay it one of your optical drive bays. On this machine, does it get in the way of putting a full size graphics card in though, with the location it is in?
Can we add graphic card in this?
Good deal with hassle free warranty - Heat added.

Don't think you'll get near this price on parts alone - plus here you get a decent warranty and legit Windows.
Looks decent enough for the money, but would prefer a Ryzen CPU. No option to upgrade the memory further down the line might be a drawback if you plan to throw a GPU in it.
This doesn't make much sense. Why spend £500 on a PC with such an expensive CPU and 16GB of RAM when it doesn't have a graphics card and there's not even any way of knowing if it will take one, let alone what the power supply is.

I guess most basic tasks don't need a dedicated graphics card. The laptop I use for my photo editing (Lightroom/Photoshop) and some video editing doesn't have a graphics card.

True, but basic tasks don't need a six core £150 CPU or £60 of RAM either.
Great value pc Evan if try build your own to this specification your looking at about 650/700 put in that 3 year warranty this bargain.

I use my 5th generation i5 for almost everything, photo shop and windows video editing, does it without graphics card and some basic gaming, this still good value and not everyone needs a graphic card

That's my point though. If you're just after a PC for basic tasks a £140 reconditioned ex-office machine will do exactly the same job and not be noticeably slower for most things. Yeah it wouldn't have a warranty, but you could buy another two and still have spent much less.

I know what your saying I sold of lot of refurbished i5 4th gen, dell 3040 desktops, hp Pro desk, just install ssd and just as fast plus these ex business machines are reliable and tested. But for some if they have the money this still good for new machine
Took the plunge with this - Won’t be using it for gaming (maybe some emulators for old consoles) but main use is generic home, transferring, web browsing on big screen in living room. It’s connected to 75” 4K TV and the display and resolution is amazing.

Start very very quickly and is literally silent. Took some pics below if helps anyone but I don’t regret purchase, it’s amazing and decent price!

For the specifications you can't go wrong, is there anyway you could take the side lid off, want to see if there is a graphics card slot

Yeah this supports graphics slot the motherboard is a h310 wildly available for around for £60 that's good for future replacement needs, you could add graphics card in the future.
Has anyone checked inside to confirm for definite that one could fit a graphics card? One that's good enough for relatively modern games, even if not played at best possible quality (ie for my teenage son, who enjoys games but is not a hard-core gamer demanding the absolute best!). I see comments that it should take one, but also comments about possibly the hot-swap feature getting in the way. I'd really appreciate it if someone who has this, or knows about it, could confirm for definite that it'd be possible! Thanks.
