Nice find. Great package for the price. Am sooooo tempted.

The monitor won PCAdvisors Gold Award in Feb this year. pcadvisor.co.uk/rev…320 and cheapest one I can find is £130.

12 USB ports!!!!! :w00t: I see they are also offering Win7 64-bit for an extra fiver!!! Total bundle seems a great price to me but you'll get the 'Oh it would have been a good deal if it only had a Blueray!' ANY computer system (unless you have unlimited funds), will have a compromise. The lack of Blueray and the 500gig Hard Drive are probably the main ones with this system at this price.

what happened to the i hate mesh crew that was on my thread?


I remember a few of those as well....

I got my current system from Mesh and had no real problem. They sent the wrong monitor but offered to change it a week later, but my impatience took over and I said I'd keep it. No difference appart from colour so didn't grumble.

The fact is Mesh have been knocking out some stonkers lately so well done to 'em. It's the CS that seems to hack aa lot of people off!

"256MB NVIDIA GeForce GPU with VGA / DVI/ HDMI - Integrated Graphics (SMA)" A shame for that price and Quad core CPU

So what we talking here could this cope with games or is it more of a general purpose PC? The comment about the Graphics does not inspire me too much but then again i dont know what it means.

And what are peoples problems with Mesh?

Looks easy enough to reconfigure on the site - personally, I would go for the 550W case/power supply, if upgrading to a discrete graphics card, especially so if adding anything else such as Blu-ray, car readers and other bits.

Normally I would just take the standard RAM, and add some myself as it is so cheap to buy, but I don't know if they are not be too happy about users prising the case open without it affecting warranty - if that is that case, a HD upgrade might be wise now too rather than just adding one later when you eventually need it, as they are not too silly prices.

Looks pretty decent, it is only the dreadful reputation of Customer services that would make me stop & think a bit, but good customer service is not something any company exactly inspires me with :-(

Integrated Graphics will handle old games ok but not much chance with newer games. You would have to upgrade with a graphics card and for that to work you may need a more powerful PSU depending on which card you go for.

The price comes down once you choose the upgrade to win7 and then take off the AV and surge protector.

not a bad price, I assume it's cheaper to build your own?

Never had a mesh PC but as a PC builder this looks like a good deal. You could quite possibly build a similar spec PC with this, but it looks FINE for the money, especially considering there is an OS on there.

If you're thinking of it, i'd say go for it, HOWEVER, if you're into gaming, you may want to replace that graphics card they've put in there.

There is ONE PCI-E port which is fine.

Nice find OP

hmmm , maybe but you'd be very hard pushed. You'd have to buy cheap components to match this price. This PC could handle some games but i'd still recommend buying a graphics card if you're into games

also, the fact you get a 64-bit os is great, so all 4gb will show up. Win7 upgrade too.Very nice offer

I'm looking at getting a new machine in september, just in time for going back to uni. I'm very tempted by this one particularly upgrading to a 24" screen as well :thumbsup:

Would the graphics support HD resolution?

I'm after a new system also, liked the look of this but not keen on the intergrated graphics or naff psu. May look at a quad core dell

From what I've read about the 9950 it gets very hot, it takes more power than the Intel and is not as quick as the Core 2 Quad. Anyone know any better than that? I'm just curious as I was leaning to the new Intel i7 (yes, I know its way more expensive but will surely take a lot longer to be redundant than this?)

My Core 2 Quad Q6600 (2.4Ghz) performs better under most conditions than my 9950. If it was my choice between the two, I would go for the Intel - even though it is slightly more expensive.

You are actually correct, infact, this processor has already been outdated by the new AMD Phenom II range, which I have to say perform much better than the origional phenoms.

the problem with those 'budget-performance pc' is some parts are cheap so they are still able to make a profit from the price
My P4 2.6GHz served me 6 years and last month I built a system with i7 to replace it. During the 6 years, not a single problem happened and its still working as normal! I doubt this will last that long

i wouldnt buy it if it was £200 quid, just search for mesh problems, they are the worst bunch of t o s s e r s ever.

Great price, and if you have no problems with it in the future, then a great buy, but if you do, then bad luck, because mesh after sales service is NON EXISTENT. Once they have their money, they don't want to know.

Iwas going to buy this system because it came top in computer shopper but when it was posted last time their was so many negitives againt mesh i give it a miss and bought the ebuyer extra value system changed psu and added gpu and works brilliant just looking for a 22"-24" screen now.

I just worked it out and this can be built for around £410. That's … I just worked it out and this can be built for around £410. That's including the keyboard/mouse and a cheap Case +300PSU (cuz that's what it is). Not including an OS, either. The expensive bits are the CPU + monitor. The motherboard is actually relatively cheap (around £40).Take in mind, if you buy this system, then it'd be an absolute waste not buying a nice GPU. Then you'll need to pick up another PSU on top of that because if you think a cheap 300W will power it then you are being extremely optimistic! it'll probably only last a few months in the current system as it is. So I'd say add another £150 onto the final RRP (£100 gpu, £50 psu).



As long as your PSU is over £15 it doesn't really make a difference i find. PSU's get a hard time. Everyone says the cheap ones are rubbish but they aren't. I think mine was £30 for 500w and it has been spot on.

It all depends on if your graphics card uses a bucket load of electricity. Alot of the ATI cards do..

why are MESH such an AWFUL bunch?/ I cant buy reading this maybe dell then

Customer service is the problem with mesh, there systems can be great if you know what your getting. I don't see how Dell are much better with their customer service.

Yes good spec but Integrated graphics ruined it..otherwise very good. And only ATI options as well on the graphics.

mesh - never ever again, on my second and their c/s is even worse than the first time.

Not a bad system for the price, but processor is not of the latest Phenom range, and graphics are integrated. Otherwise it's good. Mind you though delivery will take a long time (unless you pay extra to get it in 3-5 days). I ordered a PC off Mesh with standard delivery nearly 3 weeks ago and still haven't received it. They told me their lead time is 10-14 working days. Also, their terms and conditions state that you will not get your delivery less than 6 days after the scheduled date of manufacturing, and in no more than 30 days after payment for your order. Getting on my nerves now! I can't say anything about after-sales customer support as this is my first order with them, but apparently it's crap.

Also, what's up with the Mesh Computers website today? All day I haven't been able to access it. I think it must be down for maintenance or something. But part of me thinks they've done a runner with my money LOL!

People are quick to have a go at this deal but show me some links to deals that are better? Also it has got a great review by professionals.....
