Is this PC up to 7 hours a day use? Not sure i'd be happy with Zoostorm at my place of work.

I'm sure it'll be fine for you seeing that its only going to be used part time!!

I very much need a new PC tower but am on a very limited budget. I have a good friend who will put an OS onto this machine and probably loads more. So can anyone say if this would be a good deal for me?

I can have the machine on for 12 hours plus in a day and there seems to be issues over the power supply. But for £129, this does seem to be a very powerful machine.

Is that fair to say?

No brainer. Go for it. You can always replace power supply if it ever fails.

It's all down to luck, you could put in a top of the line £250 1.5mw psu and it could fail in under a day, while this could last for 5 years without missing a beat.

It's a bit like cars, you can bu the best handmade car in the world with all the love and care taken. It might still fail, while an old toyota might last 20 years without a major issue.

As long as you are not straining the cheaper PSU it might be fine. It probably has the same warranty as any seasonic/antec etc.

If in the fture you decided to add power hungry cpus and graphics cards and multiple drives etc or clock the CPU, then by all means get a decent PSU with the correct rail voltages and certification.

Would this be alright for my Dad? He's not exactly tech savvy but it's just painful to watch him use a 12 year old machine running Windows XP, so I would just install Windows 7 and Microsoft Office.

Do people really buy these Zoostorm deals? I know they get rated hot but are they actually worth it?

true but if it does fail you better pray it doesn't take the rest of the components with it

damm id love this pay check not in till jan the 15th though I really needed this also any know if this deal is here to stay.

HOT

I wouldn't worry about being too skint to snap one of these up. Definitely value for money on paper though I have no experience of the Zoostorm brand. I'm not Mystic Meg but I am predicting early in the New Year all the Xmas returns to the Littlewood's Usury Empire popping up on bargaincrazy.com for peanuts.

cold not i7

Worth adding a boot SSD drive for the OS. Can get a small one for around £30.

only 15 people have bought this deal so it must not be that good?

If this was an A8 I'd be more interested.

Come on, a case, PSU, motherboard, CPU, ram, DVD burner and a hard drive, built and warrantied for £129 delivered ?

It's hardly worth the bother of building your own.

If you need a gaming or cad/rendering PC, that's a whole different ballgame, and this is in no way suitable.

Anyone got the spec of the motherboard? Depending what you can max it out with i might get one. this is a v hot deal all the same

Looks like it's a Foxxconn A55MX someone mentioned in the reviews. Shame it doesn't have USB 3.0 but at least it has Gbe Lan.

Foxxconn says Dual channel DDR3 1866/1600/1333 x 2 DIMMs, Max. 32GB but Ebuyer product info claims 16GB. Me thinks Ebuyer is wrong here.

This does look good

But I'm thinking after an OS and extra stick of RAM, this will work 180ish. Don't Dell usually come out with desktops for £200ish with a good spec?

Worth waiting..spending that much extra? I'm after a desktop so am interested on people's thoughts

Cheers

An i7 for £129.99, you can't buy an i7 or an i5 processor for that. This looks very reasonable for the price - as is mentioned a decent PSU for an extra £40 still puts it in the 'bargain' category, also a bit of extra RAM and a decent graphics card could speed it up somewhat, would still be under £200. If you are using a PC for office based work this is fine - it isn't a gaming PC.

dem0nx

this is not an i7 or anywhere near close to the performance of one



I think djqcquinn was replying to 'saywhaaat' post (on 1st page) which probably didn't need a reply in a first place, as my 4 year old niece would not say such a stupid thing... :P

Very low power usage, good graphics, cheap and perfect for Internet browsing, email etc. oh and it will run for 12 hours a day no problem... Later on some years past you can easily upgrade the APU (Which is the CPU and GPU inside as one) for a quad core for peanuts.. The bonus is that this APU line will have very good upgrade path for two generations minimum (Trinity and Richland etc)

WOW, Thanks for the Dumbest comment of the week.....

Afraid your wrong aky247s, this is the first generation AMD FM1 chip set and is already outdated, it is not compatible with the superior trinity based FM2 processors or future generations.

This is one of the reasons its a very cheap pc, but it's still a very good deal as you may not be able to buy a new course for it even a year down the line, but the second hand market would be fine. Hot deal

Got one for a relly for christmas when it was £150.

Not too bad, could be a little quicker and would vastly benefit from having a 2nd hard drive.

Suffers from having no output from the HDMI on boot up or until the drivers are installed too.

Is it worth upgrading to this from an old Pentium P4 3.4GHz system with 2GB RAM? I find it very hard to compare CPU perf across different generations and architectures these days.

Also it is rather concerning that you can't do any BIOS changes (or I'd guess even OS installation) using HDMI!

Just to answer my own question, the CPU's Amazon customer review pretty much mirrors my situation, so I think I'll look for a higher spec CPU:

P4 is over 6 years old in tech terms, so yeah would be worth it even in efficiency and running cooler.

Why would you want to use HDMI for updates, am I missing a troll moment?

I've got a zoostorm, good budget base but my lord it's noisy! It runs 2 fans and makes a real racket! After my last HP I thought it was broken when I got it but there are quite a few people saying the same online. Mine runs for 8-12 hours a day though with no problems apart from the ear plugs!

My mother's P4 is sluggish these days so I really wanted a significant speed boost, rather than just an increase in efficiency/cooling.

Also if the BIOS setup isn't visible via HDMI then surely installing an OS using an HDMI display is going to be rather difficult (since you can't select boot device etc.)?
