I recently bought the same system from Dell outlet for £468, and got £30.99 back from topcash back, so might be worth looking on there

will this be used for gaming if so mabey just bump up the graphics card if not this system should be fine

Have u got the link apples?

its a good price but not amazing. bear in mind that is just a powerhouse cpu, struggle to play top games coming out now i would imagine. But if you are using it to convert videos/etc something the CPU will need a lot of, worth it, if not maybe go for something a bit more all round, wouldnt imagine you need an i7 unless you want heavy encoding tbh.
