    looking for new pc but have very small budget can anyone tell me if either of these are good deals or even find a better one for around this price…jsp?BV_SessionID=@@@@0788467473.1185381963@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccfkaddliekfhdicflgceggdhhmdgmk.0&page=Product&sku=704391&fm=undefined&sm=undefined&tm=undefined…C12


    The Dell one most liekly if you get rid of the Warranty and make it 2Gb of RAM

    If you need decent graphics just buy a card and plug it in yourself


    Every now and again Aldi come out with some really impressive deals on base unit PC's. Their next one is out on Thursday 2nd August, and they usually fly off the shelves. Its a little more £399.99 than you wanted to spend, but worth it I think


    There is a full advert in this months computeractive


    Ah a Medion PC from Aldi

    I'd rather stick my balls in a vice and tell my girlfriend she's fat

    The Dell is a pretty good deal.

    Goes as low as £188 delivered, if you reduce support and remove monitor.
    (provided you have a monitor you can still use).

    Would be tempted to take the £35 upgrade for the x1300 pci-e card.
    (dedicated graphics card always better than onboard)

    Might be a better idea to get it with XP installed
    E-value code for that is 305-D07C12XP

    If your set on Vista then you will want to get the extra 1GB ram for sure.

    The various Dell deals and evalue codes are listed here :

    Is this a good system then?

    AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4400+ Windows XP Professional 19" Wide TFT E198WFP 2048MB 250GB 256MB ATI® Radeon® X1300 Pro 16 X DVD +/- RW £387

    or was considering

    AMD® Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5000+
    Genuine Windows Vista™ Home Premium
    1024MB 667MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM [
    256MB ATI® Radeon® X1300 Pro PCI Express graphics card

    maybe if i phone dell they might change vista for xp

    If your budget id up to £400ish then you should look at the C2Duo vostro.…9-t

    Downgrade the service and maybe upgrade the graphics to x1300.
