    Is this a good deal?

    web-systems.co.uk/?pa…890

    Just wondering if this is a good deal and whether or not it's good value for money. Ive read that the Q8200 processors aren't very good with overclocking, is this true? Should I ask for the processor to be changed to a Q6600 instead just incase i decide to overclock, as i have read it does it very well. Any reccomendations or advice would be appreciated, or if someone could point me in the direction of a better offer then i'd be a happy chappy. =)

    Thanks All.

    On the Q6600 the heat and power draw tends to go stratospheric beyond about 3-3.2Ghz, I don't know about the Q8200 specifically but on the higher performance chips like the Q9300 they didn't go quite as far but where a lot easier to cool when you got there.

    The system itself looks to be reasonable good value if you know that the builders will use appropriately quiet fans, the PSU will be good quality, the motherboard uses a reasonable up to date chipset etc.

    Looks like i'll be better off with the Q8200 then to be honest, because after paying that much for a computer i dont think i'd want to spend too much more on extra fans to cool it. I think i'll be happy enough with the system as it is without the need to overclock (Hopefully). Thanks for the help .I'm going to give them a call tomorrow and see what brand and spec the motherboard, PSU, and fans are. If anyone could let me know of any similar deals or anything to ask for when enquiring then please let me know. Would it be cheeky to ask for a wireless PCI card? In my opinion computers should come with one as standard. Thanks.

    Cheap wireless cards are only a tenner these days so I'd go ahead and push for one.
