You don't mention whether custom building your own is a viable option or not, being as I've been doing this for over a decade, mostly for myself and family and I just built a i7 box in March and Ive just ordered a AMD X3 core system, I have a general idea of prices, so I'll have a go at price matching that Dell for custom seperates:

Case and PSU: £50
Q8200: £120
Mobo: £50
Asus 512mb Radeon 4350 £25
4gb DDR RAM 800mhz £30
1tb hdd: £55
DVD-RW (I'm sacrificing BD-ROM capability to save £40) £20
KB+Mouse: £20
Acer 23inch Monitor: £137

TOTAL: £507
I expect with a little trimming on Case+PSU and Mobo this can cut down to £460ish

Helpline/support Sacrificed
Standard ATX and Power Supply allowing for easy future upgrade Benefit

Are you in a rush? I expect this could come out at £650ish on a nice deal, depends how urgently you need it.

I meant generally as Dell tend to do deals on occasion, if you can remove the monitor and get it separately I imagine you might save over £100 anyways.

Save £290 (Inc Vat) until 24/06/2009
