Thanks for the clarity on that, wonderful thing about DigDug and Missile …Thanks for the clarity on that, wonderful thing about DigDug and Missile Command is I do not have to worry about the refresh!!Reason I asked, is surely ((other than the rate)) the game play would more enjoyable on a higher pixel, bigger size screen for less/equal £ for gamers ((putting aside the awful ping rates etc)) playing stuff?Having seen an abundance of these gaming spec monitors ((obviously not running superchunkmegaping speeds)) it would be clearer to see what you are doing on 4k / 5k / 8k as opposed to squishing it all into a squashed 1440p or less one!! That is interesting matt, so even though gamers want the best of the best, they are using a resolution that a 4k uhd can better by over 3 times? Would it not just jump to 240Hz and above for 4k / 5k ones this year & next, save having to play and squint as the screen is only 24" big ? Thanks for the info by the way.



The bigger the screen the more area you have to look to see someone shooting at you.

I use a large screen for work and a 24" at 144Hz for playing games.

The decision for most competitive pc gamers is 1440p 165Hz versus 1080p …The decision for most competitive pc gamers is 1440p 165Hz versus 1080p 240Hz. We should see 1440p 240Hz later this year too which would be the perfect middle ground for those that play fast paced shooters. This Alienware screen is definitely geared toward a very niche audience in that respect with it's 1080p resolution, most would be happier with the higher 1440p resolution and added desktop real estate for sure.2160p/4k and 120Hz will be hitting the market soon (including nvidia's bfgd screens), but they'll all have pretty hefty early adopter price tags to boot. My hope is those screens will allow you to run at a higher than 120Hz refresh rate below 4k resolution, since higher Hz will always be better depending on the panel type (more fps/hz = less input lag = more responsive mouse), but that hasn't been confirmed.I suppose it depends on who's buying and for what purpose!

Input lag/response time and peripheral vision will be crucial factors. …Input lag/response time and peripheral vision will be crucial factors. Albeit, not as important as refresh rate. The sweet spot for gaming atm is 27” 1440p 144hz until 4k 144hz monitors are widely available. 1080p 240hz are for the very hardcore gamers who prioritise framerate above everything else.

Sony Vaio are about the only laptop that are built to the same quality as MSI but i think Sonys are over engineered as some small parts are held down with 4 screws whereas 1 would easily do.Thats my 2 peneth worth mate, Good luck


MSI Gaming laptop builds are awful (and Acers). Had a high spec £2k MSI 980m Skylake that was advertised as having “ future upgradable graphics” that they reneged on 6 mths after releases this model cos’ they didn’t do there research to find they couldn’t upgrade to 10 series. Was a main factor I (and others) bought that model. Forgave them and bought another £2k MSI Kabylake 1070 laptop that constantly overheated after less than 3 mins of gaming. Returned and got refund. Now got awesome ASUS ROG laptop that runs cool without issues.

Might have to do some more research on the 3xs or a pc specialist model.

This is anything other than outdated. I had it from day it was launched. Also had the previous R1. It is small and compact, much powerful than most of the Nuc' s that sell for more.

Heads up to anyone who bought a laptop after seeing this deal. There is now a 12% code that works on pretty much everything over £799. I bought the £1200 Inspiron (with GTX 1060) on Friday, and it got delivered Saturday.

This morning, the code reduced the same laptop to £1055. I'm just off the phone with Dell Customer Care and they have offered me a £120 refund. It's only a 10% refund, however I insisted on 12% as the current offer advertises, otherwise I would return it. She wouldn't budge from 10%, so I went ahead with the return. Called her bluff all the way through to the end, but then bottled it and just took the 10%.

Good luck guys. Phone number is 0800 587 1456.

They have some unique models, the Alienware 13 R3 for instance with OLED display. Sure it's heavy, but the other computers with an OLED display that leap to mind are tablet things with 4GB of RAM (double it, double it again, then we'll talk) or a Thinkpad which doesn't include a GPU but costs a grand more than the Alienware.

All I would say, the Xbox one x is getting excellent reviews and is very …All I would say, the Xbox one x is getting excellent reviews and is very similar to a pc, so it is worth considering over a mid range pc like this.




Thing is though it's not similar to a PC at all. The only simularity it has to a mid-range system is it has a GPU. However, Unlike the mid-range computer the XBOX has a potato for a CPU. Which is what lets the XBOX and the PS4 Pro down. Am not having ago at you. But even the steam machines are better than an Xbox One X. Sure the Xbox can play some games at native 4K mostly at 30FPS or lower.

But for me personally I would rather pay the extra £100 for this system (student discount). I can then play the best version of 3rd party games at 1080p/1440p 60FPS and allow my TV to up scale to 4K. Enjoy the many PC exclusives. Play 20+ years worth of PC games if I wish to. Play older console emulated games. Play Microsoft first party games like Forza, Crackdown, Sea of Thieves. No Xbox live to pay for ect the list goes on.

I have a PC,PS4 Pro and a Switch. Am not a PC elitist who refuses to play anything under 60FPS. However, I have the likes of Destiny 2 on both the PS4 Pro and PC. They did a very good graphically for the PS4 version. But it does not have a patch on the PC version mostly due to the PC version being 60FPS and the PS4 Pro and XBOX being 30FPS.

Things to remember about a box like this are that the motherboard/PSU will …Things to remember about a box like this are that the motherboard/PSU will likely be proprietary, so can be an issue if you want to replace either of them later on.The parts alone are easily worth £550, so this should be a great buy if you can bribe a NUS card holder with some cheap pizza.




I used to say that, because historically they were, but I have been told by users of newer desktops and towers, that they use standard parts in them now; no more odd sized PSU's that can only be replaced by an over-priced Dell spare, or motherboards where all the makers ID have been removed, so you dont have a clue who made it or what spec it is.

This seems decent for the money, even with a scratched case - which wouldnt bother me as long as the innards were OK.

I picked up a Fridge Freezer a few years ago; it had a 4cm scratch on the right side panel - £150 off the £400 RRP as it was returned and classed as seconds.

Bought! glad i didnt buy the argos deal acer predator now!


A bit of an advise. If you install dell supportassist app then you can check for newest drivers and full spec and also for the Dell warranty expiry date. My was some time in Jan 2018. I contacted dell warranty people and managed to get my dell warranty extended to Jan 2019. Worth a try...

Every review of a 240hz monitor I have watched says the difference between 144/165 and 240hz is very negligible. I would prefer the extra resolution.


Thats true. I didn't buy this one. Opted for a 1440p 24 inch one with 165hz for £360.

However I think the design here is nice and in some cases it will complement a setup more than the bog standard styling of other monitors. I guess it's down to personal choice.

This is 1920x1080, so it's a bigger monitor than the 2560x1080 25" screens.

Maybe people are anti Alienware and 240hz or your other deal is directly comparable to this. I think this is a great deal i'm just undecided to go for this or a 144hz monitor and would really like g sync as i've a 1060 graphics card.
The description/bullet points on amazon states Gsync, Guessing a lazy copy and paste description, If it was the G sync version i'd have purchased this lol.

If it were 80% efficient it'd draw up to 1250W from the wall. 250W power draw? Odd, I'm seeing 180W in places like this tom's hardware review of power consumption at the PCI-E socket and extra power connectors. It does spike a lot higher than that, but there's some leeway in dell's PSU, plus most good ones can supply about 100W more than their rating for short bursts so I wouldn't worry.



Yes, that was my bad in a rush, a 460W PSU will (should) output 460W DC-side. But personally, and maybe this is just me, but I try not to push my PSUs at full load above about 80-90% maximum output and Dell is cutting it fine here. I think I've been looking at the 'Ti' version...

Absolutely agree with you on the pairing - the 1080 struggles with 4k as it is, and will only get worse over time. QHD gives a bunch of headroom with 1070/1080, and gsync is so good!

When so many people get so excited by reductions in weight of fractions of a kilo, I'd say the 17 weighing a kilo more than the 15 is pretty substantial though

Nice find op, heat added.

How is the thermal cooling on the AW 15? My recent AW 17 had to go back for full refund from the outlet after 6 months because of excessive heat which basically killed the GPU. After many repairs of GPU and mobo's, I was offered the full refund which was fortunate. Great laptop and would like something to replace it - this seems a good price.

Hi. Its the same one as mentioned above, the ASUS-GL702VT-GC018T. All I did was select the i5,1060 option.
Here is the link: https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-GL702VT-GC018T-17-3-Inch-Gaming-Laptop/dp/B01LWJPHNO?th=1
I remember it being a little lower in cost as it now comes to 150 pounds more. But still worth it for the 1060 especially as the i5 is still a very good mobile gaming CPU. As Laptopmedia say:
"As you can see from the tests above, the Core i7-6700HQ has an edge over the Core i5-6300HQ when it comes to raw performance. Synthetic benchmark tests indicate around 30-40% better performance and this might be solely on the CPU clocks and the Hyper-Threading feature. But when it comes to gaming performance, both chips perform great. The chances are that you won’t be needing the higher-end Core i7-6700HQ processor for gaming.

So at the end of the day, the Core i5-6300HQ might be the better choice for gaming, but if you are looking for more computational power for CPU-intensive tasks and work, the Core i7-6700HQ will be the way to go."
