I'm about to order a PC off of Dell, i thought i'd make a topic to see what you guys think about this and if you recommend anything else.

Intel® Core™ i3 Processor 530 (2.93GHz, 4MB)

Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64bit - English

4096MB Dual Channel DDR3 1066MHz [4x1024] Memory

640GB (7200rpm) SATA Hard Drive

Nvidia ® GeForce G310 512MB graphics card

£479

Thanks in advance

It's pretty good for the price I would say.

What do you do with your computer though?

Do you game or anything or just casual internet sh*t?

Got two monitors, so i need the dedicated graphics card, but i just watch films and Internet really. Want it to last though, 4-5 years. Yeh i thought for the price the specs are good, its dell so paying for the windows and dell stuff, i'm guessing because i'm buying it from dell it got a hundred pound extra on it, but i think i would have more peace of mind with dell.

Is that just for the TOWER alone?

And piece of mind and DELL don't go together at all.

K well i will steer clear of it now, safe.

Checking out overclockers might make it, not really left with much options lols

Keeps spilling over £500 when i try calculating the manual setup

is computer fare cheaper than amazon/ebuyer etc?

cant say exactly but these man make these comps from scratch and you can bargain with them like my cousin got a free traveling case and like 50-60 off (its a recession these man are on a grind)

bargaining with them is the most important thing

computer fair in straford is decent, but there's always gonna be dodgy heads 'cause it's pretty much a market

I'd say eBuyer or Tesco like I always do

He's getting a way better deal in terms of cost and parts than even your top range Mac Mini. Just a shame it's Dell who are supplying it.
