Hi,
I need a new dell PC,
I want to play games (fifa online) and download things. I want it to be quite fast running and be able store a fair bit. I want a 19" monitor.
I have seen the dimension 9200 which has a intel viiv core processor is this any good?
I got the price to £729 with the gforce video card I want.
I just need some help incase there is a better PC for the same sort of price. Any help appreciated

    The best deal at the moment is E-value code 200-01922. Around £100 higher than your figure but well, well worth it:

    Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E6600 Processor (2.4GHz, 1066MHz, 4MB)
    Windows® XP Home Edition (Incl Operating System Re-installation CD)
    2048MB Dual Channel DDR2 533MHz [2x1024]
    Dell™ Black Enhanced USB Multimedia Keyboard - UK/Ire (QWERTY)
    Dell™ 20" Black Wide Flat Panel (E207WFP) - UK/Irish
    256MB nVidia® GeForce® 7900GS graphics card
    320GB Serial ATA RAID 0 Stripe [2x160GB 7200rpm drives]
    Internal 13-in-1 Media Card Reader
    Dell 2 Button USB Scroll Optical Mouse - Black
    16x DVD +/- RW Drive
    Integrated Audio with Dolby Digital 7.1 capability

    £856.57 delivered

    5.5% through Quidco brings it down to close to £800

    Any advice that you receive from me is worth exactly what you paid for it. Not a penny more or a penny less.

    Unfortunately, their keyboards appear to lack '.' or shift keys. ;)

  • Hi. I just got this:

    £650:
    Intel® Viiv™ Core® 2 Duo® E6400 2.13GHz
    2048MB Dual Channel DDR2 533MHz [2x1024] Memory
    320GB (7200rpm) Serial ATA Hard Drive with 8MB DataBurst™ cache
    256MB Nvidia GeForce 7300 TurboCache graphics card
    Genuine Windows® XP Media Center Edition 2005
    MCE to Vista Premium Upgrade (Free)
    Dell™ 19" Value Flat Panel
    Upgrade to ultra sharp, usually £41.
    16x DVD +/- RW Drive
    Collect & Return, 1 Year Service only
    Dell 5650 5.1 Surrond System, usually £41 with a PC.

    Graphics card is pants for games but I save enough money to buy a MUCH better one than Dell can offer for the money (I think...). I can also make a tidy £35 profit selling the surround on ebay, but they look like good speakers so I may keep them.
    They say you can't put a value on life... but I live it at half price!
