Seems alrite, I'd be careful with Dell PCs though as they do seem to use custom parts in their case which are extremely expensive to replace. Apart from that it's a good offer (remeber to add VAT)

No mention of a monitor - the 3.06MHz equipped 8300 I've come across in the reviews has an 18in TFT model.

Note that the sellers claimed full price of £900 includes keyboard, mouse and 17" tft monitor of which none are included. Price claims like that are in clear breach of eBay rules.

Sorry, the auction does include mouse and keyboard. That claimed full price does include the monitor though. I imagine Dell would charge you less than £600 for what you get, not £900!

Did'nt go it in the end after spoting the vat bit, just seemed a good deal at £350 with those specs for 2nd pc to play with, cheers to all, ricki
