Tesco - Dell desktop and monitor £349 Good deal ??

  RKMonty 14:47 21 Feb 2009

Hi There is a Dell Inspiron 530 C2D E7200 500GB Desktop and a Dell 19" monitor on Tesco direct for £349 Number 901-3398
Is it a bargain or a good spec ?
Any comments will be interesting

Yes, quite a good spec for the price, and the monitor also has built-in TV Tuner, not bad.

Onboard graphics not so good, but overall not bad for the money...It does have PCIE slot for a decent graphics card that you could buy later, not the best, but not the worst either.

I hope I got the correct one.If you have plenty cash you can buy them individually.
Desktop for £499.00
Monitor for £119.00
Total £618.00

Probably screwed up somewhere but that is what I make it.
A saving of £269.00

Sorry should have said Base Unit.£499.00

You are right....The volume shifted by Tesco reflects the price. Still think that poor graphics let it down a little though.

I build my own (except laptops) so have no real experience of "Shop bought" systems

The graphic card would be perfectly satisfactory for almost all purposes; (playing the latest games would be a different matter). If you are not into games, then don`t even think about it.

It could easily be changed at a later date, should you so wish.

Compare it with Dell's own website price:

Looks as if it doesn't come with speakers,
Bear this in mind if you choose to buy it.

Speakers can be picked up pretty cheap though.

Too late.looks like they are sold out.
Or out of stock at least. click here
Plus no wireless connection with them.
