Can you beat this?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I can currently get this build for 500 from dell...

i know most OCN are against buying preconfigured machines but at this price, it is hard to resist.

Willbe used for office applications and web surfing. Nothing too crazy intensive. (this current setup is overkill imo, but more future proof? )

* Intel Core i5-2310 processor (2.80GHz)
* 1TB Serial ATA Hard Drive (7200RPM)
* AMD Radeon HD 6450 1GB DDR3
* 6GB DDR3 SDRAM at 1333MHz- 2 DIMMs
* Integrated 8 in 1 Media Card Reader
* Dell USB Entry Keyboard
* Dell USB Optical Mouse
* Wireless 1502 (802.11n) WLAN mini-Card
* Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-Bit
* 1 Year Basic Service Plan

You could at least match it. The reason many ocn members dislike buying prebuilt computers is because they always have the cheapest parts in them. 500 for that computer would be hard to beat, however it will have the most budget motherboard possible, some no name brand of ram, the graphics card they stated would most likely be the onboard graphics not dedicated, and the power supply supplied will only just be enough to run the system. If your not expecting it to do much and wont want to upgrade it (to upgrade the graphics it might mean a new motherboard and it WILL mean a new power supply) then go for it. Personally if they offer an extended warranty on it i would get that as well, my experiance with prebuilt computers is they never die in the warranty period but shortly after.
