    There's a new 10% off code that brings this system down to just £613 delivered. Remember this has a Blu-ray burner not just a rom drive.

    I've currently got the Q9450 @ 2.66Ghz and that's got 12mb cache.

    Is this one quicker? Same processor speed but less on-die cache?

    the i7s are a different architecture and will be faster at the same speed than the q9450, as well as having hyper threading.

    to be honest though, given the price of both DDR3 and x58 motherboards, there would be absolutely no sense in changing from a q9450 chip (which is a superb chip) to this one, as the performance gain will be slight, but the hit to the wallet large.

    My thoughts too.

    Saying that, I've seen this very system posted elsewhere and people are going nuts over it! Some are selling their current machines to buy this even if the PC is only a few months old!

    I must say though, I thought it was a good deal at just over £600, it would certainly be hard to build one for this price!

    It's now down to just £560.99 delivered with the 15% off code.

    I've updated the link to go via small business as the discount code won't work through Dell home.
