    Accessing Dell's website

    If you are having problems getting Dell's site to load an offer via Rpoints then try clearing cookies then logging back on and starting over. If this doesn't help then check any third party programs that you are using that could be affecting access.

    Tip: When you click the above deal and see 'Click here to visit Dell UK and earn points' just click this once and allow the link to naturally complete, several clicks could cause the direct linking to fail which would simply send you to the home page or worse, give an error message.

    Would it be simple to add a better graphics card to this machine?

    I want a PC which can play some of the latest games but I don't want to pay loads for it... plus I don't want a really noisey machine. Would this Dell PC do the job (obviously after a graphics upgrade, if possible?)

    Yes its very easy to upgrade this, just make sure you buy a PCI-Express video card. Its just a matter of undoing a bolt on the back of the computer, removing the side panel and connecting in the card to the slot.

    Ah okay, thanks sinjin_smythe.

    Any idea how much a decent PCI-Express video card would cost, one which could play the latest games?


    Thanks

    You would be looking at £80 upwards for a decent spec video card for 3d gaming. Its worth keeping an eye on the Overclockers website for good bargains on graphics cards, always check reviews before buying as recommended gaming specs are always changing.

    Thanks again. Got another question.

    I noticed the PSU is only 300W. Would this be enough for powering two monitors on a dual-monitor setup? Or would it struggle?


    Thanks again for any help
