  • Summary: would have given 5 stars but mine came with a 128mb graphics card and not the 256 like stated in add. it did come with a keyboard and mouse and vista 64bit disk which i didn't know i was getting but glad i did . As soon as i got it i wiped the drive and did a fresh install of windows 7 home prem. 64 bit "I had NO problems what so ever" my base score is 4.1 which would be more if i had the graphics card that i thought came with the unit. my top score after installing win.

  • Summary: The computer was received with the card reader cover floating around inside the case which was easy to fix. Starting up the computer failed because the hard drive had been formatted improperly. Thankfully, they included system software, Vista Home. Reformatting the hard drive and installing Windows and supplied software was time consuming but went smoothly. Once all this was done the computer performed beautifully.

Descent card for non gaming use. 4)Has PCI-E as well as PCI 5)Comes with a wireless card in a PCI slot 6)The siding is easily taken off to work on the computer. Cons: 1)This computer comes with a faulty low quality PSU (power supply unit). The PSU causes the CPU fan to go haywire when you turn it off.

A good computer, particularly if you can get one second hand

  • Excerpt: I bought a Dell XPS 420 over two years ago, and I have to say I have been very pleased with it overall. After all of this time it is still working like new, and still has the performance to rival many newer computers. The Dell XPS 420 comes with the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system, which I personally have never had any problems with and have found to be a quick and efficient operating system.

  • Excerpt: I bought this desktop PC a year ago from the Dell website and I am very impressed with the spec and value for money. It came with a Nvidia 3d card, 2GB ram and a 160GB hard drive. I have been able to play intensive games such as Crysis on it with the settings up quite high. This machine looks slick, with black finish and blue lighting, very handsome piece of kit.
