Dell Dimension 8300 3.0GHz - Ultimate Christmas Bundle


Dell is, quite simply, a massive PC builder. When Michael Dell pioneered the direct sale model with PCs it was pretty much unheard of, but it turned out that he was right and everyone else was wrong. These days, the name Dell is synonymous with...

Dell XPS 8300 review


The chip is but a stone's throw away from being Intel's top-of-the-line part, as its bigger brother - the i7-2600K - adds an unlocked CPU multiplier to the equation (overclockers, rejoice). For all intents and purposes, the Dell XPS 8300's processor...

It was surprising enough to see the Dell XPS 8300 just come out of nowhere and slap around competing desktop PCs with its killer mix of price and performance. But as we dug deeper into the system, Dell's system just refused to disappoint. To call this...

Dell XPS 8300 Review (Core i5/Nvidia)


Life in 2011 is hectic, and we don't all have the time or skills necessary to build a PC from the ground up. There are many system makers in the UK, but Dell are assuredly one of the biggest, offering a huge range of solutions to suit every desire and...

The case design is very appealing ; quiet ; runs cool ; Raid 0 configuration performs well ; great CPU and GPU performance

rather expensive when compared to other machines with similar specifications ; some of the ‘upgrade' pricing seems high ; no heatspreaders on memory ; internal cable routing could be neater

Kitguru says: A well built machine with balanced specifications.

Dell XPS 8300


Excellent price to performance ratio ; Ample connectivity options ; Eye-catching Design

Not much room for internal upgrades

Dell's inexpensive XPS 8300 is a true force to be reckoned with for its speeds, connections, and do-no-wrong attitude.

Business-oriented system includes a copy of Office XP. Dell's 17-inch LCD displays clean text, while the speakers pump out great-sounding audio.

Dell Dimension 8300


When you're a direct-supply giant, you win a lot of points with customers for offering enticing deals. Saving a few bucks can come at a cost, though, as we found with the newest Dell Dimension 8300 ($2,999 direct).

Dell XPS 8300 Review and Ratings


A true speed demon, the Sandy Bridge-based XPS 8300 sets a new standard for mainstream desktop PCs—at least for now.

High productivity, gaming performance ; Attractive design ; USB 3.0 ; Two-year onsite warranty

Comparatively pricey ; Limited upgradability

Configured as our unit is, the Dell XPS 8300 dished out amazing productivity and 3D-gaming performance for the price. This is made even more impressive by the fact that the system is a mainstream-price desktop, not a high-end gaming rig. Adding to the...
