Dell XPS 8300 Review (Core i5/Nvidia)

Rating: 8.0.

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 budget. Today we are looking at the compact, yet stylish XPS 8300 – a performance range which operates alongside their ultra high end Alienware series.

The XPS 8300 can be configured with a wide range of hardware and the system we are reviewing today ships with the very capable Intel Core i5 2500, Bluray drive, a generous 2TB of storage and includes an Nvidia GTX560 ti for high resolution gaming demands.

With a price starting at £429, it certainly won’t break the bank. Our review sample has been significantly enhanced when compared to the entry level specification however.

XPS 8300 Review machine:

Processor: Intel Core i5 2500 (3.30ghz)
Memory: 6GB DDR3 1333mhz
Graphics Card: Nvidia GTX560 ti
Optical: BluRay Drive
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit)
Storage: 2TB Hard Drive configured in RAID 0 ‘stripe’ (2x1TB 7,200rpm)

We priced our specific build at around £1,329.00 inc vat.
