[Dell] Dell Vostro 430 PC w/Core i7-860, 4GB RAM, 500GB, Win 7 $709 or 8GB RAM $769 (Hot!)

Dell.ca has a hot desktop deal this morning! How about an i7-860 based system for well under $750? Check it out:

Vostro 430 Desktop PC w/i7-860, 4GB RAM, Windows 7 Home Premium for $709
  • Windows 7 Home Premium, with Media, 32-bit, English (can upgrade to 64-bit for free)
  • Intel Core™ i7-860 w/VT (2.8GHz 8MB L3 Cache)
  • 500GB Serial ATA Hard Drive (7200RPM) w/DataBurst Cache
  • 4GB Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM 1333MHz - 2DIMMs
  • 512MB ATI Radeon™ HD 4350 (DVI, VGA, HDMI)
  • Single Drive: 16X (DVD+/-RW) Burner Drive
  • Integrated 5.1 Channel Audio
  • Dell QuietKey Keyboard
That is a great price. An i7-860 at retail is close to 45% of the system cost alone. Notable upgrades? You can go up to 8GB of RAM for +$60. That, too, is hot when you consider that 4GB of DDR 1333MHz RAM is about $100-$115.

Shipping is free. You'll probably want to act quickly on this one!

That's a pretty damn good deal. Just built an i5/2GB/500GB/HD4770 for my co-worker that came to ~$695 after taxes w/o OS. This would have been a better deal, especially if we pawned off the HD4350 and bought the HD4770 separately!

You need to be careful which package you use to customize as the pricing can vary.

I just configured the exact Studio XPS 8000 system (i860, 1TB HD, 8GB RAM) and one package worked out to $1049 and the other $1299.

Was very likely a pricing error given it was only up for an hour or so. Doubtful it would even have been honored.

You can still get a Core i860 Vostro with Win7-64bit for $759 which is a great base for building to.
