There are some great special desktop coupon deals from Dell Home right now. One such deal is a 20% off the highly rated Inspiron 546 Desktop PC.
Use Dell coupon code number 8MDS7L8X707TLM to save 20% off Dell Inspiron 546 desktops that are priced at least $699 before the savings.
This isn't a high-performance gaming PC, but once you upgrade it to a $699 price, it is an excellent mid-range computer system. The starting price is super-low at $269, so there is a large budget for upgrades to reach the $699 minimum price.
If you configure an Inspiron 546 computer for $699, it will cost $559.20 after the instant coupon code savings of $139.80. Of course, you can price the system higher, and your 20% off Dell coupon code will net even bigger savings.
As far as upgrades go, there are many that are a very good value. They become a great deal once you factor in the additional 20% off.
Upgrading the processor is definitely recommended. At the value end upgrade to the 2.5GHz AMD Athlon X2 7550. If you think you need more CPU power consider the 2.4GHz AMD Phenom X3 8750 or even better the 2.3GHz AMD Phenom X4 Quad-Core 9650.
Most users will want to upgrade to Vista Home Premium and upsize to 4GB of DDR2 memory. Most people will not need more than the standard 320GB hard drive storage space. However, upgrades are cheap and if you take a lot of high-resolution pictures, store videos or download movies, you'll want to upgrade.
The system doesn't come with a monitor, so if you need one you can add one in for as little as $140.
Also consider upgrading the graphics card to the 512 MB ATI Radeon HD 4350. This will not only dramatically improve the performance of video games, it can also help with Windows Aero effects, video decoding and more.
