that videocard will do just as good as mine in videogames/benching. workstation videocards run totally different from our gaming cards. 16gb of RAM, take that VISTA!

Big difference between a PC and a workstation and if he's using it work computer as a marine biologist, the GFX card he ordered could quite easily be much better than the latest gaming GFX cards. Also, when it comes to workstations and servers, dell does a much better job on them than their PC's.

This system is the upgrade to Dell's venerable 690 line. Very nice machines. Very quiet too. I configure/reload half a dozen or so of the 690's a month and have never had one fail (ok we had one memory failure). The memory riser is a nice piece of tech too. All in all I am very impressed with the new model. Just had one in here a week ago to setup for our customers acceptance tests. Same specs as the one your dad got, except we loaded win server 2003 x64 on it (customer requirement and dell does not offer it). I was tempted to try Crysis benchmarks on it, but did not have time.

BTW the mother board (as all dell mobo's) is a custom board and without major modifications to a chassis, will not fit in any system I have worked with. Check the details here;
