Thinking of dell, but look at my newegg build

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
Well, i need a new computer due to my old one fried, so i decided ide go with a dell. My dad said he would pay half, im planning on getting a Dell XPS 630, comes with:
Black Bezel Chassis
Intel® Core™2 Q6600 Quad-Core (8MB L2 cache,2.40GHz,1066FSB)
Genuine Windows® XP Professional with re-installation CD
4GB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 800MHz - 4 DIMMs
500GB - 7200RPM, SATA 3.0Gb/s, 16MB Cache
Dual Drives: 48x Combo + 16x DVD+/-RW w/ dbl layer write capable
I will select the 30in wide monitor from the large display section
nVidia GeForce 8800 GT 512MB
Integrated 7.1 Channel Audio
Dell A525 30 Watt 2.1 Stereo Speakers with Subwoofer
Dell USB Enhanced Multimedia Keyboard
Dell Optical USB Mouse

Its only gonna cost me $600, my dads going to pay the rest. Does this sound like a good deal for $1200?

don't go Dell.

As of right now, they are ripping off customers (at least that's the last I heard in the lawsuit). Additionally, you'll have loads of fun taking off all the extra crap they put on the hard drive.

Build you own.

Everyone else here will probably tell you similar.

You will probably get a better machine for the same price at a local computer store but their support can't beat Dells'. I say go for it.

Heres the thing. My dads only going to pay half if i go dell. Because he says their dependable, witch they are, and you can have one for a long time. Ive had my laptop, witch im on right now, for 5 years and its done me great. I really dont feel like building my own, cause if something goes wrong, ill have to fix it, and i cant mooch off of dell lol

Building your own will be cheaper And would run better. And you get to know you built it.

Shoot with $1200 I could build a monster rig with SLI and plenty of Power.

My labtop from dell crapped out as soon as the warranty ended. They wouldnt fix it they wouldnt support it.
The Screen was really dim "when It worked" and sometimes it wouldnt come on for a month or 2"

Youre on an overclocking forum buying a prebuilt..DELL?! Blaspemy!
Have someone here do it for you..better rig. Customized parts.
Unless youre willing to overpay and are going to get one of their warranties build it your self.

I could easily build that exact build for $1000, probably less. And mine would have a better motherboard, better power supply, better mouse, a better harddrive, but a different case.
