all standard benchmarks are done at 1280x1024 no matter the supported res of the comp or lappy to make it fair
Unless you got the professional version.....I was trying not to make the dell look like such a money gorge. His processor upgrade probably costs $400 bringing his total to approximately $2000 including the ram. Thats US funds which would be equal to $998 british pounds. and your benchmark is only 2000 more and you only because you have two graphics cards. So you spent $1800 too much. You could have gotten three gateways for that price. To be completely objective though the blue ray drive is probably worth about $200 and I don't know if gateway ships to England or where-ever you are. Maybe you are just filthy rich.
