Dells are fine for running stock and trying to save a little money. I know they tended to skimp on parts in the past. My sister-in-law's computer was 1500$, they gave her a 17" .27pitch CRT monitor (what crap), and it seriously takes 20minutes to boot up, I told her to send it back (she didn't listen to me and still hates the thing). My uncle had a dell, the hard drive went 2 days after the warrenty. I'm not saying I dont like them, but I surely wouldn't buy one.

Dells are pretty decent machines. Overall from the pre-made computers I think Dells are among the best.

Last Sept. my laptop died and I had to sent it back into IBM, but I needed a computer for school... gotta have something to write papers on... I looked at building a computer, but for basically the same price I ordered a Dell 8400.
P4 530
1gb DDR2 @533
160bg SATA hd
sb sound (I swapped for an Audigy 2 ZS)
X300SE (I put a 6600GT in there)
17" digital LCD

My rents needed a computer and I owed them some cash so I sold it to them in May and built my current rig.

My Dell was a good computer, it was decent for gaming, but not near as good as my AMD rig.

Also, My sister has a Dell 8400 (same as mine cept for 630 cpu and 6800 gfx)
My parents also have a Dell XPS T600 PIII 600 rig that is still used every day.
They also have a Dell 8200 somewhere.

Like I said, overall Dell makes a pretty decent computer, especially for the price. Often they cost about as much as building, until you get into their better rigs.

However, when it comes to extreme performance and/or gaming Dells can't really compete w/ custom built AMD systems

Dell is bad because they have a bad brand name. The Dell name isn't a good sign. If you want a new computer, Dell isn't the first thing that pops into your mind, AMD is.

Dell isnt that bad compared to Alienware. They use crap parts and way overcharge you for them.
Very nice!
