Nice way to buy a top of the line computer if you have no knowlage on building one yourself.. and have a ****load of money to spend. cause that is the only thing i find bad.. THE PRICE! its really expensive..
and also known that dells computers dont oc very well...

hehe, look at the specs for the $1800 version. Not bad, but if you purchased it, you'd be disappointed.

Nothing good from Dell is cheap...always keep that in mind.

I would say a dell is for a person that wants a kick ass computer but doesn’t want to mess with anything else. Anything dell has isn’t very upgradeable so keep that in mind. But the XPS usually comes with monitors, keyboards, and 5.1 speakers and that crap adds up when you are building a brand new system.

Yeah you'll pay a lot more from buying a high end system from them then you would building it. However the software is always the crappy part when trying to rival there prices on lower end systems.

I dont have much against Dell, other than they ultimately overcharge. They make a sweet system, and they are finally figuring out that the custom market is not something to be trifled with.

The fact of the matter is simply: you can build a rig of the same or better stature, put the software you WANT on it, and still come out cheaper in the end. Sometimes alot cheaper, sometimes only a little...but still less.

but would u really even need to oc. i mean i know its habit to try it but from the looks of it, it seems it would be fine to leave at stock. dual 3.2, sounds pretty fresh to me. but then again is it a combined total of 6.4, or what. i didnt say it was emt64, or is that a given

I think you all are misled, like most others, about you get in $1800

P4 2.8GHz - Dual Core
6800 (doesnt specifiy GT or Ultra)
1GB RAM

Look at this page and you'll find $1800 for that system is a complete rip-off..that system can be had for a good $900-$1000, maybe less the only thing you dont get is support or a warranty but most products have 1 year or lifetime warranties
