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.

You can't combine the core speeds
Well, you can if you want, but it doesn't work that way.

And did you look at the configuration for the $1800 system? Thats with a dual core 2.8, 1 gig of ram, a 6800 (single), Windows MCE, etc.

***EDIT

Gator kinda sorta beat me to it, even though I linked it already.

Good marketing scheme. Always watch for the "starting from _____" Where ____ is some really attractive price (like 1800 for an SLI 3.2 dual core rig)...

Check my post #5. The link in that takes you right to the configuration page of the $1800 system. The first selection is processor, and it's on the Pentium D 820, which is a 2.8.
