Lemmie see if I can build it cheaper :p

No, its not a good deal, you can get the most important parts (mobo, vid card, processor, ram, HD, and video card) for about 1,864 at newegg. And it would be overclockable :p.

Heres a screenshot.

Note: Its missing the video card because they are out of stock, but the video card is $525

WEll there wont be a screenshot but heres a listing

Lite-On 16x DVD burner $60.99
400GB Sata HD $368.00
OCZ Platinum DDR2 (2x512) $368.75
ABIT AS8 Mobo $90.00
The Processor $452.00 (retail)
Video Card $525.00

You can save money and put it into a better cooling solution. So IMO its a raw deal.

Well the components sound amazing, its just... ITS DELL! No overclocking, No aftermarket motherboards, and No overclocking!!! lol
I would just buy all those components seperatly and put it together yourself.. but it is very tempting when you see those XPS cases.... but you could spend $500 out of the $1100 you saved and buy the best case available on the market

Nice nice comp, but you can always build it yourself cheeper, or a better one for the same (if you were willing to spend that 2 grand anyways), plus no Ocing options
