Nice price on this one. Voted hot

Would it be worth upgrading this to the E6300 duo core cpu. Is that much better than the 3.4ghz dual cpu.

Also if i put in a nice graphics card such as a 7900gt or the ati x1900gt would this be a good spec machine for playing the latest games.

Thanks

From what I hear Dell machines don't always have the necessary space to accommodate the tastier side of graphic cards, i'm sure a fellow HUKD'er will be along shortly to set the record straight.

Yes. Better performance and lower power consumption, and if you cannabilise the machine at some point you can overclock the chip and get a huge boost to performance.

overclocking is a risky business as far as I'm concerned although I expect there are experts out there who have successfully upped the performance with little risk of CPU failure.

From what I read the Core 2 chips are far superior to the Pentium D chips so if it was me I'd invest in the upgraded chip to ensure the best performance.
