It certainly is a bit of a beast, price seems reasonable too. In fact it could be a good deal if that Xi-Fi and those speakers cost a bit if you were to buy separate, never checked myself.

With the 8800 in there its a good price but you can do it for less by buying a lesser Dimension 9200 and throwing in your own speakers xifi and gfx. (works out for same price you can get as above but E6700 processor so 2.66ghz using the DimensionTM 9200 (D04925A) Configuration. Depends on exact needs of course.

as with the other 9200 worth considering
640GB Serial ATA RAID 0 Stripe [2x320GB 7200rpm drives with DataBurst™ cache] [add £29.38 or £1/month1]

140gb extra for under £30.

Other than that short of going for an E6700 (which is a well overpriced upgrade) or going quadcore, you wont get a better home pc than this.

Great Deal this. Especially considering it's a GTX 8800 and not the lesser GT or GTS models.

Just for my own comparison I did a quick froogle search on all the products choosing low or lowest prices and came up at around the £1000 mark for building this yourself. This was before anything like cases, power supplies, cooling solutions etc, and before delivery costs from the multiple vendors you would need to go to to get best prices. So adding all that up too I would expect you'd easily break the £1200 mark.


] about this baby....quad core is the future.

Shame about the GTS card + the price though.

For 99% of apps this will run as fast.. few programs use the 4 cores yet
