Depending on your expectations, rumors are circulating that the Gen 6 XPS is due very shortly.
From unofficial sources, Dell will break with Intel and offer an nVidia nForce-based board in the next generation of gaming/high end system.
The latest price cut makes the Gen 5 XPS interesting.
I'm torn between teh 3.0 Dual Processor and the "regular" 3.2 Dual Processor.
I run a game or two once in a while, but nothing drastic. I am interested in the dual processor to enable running Word and a couple of other business apps more gracefully than a non-dual processor might.
I'm thinking a 10,000 rpm hard drive for the main drive, and a 160 gig SATA for the second drive. I have a server to which I can offload huge amounts of data.
The 256 MB PCI express GeForce 6800 seems adequate. I presume it'll work decently with the current generation of games.
I'm trying to decide whether I want Dell's 20" ultrasharp monitor. In the past these LCD monitors "ghosted" when playing games...I'm sure that is not the right term...maybe a better way to say it is that images persisted longer than they do on a glass tube monitor. Is this still the casE? This seems a pretty good monitor for the price. Any opinions?
