        My overclocked score (core=409, memory=1113) is 5157. My non-overclocked score is 4522. That's with a P4 2.8 running at 3.0 on a aging single-channel 845 Epox board. I'm hoping to see big improvements with my new 3500+ dual channel rig. How much I can O/C this thing remains to be seen...

                  2MB Ram
                  2 GeForce Ultras in SLI config

                  for $2,380...I'd have bought it

                  Went with the P4 system based on FiringSquad's positive review of the P4 660 CPU and the great deal from Dell

                  PROPS to DELL:
                  I ordered the system last Thursday, and it included free 2nd day shipping...they estimated at the time that it would arrive on Friday of this week, I thought that's great I'll get it in a week. IT ARRIVES TODAY, TUESDAY. How's that for service???
                  Could be faster just look at newegg

                    go with Nvidia

                    The specs for your computer seem good, except for the video card. I would go with the BFG Tech Geforce 6800 Ultra OC AGP or PCIe, depending on your motherboard. I have used both and I have found Nvidia GPU's perform better. You'll pay more for BFG Tech cards but they are worth every penny. Good build quality and true life time warranty.

                      IsnĀ“t this thread rather old...?

                      Btw, my advice, never buy a popular logo like Dell or Alienware. (especially Alienware)

                      They take away every cent from your wallet. Just put together your own system. Mine costed $800, a system less powerful that had a logo, costed well over $1200.
