XPS 630

A couple days ago, I made a post about my upcoming PC upgrade. I said that my new rig will be ready sometime in October. Well, it's going to be earlier than that. I mean real early...like now. Because when I went to Best Buy, earlier today, to canvass the components that I needed for my upgrade, I saw a scrumptious Dell XPS package. I just couldn't resist and, as an impulsive buyer, went home with it.

The innards. Lots of space, lots of upgrade potential.

How can I, or anyone else, resist the deal though. The rig packs serious gaming power, almost as much as the rig that I was planning to build, and it's cheap enough. Here's its specs:
  • 6 GB of Memory
  • Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 (3.o GHz)
  • GeForce 9800 GT
  • 750 Watts Power Supply
  • Full Tower Case
The motherboard is also an SLI. So I can just pop another 9800 GT if money allows. The only thing is, its PCI express has only 8 lanes instead of 16. That's fine by me though. Since its price was reasonable enough. The custom rig that I wanted would've cost me around $1,300 to $1,400. But I only paid less than $1,400 for this rig. In addition, the package also includes a Dell 24" monitor and a Canon multi-purpose scanner/printer. So, yeah, I'm really happy with it. Now I probably won't have time for blogging anymore as I have this baby to play with.
