Yeah after I get my other build set up. This set up will be back up. For whenever my main rig crashes.

I understand Dells suck, just out of curiosity though. What are the specs for the Dell your using? They seem to include E2180's in their systems much more often lately. Probably due to the fact the E2180 is hovering around 80$ as of right now.
