If it must be Dell, I'd get a Core 2 Duo E6600 with 2GB of RAM and a nice 19" UltraSharp monitor.


See Wii. See Wii run. See Wii blow all the other consoles out of the water!

XPS=Overpriced. I agree with the above poster.

Or you could just build and get financing thru Newegg.

you can build a better computer than dell for almost half the price.

I got my third build for only about $1,000. And that is better than any dell except for the intel core 2 duos.

I wish i would've built a core 2 duo instead but too late now.

Don't buy a Dell. Dell is the anti-christ of all PC companies.
