I'm still not seeing why these fellows need two 7800's... One card runs any real application out there. That's a really expensive vanity benchmark score...

System Specs:
Intel Q6600 @ 3200 1.4v
Abit IP35 Pro "The Snake"
2x2gb A-Data @ 800
Diamond HD 3870 512mb

Great FORD TRUCK resource:

only current purpose for dualies is benchmarking, thats it. Unless you have a leeked copy of UT2007 that doesn't exist yet (which still wouldn;t require dualies)

Im not even gonna bother telling you to build your own but will post my personal opinion. Dell sucks. Period.

Im amazed to see so many people recomend the XPS over AlienWare. They are both expensive, yes, but an XPS is more Overpriced and has less choice when building, compared to AlienWare, and AW would just build you a better machine anyway. Dell XPS sucks, period. AW is expensive, but atleast they build you a machine with quality parts, that you would use if building yourself, and its totally upgradable just like if you build yourself.

I would NEVER even think about getting a Dell if I wanted a high end gaming rig. You people are crazy.

and by the way, for 4500, you could get an INSANE computer, dont go dell or ALienware

BUT if you dont want to build, there are sites that build pc for almost identically wut it would cost you
