4800+=2x1mb l2 cache

4600+=2x512kb l2 cache

The x1900xtx out performs the 7900gt by a WHOLE lot.

You could get two 7900gtx's in SLI or two x1900's in crossfire with that budget if you are actually serious.

Theres been numerous reviews praising Dell for building quality LCD's, you can't compare them to their desktops and notebooks if thats what you mean by dumb tasks and such.

A thread is dedicated to Dell's 3007 at Hard showing rave performance in games.

Ok the main reason I gave a price in that range it basicly....leaves him some room with a 4k budget to get anything else he wants. If I had 4k to blow I would get an awesome comp and have 2k left for saving of for getting a ungodly LCD gaming display, or even get a plasma screen.....ya know use you imagination .

Also I did not say 7900gt was better then 1900xtx .
I simply meant it for saving money for other things and still having an awesome comp, also if I had the choice I would go with a Nvidia 7900 gtx 512 because it is Nvidia and I have always used em. I will say it again though, the point is im trying to make sure the guy understands that he does not need a system of ungodly parts to play all the best games, and with even the one I showed him he could do very well.

Anyway, it is up to him, I will not argue the point I was trying to make anylonger, Good day Ladies and Gents *tips hat and walks out of this part of the forum bar*.
