Default Bottleneck - P4 3.2 and Geforce 7800 GTX?

I just wanted to hear from somebody else. A Pentium 4 3.2 ghz processer with a Gefore 78000 GTX gfx card won't bottleneck, right? I just want to make sure before buying it.

Also it's coming with 2 gigs of Ram, and all the other misc. stuff you need. There's a 24 inch Widescreen monitor coming with it, I bought it half off. I'm kinda scared though, buying something half off. I mean, either its a really good deal or there making room for something better or something else. The comps coming from Dell, its 600 series.

I understand it might be cheaper to build my own pc rather than to buy it off the assembly line. But me and my dad both have dells, his 6 years old my 4 years old. Never ever ever had a problem with it, still runs perfect to this day, so I naturally have confidence in the company.

Is there a big hate group against Dell or something?

Anyways, the monitor is 12 ms which is probably a problem.

most of the people here don't believe in the big brands like dell, hp and etc... these companies limit your ability to get the most out of your components. and as far as your bottleneck concern, i'll leave it to someone else.

Dont buy that.

Pay someone on the forum to custom build you a computer from newegg.com and save money and get a better machine.

a computer that exceeds the performance of the dell you have selected can be built for 600+ less.

I did shop around and build my own before looking at that Dell. I'll post what I jotted down in a minute.

Logisys Dracula Blue/Chrome case

480w PSU - Can't read my writing on the brand name, needs to be changed though. O, the alt. PSU was a 500w Aspire

AMD 64 3800

GF 7800 GTX

1 Gig Corsair XMS pc 3200 Twin XXL Latency

Foxcon NF4UK8AA Mobo

Likon 19'' flat panel monitor

Seagate 160 HD

Windows XP

I think the total was around $1500 or something.
