Dell LCDs are another brands LCDs w/ the Dell name on it. I think they come from Samsung or Viewsonic. Either way they are nice yes, but are to much for what they are.

I am uncertain as to the pariticulars of esthetics, nor what your price range is. Here are a few Beauties:

CoolerMaster Stacker 830

CoolerMaster Mystique 631-RC-631

...and for less dough...

AeroCool Spiral Galaxies

CoolerMaster Praetorian (Silver)

Basically I think you want subtle Elegance with a whisper of barely contained Power.

Try Lian Li if you have deep pockets

dell has good cheap computers, but umm yeah pretty much all the bad things mentioned are true. And their support is rather... foreign. I always got someone like Sonia, Amit, or Bushavso or something like that.
