IT is good for anything, thats for sure. But its just way too expensive. Probably dell makes 1 to 2 thousand profit from those computers. probably more.

good spec..but you could get the same performance for a lot less. the chip itself cost about $1000 but you could easily OC most CPU's to those speed for A LOT cheaper. and since it's a dell they probably use some cheap crappy mobo they make...

but really,that build would cost like $3000 to build...so dell is making a killer profit from it. you shouldn't buy it..unless you're ignorant and lazy

Like others have said you can spend like 2,000$ less and still get some fairly great and similar performance CPU speed wise and every day usage. As far as the SLI 9800GX2 that is way over kill. One 4870 should work miracles for a decent build without having to worry too much about the future. Because the 4870 is future proof.

Besides if you spend like 3,000$ on a build like that at the moment. You will be really ****ed when the value cuts in half a year from now.
