Default New Dell Gaming PC any good?

Budget Gaming for Retail Buyers? : Dell XPS 630 Review: Affordable PC Gaming?

It costs $1269. Seems really good since I don't have the time and don't really like building my PC's. I know it's easy b/c I have built others. Plus it has standard ATX case so you can upgrade it unlike most PC's they build.

its decent, but overpriced, and you can't overclock Dells

Dell = epic phailure (I spelt it that way on purpose )

EDIT: Gateway Computers: Retail - Product Details for Gateway® FX7024

better deal

Ugh, dell > gateway. Just make sure you get a good warranty with it. Another, and i think BETTER option is to go here.

eh... if youre to lazy/not smart enough to build your own or w/e reason...
but you just get more bang for your buck and more customization when you build your own...
the experience ive had working with dell computers is that they are pretty solid in and of themselves... theyre troopers that, for me, have rarely broken, and never badly... but you really cant do much to em in terms of customization... theyre designed to be that way, i think...
and gateway *shakes head*... oh gateway... XD - RK
