Please... For the love of all that's holy... Don't buy a dell. Please?
DELL & GAMING don't even belong together in the same paragraph. Please, look at my SIG. It's a satire for you know which company.

I will completely guide you through purchase of components and complete build and install of a gaming PC. And i'm sure others will aid as well. Just please.. not Dell...

or there's monarch, a local computer shop, maybe a friend knows how to build one.
you really do save a lot of money not buying pre-built.

and especially don't go Dell.

not just that, they're expensive, they only use Intel (when AMD is clearly better), they don't give you a real choice of video cards, they use Symantec products, they don't use good brands (they use generic parts, especially RAM and motherboards), they won't overclock, they use Symantec products, you cannot upgrade them much if at all, you get crap Dell installs which you'll neither want or need, and they use Symantec products.

oh, and did I say they also use Symantec products?
