Default Re: Looking for a Gaming computer

what about the standard XPS15 from dell? I read some reviews and people were saying they could do call of duty at max settings etc...

XPS 15
Operating System - Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium, 64bit, English
Processor - Intel® Core™ i5-480M (2.66GHz, 4Threads, turbo boost up to 2.93Ghz, 3M cache)
Memory - 4GB Shared Dual Channel DDR3 Memory
Keyboard - Backlit Keyboard - English
Video Card - NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 420M 1GB graphics with Optimus
Hard Drive - 500GB 7200 RPM SATA Hard Drive
Integrated Network Adapter - Integrated 10/100/1000 Network Card
CD ROM/DVD ROM 8X Tray Load CD/DVD Burner (Dual Layer DVD+/-R Drive)
Sound JBL 2.1 Speakers with Waves Maxx Audio 3
Wireless Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 1000 with Wireless Display Support

I can get this for a little over 800 USD. would this be a good value?

For the games you want to run, either of the suggestions you posted will easily handle them.

17.3" screen, amazing cooling system, i7 cpu, 5870 gpu. It may be recertified, but most people who buy recertified cannot even tell that it's recertified, and those who can notice only slight cosmetic problems that they don't even care about. Sure, they sometimes have problems, but so do brand new machines. This will be able to tear up anything thrown at it.
