Is that good enough for General Use and Gaming?

You could add in a monitor if you wanted. And this is much cheaper than that Dell.


Yeah, the XPSs are way too expensive. I would actually reccomend, if it had to be Dell, a suped up Studio XPS. Or just a studio. That's what I was going to get. You can get it with a 1GB Video Card, 8GB RAM, Quad Core CPU, etc.

Better PC for less.

Likely not. And if you customize it differently, probably Don's PC.

Plenty of Customization Options.

And just as a tip, Core 2 Quads are much less expensive than Core i7, Core 2 Extreme, etc.

Core 2 Quad Q9550: $250 (2.83 GHz, 12MB Cache, 1333FSB)
Core 2 i7: Over $470 (2.66 GHz, 12MB Cache, 1333FSB

Less Power for higher price. Besides, you can upgrade later.

So the real cheap ones are the most powerful? I am looking for the most powerful one on there. The cheapest most powerful. I'm not a computer monkey, you know more about them than I do. ^^ Can you show me the most cheapest powerful on there?

That's 3.0GHz, Quad-Core, 12MB Cache, 1333FSB.

And overclockable up 3.83GHz, and 1833 FSB, if you have the right motherboard.

Can't get much better than that.

I think that the Core i7 can get up to 3.33GHz, Quad Core, 12MB Cache, 1600FSB, but not overclockable and for well over $1000.

And dude, the Core 2 Quad is not real cheap. It's actually up there a bit. Most people only have a Core 2 Duo

Six G's!? Gimme the money and I could remodel six bedrooms for that!

But if you have the room -- you never gave us dimensions -- I'd skip the LCD crap and go with a projector. I'd keep a small monitor for use but the projectors -a good one- can project a large clear picture. I'd go to my uncle for the audio setup since he owns a music store and recording studio he knows a lot about audio and how to set up a quality sound system. So my advice is to find someone with audio knowledge. For the amount being spent I would have all 3 pop consoles -not the Wii- and a kick-ass PC. PC's always need upgrades, and upgrades get cheaper as time goes by, so I would hold off on anything other than the necessities of what you are currently playing. My taste on OS is Linux and I couldn't even imagine spending much more than 2 thousand on a bedroom makeover. Of course, you are talking to a guy who has a handcrafted coffin as his bed. My bedroom is done in the Rob Zombie/Ozzy Osbourne style.

Good luck, from what I have read about you, your mom is gonna freak.
HAVE FUN!
