    Dell has released two products updates for gamers and hardcore enthusiasts. With Intel having now officially announced its quad-core processors, Dell has introduced its quad-core XPS 710 gaming desktop which can be equipped with Intel's Core 2 Extreme QX6700 processor. According to Dell, the Core 2 Extreme QX6700 enables the XPS 710 to provide up to 55% better performance than the previous Core 2 Extreme dual-core processor used in the XPS 700. The Windows Vista Premium-Ready XPS 710 starts at $3,699 for a Jet Black chassis, Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700 processor, 750W power supply and Dell's 2-year limited XPS warranty. For $100 more, you can upgrade to the Special Edition Formula Red model with a 1kW power supply. The other new addition to the Dell product mix is the UltraSharp 3007WFP-HC 30" widescreen monitor. It features 2,560 x 1,600(WQXGA) resolution, 8ms response time, integrated 9-in-2 media reader and four USB 2.0 ports. The UltraSharp 3007WFP-HC will be available as an option for some select XPS models by the end of the year or the monitor may be purchased alone for $1,699.

    I've attempted/investigated upgrading three Dells now. Needless to say, I would NEVER, NEVER reccomend a Dell to ANYONE!!! It's all throw-away.

    Dell also dropped the price of their 30" and you can easily find it for $1300 these days ...

    then it would be a good idea to buy one and throw an eVGA nVida nForce 680 SLI motherboard inside that case and u should be rocking...

    precisely that case is made for the OEM motherboard. It might not fit into the casing which comes with it. Different size. Its not a standard ATX.

    NOPE! Couldn't do that either. Their power supplies are proprietary too and I've only heard of one 3rd party company that makes compatible parts.

    I can say this with confidence since I'm a very sad Dell owner. Never again... especially now that I'm certified.
