I think so. Personally, I would have gone Athlon but I don't go OEM type like Dell either. That's just the geek in me though and this sounds like a killer for factory built. Probably a good idea to get a Dell too for you portable since you'll become familiar with how both of them are hung together.

Good call Oly.

Thnx, was looking at building one, but not a big enough nerd. Just wanted a new pc that could spank the xbox360 and I could use for home office work. The laptop with the bigger monitor and video card will be great for travel

Yeah, that 6th Gen XPS desktop is a smokin' machine! Sure, the Athlon FX-57 will eek out some more frames on the gaming by maybe 10%...but the FX-57 is a grand just for the CPU! Those dual-7800GTX's in SLI will keep you happy for a long time (in gaming years anyway). They have custom double-sized heat sinks on each one.

And the X-Fi sound card....nice!



Regarding the laptop, I've also got a 9300 (current gen). It's big. But other than that, there's nothing wrong with it. The XPS is a tad faster, but I rrrrrove the 9300! And even when your finally sitting down and gaming/watching a movie/etc. the big part is great!
