Anyway of building a custom one? For that price you could build an extremely good computer that'll beat any dell for the same price in every way. That, and if you ever need to fix a broken part later you'll not only get individual warrenty for 3-5 years (sometimes 10) but can upgrade and change out parts easier than pre-builts. Since building your own computer's not for everyone i'm just wondering if this is something you could think about going for instead.

I'm not that computer savy to physicaly build my own computer.

I'm just trying to get good direction for the most bang for my buck. I dont want to go over kill but I'd like to have something that I can do the stuff that I want with....

1. play 2009 and up pc games
2. multitask with pdf files open, internet open, music playing, and my computer doesnt slow down.
3. hooking up my pc to tv for watching movies.

would that xps8300 dell be good for all those things ?

plus which is the best video card : ATI Radeon HD 5670 1GB GDDR5 [add $50.00 or $2.00/month1]
AMD Radeon™ HD 6450 1GB DDR3


thanks
