Default Dell computer show

I just watched this dell computer show online. And i thought it was a complete rip off and just using pretty words to make it seem great. They said they have the best of the best computer. The xps. It was at 1500 AT THE LEAST!It had only a 160gb hard drive and 512mb ram. The processor seemed good though. Intel pentium D dual core 3ghz. but they had some graphics card by ATI which wasnt powerful at all. He only said it once but they didnt prove why it was better. They said 160gb is TREMENDOUS space and crap. they claimed that 512mb was sooo fast when really you can go up to 3 or 4 gigs(idk what is the highest). They were tricking n00bs and everyone was calling and stuff and saying ooo em gee i <333 this computer it has 1337 haxx0rz. Dell can go kiss my ass I felt like calling and trash talking them. But no i didnt

4.26GHZ...That is off-limits for my criteria! The Top speed I can support is up to 3.4GHZ! After that, I consider it too new and I won't be able to use it without undeClocking

I don't think so. At the CES show they showed all 4 GPUs.

Wait, apparantly, Nvidia said that SLI isn't what it is supposed to do. The next video card should have basic SLI in one card... meaning 2 VPUs...

Well, I was looking at the inside and you can clearly see two sets of two. Each linked by the SLI connector.
