everything's nice exept...your video card. It's a little low.

Dell is an awesome company. The reason people keeps telling that they suck is because of teir useless processes, even with them, they're good.

DO NOT GET A DELL. Go to www.ibuypower.com if you don't feel comfortable building your own computer. I just built my own computer. And frankly only prob was a faulty stick of ram. Seriouslly dude. No need to get a dell. If you dont' want to build get it from ibuypower.com. They are btter then dell.

Dude 999$? That's F**cking crazy. You can build a custom for the same price that is twice as good.


F**ck DELL!
