Default My new desktop? what do you think?

Well for a while i was thinking about buying a laptop but i realised i really didnt need something portable so i started looking into desktops and i was wondering what you guys think of this comp
(id like to buy from dell because the shipping wont kill me since i live in canada)

http://configure.dell.com/dellstore/...IME521_FEAT_E3

Im probably gunna sell the 20 inch monitor for 300$ (its 329.99 itself) and get a 23 inch lcd tv monitor instead wich you can see in the accesories part.

Also i plan on upgrading the video card to something beter in the futur probably a nvidia or something.

Also i plan on doing alot of gaming and i like the media center so i can record tv and such not to mention i have an xbox 360 that will further its use.

So tell me what you think all comments are much appreciated.

Thanks alot for your help.

It looks good. But I just configured a Dell XPS 410 today for about the same price and I believe they are a little better than the Dimension models. Then again, it's $1099 USD, not Canadian. Still, it's a great deal. Get the free VIsta Home Premium upgrade too. You just pay $10 S&H when it comes time to get the new OS.

Oh yeah, that PC config will play every game today.
