Re: a system that i thought would meet my expectations
Get a monster amd gaming machine. The x850xt, as good as it is, just doesn't compare with dual 6800gt's in sli config. How much did you pay for the xps? $3500? I recommend getting something like an abs, or a cyberpower gamer comp, or any of the high end pc's. Or, you can build your own pc, the better option above all. I've seen reviews for the xps gen.5 and it seems to pretty good though... are you sure you have ht on? The reviews that I read in the mag. Maximum pc (july) told of a pretty good pc. Well, then again, that one had 1tb of hd space... but still. You should be getting better performance than that! Yeah, totally, just go amd. If you need sites, let me know. Otherwise, build away! Or,if you decide to keep it, it's still a good comp. Dell.... unfortunately... sucks. I had one... *sigh* troubles one after another... but anywho...hope all goes well!
Macbook Pro and Logitech z5500s. All you really need.
