X-mas Build For The Wife

Recommended Posts

I just buy the wife a Dell as she has so much multimedia stuff (i mean crap) that she likes the look, multimedia bonuses, and combos they offer. She actually uses that stuff. (photo/video editing, embroidery design, managing her E-bay sales...etc. No way around it I can build myself machines all I want and no matter what case I show her she always likes/wants the shiny new Dell stuff.


That being said, looking at the current line up, I am stuck making a choice. Budget is 1500.


Needs Laser Jet Printer, D-Link DGL 4300 router.


The new Studio XPS has the I7 single Video Card 6gigs of ram (tri channel 6x1gb) DVD RW




I could go E8500 and get her SLI 4GB ram Blu-RAY (rom dvd rw)


There are pros and cons obviously but I am stuck. She does play EQII about 5-6 hours a week and is getting annoyed with not being able to push the graphics anymore on her old system. What are your thoughts.... I even considering getting teh I7 deal and tossing two 9600 Super clocked in SLI after market in it. Just ideas.


Oh she has a 24" UltraSharp Dell monitor already

Going to call tonight and get that PSU upgraded before they ship and and toss a 9800GX2 in that thing when it shows up :-). Not a bad deal at all IMO.
