View Full Version : Can someone recommend (this) Desktop PC?

I want to buy a new PC desktop. All I really use my computer for is online poker, iTunes, basic media stuff, etc. I'm not sure what I need, but it's probably not much.

This Dell XPS 200 (http://www1.us.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/xpsdt_200?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs) looks cool. Can anyone tell me if it's a reasonable value?

with modest needs, i'm sure this system would work fine. the non-xps systems will be a better deal, but you may find the 'premium support' (i have no idea how good it is) a value-add. probably has easier resale on ebay too.

watch www.techbargains.com (http://www.techbargains.com) and you'll get a line on how cheap dell systems can go.

I would spring for as much ram as possible and a better video card. Looks like a decent system though for $1k.
