    Hello I am thinking about buying a dell xps 8800 but just wondering if you could tell me which specs are better and also will it play games I wont be using it all the time for games just now and again I just want a really fast pc thanks the 3 systems are.

    System 1:

    Intel® Core™ i5-2320 Processor (3.00GHz, 6MB)
    6144MB Dual Channel DDR3 1333MHz [2x2048 + 2x1024] Memory
    1.5TB (7,200rpm) Serial ATA Hard Drive
    1GB AMD Radeon HD 6670
    Integrated 7.1 with THX® TruStudio

    System 2:

    Intel® Core™ i7-2600 Processor (3.40GHz, 8MB)
    4096MB Dual Channel DDR3 1333MHz [2x2048] Memory
    NVIDIA® GeForce GT 530 1GB DDR3 Graphics Card
    500GB Serial ATA (7200RPM) Hard Drive
    Integrated 7.1 with THX® TruStudio

    System 3:

    Intel® Core™ i7-2600 Processor (3.40GHz, 8MB)
    8192MB Dual Channel DDR3 1333MHz [4x2048] Memory
    NVIDIA® GeForce GT 530 1GB DDR3 Graphics Card
    500GB Serial ATA (7200RPM) Hard Drive
    Integrated 7.1 with THX® TruStudio


    Oh and also could someone tell me the difference between these graphics cards and are they any good thanks.

    NVIDIA® GeForce GT 530 1GB DDR3
    NVIDIA® GeForce GT 545 1GB DDR5
    1GB AMD Radeon HD 6670

    on system 3 I could have 4gb of ram and the gt 545 instead would this be better.

    What will the PC be used for apart from gaming? also do you have the price for each system?

    I would personally go to with system 1, reason is it has the better graphics card and you really do not need an i7 just for gaming.

    Most games will not make use of that many cores on a processor, you will be fine with the i5 which is a quad core processor.

    Can you change the graphics card? something like the Radion 6870 would be a lot better for gaming.

    All 3 have plenty of processing power, however the graphics card is not the best in any of them.

    Graphics Card Option

    After looking into it a bit more I was just wondering if this graphics card is better because the radeon 6870 is a bid out of budget I was looking at system 2 with a NVIDIA® GeForce GT 545 1GB GDDR5 thanks
