I looked at systems that have PhysX. Alienware has it, but it only works with a single 7900 GTX (not even ATI). Falcon has it with Quad SLI, but no X-Fi. Dell is the only one that has X-Fi, PhysX, and Quad SLI together. I don't know if X-Fi is worth the performance lost from moving from FX to EE, but it might be (10% more performance with X-Fi).

lol a dell huh, you can notice the cheapness of those things right out of the box,the mouse is so cheap you can shake it and it feels hallow inside lol,you would also need 4 gigs of their generic ram to equal performance of 2 gigs of slow ram,been there done that and i wouldnt recommend a dell to my worst enemy,i once had a p4 2.6 gig with 1.5 gig of ddr and a 6800gt and it wouldnt even play sims 2 it was so sluggish,i even broke the backspace button by just typing

Uh, this comes with a Logitech mouse. I don't think Dell will sell a broken down $9930 system.

Quad SLI will run on any motherboard with 2 16x slots. I also believe it will run on lower clocked slots according to the Inquirer. And yes, games do utilize quad cores. X-Bit-Labs did a review on Dual Opterons Dual Cores utilizing games at the end of 2005 I believe.


No, they don't utilize them. If the Review that you're talking about is the same that I readed, numbers where pretty similar to what you can find in a similar Single Core or Dual Core Desktop machine. Where is the extra performance that comes from they utilization then?

Dell could have pocketed more in the past. I once went on dell.com for fun and customized one of the regular XPS 600's, and i got it up to 12k just with hardware, and that was with 6800GT SLI. Wow i frgt those cards existed. Wow technology is going fast /dry.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="<_<" border="0" alt="dry.gif" /> . too fast.

I did a little pricing
Pentium 965 $1140
Quad SLI board $215
2GB DDr2 667 $155
Dell 3007 $2200
7900 GTX $530 x 4 = 2120
2 10000rpm raptors ,but 160 gb, estimate 300 x 2 = $600
400GB hard drive $215
XFi Fatility $293
XP $140
Ageia Physx chip....we can only guess, lets say $500
Other hardware, mouse, keyboard, etc $200
Case plus powersupply, $150-200

I total up 7978....

But let me put it this way....Dell is probably making a lot more...and I mean a lot.

thats one helluva cheap quad sli board XD

the two raptors would be 280x2=560

and since the thing has a paint job id say itd cost more on the case

and somehow i think they wouldnt use generic corsair ram.. i mean ive never bought a computer before... so i wouldnt know, thats just my thoughts.

They'll need it. At 130 watts (not overclocked), you could heat a small apartment.

Well, then what would the average X2 be good for heating? The average doublewide? Most X2s are 110-watt parts, so really, I think it's about time for people to get off the "Intel chips run sooo hot..." "How hot are they?" kick. Properly cooled, neither will run too hot. Improperly cooled, both will.

Of course, but where does all that heat go? It doesn't just disappear. It goes out the case, on to your legs or desktop.
I wasn't talking about cooling the CPU, though - it's the 140 degrees out the back... yes the X2 also.

I guess I think about it more as an IT professional. When you've got 10, 15 or more servers in a rack, they need to be powered and cooled properly...

does having 10 or 15 servers in a rack make the air that much hotter? I've never been in a server room that didn't have it's own climate control system. I'm no IT pro, but it doesn't matter if you're using Intel, AMD or SunSparc servers, if they're not kept cool, you have problems.

Very true you wouldn't want your 50 Million$ Servers burning out and leaving you too hang. But im sure they must even have backup for the climate control incase of a power loss.
