Here are the spces

The deal $899 was for Inspiron 580 (Dell) with following Specs (Price is now $1,149) with these specs.

Processor Intel® Core™ i5-750 processor(8MB Cache, 2.66GHz)

Operating System: Window 7 Home Premium, 64bit

This deal is for one of my friends buying a computer and he isn't sure if this is worth it or not. I'm not sure either, I think it is but I need a second opinion. Your suggestions and comments are greatly appreciated.

If it comes with a monitor then yes otherwise you could build one with better specs for that amount.

No, it's not worth it. You could build a computer that performs over twice as well (X4 955, 5850) for $200 less. Including a monitor, it'd be about the same price.

Nope - the video card in it is pretty weak and you can do better at that price ! - Just a quick example from an E-mail today -- Here's a Newegg promo today with an I7 860 system with an ATI 5770 for $999 - So I'm sure by looking around you can find better deals.

As of today, 7/21/2010 . . . You can get the Dell system you speced out for $699.99 by following a link off of CNET . . . . it also includes a PCI Express wireless card. I believe the deal is good through August 14th.

That's still not a good deal. You can get an X3 440 and an HD 5770 for the same price, and still have much better performance.
