  1. No.

    More accurately, it's an excellent CPU, but completely a waste now because the i7 965 beats it and is $500 cheaper. The i7 965 Extreme is currently the fastest CPU that money can buy, if that's what you're looking for.

    Of course, you could just get the i7 920, overclock it to 3.7GHz, and have more than enough performance for just about anything for $1200 less than a QX9770 (and $700 less than an i7 965)...
  2. I concur with cjl.
  3. Core 17 build all the way, they start at $1500. For around $2500 you will have something that the Dell product designers can only drool over.
  4. Core i7. With the money no object attitude, might be worth going with the 940?
