I was advised that my offer on my preveious dell system wasn't ideal for gaming " $1,281.07 Studio XPS 9000, Intel Core i7-920 processor (8MB L3 Cache 2.66GHz) 12GB DDR3 SDRAM at 1066MHz Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 1.8 Gigs 16X DVD+/-RW Drive 1TB Serial ATA 2 Hard Drive 7200 RPM " That the GTX 260 is an deadend card. Dell offered an upgrade to an ATI 5870 for an extra $93, so $1,388.15. Is that a better rig?
