You want a high end dell? Have you ever priced a replacement board from dell? Dell frequently charges $200 or more, and stops carrying the board after only 12-18 months. I have worked at dell manufacturing in austin several times. The low end pc's aren't a bad deal, but the high end stuff is too expensive. If you want a gaming system, I would learn how to build it yourself. If you live near frys like me, then the combos will often give you the motherboard for $20 or less with the cpu.
