I have a dell xps studio 435mt core i7 920 with a dx58m01 motherboard Is this worth up grading and how can I get the most out of this for gaming. Or should I build a new system. I can spend up to 2k.
Thanks for the help

whats the issue and the rest of your specs? monitor resolution, PSU, and video card? the i7-920 is a great gaming CPU.

Honestly I would strip that computer of useful components like that i7-920 and build around that. If you can cannibalize some other components, you would need a case and PSU, motherboard, and GPU.

Assuming Dell is using the standard ATX form. I've seen some crazy crap from Dell.

I have a XPS 435MT with I7-920 2.67G as well! I just upgraded it last weekend with a Corsair 750 HX modular cabling system power supply ($128 after rebate) (note: I do not want unneeded cables inside the PC to slow down airflow and ventilation). I've also put in a new Sapphire HD 6870 graphic card ($169.99 after rebate). Both new upgrades work beautifully for me! You can upgrade your XPS 435MT and make it a PC with the latest technologies.
