First I have to say props to 'malmental' when he knows something he knows something even when Dell says differently.
Thanks guy wherever you are.
I have an i7 LGA1366 mini-tower unit and solid Satelite Notebook i5 with nVidia GTS350M.
I think I want something in between (desktop, smaller) and to build myself.
Also I'm thinking AMD Athlon II X3 or Phenom II X3 and mATX siz with mini-tower or smaller size case.
Any help please?
Thanks.

@ batuchka
a little too much with the cpu and the gfx card, like 'mal' stated I have a killer unit already, thanks.

Yep this was my $6XX hybrid HTPC-cum-gamer config for Full HD LCD TVs - one could naturally scale down as per needs/budget hehe

well I use my Dell i7 for gaming and some heavier task
and my laptop is an awesome unit for travel.
I do not want to go into the study and isolate myself from everything else becuase that's where the Dell is, no kids allowed.
I need a smaller unit for the front of the house for HTPC, internet, video, going to need MS Office, etc.
maybe even a light game or two.
going to need two or three different profiles becuase different needs for usage.
thanks.

Rana X3
880G IGP - HD 5670
2-4GB DDR3
