No Thanks. I3 Gaming machine is way out dated, I5 or higher and a GTX Video card, which gets too Hot in an X51 and consumes too many watts causing stress on the power supply.

Upgrade to a lower end i5 for $100 more (3GHz). An i3 shouldn't be an issue for a pure gaming machine. What gets me is the GPU. I wish you could add a 660 or at the least, a 650. Also worth mentioning is that this is an Ubuntu system. No Windows is included in the product description.

Alienware might have been a decent deal with Windows 7, not Linux...

Dell says that the core i3 3220 has turbo boost 2.0. Click the link for the X51 and check for yourselves.

Always nice to be reminded on why I build my PC's.
