    Well, it's for my wife as she's finaly got round to playing proper games. Finished Dead Space for the 7th time now ;)

    She's had the M1710 for the last two years now, but it's getting so dated that an upgrade was highly over due


    Specs as follows:

    Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor T9300 (2.50 GHz, 800 MHz FSB, 6 MB L2 cache)
    17.0" UltraSharp™ WUXGA (1920x1200) TFT with TrueLife™
    4096MB 667MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM [2x2048]
    320GB Free Fall Sensor Raid 0 Stripe - 2 X 160GB (7200RPM) Hard Drive
    Dual 512MB NVIDIA® GeForce® 8800GTX cards in SLI
    Grey with White LED Backlights
    4Yr XPS Premium Warranty

    Got a coupon for 10% discount online so the final price was'nt to bad

    nice. you should be happy with that, each one of those GTX has 96 SP's.

    you should be able to use any game with little or no issues. ;)

    It all varies. I got mine XPS 1530 in 6 weeks while other got theirs in 2 weeks. There was no compensation from Dell for the long delivery time... So the bottom line is to look at the expected delivery date from your Dell purchase.
