New computer specs

Alrighty I am getting really close now to ordering my new computer, maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan this is gonna be sweet!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've changed a few things and upped the awesome since my last spec post here. The biggest changes?
  • Dell XPS 420 instead of Dell Inspiron 518 (much more awesome)
  • Less L2 Cache, More FSB
  • Dell UltraSharp monitor instead of E-Series... oh yeah, and 2 of them :)
  • 512Mb ATI card instead, and with 2 DVI ports for the 2 Digital Flat Panels
  • 2 year Warranty instead of 3 - it's a Desktop so this is less important
  • 3 years of McAfee Virus protection
So sweeeeeeeeeeeet. So the new machine looks like this:
  • Dell XPS 420
  • Intel® Core™2 Q8200 Quad-Core (4MB L2 cache,2.33GHz,1333FSB)
  • Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium
  • Memory: 4GB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 800MHz - 4 DIMMs
  • Monitors 2 x Dell SP2009W 20" Widescreen Flat Panel Monitor with Webcam
  • Video Card: ATI Radeon HD3870 512MB GDDR4
  • Hard Drive: 750GB - 7200RPM, SATA 3.0Gb/s, 16MB Cache
  • 16X CD/DVD burner (DVD+/-RW) w/double layer write capability
  • Sound Card: Integrated 7.1 Channel Audio
  • Dell 19 in 1 Media Card Reader
With tax and shipping it comes out to about $1500... that's including 2 Dell UltraSharp 20" Monitors?!?!??!? Totally nuts. This is amazing. Great deals too. I am pretty sure this is the one I am going to go for, and the Video Card is a great upgrade too.
