I bought last week a dell 9150 from the outlet shop. It is as follows. 2.8ghz pentium 4 d 820, 2gb ddr2 533 ram 320 hd (2 160 Raid Striped) 16 dvd/rw keyboard etc. 256mb x600 hypermemory g card. All for £520 delivered. I bought FEAR and due to the graphics card it looks like the first halflife as it has no graphical finery!! So i've been looking around the site and thinking either a better graphics card or just to build from scratch. As a better graphics card is gonna cost upwards of £100. Other dells come with an nvidia 6800 but they do not say what version. I'm totally confused with Amd and intel cpu ratings eg is a 3700+ better than a 3.0ghz p4? At the moment the dell is being returned on tuesday so i need to decide if i can do better before then. Any help appreciated. I want to do my usual cad, photoshop, dvd burning and play some stellar games. I have a pioneer 106 burner in my current lowley duron 800mhz! Cheers.
