Hardware Description

This was Dell's latest high- performance gaming computer. It had H2C (a high-performance cooling system) as standard, which was ideal for gaming. Its motherboard, the nVidia nForce 790i Ultra, was capable of overclocking its quad core Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9770 up to 3.64 GHz. Dual channel DDR3 SDRAM system memory was available in United States and UK.[10] There was a choice of colors also at some outlets. The basic model specs of the PC were: Intel Core 2 Extreme Processor QX9650 (3.46 GHz Overclocked), DUAL 1GB ATI Radeon 3870 X2 Crossfire X Graphics Card, 2GB Memory, 1TB 7200rpm Dual HDD. The base price in the UK was £2,499.[11] The system also came with an improved H2C cooling device, seen on ultra high gaming computers. This has since been replaced by the XPS 730x.
