Dell Creates New XPS Desktop Monster

Think of every flagship component out there then stuff them into one case.

It seems that new XPS systems are more regular than hardcore Kellogg’s Bran Fakes eaters so it’s no surprise that Dell has graced us with another monster system with which to kick off the New Year.

The ‘XPS 710 H2C Edition’ is the hefty mouthful the company has chosen to describe this state of the art gamers’ paradise which now features an Intel Core Extreme QX6700 quad core CPU overclocked to a ridiculous 3.2GHz.

Grunting and groaning alongside this is a pair of nVidia’s latest GeForce 8800 GTX graphics cards running in SLI and a stupidly large 4GB of 667MHz DDR2 RAM. Dual 160GB 10,000RPM drives mean the madness doesn’t stop there though the screams and cackles of its insanity will be kept well muffled thanks to a custom built ‘liquid-to-air’ cooling system. A Dell UltraSharp 2007WFP widescreen 20in LCD, panel mount speakers, Razer Tarantula gaming keyboard and Copperhead gaming mouse are optional extras.

The XPS 710 H2C Edition goes on sale now with prices starting from £3,398.99 (that does ”include” shipping though!). If you can afford one I suggest you get your butler to place the order now…
