Dell XPS 625

 

While pricey gaming rigs from the likes of Alienware and HP's Voodoo unit often grab headlines, these machines are well out of reach for most consumers. Thank goodness for systems like Dell's affordable and stylish XPS 625, which demonstrates that you...

Respectable performance; sleek shell and AlienFX lighting deliver fine gaming style; handy gaming utilities come pre-installed; low price

Few perks; optional upgrades can really boost the price; struggles with higher graphics settings

As cheap gaming towers go, the XPS 625 is hard to beat.

The Dell XPS 625 is a strong Phenom II-based desktop PC, but if you're willing to spend an extra hundred bucks or so, you can get even more for your money.

Strong design ; Phenom II CPU

Slightly pricier PCs deliver much more performance

We've thrown a bunch of numbers at you in this review. But it's important to get a fair representation of this Phenom II-based machine, as AMD sees its newest processor as a viable alternative to Intel's quad-core lineup. "Alternative" might be too...

The $1499 (without monitor) Dell XPS 625 is at the high end of our sub-$1500 value PC category in both performance and price. But if you're willing to consider systems priced just a few hundred dollars more, which throws Intel Core 2 Quad-based systems...

Strong design ; Phenom II CPU

Slightly pricier PCs deliver much more performance

The Dell XPS 625 is a strong Phenom II-based desktop PC, but for an extra hundred bucks or so, you can get even more value.

The mix of components is a little odd, however. Since Dell has chosen to go with all Black Edition CPUs, you can find it equipped with the Phenom II X4 940, Phenom X4 9850+, Phenom X3 8750+, or Athlon 64 X2 5600+. You won't be able to get one with a...

Good price performance ratio; nice touches abound, including pre-strung drive cables; lots of expansion

Lack of flexibility in choosing options; better graphics needed

Dell's new budget gaming rig, built around AMD's Dragon platform, offers reasonable performance, but needs a better selection of available options.

The Dell XPS 625 Desktop Computer, Model: XPS625 has been outfitted with some really great features and a stable processor so you can easily perform your duties without fear of slowing down the computer.

Though 5-star ratings on luxury class gaming PCs are common, most people can't afford the Xtreme price tag of such Xtreme machines. Back in the real world, Chad Sapieha has found a power-player PC that's actually affordable.

Technology journalists love to evaluate high-end, bleeding-edge rigs like the HP BlackBird 002, the Alienware Area-51 m15x, and the Dell XPS 730 H2C. It's the geek equivalent of taking a half-million dollar sports car for a test drive. That said, when...

Dell XPS 625 Review

 

AMD's new Phenom II microarchitecture represents an opportunity for manufacturers to refresh their product lines, and Dell isn't skipping the opportunity.

So AMD has come out with its updated microarchitecture, and it's coming out kicking. The name of the game here is definitely more evolutionary rather than revolutionary, but the new Dell XPS 625 takes what it has and runs. The system itself is not...

Dell has incorporated AMD's new Phenom II processors into its mainstream gaming line, and the results should satisfy casual 3D gamers, if not die-hards.

Solid gaming performance; attractive, feature-rich case; good configuration options, expandability

Intel Core i7-based PCs may offer better value

All these results are unquestionably acceptable; you can definitely do better, but you will have to shell out increasingly large sums of cash. Between these two systems, we'd rate the Gateway an overall better value, but if flash is important to you,...

Mixed feelings surface with Dell's new gaming rig

Nice design ; Decent performance

Not the best CPU ; Graphics should be better for the cash

But if you're willing to consider systems priced just a few hundred dollars more, which throws Intel Core 2 Quad-based systems into the mix, the Dell XPS 625 loses its mojo.

The Dell XPS 625 is a strong desktop-PC contender, but if you're willing to spend an extra hundred bucks or so, you can get even more for your money.
