Dell XPS 630 Power Desktop PC

 

Customizable desktop system provides affordable performance in a stylish package.

Competitively priced

A few chip-set limitations

In general application performance, this XPS 630 (equipped with a 3.16-GHz Core 2 Duo E8500 CPU and 4GB of DDR2-800 Corsair Dominator memory) delivered a WorldBench score of 114, whereas the gaming XPS 630 (equipped with a QX6850 CPU) achieved a score...

Dell's XPS 630 is a stylish and competitively priced mainstream gaming PC that can be souped up with extras such as an Ageia PhysX accelerator, a Blu-ray Disc drive, and up to 4GB of DDR2-800 Corsair Dominator memory. And though Dell recently...

Good performance ; Dual graphics cards

A few chipset limitations

SLI configurations tend to provide their greatest benefit when powering games at higher resolutions--say, 1600 by 1200 and above. If high-resolution gaming is your thing, you might want to upgrade from the bundled 22-inch wide-screen LCD (supporting...

Dell XPS 630

 

The Dell XPS 630 ($1,269 direct) represents Dell's entry into the sub-$1,500 gaming PC space. Not everyone needs a $5,000+ gaming box, especially if you just want to play the games and don't care much about frame rates. You won't be raving about the...

Gaming performance for a mainstream price. Quiet operation. SLI and CrossFire options. 750W power supply. Easy to open and upgrade. Intelligent use of lights. Can play Crysis

Still needs more power (SLI) for highest gaming performance. Requires a screwdriver for some upgrades

Dell's XPS 630 slots in between the multimedia XPS 420 and the ultra-gaming XPS 720. It's a "mainstream gaming" PC—one that ultimately outshines the others in the field.

Dell XPS 630i

 

Many enthusiast users snigger at the mention of Dell, however at Driverheaven we know there are a percentage of users who either don't have the skillset to build their own computer or who just don't have the time. It is also worth mentioning that with...

Dell XPS 630 Gaming Desktop System

 

If you've followed the tech sector for any appreciable amount of time, you've no doubt heard the tale of Dell Inc. - one of those stories where a guy with a dream founded a company and eventually built it into a corporate giant. Right from the...

Completely configurable, down to the bezel color ; Supports NVIDIA SLI and ATI CrossFire ; Sleek exterior ; Overclocks well

Slight gap when closing side door ; Could use additional fans on rear ; Built around the older 650i chipset

: Just to set things in the proper perspective here, the zero-point system we used in our benchmarks should not be seen as true competition. Differences between chipset, and more primarily the CPU and GPU really make these two systems different...

Dell XPS 630 Desktop

 

It's not intended for go-for-broke gamers, but Dell's XPS 630 is an outstanding entry in the new category of high-quality, reasonably priced mainstream gaming machines.

Good gaming performance for the price; lots of expandability options; attractive case design

Productivity performance lags just behind similarly priced competition; low DX10 frame rates at highest resolutions

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

CES 2008: Dell XPS 630i and M1730 WoW Gaming Systems

 

Dell was showing off their latest gaming products during CES and had a couple really interesting systems that we can show off today. The Dell XPS 630i series is going to be an entry level XPS gaming system with a complete system price tag starting at a...

The business side of the notebook is very similar to a standard Dell XPS M1730 with the exception of the silk screening just below the 17" LCD display. If you look close, you'll notice that the system has a WoW oriented wallpaper displayed on the...

In the box you'll also find a full user manual in English, multi-lingual electronic safety instructions, and a full-colour quick-start guide. All of these are contained in a lovely leather XPS folder with pockets for 16 DVDs, two Velcro cable ties and...
