Dell XPS 730x

 

Another season, another iteration of the Dell XPS 700. As the "mid-level" version of Dell's high-end gaming system, The XPS 730x ($3,809, direct) is positioned somewhere between the $1,700 base model and the top-of-the-line XPS 730x H2C, which can top...

Sturdy case is easily upgradable. One-kilowatt power supply. ATI CrossfireX- or Nvidia SLI-capable motherboard. Innovative lighting. Blu-ray reader. Available in an H2C version. Cheaper than the $5K club members. Bluetooth included

Big and heavy (if you ever have to move it). Could use another data drive. No hard switch for reset or power

With the XPS 730x, Dell brings Core i7 to its flagship gaming PC line. It's still pricey compared with some cheaper, less-expandable competitors, but it has a lot of potential for future upgrading.

Dell's Core i7-powered XPS 730x offers performance and features that will appeal to every gamer, but at a price that might give some pause.

Very good performance, Attractive design, Nice gamer-friendly features

Expensive compared to similarly equipped Core i7 systems

This hard-core gaming computer packs in two video cards, water-cooling and an insanely fast processor

 

Dell's behemoth XPS 730x gaming PC is overkill. Two video cards, water cooling, a mammoth processor, 6GB of RAM and a garish full tower case combine to make a machine that will handle any recent game thrown at it, and its performance was excellent...

Massively overpowered, water cooling cuts down on noise, well-constructed case

Enormous, prohibitively expensive, water cooling isn’t particularly quiet, no eSATA on front panel

My Extreme Machine

 

Machine worked out of the box without any problems. Has exceded my expectations

I thought it took to long to build and ship, almost 8 weeks. But it was worth the wait

What a system

 

All in all I'm so happy with this computer. When I start looking for a new one, I always get hooked on the higher end systems, as happened here. I'm happy to own one, even though I will have to eat beans for months to help pay for it.

The XPS 730X is a massive system, I'm not sure where to start. As has been stated before, this thing starts up like a jet plane and then quiets down to hardly any sound. And it is huge, read the dimensions to make sure you have room for this system,...

Did I say this was massive? I was glad I wasn't alone when the box came, I would have never been able to get it out

Totally Happy with this system

 

Surfing around on the Outlet last week, and found this config for less than $2000.00. I7 940 (Air Cooled) Radeon 4870 x2 (2 gb) 6 GB DDR3 2x 1 TB Hard drive 19 n 1 Reader w/Bluetooth It shipped quick, and in my hands in less than 3 days. Although...

Everything! It's faster than anything I've ever used, and so far, stable as a rock. Everything is nice and smooth on my 24" monitor running at a full 1920x1200. World of Warcraft and SPORE never looked so good! As an IT tech for over 25 years, I can...

It's a little larger (physically) than I expected, (had to modify my desk a bit) but that's minor compared to the POWER of this thing

Consumer review by:

Well ........

 

Pricey unfortunately. i7 920 running at 3.8 hz saves over $700 Smokin processor, but a 9800GT - go for the extra $200 and get a GTX285 - still saving $500 Was it 3 gigs of RAM - what's wrong with 6 (3 is a good start to run Vista)? Performance 4 Value...

Very worthwhile

 

Incredibly stable

Certainly a bit costy
