Dell's new gaming desktop to start at $5,999 USD

Dell is taking factory overclocking to the next level with its new XPS 720 H2C Edition gaming desktop. The XPS 720 H2C Edition leverages technologies from a number of well-known companies including Intel, NVIDIA and Corsair.

The XPS 720 H2C Edition uses an Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700 processor that has been factory overclocked to 3.46GHz. The processor along with 2GB of 800MHz Corsair DOMINATOR DDR2 memory (factory overclocked to 1066MHz) find a home on an NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI MCP motherboard. Graphics duties are handled by two 768MB NVIDIA GeForce 8800GTX graphics cards operating in SLI mode.

In keeping with its over-the-top bravado, the XPS 720 H2C Edition also incorporates LightFX which was first seen on the XPS M1710. By using the LightFX toolkit, users can control three light zones, eight intensity levels and 16 colors on the computer case.

"Hard-core gamers and technology enthusiasts continue to challenge us to push limits, and we relish turning those challenges into reality," said Glen Robson, general manager for Dell’s worldwide gaming products. "Dell is committed to delivering the best PC gaming experience available, combining leading-edge hardware and accessory innovations with the most extreme games, and the XPS gaming products are designed to do exactly that."

The Dell XPS 720 H2C Edition starts at a whopping $5,999 USD. For the price of entry, you also get dual 160GB SATA/300 10,000 RPM hard drives, a 2x Blu-ray drive, Creative X-Fi XtremeMusic sound card, 24" UltraSharp 2407FPW flat-panel display and your choice of Windows Vista Home Premium or Windows XP Media Center Edition. Dell's decision to continue support for Windows XP is a result of customer feedback from its Direct2Dell blog site.

"If you can find a PS3 anywhere in North America that's been on shelves for more than five minutes, I'll give you 1,200 bucks for it." -- SCEA President Jack Tretton
