Dell's new XP2 630 starts at $1,300

Dell is expanding its line of gaming systems today with the new XPS 630 desktop. According to Dell, it's the first OEM PC to support the Enthusiast System Architecture (ESA).

The XPS 630 features an NVIDIA nForce 650 SLI chipset, two PCIe x16 slots, four internal HDD bays, Corsair DOMINATOR memory, four DIMM slots, Light FX 2.0 technology and a 750W power supply. Optional hardware includes an AGEIA PhysX physics accelerator and a Blu-ray drive.

Given that Dell is aiming the XPS 630 at gamers, the company fully sanctions overclocking of the processor and memory subsystems. In addition, the XPS 630 comes with a brushed-aluminum chassis and can be ordered with either a red or black bezel.

"Since its inception, the Dell XPS line has been committed to delivering aggressive, competitive and attractive options for a broad spectrum of PC gamers," said Dell gaming head Arthur Lewis. "With the Dell XPS 630, we have the unique and exciting opportunity to offer a system that brings together the needs of enthusiasts and casual gamers."

Pricing for the XPS 630 starts at $1,249 and will skyrocket from there. The base configuration will get you an Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 processor, GeForce 8800 GT 512MB graphics card and a one-year warranty and in-home warranty service.
