Dude, you're getting a $10k Dell

When I think of a gaming PC, I think of maybe an Athlon FX-60 processor with two top of the line graphics cards running in SLI or CrossFire mode. Never would I imagine, however, that I would plunk down $10,000 -- not far from the base price of a 2007 Toyota Yaris.

Excess is best at Dell with its new XPS 600 Renegade. This limited edition, custom-painted monster comes equipped with an Intel Pentium 965 Extreme Edition processor overclocked to 4.26GHz. In addtion, it features two 10,000RPM 160GB Raptor hard drives in a RAID-0 configuration plus an additional 7,200RPM 400GB hard drive. Also included is a Sound Blaster X-Fi Fatal1ty sound card with front-side controller and 2GB DDR2 667 memory. To top things off, the XPS 600 comes paired with four GeForce 7900 graphics cards running in Quad-SLI.

With all of that processing power, the XPS takes full advantage of AGEIA PhysX processing and can run applications at up to 2,560 x 1,600. By the way, you can enjoy all of this goodness on the included Dell 3007WFP 30-inch widescreen flat panel monitor.

If all of this sounds enticing to you, the XPS 600 will be available in limited quantities for $9,930.

Easy enough to get rid of, just pop in the OS disk and reformat. It's something you'd have to do with a BYO anyway.

No, the Dell OEM restore discs are just Windows (whatever version you got). All the other junk is spread out over other cds. The only time you would reload all the bloatware would be if you used their "PC-Restore" feature.
