Dell introduces another range topper

Dell has unleashed the new XPS 700 for the European market. The XPS 700 features the same case design of the previously announced Dell Concept PC, but features slightly watered down hardware specifications. Whereas the Concept PC featured a blazing fast NVIDIA Quad SLI graphics subsystem, the XPS 700 can only be optioned up with dual GeForce 7900 GS SLI graphics cards.

The XPS 700 can be had with a 3.73GHz Pentium D Extreme Edition 965 processor, 2GB dual channel DDR2 533MHz memory, 1TB SATA RAID 0 (2x500GB drives), 16x DVD burner, 13-in-1 media reader, Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Music card and a Ageia PhysX physics accelerator card.

A base system will run you £1,375 ($2,581 USD) while a fully decked out system will set you back £3,763 ($7,065 USD). Expect to see the XPS on our shores shortly.

Why 7900GS?

Why do you suppose they're only offering 7900GS and not 7900GT or 7900GTX? Seems odd.

Maybe the power supply couldn't take it...?

Perhaps to try to keep price down, though it seems odd to do that with a P4 EE chip. Perhaps since this is catering to a crowd that does not know the difference between the 7900 GS, 7900 GT and 7900 GTX except the price?

Seriously doubt it.

The psu is 650W at least from the boxes I have seen with dual-displays.

Cost could be one reason. Availability another perhaps.

Maybe the active bundled sku's are simply not active currently.
