Dell Xps 630 Gaming Desktop Pc Drops Below $1000 for First Time Ever

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  May 20, 2009

Looking for a SERIOUS gaming PC, but don’t want to spend thousands of dollars? Now’s you’re chance to grab a beefy Dell XPS 630 for just $999, the lowest price it’s ever been offered at (about half of what it originally sold for back in 2008).


The well-reviewed machine is loaded with a powerful Intel Core 2 E8400 CPU, running at 3GHz, with a 6MB cache and 1333MHz front-side bus. Graphics come courtesy of an SLi Dual nVidia GeForce 9800GT with 512MB of memory. And while 2GB of high speed RAM is de rigeur these days, you can easily upgrade as much as 8GB if you want to max things out. And there’s a speedy 7200RPM 500GB SATA hard drive to make sure your games and videos run as fast as possible. As for the pre-loaded OS, you’ll get Windows Vista Home Premium, 64-bit Edition to support all that RAM.


The deal is available over at Dell Home, and is only currently set to run for 1 day. So if you want to get your hands on a great higher-end PC without completely breaking the bank, you should check it out.

Of course if you want the smokin’ Red bezel chassis, you’ll have to pony up an extra $20 bucks – pushing the price just north of $1000.
