Subject:  New Dell XPS 8500 ordered. Date:  11/15/2012  2:57 PM
Author:  jerryab Number:  182548 of 197845

i7-3770, 8GB, 1TB HDD, DVD/RW, USB3 (2 front/2 rear), USB2 (4 rear), Gb Ethernet, wireless a/b/g/n, Bluetooth, and misc.

Dellivery expected first week of Dec.

No eSATA--so will need to add at least one card, maybe two (PCIe slots).

$700 + $140 in add-ons (nVidia GT 640 video card and Win 8 Pro pre-installed). Has 4 memory sockets, 2 used (2 x 4GB), 2 free.

H77 chipset (wanted Z77)--but all XPS 8500 systems have same mb. Dell does not offer the Z77 on a mb. Maybe Alienware (owned/sold by Dell) might have a Z77 mb, but that is (IMO) stupidly expensive for what you get.
