    Aplogies for posting a very simialr question on another thread, but this might be more for pc gamers:

    Which of these 2 specifications for roughly 800 quid would you all choose? im really stuck. Any info on which has the better processor, graphics card etc would be most welcome and rep will be distributed. Will use it for music/word processing, internet research/heavy downloading, and some fairly heavy gaming. Cheers.

    Definately the Matrix 7300Sli But i would change the 2x7300 to just 1 7900GT and buy another one later on when the prices of 7900Gt further reduce.

    Don't get the Dell, the Matrix is an overall much better system. But i agree with Lecter, instead of two 7300GS's, get a single 7900GT.

    P.S - 800!!! Where are you planning on buying from?
