    And what Dell would you recommend to upgrade with the ATI and PSU? I would like to get a Dell with an i7 processor.

    Thanks for your help
    EDIT: It looks like the only one I can find on Amazon with an i7 is the Dell XPS.
    PSU's Wattage vary between GPU models, but any PSU will work with any PC.
    for example:
    An AMD 7970 requires at least 500watts+ whereas the
    GeForce GTX 680 requires 550watts+
    so any PSU of 600watts would run either of them.
    as such it wold be best to find a GPU then ask for a recommended PSU if you're unsure
    PSU's are relatively cheap anyways, and i'd recommend Corsair for a decent Power Supply Unit.

    heres a link to Dells XPS page:
    http://configure.us.dell.com/dellsto...el_id=xps-8500

    this model comes with an i7 and a choice of either AMD 7770 or GT 640.
    this PC, with the 7770, should run games reasonably well at med/high settings.
    whats more, both AMD 7770 and 7970 require a minimum of 500watts so switching the GPU's at a later date should be somewhat straightforward.

    a benchmark of the 7770 on Crysis 2 with hi-res textures.

    Settings
    DirectX 11
    High Resolution Texture Pack
    Ultra Quality settings
    4x AA

    Full overveiw here:

    this card is no slouch.

    thus far i've tried to stay close to the original amount given. but if you're interested;
    its worth playing around with the selections of this alienware.

    Thanks for that Dell website, that was exactly what I was looking for, a computer with a good processor AND a graphics card. Most PCs I found had good processor, but a bad graphics card

    So.. I'm going to have to save up $1,300. lol

    But thanks for everyone's help. Right now, I think I found what I want.
