But the cost factor at the time (new 1720 = $600 more than the Dell Outlet 1705 I priced, with many more options) and the lack of DVI port forced me to chose the 1705.
I would not have planned on playing games on it or as my sole machine, until I found these forums.
So yes, Joe Blow wouldn't care and go for the 1720.
If you are reading this post though, you'd be shamed if you didn't go with a 1705 (until the 1730s/SLI combo comes out, then you are exclused).
