Said the hell with it and canceled my order... went to best buy and picked up my own P-6831FX. Best Buy does price matching and it goes on sale this weekend for $1199.
I would like to say the screen is really bad however. Ton of light leakage. What screen did you replace it with? I think that will be my first upgrade. It's so bad the windows task bar looks all washed out. But for $1199.......
I agree - the only reason I bought this model was for the great GPU. Everything else in it is socketed or replaceable anyway.
I've already replaced the hard drive with faster drives (2x200gb, 7,200 rpmers), and am about to replace the CPU with a faster one (T9300).
I have a 1,920x1,200 Dell screen that I have laying around (pulled from a Dell Inspiron 9400) that I might to try swapping out as well to fix the screen issue (the stock screen isn't really that bad - It's not great - but it's not that bad).
To be honest, ever since Vista came out a full year ago I haven't looked back to XP. I guess if you play around with vista and do some tweaks it runs without excessive problems.
I would think XP would piss you off more with the lack of drivers with this machine.
