I have been lurking on Dells site considering a 9300. My question is: since this PC uses the Sonoma chipset and since the nVidia 6800 go (256 bit) GPU is an option, will it make a huge difference for processor speed? What I am considering (to save some $$$) is to order this thing with either the 740 (1.73 GHz) or the 750 (1.86 GHz) processors. I was just thinking of getting it with 512mb ddr2 and of course the nVidia GPU. Oh, and I would also be getting the DVD burner and the 7200 rpm 60gb drive. Soooooo, with all this said, do any of you see any real differences between the processor speeds with this configuration. Also, as I think of it, is there really any significant difference between all available CPU's for the Sonoma chipset(730, 740, 750, 760) with the configuration I am looking at? I do get the EPP discount and I want to stay at or below $2000. Any input on this would be greatly appreciated.
