A lot of people do not like the X1300 Pro card, but for intermediate 3-D games it does a really good job. The integrated sound is suprisingly good. The two points that really suprised me were the really good looking and functioning case, and the biggest suprise is the quietness of this computer. I have had 2 previous Dell Desktops, and my Wife has a Dimension 8400, so I know how noisey Dell computers are. This one is whisper quiet. Great job on the sound dampening Dell! Oh yea, did I mention AMD 64X2 5000+ Processor? Very Good Value on this one!!
