Dell XPS 720 Spec Leak
Dell's upcoming XPS 720 gaming tower has been all but exposed today through a service manual. Previewed through the company's own IdeaStorm submission, the aluminum chassis will be available in the company's standard silver standard case or the glossy black model reserved for the water-cooled H2C. Choices will be similar to today's models with the choice of CPUs ranging from the mainstream Core 2 Duo to the quad-core Core 2 Extreme. NVIDIA's GeForce 8800 GTS and GTX cards will form the backbone of graphics; in a rare addition to mass-produced PCs, the 720 will have a separate 300W power supply for its graphics to allow dual-card setups without causing undue strain on the main system.
Focusing only on service, the manual doesn't refer to launch details and avoids touching on the possibility of the planned case window's inclusion as standard or solely as an option. The existence of the manual and the inclusion of current processors points to a relatively close release for the upgraded system. [via Engadget]
