Dell XPS 625

Dell today used CES to launch its first gaming desktop to use AMD processors in place of Intel's. The XPS 625 mid-tower shares the same custom-lit aluminum case as the XPS 630 but switches to an AMD 790FX-based mainboard and can be equipped with one of several overclockable Black Edition processors up to and including the 3GHz, quad-core Phenom II just introduced at the same time. All video card picks are equally AMD-based and scale up to dual Radeon HD 4850 cards in CrossFire mode.

A base system also costs significantly less than the XPS 630 and starts at $999 with a 2.9GHz Athlon 64 X2, 2GB of memory, a 500GB hard drive and a Radeon HD 4670 for video; moving to the highest-end processor adds $375 to the base price. Options exist to equip the system with as much as 8GB of RAM, a Blu-ray burner and 1.5TB hard drives.

Systems ordered today start shipping in early February.
