(Sorry for the blurriness, I have a sucky camera.)

Let the fun begin!

Lets see-I got:
2 Dell GX260s
3 Dell GX270's (the dimension has a GX270 board in it)
1 Dell GX280
2 Dell UltraSharp 15" Monitors(one is on my desk).

The GX270 desktop is the only one with bad caps.

LOL especially the Simon chassis line. They have the worst power supplies Dhell ever used.

Personally, I have One Dhell XPS Gen 3 Laptop, three Dhell desktops, a 4100, 4700 and an XPS 600 and all are still up and running. These were made back in the good ol days. When Dhell actually made decent quality products.

Tail, yes I regret that I gave away my earlier XPS generation model to my brother, as it was a solid performer with few issues; but I thought it was time to update technology wise. Unfortunately, the irony is I never checked for sites like this because I expected my most recent Dhell XPS to be the same quality, instead of the crapola I got :oops:

Tailmon, you say you have a xps 600, I was just wondering about your configuration. I have seen online that you can only put up to 2 gb memory in it, 8 is possible but anything between 2 to 8 it will not boot, is this true?,, also I have heard upgrading the graphics card is made difficult by different power connectors on the newer cards, also i have read it is not possible to put a core 2 duo or pentium dual core processor in it, anything you can share would be nice. My system is a Pentium D 830, 2 gb ram (4x 512), 2 256mb 8700 gtx geforce video cards, 750 gb hdd , and a recently bought western digital black 1 tb tdd (for extra storage and it is to go into my next pc) (as this system was bought at a police auction the 2 hdds it shipped with were not included) both optical drives crapped out on me and have been replaced, I even added a floppy drive because well it has space for one, lol, creative xfi sound card, I run windows 7 64 bit,,, a strange thing with this systemwith both vista when i used it on this and windows 7 is the machine wont boot unless there is a windows cd in the drive, weird huh?

Due to the operating system (XP Pro) and other limitations all systems pretty much are limited to 2 gigs that actually show up when you fill the slots with more than 2 gigs. I acctually have 4 one gig sticks in mine. yet it shows only 2 gig on the config. I'm also running a 3.2 gig processer I'm also running an invidia GTX with 512 memory on it (Believe its about 2 years old now)
I found after about a year that the dual video card config the system had was becomming an issue because of the heat it made. I ended up removing one card and the back filler plates to help with it. by year 3 I had replaced the cards with a single Newer and better Nvidia card that had better cooling than the strange who knows what video cards Dhell used in my system. I also put in a XFI soundblaster card for sound over the crappy one Dhell had in the system.

Pretty much the only other operating system that a XOS 600 prob could run is a Vista that Dhell was offering at the time. Running windows 7 is like trying to squeeze a garden hose worth of information through a straw without at least 4 gig of memory and the correct processer for it.
