New Dell Ordered

My new Dell computer should ship today. I ordered it on Thursday night at about 7:50 PM. Dell had a deal for 40% off desktop computers over $2499. The deal ended at 8:00 PM that night. I ended up buying a Dell Dimension 8400 Series with two 20” flat panel monitors.

The Specifications:

Intel Pentium 4 Processor at 3 GHz with 800 MHz front side bus
1GB DDR2 SDRAM at 400 MHz
128MB PCI Express x16 (DVI/VGA/TV-out) ATI Radeon X300 SE Video Card
160GB Serial ATA Hard Drive (7200RPM)
Dual Optical Drives 48x CD-RW and 16X DVD+RW
Two 20 in (20.0 in viewable) 2001FP Digital Flat Panel Display

The whole thing ended up costing me $1,618.80. Kind of pricy for a 3 GHz with a low end video card, but the two 20” flat panel displays were most of the cost.

I’m looking forward to its arrival so I can get it set up, and then get my old computer set up for Amy to use. She needs a faster computer to play the SIMS 2.
