Hey I have that same Dell, but what I did with mine is I slapped an nvidia 6800 in it. I love the look of you're PC better though, because mine only has 2 GB of RAM and is horrid at video games.

How do you like the 730? I was planning on using the 4GB version for a budget build for my friend.

I'm honestly surprised how you can find the graphics card of any good value. Infact, I'd say they have terrible value. The GTX 650 can't be .. what .. $50 more, but is something like 5x the performance.

I mean ... if you're happy, who am I to burst your bubble?
