The system's based on Nvidia's nForce 650 SLI chipset, so it's ready to be configured with a range of Intel CPUs - including overclock-friendly ones like the latest Core 2 Extreme parts. The Corsair Dominitor memory's overclockable too, Dell said, and with four slots on the motherboard there's room for plenty of it.

The XPS 630 will sport two PCI Express x16 slots, and punters will be offered a choice of two AMD CrossFire or Nvidia SLI boards for graphics.

Expansion options a-plenty

Buyers can also opt for an Ageia PhysX physics processing card. Other options include a Blu-ray Disc drive, and a pick of either a red or black front panel.

Up to four hard drives can be fitted into the angular casing, which provides all the usual desktop connectivity options.

Prices will start at $1249 in the US when the XPS 630 goes on sale tomorrow. Dell said it will offer a pre-configured Core 2 Quad Q6600-equipped version for $1299 that also includes a pair of GeForce 8800 GT 512MB graphics cards.
