    There's nothing wrong with Dell, they are one of the best company's around, and stand by their warranties. You can pay $500,000 for a sports car and 2 days later have something go wrong, that's just the way the ball bounces.

    There's a hell of a lot of people that would disagree with you, you do not get as large as Dell by selling junk, they would have folded years ago if what your saying was true. I paid $1400 for my 2011 30 inch Dell Ultra Sharp, and I love it.

    So what broke on the Dell computers? Your being very vague. Bad motherboard, bad PSU, bad HDD and did they call Dell. If they did, they would be happy. Me thinks your stretching the truth.

    As I said, the one that a customer gave me was working at the time, but it didn't have enough power to do what he wanted to do with it. He came to me and I built him something with a lot more power. He tried his new PC out and just left the Dell with me.
    It was 6 months old and had nothing wrong with it at all. I had parts on the shelf to upgrade the RAM to 8GB of Geil high performance memory, and I had a MSI N430GT video card for it too.
    I pulled the 160GB 5,400RPM drive out of it and put a 500GB 7,200RPM drive in there. It was a lot faster with my improvements and I was going to sell it to make a little money off of it, but my wife saw it and used it for an hour and told me, "thanks for the computer honey!" (baby doll gets what she wants)
    She used it for a few years and I finally upgraded her to a Vision APU system.
    I refreshed the OS on that Dell, cleaned the dust out of it, and gave it to my sister who just loves it. It still works fine, and the one part that I was worried about (PSU) has NOT failed yet.

    It's a good little PC and it looks good too.

    HDD was loud, mobo crapped out etc. I know a lot of people that have had problems don't remember each one. Most did call Dell but it would have cost more than the computer was worth to fix it.

    Bought a Dell XPS9000 three or four years ago for other half and has worked flawlesly.

    Didn't want to wait for me to build her one at the time.
    Got into a Ram issue with the salesman and techs at the time of delivery but they worked it out.
    If they hadn't, Even offered to take it back exspence free if still not satisfied.

    Only problem with most Dell's is forget clocking them.

    Only way to upgrade that area is to change chips.
    920 good enough as to its use but if could get a 980 chip cheap would upgrade for native speed,
    as the Bios allows it.

    Buy another one, NO

    Later
