Looked there. Bad thing is that you cannot get service warranty there.

I think this is a smoking deal. Should run anything you need to. $948 plus free shipping. Could use a better video card if you do any gaming.

It's alright, but 6G is probably overkill and he likely already has a display. For barebonish I'd roll this..

http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product...S&Sp=C&topnav=

If he wants all the other junk...

http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product...S&Sp=C&topnav=

Remember 2 year warranty by default on all this stuff from Costco, plus english speaking reps.

I was talking about me buying 3. With a 4850 card they should be good for gaming for a few years then just upgrade psu and gpus?

How much is a GPU upgrade via dell? IMHO, that's okay if you need the display. That new proc is supposed to be pretty damned good.
