Thinking on buying a new PC and have limited my choices between an Inspiron 530 and a XPS420.Both these machines are quad core Q6600 2.4ghz 3gb Ram.Just wondering performance wise is there any difference between the inspiron and the XPS.

Apart from about £320 difference in the price for the base models!
The XPS has a better graphics card, 9800GT compared to a ATI HD2400 Pro, and comes with a 24" LCD instead of a 20" one.
But is it worth the extra £320? Not in my opinion.

I looked at the Dell website.
Other than the case and possibly the PSU, the difference appears to be the availability of a dedicated graphics memory greater than 256mb.

I would choose the XPS out of the 2
