Penth4 3.73mhz precessor

IV been following the "many" generation of the XPS since gen 3 and I wonder when the Pentium 4 3.73 Dual Core HT will be available. Also the XP 64Bits is not yet an option. Is there a reason? r they waiting for the new Windows Vista?

 

I know some other like Alienware it is available, but from what I’ve read about them, there support is not that great.

Alienware has a better rating then Dell. He meant since Gen 3. Not just Gen 3. I think they offer XP x64 on the XPS600.

I have an Dimension XPS Generation 3 and it will not support Dual Core Processors. It will support the Intel 64 BIT Technology processors.

Well I’ve done some research on the Web and AlienWare seems to have a good product and I love the look. Also the concept of "liquid cooling" is very attractive but when it comes to support ... the problem begins

 

I took it from this article >>> http://reviews-zdnet.com.com/Alienware_Area_51_ALX/4852-3118_16-31006749.html?tag=uolst

 

Personally I have a Dimension 8400 and my video card (9800 pro ATI) went dead and just a phone call and they sent me back a new one. So I’d say Dell has a pretty good service.

I have a P4 3Ghz and no problem , but all the review seems to point to AMD as best for gaming.
