Hello,
I have a question for anyone who would know, i am planning to buy a computer for my family that will mostly be used for normal computing and gaming. I have decided on the Dell Studio XPS, with the i7 processers.

now im wondering if i can, when the computer comes, take out the video card that is in their, and exchange it for another one, probably one of these two.....

The reason im wondering, is because the video cards require the space of two physical slots. Does anybody know if i could do this.

and on a side note, if i could also change the power supply if i needed too?

Thanks in advance.

The XPS Studio has a small case and I doubt a high powered power supply will fit in place of the 360 Watt that is standard. It can be ordered with a ATI 4870 video card - what card did you want to use? (the links you gave are dead) With a Dell PC it's best to order the best system you can afford and don't count on upgrading it later.

The New York Times said:

You can find flashier PCs than Dell's $1,299 Studio XPS, but few have as much power where it counts. We don't recommend its small, pared-down case for upgraders, but this PC will satisfy anyone who needs a loaded, powerful PC for gaming and consumer-level digital media editing.
