    Dell XPS 600 Renegade Quad SLi

    With Dell delivering this system they are not only showing their size and influence in the market but they have raised the bar and made it harder for the high end system builders, such as Alienware, VoodooPC and Velocity Micro, who were less than impressed with the fact this had launched with Dell. When we spoke to NVIDIA they acknowledged that there were a number of reasons but mainly down to the fact it was a large financial investment from both parties.

    Even if i had that amount of money to waste, i wouldn't spend it on that given its a Dell and its based around an intel chip.

    Precisely. I realise Dell have sold their souls to Intel, but anyone with a modicum of PC knowledge knows that if your intended purpose is gaming, it's much better served with an Athlon 64.

    Intel do seam to have their foot in the door with SLI and nVidia, but that was the case back in the day when it first came out too, when I perswaded dad to get a Righteous Voodoo2 (orchid did amazing things with their rendition of the voodoo2, even more groundbreaking than that chip was) i had dreams of SLi. But by the time the cards had fallen to a cheap enough price for this, that card had long time been superceded by a matrox AGP card. Leaving it with me, and my AMD system. The point of this nostaliga is that my AMD system was barly stable enough (this was K6-2 eria) and it was generally excepted with my (economy) choice of chipset and CPU it was just not going to ever work in SLI.

    Now when AMD are no longer the economy choice, It boggles the mind as to why nVidia have gone with delltel for this. The awnser quite simply will be intel's developer support. They are just much better. If you look on AMD and Intel's site you will see intel have lots more info, its a platform thats been extended on for some 20 odd years. That will of definately effected their choice. If SLI was thought to be unstable, then far fewer people would consider it.
