Michael Dell's keynote
at CES yesterday
included news of the latest in their line of XPS PCs. The aggressively named Dell XPS 600 Renegade's most notable
feature is its inclusion of four NVIDIA 7800 SLI graphics cards, for a total of 2GB of VRAM. While this isn't the first
time we've seen four GPU cores inside a
, it's the first time a commercial PC manufacturer has offered such a powerful bundle out of the box.
If you're going to have four graphics cards inside your machine, you've got to have the components to back 'em up.
That's why they've also included a factory overclocked Intel Extreme Edition 4.26GHz processor along with a total of
650GB of hard disk space. This is after you get over the flame grilled case design, which hopefully isn't a forewarning

pick up this monster?
Apparently it'll be selling within the range of $4,000 to $7,000. At that price, we hope they remember to do a clean install of Windows
