Conclusion: As cheap gaming towers go, the XPS 625 is hard to beat. Our test rig had nice style, respectable hardware, and some handy utilities gamers are sure to appreciate, all for just $1,099. What’s more, Dell offers an even less expensive default build with a single ATI Radeon HD4670 that sells for just $999. A word to the wise: If you manage to find a decent gaming rig for much less, you should probably start running, because the police will likely think you stole it.
Pros: Respectable performance; sleek shell and AlienFX lighting deliver fine gaming style; handy gaming utilities come pre-installed; low price
