Great deal. Would get a 240/256 gb ssd (or bigger, if you have the bucks) and make that an insane machine.
Let us know if the 3930K can be overclocked by the user.

I am planning on getting an ssd...hopefully soon...bucks is not the issue, just the
setup / two OS's, etc.. need to read up more before I do it.
Overclocking...I haven't tried it yet...can't get to the bios with my wireless keyboard, will try when I have another day off...It is supposed to be overclocked to 3.9 already...I don't see it anywhere though... After some reading, Dell only OC's the first core...so, not sure if it is OC'd or not.
Windows rating (not the best, but something to compare), Processor @ 7.8, memory and graphics at 7.9, HD at 5.9 :-(
System is running very well so far...tried some tests, all ok... getting 18.51GF on flopsmeter. Didn't try games yet...
Thermal sensors show 27-29 degrees at any given time.
Will let you know once I try overclocking and also when I get an ssd :-)
Just got to bios...had two overclock profiles available to load, loaded #2...temp are up to 32, getting 20.65GF..
All stable so far, will try manual overclock soon...
Went into bios, and manually overclocked the processor...increased all cores (not just one, like dell had done)...went to 45 for each core...online test was great, but. prime 95 gave me
bsod in about 25 seconds...
so, adjusted to 43 for each core...so far...stable, running 24.13GF...temps holding at 30 or nearby...
about to read up more and go further...much further...system has a lot more potential...and I am about to push it...
cpuz at 4.3 ghz...and I haven't touched anything else....
Plenty options here...
