I have one of the DX4860 flavors (either the UB33P or UR33P). They're nice, but that $749 price is somewhat inflated. A lot of DX4860's had regular retail prices in the $500 to $600 range. I think mine retailed for $600. I got it for $299 refurbed from redtag last june, and I think some people had luck getting a similarly spec'd dx4860 from best buy instore clearance for $310~320). Mine had basically identical specs (i5-2320, 8gb ddr3, 1 tb 5400rpm drive, dvd-rw). More ram, but a smaller and possibly slower hdd.
I don't know about this model, but my model was obviously a best buy return and it was relatively free of bloatware (I think all mine had windows 7, nero, norton, the stripped down office 2010 and a best buy store app/link/icon).

If you have a 2-3 year old PC or a laptop, you will get a bigger bang for the buck if you upgrade or add a SSD rather than buying a new PC. Right now 250GB SSD is going for under $200.
I agree with this - I installed the Intel 330 240gb ($139.99 BF Newegg special) and a radeon 7750 ($70~75 AR at the time I bought the computer) to my gateway dx4860 and it makes for a snappy computer for a total outlay of about $515.00 (monitor and keyboard/mouse carried over from previous c2d system).
