The computer has officially been ordered

I finally ordered the computer! It is scheduled to ship on February 22 (a week from today). The ATI Digital Tuners as expected are scheduled to ship later. The estimated date given today was March 7 (3 weeks from today). Hopefully my order matches the trends that I have seen online and ships earlier than the estimated date.

As soon as I have a definite ship date for the tuners I will schedule Time Warner and the arrival of my tuner cards.

I called into the Dell sales desk and was able to negotiate an extra $300 off. It doesn’t hurt to ask! I used the savings to buy an extra 750GB hard drive from NewEgg. So my total storage in the PC will be 1.2TB. When I add the Windows Home Server I will have PLENTY of storage for all my media.

Here are the full specs:
