I'll give your suggestion some serious thought but if I am to go through all the trouble, I might just consider building my own I guess.
Also, I found out that the GTS240 on the Dell is basically the same as the 9800GTX which seems to have mixed reviews here on STO.
Maybe I'll wait a few days to see what other peoples experiences have been.
The 2nd system is a more powerful gaming system IMO. But still a GTS240 is kind of weak, you would be better off building your own system IMO.
However, don't get me wrong, the GTS240 is still a great performing card, more than powerful enough to run STO. I've run STO on an 8800GT which is similar to the GTS240 and it ran great.
