New Core 2 Duo systems from Dell, HP, Gateway, Alienware, and others

Even though we lifted the lid on the new Intel Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme CPUs last week, along with early reviews of systems from Falcon , Dell, and Velocity Micro , there are even more desktops with Intel's speedy new chips being announced today.

We managed to get our hands on a few of these new systems, so the full scoop on the Dell XPS 410 , the HP Pavilion d4600y , the Alienware Area-51 7500 , and the Velocity Micro Raptor DCX is just a mouse click away.

We're also looking forward to getting our hands on Gateway's next-gen systems, the FX510XG, with a Core Duo E6400, and the FX510XT, with a Core 2 Extreme X6800. Both were announced today and start at $2,199 and $3,999 respectively. (Interesting to note that these Gateways come with ATI X1900 XT video cards--an interesting choice for a flagship Intel-based system in light of AMD's just-announced plan to purchase ATI.)
