Just started shopping for new home PC and came across this daily Dell deal.

XPS 8300 for $999 ($449 off).

Haven't bought a home computer since 2004 so completely out of touch; have just used work supplied laptops.

Primary uses will be; web surfing, torrenting, managing family pictures, streaming video to PS3 and HTPC, Office Suite and occasional light gaming (SC3, Civ 5, new SimCity when it comes out).

Is this Dell overkill?

Also, considering buying the UltraSharp U2142M monitor on daily deal.
