Is the m1730 worth it?

I want a powerful laptop for animating, playing games, and for media purposes as well. Does the dell xps m1730 fit the grade? Or is it a waste of money?
Here are the specs I plan to purchase:

Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Extreme X9000(2.8GHz/800Mhz FSB/6M L2 Cache)
Genuine Windows Vista® Ultimate Edition SP1
17 inch UltraSharp TrueLife Wide-screen WUXGA
4GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz
RAID Performance: 640GB (2x320GB) 5400RPM
Blu-ray / DVD / CD Burner (Blu-ray Disc Drive)
NVIDIA® SLI™ Dual GeForce® 8800M GTX with 1GB GDDR3 Memory
Intel® PRO/Wireless 4965a/g/n Mini Card
Dell Bluetooth Travel mouse
Built-in Wireless Bluetooth 355 and Wireless USB plus Belkin 4-port hub
9-cell Primary Battery and 9-cell additional Lithium Ion Battery
Integrated Sound Blaster Audigy HD Software Edition
Multimedia Cable Kit

If there is a better option, feel free to say so.
I don’t want a mac because I like playing lots of games. Not just a few…

By looking at the specs, it looks like top notch. You have the best and fastest mobile processor out there. You have the max amount of RAM and blu-ray. The video card is also great, it has a full gigabyte of memory, better than any others. You probably have the best one out there. Your laptop costs like $3000 or more for that.
