p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Dell XPS 8920 SE Special Deal


Just placed an order with Dell for this desktop for $1620 incl. shipping. There is currently a $200 markdown, plus 10% off the entire order, along with a reduction in the GTX 1080 video upgrade from $500 to $200. Here are the major specs:

> BDRE Drive (Reads and Writes to Blu-Ray disks)
> 7th Generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700K Processor (8M Cache, up to 4.5 GHz)
> 512GB M.2 PCIe x4 SSD + 2TB 7200 rpm Hard Drive
> 16GB (2X8GB) 2400Mhz DDR4 Memory, up to 64GB
> NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) GTX 1080 with 8GB GDDR5X Graphics Memory ($200 upgrade, reg. $500)
> Windows 10 Home-HE (64bit)
> Dell Laser Mouse, Dell KB216 Wired Multi-Media Keyboard

This is the best price and configuration I have seen this year, especially with the $300 reduction on the GTX 1080 upgrade from the GTX 1060. These are all limited-time reductions. So, if you are in the market, you will need to act quickly. There is a lower model without the Blu-Ray and a 256GB SSD, but, you can only upgrade to the GTX 1070 (for add'l $200).

Not looking forward to all the software and data conversions lying ahead

The x4 is referring to the PCI-E socket/lanes - it has only one SSD.

Looks like you can build the same PC with likely higher quality components for about the same money any day of the week:

Some things we would need to know to determine if that Dell is a good deal:

What motherboard?
What PSU?
What M2 SSD?
What case?
What CPU cooler?

The things they don't mention in detail are often areas they cheap out on.
