    Good work on the multi-item link search👍

    Dell Inspiron 5680 with GTX1060 looks like a great deal for under $1k

  •  

    I wonder if XPS tower with GTX 1070 will be available again!

  •  

    I ordered this one in the last eBay 20% off deal and the estimated delivery time was April 10th?!?! I received it about 2 weeks after I ordered it. Hope that helps!

    hrmmm, I spent $509.40 on a refurbished Dell Optiplex 9020 I7 4770, 16gb ram and 1050ti. Wondering if it was better getting the Dell Inspiron 5680 for $959.20 instead.

    •  

      Any SSD? I wouldn't pay almost double just to move from 1050ti up to 1060

      •  

        No, it came with a 500gb hard drive which is almost useless to me since I'm reusing all my SSD and HDD from my previous build. So in saying that, the 1TB hard drive which comes with this Inspiron 5680 would've also be useless for me aswell.

        btw, do you know if there is much difference between the I7 4770 vs I5 8400?

        •  

          yes. the 4770 is a quad core with hyper threading, giving it 8 threads on 4 cores

          the latter is a hex core CPU with 6 threads. Obviously, core count matters more so than the number of threads.

          At any rate, you're looking at a big performance jump, and this gap is also made larger due to spectre vulnerability and the performance penalties that hit older processors a bit more harder than newer ones. But if you're only using your computer gaming, you don't actually miss out much

          The GTX 1050 that you have is the one doing most of the work in games, not the CPU.

        •  

          If I get the 5680 and an SSD, is it easy to transfer the O/S onto the SSD?

        • +1 vote

          http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-4770-vs-I...

          You got a good deal with the 4770 and a 1050Ti, the 8400 and the 1060 is a better machine but then the 8700 and 1070 is better still. If you have no interest in high resolution, high fps or VR gaming then your original system will be fine for a few years. The 8400 and 1060 is a great performance per $ machine though, I've spent more than double for probably a 60% increase in performance

        •  

          btw, do you know if there is much difference between the I7 4770 vs I5 8400?

          There is a difference but it matters not much for gaming. I'm still running a second gen i7 (2600) and it's more than enough for gaming. The GPU is far more important.

          The 1050ti is a decent GPU. You won't be running 4k or 120fps anytime soon, but for $509 you got a real good bargain. It's going to run most games at 1080p and medium settings.

        •  

          @nhand42: oh ok, just that I have a 27" monitor 1440p

      Depending on whether you would make use of the stuff in the new PC. Part of why this deal is so attractive is because the price of DDR4 is insane and could account for 1/3 of that $959. Considering that buying a i5 8400 would set you back around $240, gpu around $300-$350, all the other stuff you can consider getting for "free".

      In short, the CPU you have would be good enough for a couple of years to come (as a gamer). Depending on the game though, the GPU might not. With the Dell above, when the 1060 seems to be getting a bit weak, you can always upgrade that.

      •  

        I'm hoping in 6 months time there will be a 2050ti low profile I can upgrade to :D

        •  

          if the 2050ti consumes the same or less power than the 1050ti that would be great, otherwise i wouldnt recommend it!

        •  

          @nairdajun: Why wouldn't it? Normally newer gen cards are more powerful whie being more energy efficient.

        •  

          @Homr: Thats just an assumption. For example, the new 8th gen cpus are NOT more energy efficient than the 7th gen in terms of power consumption.

        •  

          @nairdajun: What about GPUs? Which generation GPUS has gone backwards in energy efficiency compared to their previous gen counterparts?

        • +2 votes

          @Homr: All im saying is that you cant assume with these things, they may make it more energy efficient (usually they do), or they may use another method to get more juice out of the existing architecture (like sticking more cores onto it). The new architecture cards may be only more energy efficient by about 10-15%, and nvidia might juice it up more on purpose to make it a "worthwhile" upgrade (20-30%). Many things could happen.

          For example: GTX 750ti LP - around 114W, GTX 950 LP consumed approx 213w reference here

          GTX 950 reviews state that it provides approx 30% more performance over the 750ti, but for twice the power consumption?

        •  

          @Homr: Generally you get the performance increase with the same or less a power consumption with a process step reduction, so when NVIDIA drops from 16nm to 12nm or less, then you'll see that card you are after. I don't know when that will be, but NVIDIA have released the Titan V at 12nm, so mass market released products by end of 2018 or early 2019?

        •  

          @FabMan: I'm not wrong here, so not sure why the neg.

        • +1 vote

          @FabMan: Gave you one back. Nothing in life is guaranteed type neg? makes no sense, step down to 12nm should mean lower power consumption with decent gains. really hating the high GPU costs at the moment… Love VR and this is really becoming a thorn for it.

        •  

          @souljah: Yeah, so I could enjoy VR I just spent quite a lot of cash on a new system. I hope some more decent VR games come out to justify it.

    •  

      thats a great deal me thinks for 1050ti, where from link please?

      • +1 vote

        I won a bid from ebay for the optiplex and bought the parts separately.

        Optiplex i7 = $235.20 using the Pick5 promo
        1050ti = $239.20 using prewinter 20% off promo from PC Byte Ebay
        2*4gb ddr3 ram (second hand) = $35

        Haven't put it together yet, waiting on the GPU and Ram :)

    •  

      The 5680 with gtx 1060 would be about 20% faster than your rig for GPU. But seeing as you got twice as much ram (DDR3 but still) and the newer CPU won't make any difference for most games, I'd say your $509 rig is a better deal overall.

      Wait for GPU prices to drop and upgrade the 1050ti to a 1070. Upgrade to an SSD now of course.

    Isn't this deal better though? https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/365637
    I get that it's 8gb ram and no ssd but is the GPU worth or is it a miniscule difference?

    • +1 vote

      it says 128gb SSD. and yes i think that is better too

      •  

        This dell desktop is for those that dont want to spend anymore money I guess. with PCbyte package , you will need to add bigger RAM and bigger SSD which is about 230$ extra. So roughly 300$ more expensive than dell desktop but I think PCbyte is better deal than Dell . I wish i didn't buy the dell desktop on last round. but i m actually quite happy with dell desktop . It's really really quiet. but then i tried to do nicemesh and the GPU tem go up to 85'C so not good for casual mining. For the gaming side , i tried ultra setting for overwatch and i got 120fps without problem but GPU temp go up to 84'C. it's not really good with cooling i guess.

        •  

          I got the gaming Inspiron laptop from that deal too, haven't tried gaming stress yet so can't tell but got a hiccup with battery, it shutdown on me right after giving me the low battery warning, so not really happy, not sure if it's hardware or software problem

        •  

          Have you updated the driver's for the gpu?

  •  

    cheaper than in my country…
    if it is an internationally shipping, I am going to buy it.

  •  

    Can anyone tell me how easy/difficult it is to upgrade the XPS 13 to 16gb ? Is there a spare slot available ? Or do you have to remove 2 4gb modules and replace with 2 8's etc etc…

    Thanks

    • +3 votes

      Dell XPS 13 9360 has RAM soldiered on the motherboard and is not upgradeable.

      •  

        Ah the old Apple trick….. thanks for that.

        I think for anyone that plans on using one of these for anything semi serious is going to be hobbled by 8gb, especially given the spec on the rest of the machine.

  •  

    Hoping to find a good deal on a laptop around 1k that has 16gb of memory.

  •  

    How expandable are these computers? The $959.20 for a 1060 i5 is pretty good but in future if I need to SLI or upgrade the graphics card would it be easy? Would it fit a 6gb 1070?

    •  

      Yeah interested too. Thinking about getting a gaming computer and just upgrading piece by piece.

    •  

      from what i can see the dells share the same chassis, so removing the 1060 to fit a 1070 wouldnt be any issue. The only problem i can see is that 460W power supply, which we cant tell whether its a standard PSU or dell proprietary. They have a nasty habit of doing that.

  •  

    Are you happy with computer, is it reasonable quiet ..
    Did you replace the 1TB 7200RPM with a ssd drive , as i would think it would be extremely slow.

  •  

    Inspiron with 1070 or the XPS 8930 with GTX 1060 (almost same price after discount)? Bit skeptical about Inspiron after my last experience with the 8th gen 7000 laptop (turned out to be a dud and had to return it). Main use for casual gaming and mostly productivity (dev/media editing).

    With this good for gaming, is it good for memory intensive applications like 64 bit Photoshop, Lightroom and Premiere Pro, say, all at once?

    I got 5680 from last eBay deal and really happy with it. Only problem is the startrack delivery company. They couldn't deliver so I had to go to their depot to pick up. What's the point to get a courier that cannot deliver?

  •  

    Any good DD4 RAM (2666 Hz and above) deals?

  •  

    Anyone know if these are friendly for dual-booting?

    Thinking about Windows10 and Hackintosh mainly. But a multiboot for Android-x86 and Linux Distro (Debian? Mint?) would also be neat.

  •  

    Is this Meltdown & Spectre-proof CPUs?

    Should I wait for Meltdown & Spectre-proof CPUs before buying a new PC?

    I bought this and it has been standing in a corner for 4 weeks as I have no time to setup a new machine!

    Any tips on migrating my old machine to the new one?
    1) Old machine has a 2TB drive for documents and main applications drive I want to move over, and put this (new) 1TB drive in the old machine? (Old machine also has a 240GB SSD which I will leave as the main boot and OS drive).

    2) Old machine has win10 PRO - worth moving it over?

    3) How do I transfer my STEAM save games?

    4) Any application data I should transfer (Program Files)?

    5) anything else to watch out for?

    The two things I will miss from my old machine - hot swap HDD bay. I use it a bit to backup. Optical Sound out. … and a better looking casing,

    should probably have posted this under a forum!
    Bought a sale Vive headset, keen to have a full go on this new rig.

      1. Applications must be reinstalled again. You cannot 'transfer' most programs mainly because of dependencies.
        There may be some exceptions to the rule (e.g Software that was made to be portable) but generally speaking it's best to reinstall most of your apps, and Avoid simply copying and pasting the entire Program Files folder. You'll just end up with half of your apps working, and the other half buggy or completely broken.

      2. If you have a retail License of Windows, you can activate the key on your new Dell and it'll upgrade to a Professional version. Most people probably won't need a Professional version of Windows, unless you use your PC at work and want to join your company's domain and need Bitlocker encryption. If you have an OEM license this can be a bit trickier as OEM licenses are not meant to move from system to system, but you can try and see if the product key works.

      3. Try googling this.. You can generally move the entire Steam folder without much issues, but the program itself should be reinstalled again to prevent weird bugs.

      4. When you reinstall an application, you are often installing a newer version that what you previously installed on the old system. This often causes whatever you backed up to become obsolete and incompatible with the newer version of the software.
        Some programs might already have some kind of support for exporting your application profiles and data. Web browsers like Chrome or Firefox, can usually backup to the Cloud, and Office 365 also syncs to the cloud too.

      •  

        thanks!

        Happy with fresh install; just don't want to loose data, progress etc
        Will also buy and activate the new Mircrosoft HUP, which will get me office 2016 (from 2013)

    Got a 4k tv on the way, kind of considering getting a gaming rig for the lounge room. Will any of these cut it for 4k gaming on a 100hz tv?

    • +2 votes

      IMO we're still at least another generation behind in 4k. Others will disagree but a 1070 can run some games in 4K, others will struggle. Its so hard to paint games with the same brush when every game is optimised differently.

    •  

      Not really. I’ve tried a gtx 1080 on my 4K 100hz tv and most games struggled. Few rare exceptions - Mordor was good - but true 4K is still limited to high end rigs or next gen. Note that both consoles claiming 4K are cheating.

    Random questions about 5680.
    Anyone know how to get Teamviewer not to freeze the wifi card on Dell 5680?
    I can't remotely control the 5680.

    Thanks

    •  

      Sorry - no idea on the freeze. Have you tried playing around with settings (e.g. enabling/disabling UDP)?

      Also, have you tried wired ethernet as a workaround and if so does that have any problems? I'm considering buying the i7 256Gb model but if it can't run teamviewer properly (at least on a wired connection) I'll have to look for something else. Any info you can provide would be appreciated.

    Does the $1479.20 PC come with Windows installed on the HDD or the SSD or can you choose? Just wondering since I've never bought a computer with a SSD before so I don't know how it would work.

    •  

      Win10 is installed on the SSD. I bought one last ebay deal and it's really good. Only problem is that its only 128gb ssd and I may have to insert another ssd when I need it.
