  • This a good deal, anyone?

    I would normally build one myself out of bits from Umart, but i'm wondering with this sort of discount - might be better to get the Dell….

    • I tried to do the same specs on PCPP and this is cheaper, pretty tempting to sell my laptop and buy this tbh. Does Dell charge a restocking fee for return on eBay?

    • Theres a big hidden cost with a Dell/prebuilt system, which is how hard it is to upgrade. They often use limited or propreitary PSUs, the motherboard will be some weird version, locked bios, there will often be poor clearance to fit a slightly different sized card upgrade, hard to add in better cooling etc. I cant speak for this exact one, but if you want something that you can upgrade at your leisure, i would not recommend it. That being said, if its a big enough bump in specs compared to the price, and you plan on running it exactly as is, could be worth it.

  • Nice deal. Anyone know what the PSU stat's are, is it air or watercooled, is upgradeability easy or hard?? Thanks

  • Not bad. Warranty could be better

  • with a >2k pricetag, i would definitely look at procuring parts and DIY build, you can get branded ram at 3600mhz, gpu, ssd and psu for that kinda coin. also it's a full sized atx, nothing special, the market is price competitive for big cases.

  • How is this in terms of upgradability?

  • Yes sometimes the Dell deals can be 10-20% cheaper than if you build yourself, but in this case you can get at least the same result yourself. Only a 500w psu with a generic case here.

  • God that motherboard I/O looks trash, it's a desktop throw in every port possible. Like no digital audio out, surround sound or even USB-C. Admittedly i'd still also want PS/2 but I get that may be a bit ridiculous…

  • Well, I don’t have this exact model but bought XPS 8930 model last September. Also bought 4 year extended premium support.
    Pros:
    1. Competitive pricing
    2. 2TB hdd failed after 4 months and got that replaced within 2 business days, so prompt service without many questions.
    3. Performance is good for my use case of casual gaming and analytics work (RTX 2060 and i7 9th gen).

    Cons:
    1. Piss poor thermal performance. For a desktop, this machine regularly hits 70s without much load (room temp around 20C or lower) and early 80s after gaming for 30 minutes (Witcher 3, Just Cause 4, etc.), so I had to reduce the maximum processor state (disabled turbo) and now it stays a bit cooler. Now ideal temperature (after thermal paste reapplication) in Melbourne weather is around early 30s, but haven’t really checked gaming performance post the disabled turbo state. The hdd caddies at the bottom, if filled, adds to the poor thermal flow issue and the hdds also ideal in early 40s. People had better thermal performance using ‘k’ version fan though and better thermal paste.
    After seeing this post just now, read a review on reddit as well, where the user is cribbing about the same issue on XPS 8940.
    So, please do plenty of research before buying this if you are a power user or a gamer. Please reply if you have further questions regarding the previous year’s model, XPS 8930.

  • Supporting @rockford, I purchased an 8930. It is very noisy, I’ve had technicians out to replace parts. I’m not 100% happy with it.

    Quick and rough estimates of a better DIY build. Prices can be lower if you do some research and not needing new machine ASAP.

    ATX Mobo with AC

    Better CPU cooler
    Better mid sized chassis
    Upgradable

    Minus proprietary crap
    Added DIY knowledge

  • if you are an enthusiast and are into overclocking etc, you can forget it with Dell machines. The BIOS is locked.

  • So, for the exact parts this is cheaper. BUT, if you went for a 3700X instead of a 10700K you could definitely do it for a chunk cheaper for not a chunk less performance. Peace of mind knowing which parts you chose too.

    • You forgot windows 10 system and service.

      • No one actually pays $160 for Windows 10 though, Dell sure don't as an OEM. If you wanted service you'd have to get a store like Centrecom or Scorptec to build it with warranty, or you could pay if an issue arises. I have to admit service is the shortcoming, but you won't need to get service nearly as often when your components are far more reliable.

  • What would this CPU be used for? I want to understand what purpose shall this suffice apart from gaming?

  • Anyone knows any place in Aus selling Ryzen 9 4900HS laptop with 2070 on it or higher?

  • Not sure if I should wait for the RTX 3000 series…

    • I would. Rumours are that it will be announced in August and released September.
      AMD Graphics Cards to be released at same time as PS and Xbox in November.
      Originally I thought NVIDIA would have the higher performing cards, but it looks like AMD will give them a run for their money this time.
      AMD is rumoured to have secured TSMC for their production whereas NVIDIA may have gone with Samsung.
      In summary, I think there will be a good level of competition in the next gen of Graphics Cards.

  • Argh, what have they done to the XPS? Uglier, fewer ports, boxy design… guess cost cutting in effect.

  • My experiences with these as I own a G5 Gaming Desktop and spending time on the Dell forums as I have done some additional upgrades to mines.

    • They come with a 460W Dell OEM PSU 80-Bronze
    • M2 SSD is a Kioxia (Toshiba Memory Corporation), Hard drive is a Toshiba 7200rpm HDD.
    • OEM stock memory is Micron. (They own Crucial). The motherboard is picky with memory however Crucial ones work from feedback on the forums (and I have since replaced my sticks with Crucial Ballistix sticks).
    • From my research in the Dell forums, the OEM motherboard is an Intel one made for Dell.
    • Cooling was an issue with my machine as it only had stock Intel cooler which could not handle the heat and throttling on the CPU (I've retrofitted a Coolermaster TX3 CPU cooler since and temperatures are back to normal levels).
    • RTX 2070 is apparently made by Galax.

    After my additional work, the PC runs fast in games now with no throttle (running on Alienware AW18D 34").
