      welcome to the club ;)

    Is the PSU capable enough for this build?

    •  

      The psu is 500w as specified and has been configured and tested by Dell to work with this system. If you have any issues you are covered by Dell 1yr warranty.

    I have been thinking about buying a gaming computer for a while now as I have never owned one but my friends are starting to get into it. I'm a complete noob but I was thinking about getting something that I can upgrade instead of replacing when it becomes obsolete. All the comments on this post seem to say that it cant be upgraded, is that just a particular part cant be upgraded or is it just expensive to upgrade because you need to buy the bits from dell, or is it the case that it cant be upgraded at all and I will basically have to replace it when it becomes obsolete?

    •  

      You can upgrade certain components of this pc. Examples are ram, gpu, cooler, storage, etc. The thing is, a system of this caliber should last you years before needing to upgrade. Most users only recommendation is upgrading to 32gb of ram which is relatively simple and possibly upgrading the cooler for better heat dissipation. Both can be done to this system!

      •  

        How can I do the upgrade of the RAM and cooler ?

    •  

      You can upgrade the main parts readily, but some come from the background of changing everything. For example, you can modify the graphics card, memory and expansion slots as you need. But if you want to go down to motherboard level you can't. Some like complete flexibility which this won't give.

      When I bought the XPS 8700 7 years ago I thought the exact same thing, however I just kept playing and playing and never thought again about upgrading until a couple years ago when I put in an SSD. At the start of this year I replaced the thermal paste.
      They were literally the only upgrades I made.
      Now I've got this bad boy on the way :P

    Is there a spare PCIe slot for a TV card? It looks like it only has three slots in total. One is for the graphics card. Are either (or both) of the others free?

    •  

      I think there will be 1 PCIEX4 and 1 PCIE x1

    These things are room heaters. 125W TDP CPU, 220W video card. Yikes!

    Do these have a dBA rating with all the fans running on high during summer?

    Pity they don't have 3yr warranty… 12months seems a bit low.

    How good is this for rendering/editing 4K videos? Or is it just geared towards gaming?

    Nice pc, but my budget is only $1300, the card is an overkill for me. Wish there was a deal for like 1660ti or 2060

    •  

      There is this with a 1660ti for a little more than your budget ($1679.20)

      •  

        Thanks, but only a $300 saving going from 3070 to 1660ti?

          you are better off buying this 3070 and sell the GPU on FB marketplace/Gumtree for $900-1k.
          Use that money to buy a good value GPU like RX570-580

          •  

            @wjb: Thanks thats a good idea, but can I really sell the GPU for $1k though?

          •  

            @wjb: Doubt it. Plus from memory the gtx/rtx are oem cards that’s missing a back plate, so it looks ugly af in a transparent case.

    • +5 votes

      Please do not buy a Dell pre-built that's not a decent deal like this one, which even this I would not purchase. For 1300 you should expect at least a Rx 5600 xt or even a 5700 xt. These dell units have horrible airflow, cooling, questionable PSUs, proprietary connections and only a year warranty. These Dell pre-builts give the illusion of a top end machine, but apart from the CPU and GPU, which dell cannot manufacture, everything else is well below in terms of quality compared to the CPU and GPU.

      •  

        thanks, will not buy then

  •  

    Is it possible to get more ram , bump up to 32 ?

    •  

      You can upgrade the ram as suggested in previous comments.

    Was looking at HP. The price of this is too good. Bought.

      Welcome to Dell :P

      •  

        Hope I don't regret it as HP comes with 3/3/3 warranty.

  •  

    Why can't Dell give us 50% off any alienware stuff! Because they are overpriced!

    Can anyone confirm how much extended warranty to 3 years is please. Cheers

    Thanks purchased.

    Emailed Dell with my order number to request removal of optical drive, and free replacement to low voltage DDR4 ram. This will help with the power supply issue/stability. Received OK confirmation within 1hr!

    Great deal!

    •  

      Good work, glad they could help.

    •  

      What was the cost difference?

      •  

        I believe he stated it was a free option.

        •  

          I would have kept the optical drive in that case…

          •  

            @GaAs: Just another power sucking device I don’t need.

    •  

      Was that through ebay messages, or an email address?
      If an email addy, can you post it?
      I'm still waiting to hear back from them.

        You can contact/message the seller (eBay dell store) via eBay. What are you waiting to hear back about?

      •  

        I believe he emailed them. You can email support or contact them through ebay seller messages. Hopefully you hear from them soon.

        Edit: thanks for the update BongoOB

    •  

      Sounds like a good idea. No point having the optical drive these days. Any downsides with lower voltage RAM in terms of performance? Bit of Googling suggests there shouldn’t be.

    I bought the 8930 / 2060 deal earlier this year but this was too good to pass up.

          Don't do that… clean install Win LTSC.

            @raybies: I agree a fresh install is always optimal. It all comes down to motivation xD

        •  

          Yeah, I had come around to that myself. Don’t want to risk stability.

  •  

    This one is nice enough but I would still expect one of AMD+RTX3080 to beat other ozbargain Desktops

  •  

    Apparently the fans can be really loud ?

    •  

      I can't comment on the fans, but you can definitely reduce noise by going Noctua fans (much quieter). I am not sure if this will affect your Dell warranty, so please check that before customisations.

    Component wise, a great deal. However considering the 500w power suply, ugly case, ram speed limitations and bad cooling I'd wait for techfast/others to respond instead of jumping on the bandwagon.

      Currently to my knowledge, this would be your best bet. Feel free to do a quick search on ozb or staticice for comparisons.

  •  

    Do i still get warranty if i swap out like gpu and other components from the system?

    •  

      I think any modifications will void it

    •  

      By the time you need to upgrade componenents, the warranty would of expired by then.

  •  

    What can the DVD drive be swapped for? if anyone knows. Thank you

    •  

      You would have to contact Dell support to find that out. A user swapped it out for lower voltage ram and to save on wattage, but support would be your best bet.

      •  

        Thank you, I'll contact them 👍

    hey @KeRRR Does this come with Thunderbolt? the spec on the website seems to be only USB 3.1 on the usb-c connector.

    •  

      I've read the manual for this PC and I don't think it comes with the thunderbolt. I wish they can have one as well.

  •  

    Waded through the comments and tried to find more info about it online generally, but does anyone know what actual model of RTX 3070 is being included in this?

    Tempted to buy it just for the 3070 but not if it's going to be a horrible cheap blower type model.

    •  

      From the comments above it seems to be the blower type.

      •  

        I'm not aware of any 3070 blower models existing though…not sure that kind of traditional cooler design would be enough to keep a 3070 cool!

      •  

        I am not aware of 3070 blowers either? I don't believe it is a blower type, but can't comment on it atm.

    Geez if this i7-10700k, RTX 3070 config can get away with:

      - a generic 500w psu, 
      - a little case without top venting 
      - only that little fan at the back ...
    

    Does it mean that we've all been massively overspecking our PSUs, Cases, and Cooling solutions and all the associated discussions on these forums have been pointless?

    • +4 votes

      Yup, power of marketing, geeks, geeky sponsored influencesrs, overclockers (like its built to fly to the moon and back) no one actually took anything into any real life calculation. Think that the whole industry has been overblown out of proportion, it's all about achieving sales. It's good to have quality components and some more air but it's gone too far overall.

    •  

      I do think people go a bit overboard with PSU wattage, although it often doesn't add much to the price, and people seem to value the headroom more than efficency.

      But having read the Reddit and Dell forum posts about the 8940 (linked in previous comments here), it's a bit of a reminder that the top-end desktop CPUs, especially on the Intel side, really do need a decent heatsink and airflow even at stock speed. This system's design seems to be borderline and possibly even inadequate, given the trouble some people are going to to mod the thing to improve cooling despite not overclocking.

    •  

      Yes, I ran an i5 6600 + 1070 with a 200w psu.

      https://www.techspot.com/review/2124-geforce-rtx-3070
      Ryzen 9 3950X + RTX 3070 pushed total system usage to 371 watts. So for the i7 about 350w, which gives you ~50w extra for periferals and 100w surge margin.

      I would have preferred a 650w PSU, but we just have to settle for edequate.

      WTF y'all running that needs more than 650w?

      Most PSU's efficiency curve is optimal at 60-80% load, while platinum ones is 70-90%.

  •  

    If the PSU fails, can I get a replacement from any computer retailer or can it only be purchased from Dell ?

    Honestly looking for a new PC. Mine is like 8 years old, piece of junk. I've been so out of the loop and all the cyber deals are coming up…. Would this be a great buy? I mainly need it for normal browsing, and gaming if the GPU is decent enough for modern AAA games.

    •  

      Buy first, justify later

  •  

    Has anyone tried getting a discount to remove the optical drive or getting it taken out and swapped for an upgrade elsewhere? Contacted the seller through ebay but no response as yet.
