Dell XPS 8700 Intel Core i7 3.40GHz, 8GB DDR3, 1TB HDD Desktop PC- $675.00 - $60.00 coupon code 7CGSBDFTF3TNBR = $614.99+ FS at Dell Home.

  • Intel Core i7 4770 3.4GHz
  • 8GB DDR3
  • 1TB 7200RPM HDD
  • 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 635
  • Dell Wireless 1703 802.11a/b/g/n
  • 16X CD/DVD Burner
  • Windows 8.1




I thought I'd price this out on individual components, for those who are more technically inclined:
- CPU: $295 AC on NewEgg
- RAM: Cheapest comparable is $65
- HDD: Cheapest 1TB 7200 RPM drive is $60
- Graphics: Gigabyte GT-630 w/ 2GB VRAM for $50-- don't see a 635 model -- but $80 will get you into a GT-640
- Mobo: $57 would get you a decent ASUS board w/ gigabit Ethernet(more or less comparable; didn't see Dell mobo specs)
- DVD: $20
- OS: Win 8.1 is $99 for OEM
- PSU: Corsair 80 Plus Bronze 430w for $25 AR
- Case: <didn't price>
- Wifi: <didn't price>

All that to say, you're hitting Dell's price point before adding in the OS, a case, and a wifi card. Unless you want specific parts or you already have a case, PSU, and/or OS and want to roll the cost of the graphics card into a better one, this is a solid deal. Plus, you get to take advantage of the Dell warranty process (instead of having to deal with multiple part vendors). And an XPS-badged machine should be more robust.

Agreed on pricing

The only downsides for gamers are:
- No SLI
- Poor ventilation

Also, you only get one year of warranty with this PC
Mos individual components will give you at least 3 years.

Also, if you have a MicroCenter nearby you can grab a i7 4770k and mobo for around $310
