Okay, NOW you did it. I am returning it and getting this.

$399 for this monitor has made front page a time or two, so for those who are wondering, apparently it really is a $400+ monitor.

Oh and it has a 460w power supply vs. 300w on the 660 deal.

i don't know why everyone's litmus test for a good deal on computers is "can it game?" this is a good deal for what is, which is NOT a gaming pc.
Then again, if you are spending this much on a computer not meant for gaming, you're just wasting money. Multiple other alternatives. I didn't say it had to be a gaming PC, just throwing out a recommendation if you were looking to turn it into a gaming PC. Most of the time, if it can game, it can do just about everything else unless you're looking for a server.

Interested in your build, can you elaborate about the components?

For what its worth, there are VERY few people who agree that the 2410 is a $400 monitor. With $350 IPS koreans being superior in every respect, I see more 2410s and 2411s on craigslist than I can count.

pretty silly opinion, if you ask me. in order to bottle neck that cpu with gaming you would need a $360+ gpu setup alone. there are people who do heavy cpu work without the need of anything above a low end/integrated gpu.

I dont see how this is a good deal.... i want better video Card
I put a 2 GB HIS IceQ X Radeon HD 7850 (H785QN2G2M) in mine. Got it on Black Friday for $140 from newegg. The 460W Dell stock PSU can easily handle most 7850 models since it has 2 6-pin connectors whereas most of the 7850s require just one. If you like Nvidia, a popular choice for most XPS 8500 users is the GTX 660 TI.

Sarcasm aside,

At cheapest, let's add up some of the components:

CPU: $300
MOBO: Cheap, so maybe $50
GPU: Cheap, maybe $50
Ram: ~$100
HDD: ~$150
Monitor: ~$450
Windows: ~100

So far we are at $1,200.
The price is $1,000

Therefore it's not a bad deal if this is something along the lines of what someone is in the market for.

No way to edit it? Really could use a second optical drive. Also really don't want, or need, the monitor.
