Same price and configuration as the December's FP deal but with Windows 7 Home Premium instead. This version of Windows includes Windows Media Center (WMC) and is great for those who want to use this PC with a cable tuner and/or as an HTPC.

In case anyone is wondering, this deal is dead on all tries, confirmed 2/6, probably way late.

What is the best GPU that can be used in this system without swapping the PSU?

GTX 970 would be a good choice

A Few question before I pull the plug on this deal guys - been out of the pc game for a while, so i'm not up to date with the latest CPUs and GPUs etc...

How are the specs? better than putting together a rig myself, value wise? Will be using this machine for light video editing and multitasking/media.

Is this slient? If i sleep next to it, will I hear the fans etc? My current rig is louder than a woodchipper!

What could be upgraded in the future ? Does dell still use proprietary motherboards and power supplies?

Most PC like this are over rated on their PSU. And most of them won't able to fully support high end GPU like 970. Get a dedicated PSU if you want high end GPU.

For this spec I probably go with R9 270 or GTX 760. However you have to realize that these kind of case is not air efficient and will burn out your GPU sooner than expected.

Its a 460 watt power supply. While I am not saying it is the best quality a lot of shitty power supplies in today's market still meet some sort of standard for quality as well as the power requirements for a lot of high end market parts are trending downwards. I wouldn't hesitate to put a 970 in this PC.

I have a similar system and it is fairly quiet. The closest I can compare it to is a humidifier. Mine has an NVIDIA GeForce GT635

All you need is more memory and GPU...unless you want it to fly, stick with those two upgrades and you'll be OK

I'd think the GTX 970 is a bit of a push - most of these spec a 500W power supply minimum, and I'd rather be conservative in this area. I'm using a 750ti with the stock PS, will probably upgrade it if I ever go for the 970 or 980.
