Looking for a new PC >$500

inkrap 72 136 July 30, 2016 at 01:59 PM
I've been using a laptop I scored off SD for about 5 years now, and this week it finally threw in the towel so I'm looking for a new PC. Checked the FP, but didn't see anything that stood out.

I'm no longer interested in a laptop, and I already have a monitor so I just need the tower.

Looking to spend around $500. Usage is mainly lightweight, but I'd like to start dabbling with gaming since so far I've been limited to console (would love to be able to stream my X1 console games while the wife uses the living room!)

Any recommendations?

Dell Outlet...6th gen i7 based XPS 8900 when they have a 30-35% coupon in play. Should be able to get a very good box for around $500. Upgrade the graphics board if you want higher end gaming (and maybe the power supply depending on how high end you want to go).

Thanks for the advice, ended up snagging one with a 35% off code.
