Deal Details

Last Edited by cricket702 September 6, 2016 at 05:28 PM
Computer.Woot has Dell Optiplex 7040 Mini Tower Desktop PC with Core i7-6700 3.4GHz Quad Core CPU, 8GB DDR4 Ram, 500GB HDD, AMD R5-340X 2GB GDDR5, DVD-RW, 240W Standard 92%+ Platinum PSU, Win10 Pro 64 Bit @ $529.99 + $5 Shipping. This comes with Dell 3 year Onsite Warranty.

This can be a building block of a gaming Computer. The motherboard has lots of port and support full sized Graphics cards, the PSu is standard ATX form factor and hence can be upgraded very easily to accommodate high end Graphics cards. It has 2x PCIe X16 Slots (2nd one @ X4 speed), M.2 Slots for both Sata and PCIe SSD, PCIe X1 Slot for network cards.
You can get a 500W 80+ Bronze PSU below $30 and add an powerful Graphics card to make it a budget gaming rig. Also 3 years of warranty actually matches the warranty normally you get for each of the parts bought separately but at far less price.

This is pretty tempting. Need to do some more digging to see if this will work for me. Have an existing PSU that I could drop in. Throw in a GTX 950 for $100 and it's a pretty decent 1080p gaming rig.

I haven't had one come back broken at work so I'm not 100% on this but I'm fairly certain the case won't support a standard power supply and the motherboard also does not have a 24 pin. If I remember correctly these are either 8 or 10 pin. Dell has been a real bitch about proprietary connectors lately

Not a bad call if you already have a case/psu

Be warned, this does NOT have a standard PSU. The case is about 1/3 inch too narrow to fit a standard ATX PSU. Also the motherboard is NOT designed to fit into another case easily. So unless you want to do some modding to the existing case (or are willing to feed the power cables in through the back with a regular ATX power supply mounted outside the case) you are stuck with the PSU it comes with. Additionally, the motherboard uses a non-standard power connector, so you will need an adapter (though they are relatively cheap on eBay) if you use a different power supply

But you can run something like the Asus GTX 950 Mini which only uses power from the motherboard. I have this exact model desktop and have stress tested an Asus GTX 950 Mini and it handled just fine so far. Maxing out the CPU and the GPU at the same time uses 140-150 watts total according to my Kill-a-watt power tester. So while I wouldn't recommend running it like that non-stop for hours on end every day, it should be able to survive just fine.

Dell's own configurations allow for a GPU that is rated at 55 watts, so a 75 watt GTX 950 shouldn't kill it


Also this price, while not bad, is not amazing. If you are willing to wait a couple weeks, a better deal on dell.com/outlet will probably show up

edit: Actually you can find it on dell.com/outlet for cheaper right now. There is a 40% off coupon bw40Op7000, and I see a 7040 mini tower model for $819 before coupon, $491.40 after coupon. Same specs except 1TB hard drive

Another configuration at the dell outlet right now, 500GB HDD, 16GB RAM, GTX745 4GB $849 pre coupon, $509.40 after coupon

Bro, why you have to do guesswork to prove it is a bad deal. Just google Dell OptiPlex 7040 Mini Tower and you will get your answer that whether it supports a standard ATX PSU or not.
Anyway, for lazy people like you, I did the digging and found out the details and that's why in the configuration I've explicitly mentioned that it supports standard PSU.

You are talking about the Optiplex 7040 SFF and this one is 7040 Mini Tower. It supports standards PSU. I appreciate you are trying help but your research is not correct.

Here is the Product specification page from Dell. Check the Power section and you will find out the details. Both model supports standard PSU

Minitower (MT)
Standard 240W PSU
Active PFC
240W typical 85% Efficient PSU (80 PLUS Bronze) ENERGY STAR complaint, Active PFC
240W typical 92% Efficient PSU (80 PLUS Platinum); ENERGY STAR complaint, Active PFC

Small Form Factor (SFF)
Standard 180W PSU
Active PFC
180W typical 85% Efficient PSU (80 PLUS Bronze) ENERGY STAR complaint, Active PFC
180W typical 92% Efficient PSU (80 PLUS Platinum); ENERGY STAR complaint, Active PFC

Then propose something with the same spec/performance/functionality at a better price point (and don't forget the OS and 3 year warranty).... Not so easy is it. Confused

For what it is worth, my refurbed Dell Optiplex 9020 SFF is nicest desktop I have come across for a non-gaming system. Solidly built, great 3-year warranty and a nice compact form factor with everything I need.

Here is the link from Jonny Guru Forum where one posted that he has upgraded the PSU to Cooler Master Extreme 600W PSU. So stop posting wrong information here.

But this is refurbished though? They don't rebuild the whole pc from scratch, they replace the problems parts. Meaning a majority of this machine is used. I mean it's good it has a 3 year warranty but it's still basically used.

Only the connector is different, specific to Dell Motherboard, not the form factor and you can use a converter to fit a normal size PSU. Something like this:
