Not bad, especially if they don't collect sales tax from you.

Pretty good deal. The configuration is very good for the price and NVMe SSD at this price is really rare.

I would be surprised if drive was NVME.

I got a similar deal without the SSD last month off dell outlet. I believe this one will also have a reference RX480...mine stalled out at 1350/2100. Might try again after I replace the PSU.

The RX480 has a 6 pin rather than 8 pin.

I think these are Costco returns. Bought the same configuration this summer at Costco for 1100.

That's a pretty shitty power supply that will most likely need to be replaced

This appears to be the 'original' version from Amazon: link [amazon.com]

Reviews are decent and the ebay seller even answers a few questions about it. Seems like a pretty good deal, esp without tax! I'm very tempted.

I just got this exact same setup last week from Dell Outlet for exact same price since I had to pay tax. It's a great machine, runs quiet. I stacked 25% coupon with $100 Amex deal.

Replacing a graphics card is really pretty simple. Shouldn't take more than a few minutes. However, you need to be sure the power supply can handle the particular replacement and that there's ample room in the machine for the new card you want to use.

Here's a sum of what I think the components are worth:

I5 7700 $250
24gb RAM $160
256GB SSD $70
1TB HDD $40
RX 480 8GB $225
case $15 (worth less because it's proprietary)
motherboard $15 (worth less because it's proprietary)
power supply $15 (it's a crappy power supply)
bt/wifi card $25
card reader $25
Windows 10 $20 (seriously you can find a key for $20 on ebay or use some other method)
TOTAL $860

Is this system worth it? Yes, if you want a middle-high end configuration do not want to build yourself (honestly, dealing with all the research and rebates is enough of a turn-off for many people). HOWEVER, all the components are the lowest minimum quality to support this build. Consider:
  • The motherboard is proprietary and if it breaks (like the one in my old dell did) the replacement will be expensive
  • The case may not be compatible with other motherboards (because Dell and other manufacturers like to keep things proprietary)
  • The RX 480 has a 6-pin instead of 8-pin power connector (AMD built a design flaw into the reference RX 480) and thus pulls an out-of-spec amount of power from that rail. It could possibly cause your powersupply to break or go haywire.
  • The power supply is on the low end and will barely support that system configuration. Also, my last XPS had a power supply with only 6-pin connectors, which made it impossible to install modern graphics cards that use the 8 pin connector. If you upgrade the graphics card in the future, you will likely need to purchase a new power supply
  • It is refurbished
  • My last Dell XPS 8900 came with only one case fan installed, which did not inspire confidence at all.

So depends on what you want. Myself, I am telling you this because I bought an XPS 8900 and had the motherboard fry. I found out I had two options:
  • buy a new motherboard off eBay for like $160 (way overpriced)
  • rebuild the system with a new motherboard and case

Guess which one was cheaper - rebuilding the entire system. I also took the liberty of replacing the cheap power supply so I could install a new graphics card, and also replaced the CPU heatsink. All in all, buying the proprietary Dell cost me more in the long run than building my own.

If you are the type to never want to tinker with your computer, upgrade, or replace stuff, go ahead and buy this, it's a good decent deal and very convenient. But if you are planning to replace/add graphics cards in the future, build your own.

This PSU was $12 after rebate a short while ago.
