Seems pretty good to me, I have no idea how they're getting away with a 460W psu though.

Because that is enough juice for this PC. Now a days, powerful hardware does not mean higher power consumption. For example, the i7-8700 has a TDP of 65W and during load the power consumption never goes over 85W. Similarly, GTX 1080 has a max power consumption of 180W. Add another 100W, which is over estimation for the rest of the components, and you are still not going over 360W.
Moral of the story, this 460W PSU is perfectly capable for this system and that includes overclocking the Graphics card as well.

Does maxing out all USB ports (and adding multiple USB hubs) affect the PSU at all?

The link is not down but it has been changed by Dell. If you click on that, you will land on a XPS 8930 page with GTX 1050 Ti and no upgrade option. That's why Moderators made that Expired. I asked them to make it reactive with the new link posted here, but they asked me to create a new deal.

If I am looking to do some mining and could also use a pc upgrade, is this a great deal or should i hold out for another one in particular? If I just wanted the GTX 1080ti, given the supply shortage, what price could I hope to get one at and where? Or would shucking it from this be best bet and sell parts on eBay? Thanks!

Also Alienware have an upgrade option of $98 to a 850W PSU, otherwise you need to buy a 3rd-party one to install on the XPS tower.

I'm thinking about the Alienware R7.
