memory is not M.2....but only $50 more for M.2 and additional 1TB hdd
What are you talking about. The chosen solution is: -
256GB PCIe x4 SSD + 1TB 7200RPM HDD

And that 256GB PCIe X4 SSD is M.2 2280 SSD. And SSD is not called memory by the way, that is another word for Ram.

Sorry I do mean the SSD. What is the difference between the 256GB PCIe x4 SSD and 256GB M.2 PCIe x4 SSD? Is all PCIe SSD M.2 NVMe because I thought some SSD has a M.2 form factor but a SATA III speed? Thanks for the help.

256GB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD is what you want... just go with it.

Deal photo makes it appear to come with an oculus rift. A little misleading.

I post this every time this deal comes up. Here it is again:

Folks, you do not want this computer. I bought the same config a few months ago, hoping it would perform as admirably as my XPS 8700 from a deal four or five years ago.

Nope.

The 8930 chassis is about 70% the size of the 8700 line, which puts the power supply on a swing out arm beside the motherboard, laterally over the processor heat sink and fan. When closed there's about half an inch of clearance in there, with the only source of airflow to the processor fan being a tiny vent on the back of the case.

At mostly-full load when gaming, both the CPU and GPU would hit 85°C very quickly.

The GPU is a generic blower-style GTX 1080, which means if there's any issues there will probably never be new firmware/VBIOS released. Blower-style is also pretty inferior to fans.

There's a large exhaust fan on top of the case that wheezes (spin up and back down constantly) with even slight variations in load. At full load this fan is very loud -- don't expect a quiet XPS like previous models.

There were just too many problems with this system, so I returned it and ended up building my own. For only slightly more money I ended up with a 1080 Ti and CPU/GPU temps that don't go above 42°C under load.

Do yourself a favor and skip this deal.

Lol gpu under 50 at load? You got nitrogen for cooling? BTW blower and custom cards don't make that big of difference. Don't mislead ppl with false comments.

GTX 1080 at 85 deg C during load is nominal. Look on google. I was concerned before as well, found out it was normal. Fan was never loud enough to bother me. BUT I don't think this is a good deal.

Almost same specs as the Alienware Aurora R7 I just got in yesterday from Dell for $1210.00. Missing DVD and the 1TB drive. Great deal though if you need a PC and missed out on that slickdeal from last week.

So.... Get a cheap case and move the components. You can usually get something serviceable for 30 bucks.

You absolutely did not build something like this for just a little more recently. the 1080 is going for around 1000 or more.

The blower has nothing to do with firmware so I think you should stop posting this on this deal and instead take that moment to go research what you're talking about further.
