You can all try the coupon code '50OFF699' for potentially an additional $50 saving, but I'm uncertain if it will work with this door buster promotion. Worth a try. It's a great deal either way.

From what I found out the Mobo is proprietary by Dell and looks like very hard to upgrade ...

Kinda. If you only plan to game at 1080p it's perfectly fine. Should get you 60fps on almost any game at max or near max settings.

Though technically the 3gb version of the 1060 is the lower one, with the 6gb being preferable.

I use this card in my gaming system (i3) and it plays everything great. As long as you arent looking to do 4K gaming, this will do the job. My son has the 6GB version with an i5, and I have yet to see any performance differences between the 2. We both game at 1080p.

I really dont understand why these types of systems dont come with an SSD drive. Even a 240gb SSD for the OS and a couple of games can be had for about $50 and would add a huge performance increase in a system like this.

Pretty common for all major manufacturers to use proprietary boards. Especially in budget systems like this. Not sure what would be so hard to upgrade. Memory and Hard Drive would be about all you would ever need to upgrade. Still a great deal.

Can this support 6 hard drives?
How many memory slots does it have? Can memory be added?

I'm not sure but I don't think it will support 6 hard drives, as is anyway.

Please see the item description for the number of ports and memory slots, it has several.

The ram is upgradeable to 32GB Max.

Are there games on the horizon (other than VR) that this system won't be able to handle? I'm considering buying this so my son can play PUBG instead of on the Xbox One S, but with the next gen of cards coming out, I can't decide if it's the right time to buy (price) or wrong time to buy (specs).

Side note, love to see it when you can buy the system for less than what the components cost (retail):
1060 3GB - $230
i5 8400 $179
RAM - $80
MB - $90
Power Supply - $40
=$620 and I'm assuming you reuse an existing case and possibly HD/SSD.

Also at least 40 to $50 for an oem copy of Windows 10 from a reputable source.. another $20 for the standard Dell mouse and keyboard
