The card is bad, yes, but you're overpaying a lot for having it instead of an integrated GPU, extra RAM and the 2 TB HDD... what's the target user that wants16 gigs of RAM but doesn't want to put their OS on an SSD? What "basic use" is it for? Video editing and resource-intensive art programs (modeling, Photoshop, etc.)? There are hardware combos that make a lot more sense.

I see. Thanks for taking the time. I was researching it for another family member for very basic use - surfing net, word processing, office programs. Nothing graphics nor resource intensive. For reference, it was for a person interested in this one.

No problem! Sorry if I sounded dismissive at all. It's a decent machine, and certainly a mid-low tier graphics card leaves the *option* for some gaming on the side, if that's something they would have interest in (maybe some family or friends are visiting and the kids want to play Fortnite, or something similar). I really recommend a Solid State Drive for the operating system, if it's feasible. It makes your PC feel much more responsive, with extremely quick boot-up and shut-down times. A configuration like this [dell.com] has the option of the 128 gb SSD + a large hard drive for storage, which is really nice to have. It's a decent price too with their sale going on, but you could probably find something even better if you're willing or able to wait.

$300 CPU, $50 GPU, $150 RAM, $20 PSU, $60 HD, $60 motherboard = $640 plus the cost of the case, DVD drive and mouse and keyboard.

I wouldn't really say those things are worth considerably more than $75, which is what it would take for this to be a good deal over building a PC yourself. It's a fair price if you happen to need a PC with a high end CPU but don't need a good GPU.. but there have been other deals lately that are better values for the money.

No worries, I usually recommend rigs/laptops based on what the person is going to use it for. I did research before I recommended in case they wanted to upgrade to SSD later and It seems that is not an issue. Most likely this is gonna be more than enough for them. They are more console gamers. I also recommended based on Wndows 10 Pro since Win 10 no longer has remote access and one of the family members may get a job that would require that in the future as that person works from home.That and the peace of mind plus 4 year warranty via Costco seemed like a good idea. All the thumbs downs was making me doubt my recommendation. Recently got a Dell laptop with 4k display for my mom with 512 GB SSD - but she is gonna need the config I chose for her... Need to find her a decent 4k monitor now because I hooked up my HD monitor to extend her laptop display and it looks bad, didn't have time to play with graphics, maybe a scaling issue.

Good find. Perfect for people like me who are looking for a W10 Pro PC with a fast CPU, decent memory and HD config. 256GB SSD would be nice, but no SSD is better than paying for 128GB SSD that I would have to replace anyway.

Thanks for sharing the info. So the link you provided should be sufficient for the basics (internet browsing, YouTube videos, excel word)? I rarely do gaming

i think this is a good deal for offices. i bought 2 and a couple of SSD's to upgrade. having windows 10 pro is worth an extra $100 so that needs to factor in for businesses that need it.

How good would this machine be for Video and Photo editing with Dell 30 inch monitor (2560 x 1600 Res)?

Since it comes with GeForce® GT 1030 Graphics, is it easy to replace it with GTX 1060 or 1070 in the future?

Is SSD really needed for gaming OR it just makes rebooting your computer faster?

Thank you for your time!
