No. The motherboard is Dell. There is no standard Molex from power supply. You can add a video card that doesn't need a power connector.

For the price it's an ok system. I purchased a similar model (Inspirion 3720) from Costco for $550. Costco model had gtx 1030, 2tb hd and 16gb ram but no optane.

The mechanical hD IS slow. I added ssd. With ssd it runs great. It's quiet and responsive for typical office tasks.

There's limited upgrade potential. It's a small case and a proprietary Dell motherboard. There is no extra Molex. Sata power plugs directly into motherboard. If you add ssd you will need to plug into the single m2 or add 2.5 ssd. If you go 2.5 ssd, you will need either a dell sata power cable or you can split existing sata power with RIGHT ANGLE connector.

The wireless on mine was abgn not a.c.. So there is no 5ghz. There is wired gigabit or 2.4 wireless. It looks like this one may have a.c.. So it should get 5 ghz.

Overall, for less than $600. It's not bad. It's quiet. (Quietest sytem I ever had). No problems running spss, xcel, access and other office programs.

Shouldn't be listed as 24GB... Should be 8GB memory with 16GB Optane.
