The only thing that concerns me is the pictures provided aren't of the desktop that is described. I wonder what the actual desktop looks like.

So 2700 is only 5% faster in single core tasks?

How would this CPU perform in simracing? Simracing in VR?
15% 5% clock speed difference 10% ipc difference

How much of an upgrade is this to a 980M laptop? I can only find benchmarks for the 8GB 580 not this 4GB one.

The GPU will be noticeably better, but considering you have a solid machine still I would personally hold off on a "one step forward upgrade" and wait till you can find something noticeably better in all the specs

The GPU is about 20-40% better depending on what is running and which version of the 970m you have. It should be a noticeable upgrade, but you always need to factor in the rest of the system too.

Looking to upgrade my parents' 6 or 7 year old Dell desktop, but looking at cpubenchmark the 3rd gen i7 in their old computer is better than this one. They have a Dell xps 8500 from 2012 or 2013, would this be a dumb upgrade?

My mom wants to get my little brother a gaming PC around this price range (400-600), but they know very little and don't want to bother with building. I live out of state and am not really a PC gamer either, so Idk much. Would this be a good deal? I'm sure you could always upgrade if he wanted to, right? It isn't a rush, so if this isn't that great then I'll wait, but if this is decent then I'd like to notify my mom about this.
its a good deal for what it is, in term of longevity of the parts the processor may bottleneck an upgraded graphics card in years to come. but for now he'll be able to run most games on high or med settings at 60FPS 1080, which is great. i'd add 8gb of ram and get an ssd and make it the boot.

Ram 1st, then SSD once it really starts to slow down. then in years from now he'll prob want to upgrade and he'll prob need to get a new motherboard, PSU, processor and GPU essentially build a new one lol of course idk about the motherboard or the case but deff the processor and GPU, but it would be a rare find to get something half good for $400

This is a pretty solid entry gaming build.

The parts you probably want to upgrade in order:
1. Soon: Replace HDD with SSD
2. In a Year: Upgrade to Ryzen 5 2600 or something with similar gaming performance for cheap
3. Within a couple years: Upgrade to 16GB of Ram
4. In 2-3 years: Replace the GPU with an RX 780?

There's a reasonable argument to be made for replacing the power supply.
Why would they necessarily have to upgrade CPU and GPU so soon? RAM amount maybe, no reason not to add more, but still prob not totally required. Depending on the framerate he wants to run, I don't see a reason to upgrade so quickly, especially the CPU because a 2600 isn't so much better gaming performance than this chip, particularly in single-core performance.

Specifically the Ryzen 5 2600 because it's got the cores and threads to handle the multi-threaded direction PC gaming is going in 2-5 years (consider all the Battlefield games, for starters). The Ryzen 3 1300X will immediately bottleneck this system in some games, more in a year. And the Ryzen 5 2600 will be dirt cheap in a year, especially now that they 3000 series will be trouncing it. The 2600 for the maybe $75 it'll cost then will make a lot more sense, especially since it'll actually pack enough CPU power to carry most users through 2023, at least.

I said to replace the GPU in like 2-3 years. Plenty of people replace their entire PC in 3 years. But with a bit more RAM, a stronger CPU, and a new midrange GPU in 2022, this will go strong for 3 more years after that.

Or you could just stick with this and ZERO upgrades through 2023, then buy a totally new one for $499 that beats what I'm describing. That might be better...
