FYI - Dell will likely not supply Bios updates to allow use of new Ryzen's. https://www.dell.com/community/In...294/page/3

I wish mods would delete comments like this. Yes of course building a PC yourself is cheaper. That's true for many products. It also ignores the cost of the person's time and the risk of something gets screwed up. I built a PC a few times myself and between shopping, waiting for parts to arrive, assembly, and OS setup, it actually took a while. It simply isn't a helpful comment.

A helpful comment would compare this to other comparable pre build PCs.

More like $160 for the graphics card and $180 for the CPU. And a $50 motherboard is not going to include dual band 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, 6x USB 3 ports, 4x USB 2 ports, and Gigabit Ethernet. And do you want a computer with a sketchy Windows license? Once you add up all of that, this theoretical build is going to be more expensive than the Dell to get a comparable computer.

I also have the previous gen model with 1700 and mine has an issue with the fan suddenly ramping up like a jet engine for a 5-15 seconds then goes back to normal.

The one design issue I dislike about this model (and probably the 5576 since it uses the same chassis) is that the power supply is mounted in the bottom of the chassis, and it is upside down, meaning the intake fan in the P/S is facing DOWN and is against the bottom of the chassis with only about 1/4" gap of airspace. My P/S is always very hot to touch.

I have the year older model with the 1700+ processor and most items are similar.

Got mine in a Costco confit with a SSD which is probably the only thing you would want to add to this configuration.

Toss in a NVME drive ($75ish) and this is a decent PC.

Have you looked inside? I wonder how expandable it is since the graphics card is pretty decent. Is the PSU regular sized ATX or custom? How is the cooling?

For the price, this is very tempting. The only downside really is the HDD but I can live with that.

Edit: Also, according to a user in Amazon, this has an X370 motherboard. Is this true?

Many power supplies in modern pc cases face down because they have their own intake (and filter in some cases) below the PC. If the case isn't providing ample space for the power supply to pull in air, then yes I would flip the power supply over.

Due to plastic molding and cutouts on the back of the chassis where the AC plug is, it is not possible to flip the P/S. As far as I can tell, there is no intake venting on the bottom of the chassis.

It seems opposite of what it should be. Like systems with the PS at the top, the intake fan faces DOWN and INTO the computer, not jammed against the top of the case.

This looks like a pretty decent deal to me. Lowest price, according to CCC.

I'm out of the loop on computers, but my old Thinkpad is getting sluggish. I've been looking at benchmarks and can't figure out which is better for workstation use - tons of chrome tabs, Firefox, etc. Occasional lightroom and photoshop. No gaming, but I need a video card for multiple monitors. Is the higher performance of single and dual core tasks of the Intel i5-8400/9400 better, or the more cores of the amd ryzen series?

I'm comparing this computer to the clearance HP at office depot mainly, in terms of value. I'd have to buy 16gb ram, so add $65ish to the price, about $515 total.

Any thoughts?

Yeah it really is. For the same specs if you built it yourself it would be 100ish more. I would just buy a SSD to use as your boot drive and it would be perfect.

Great CPU, all else is mediocre. Good as a workstation. OK for MMOs. The power supply unit will need to be upgraded for superior video cards. The hard drive should be replaced with a solid state drive or accompanied by a solid state drive for optimal loading speeds in windows and games.

Personally, the first upgrade I would make is the PSU. I would also replace the CPU cooler. I personally own this model of CPU and it can be power hungry and run hot quickly. I use Noctua DH-15 CPU cooler (which might not fit in Dell case) and the Ryzen 7 2700 never goes above 40c.
Very well explained. Rings true in my ears.
