Easy to say if you're 20 and living with your parents. Not so easy if you're 45 with a family, a full-time job, and a mortgage.

I've built computers before, but don't have time like I used to. The slightly slow RAM notwithstanding, this is a pretty decent deal.
No, no you really cant.... That RTX2080 Super along with the CPU alone $710 + $380 = $1090 BEFORE TAX, then you add a case $100, PSU $60, AIO cooling $120, RAM $75, OS $50. Your grand total to build this unit not counting maybe a sound card or optical drive comes out to be $1525 so pretty damn close with the only splurg being the AIO cooler. Everything else including the GFX I picked almost the cheapest I could find. Also forgot Mobo so add another $80.

So your not really saving anything and for you to save a good amount you would have to do part collecting over a period of a few months. So while this deal is not smoking it definitely saves you a lot of time and comes with a one stop shop warranty instead of individual pieces from multiple manufactures.

I am also currently looking around for a new desktop or considering building one, but have not made up my mind. My current is a prebuilt MSI Aegis and I do love it, but its about 3 years old now and with me wanting to do some high end VR I think I want to move along to the RTX cards instead of my current 1080 GTX card. Right now AMD is my front runner if I build one cause I can future proof with a PCIE4 Mobo and be set for another 3-5 years. Intel has not yet incorporated that specification into their designs.
Haha, I was about to say the same thing. Sometimes you just wanna buy it without the work. Quite frankly I am tired of the 'build it yourself' comments

Highest cash back rate to dell today is only 4%. Just a general FYI for those considering a purchase.

I wish they had 14% percent cash back and dell rewards would make this tempting that and a fact of 1 year free financing if you use Dell Account. Hopefully will drop more once the 10th gen systems roll out.

I bought this version that came with an additional 1Tb HD for about the same price and got the dell rewards. But, you gotta wait til Dell Gamer Days, usually around the holiday in early September. Since buying it, I've not seen a better price for that package. BTW. Love the machine! That 2080 Super is niceSmilie. Oh, lastly, I also got an additional 5% discount for using dell financing. That was same as cash for 12 months.

Someone help me. Which wifi card should I get?
Qualcomm DW1810 1x1 802.11ac Wi-Fi Wireless + Bluetooth 4.2 or
Killer™ Wi-Fi 6 AX1650 (2x2) 802.11ax Wireless and Bluetooth 5.1

I've read in the past that Killer is unreliable. I know little about computer specs. Will need something to run premiere pro / da vinci resolve

Thanks.

An option is to just get the cheap version, then buy an intel Wifi-6 card off Amazon [amazon.com] for $20, upgrade yourself and avoid the rubbish Killer chip.
