500GB SATA not SSD

+Came with basic keyboard and mouse for $112

$100 for a PC is a damn good deal. 500GB SSD is under $100 for brand name and adding more ram is another $50 or whatever to make it similar deal.

This + a GTX 1660 (or similar) and you have yourself a gaming computer (assuming you have enough PSU). Good deal for a starter PC.

Overall it's an alright deal...

Most refurbs are much cheaper for slightly lesser specs, you could get one with the same CPU for around $120-$160ish if you know where to look (albeit with half the RAM and an HDD). This listing includes 16GB of RAM but RAM is not expensive these days and you could get additional stick(s) for cheaper. It doesn't specify what the layout is so it could be 4x4 instead of 2x8 which wouldn't be as optimal. The listing does come with a 1 year warranty. Although it does come with an SSD, you can get a generic one the same size for about $60 (and you could just get a smaller SSD as a boot drive for ($25-$40ish for half the size). Also, it doesn't mention if it still has the OEM PSU (which is just powerful enough to support the current components) or not which means you don't know if you're going to be able to use a dedicated video card right away. PSUs are rather pricey right now.

Most buyers who are looking to use refurbs will not be looking for this. If you're an everyday person who is looking to replace their ancient desktop/laptop, this would be okay due to the 1 year support. Otherwise... it's eh.

Decent deal for low level desktop for personal use. This does indeed get a lot cheaper on holidays sales and eBay is currently cheaper from refurbished vendors but that's a pretty big risk with 90 day warranties that might not even go through with such vendors. Thumbs up for those that could use this basic level desktop set up.

Decent value. Especially with that 500gb SSD drive. But a word to the wise. Check with your local community college or University. I picked up 8 Dell machines of a similar spec for $50 a piece minus the SSD. They had some garbage Seagate 500 HDD which I quickly swapped out for 250gb SSD no dram drives around $35 a piece. The school machines also came with keyboard, mouse, display port to HDMI converters. Add $110 for a 60hz 27in display an I added 8 more capable business machines to our construction outfit for under $200 a setup. Seriously, make the call to your local schools. They, upgrade there stuff like every 3-5 years an leave perfectly serviceable, everyday use machines on the table for pennies on the dollar.

The 7020 series should have 4th generation Intel processors, like the i5-4590 in mini towers. Maybe you get one in these instead of the the 3470.

This is actually not a bad deal, unlike most Dell refurb deals. Extra RAM plus a good sized SSD are what make the deal. Plus you won't get a 1 year warranty with most eBay refurbs.

But something is off. A 7020 should have a Haswell CPU, not an Ivy Bridge CPU. Either this is actually a 7010, or the CPU model in the listing is incorrect.

I have a OptiPlex 9020 with a 290 watt 80+gold dell PSU
With i7-4770
Are there any GPUs worth putting in?
or do I have to get a new PSU and adapters for the proprietary MB

I finally set up deal alerts on my phone for computers. Do any good deals ever pop up for more powerful editing machines?
