Dell offers a 500 watt PSU upgrade
07-19-2021 at 01:52 PM
Dell uses a proprietary thin PSU, I dont believe aftermarket ones come in that size and shape.

this computer will still operate without a video card. Intel Non-F CPUs have an integrated GPU.

Would it void the warranty? It shouldn't, under existing right to repair laws.

This Dell system would be a great fit, for home, office, students, coders, CAD, miners, video editors, graphic designers, and even casual gamers. Pretty much everyone except hardcore PC gamer enthusiast that like to build and maintain their own high-end $2000+ systems.

We have 3 of the G5 systems reviewed in that Gamers Nexus video. Ours have GTX1660 graphics cards, 10400F, 500w PS, 16GB ram, and a clean install of Windows 10. All are performing very well and we have not seen any heat or performance issues. My kids play the newest games on them daily (Doom Eternal, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, Madden, HOI4, ect.) While simultaneously having YouTube open, a couple web pages, and messenger programs. I feel as though the build quality was quite good for the price I paid. I could not be more satisfied with our purchase.

If you are just an normal person (like 98% of the population) that wants to get a good deal on a good PC that will probably never be opened, and the only real maintenance you do is reinstall Windows ever couple of years to clean the system up. Then this system is perfect for you, and will serve you well for many years to come.
Lucky you.. *crying in California *
If you have a better deal on a pre-built system with similar or better specs available right now then post it.

I wouldn't count on it. Gpu prices are going down rapidly on eBay. With China banning mining, there will be an influx of gpus hitting the second hand market shortly.

Nope. This card is still going for upwards of $650, so it would sell in an hour at $500.

Don't forget e b a y takes 13% of what you sell it for. And GPU prices are falling by the day, so by the time it ships you can expect atleast $50 lower selling prices there.

Right now it is. You won't get this for another month, and then the prices will be lower.
