The problem with Dell is they might have a bunch of proprietary parts, such as mainboard and power supply, which makes repairing and replacing parts much harder. Better to pick all your parts and put it together yourself.

Why is this deal so bad?
It's not a bad deal, it's just not particularly slick. As the GPU market fluctuates, we are seeing a mix of hot deals and deals that would have been hot a few months ago because there was no other way to get a GPU. In this case, it's not a bad deal, particularly if you are the type of person who will never want to crack the case and upgrade things later on and you want something now. The processer and GPU are both in a reasonable "bang for the buck" range for new hardware and the memory (both RAM and bulk storage) is more than enough for most users. IMO, this is a better deal than the ABS machine with the equivalent CPU/GPU at Newegg which provides an upgrade path, but starts with less memory and less storage for the same price.

This is a perfectly respectable machine to edit that 4k vacation video on, and will play games well enough to be the envy of all the other 40-something dads on the block -- but it will be scoffed at by the video professionals and the tech bros who snapped up 3090 based machines months ago.
