False because you don't know any person's frame rate preference. Some people are okay with a 30fps experience.

It's not good enough for the pros out there, but this is a dirt cheap option to start having some fun.

Decent gaming setup for mid - high in most games at 1080p

"Height: 14.17" (360mm) x Width: 6.89" (175mm) x Depth: 13.58" (435mm)"

That's relatively small, especially compared to a mid-tower. An XPS is more than an inch larger in every dimension, as is an Inspiron.

While it does share the same GPU as an Xbox one, a GPU that cost $70 3 years ago, this system will perform worse than an Xbox One due to overhead processing.

Not a good value for gaming my TS140 with an i5 equivalent and a GTX 960 cost about this price.

$400+Tax is about $430-70 rebate it is $360, you can get a much higher performing system for $360 from a $200 i3 desktop after adding a better graphics card.

All in all this system is not fit for gaming, A 2 generation old i3 is at least 30% faster in games. A 45W CPU with Iris Pro Graphics 580 is just as powerful.

Can you link the $200 desktop you're talking about? I need a new one for my MAME.

This is a very appealing deal. It's a great value overall, due to the plentiful RAM, hard drive, the Pro flavor of Windows and the discrete graphics card. These are the features that are expected from a $600-$700 i7 desktop and, typically, aren't even available on $400-$500 i5 configurations.

The CPU is the weakest link (perhaps 10-20% slower than an i3) but still sufficient for most tasks. Think of it as sacrificing the processing power to get the graphics performance.

The budget minded non-gamers may consider putting the integrated graphics to full use by selling the R7 360 discrete graphics card on eBay or craigslist to bring the final cost down into the $270 range. The gamers should benefit from disabling the integrated GPU and the dual graphics functionality. The discrete GPU alone will very likely perform better on its own.

I was thinking of pairing my old 6950 and ssd with an i5 4590 and can probably put together a pc for a similar price. Would this Dell be a better option for gaming?

Kinda funny that the older lenovo Erazer series had this exact setup and they called it a gaming PC, so much so that it had its own Erazer branding. For the money, this is not a bad setup... but keep in mind that people spend more than double this on just a graphics card for their gaming setups. This whole pc costs about as much as a GTX 980 and about 1/2 as much as a 980ti. From that standpoint, you really do get a lot for your money here.
