That's really only true if you're trying to go super low budget or high-end. You won't be able to compete with pre-built prices on anything mid-range. They build in crazy high volumes that give them a lot of leeway on price.

Or for the simplest upgrade, get a 1050Ti and an SSD and you are good to go for 95% of most users gaming needs at 1080P.

Hmm, chatted with Dell to see if they could price match, but they said no due to different processor. I thought that was weird, but then found that I was looking at the AU site instead of the US one. Apparently Dell has released Kaby Lake desktops in every country except the US, where they're still selling the Skylake ones. I wonder what that's about.

It has a 300W Psu so I don't think so no. I could be wrong though.

Edit: This was with the 480 mind you. There might be other solutions such as a 460 or any of those smaller ones.

This depends on a few factors:

1) Is there space? Sometimes these pre-build comps are pretty sparse on space, which makes upgrading a problem.

2) If you're comfortable buying and installing a slightly better Powersupply. You could likely find one new w/rebate for sub 50 bucks.

With this amount of effort, however, you may be able to find a deal that includes this for around the same price you'd pay for all of it together.

Yes you can add a 480 and a $20AR 450w PSU and be golden.

I believe there are only two sata ports on the motherboard. If you plan on adding a SSD, you will either have to replace an included device, or get an M.2

Sorry for not being technical enough, but what is a 1050ti and M.2? And would these be possible to add with a 300w power supply? I've been wanting to get a desktop with ssd for a while, but they always seem either too expensive or don't have built in DVD due to the ssd taking up the other slot.

If you're talking about cpubenchmark.com, that score should only be used as a reference to compare 2 CPU's that are using all their cores at once. It's not really an accurate representation of real world single threaded performance. And most applications (even games) aren't going to utilize all your cores at once.

I'm an AMD fan btw (currently running a FX-6300)... but unfortunately, the Intel CPU in this desktop is faster in most real world scenarios...
http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Comp...3890vs1489

...and keep in mind, that's also with only 4 cores vs 8 on the AMD. Hopefully though, these new Ryzen chips will put AMD back in the game. I've learned not to get my hopes up too much when AMD is hyping something. I usually give it 6-12 months to give it some "break-in" time, and then start reading the reviews.
