      For those who do not necessarily want to build their own computer, or would be put off by the tedious workload, the Dell Inspiron 5675 is an exceptional choice that deserves recognition by those who are looking for a gaming PC. As such, often times the out of box experience is often negated by an additional upgrade or two but surprisingly that is not the case with the Dell 5675. It plays as it should and carries insane performance as it was intended to do as well in other extensive computational tasks. The computer itself has a fairly decent compact size. The construction felt pretty solid and it also has a manageable weight to it. and I did like the slit style chassis that showed off its blue LEDs inside (they can be turned off with the installed Dell Light Bar Software). As for the inside, there are plenty of upgradeable features that it has to offer such as two free 22x80mm M.2 slots, each labeled accordingly for SATA and PCIe (NVMe) configurations. In addition, there is one a 2.5'' slot for an SSD and a 3.5'' slot for a secondary mechanical drive. There is also one free DIMM slot for more memory. In addition, the motherboard has 3 extra SATA 6 Gb/s ports available and one more free PCIe electrical 16x slot. The motherboard is based off the X370 chipset was identified by CPU-Z as manufactured by Dell with a model number 07PR60. Lastly, the power supply is rated at 460 Watts and has 18A on the 12V rail. For my gaming tests, I compared it to my five year machine that I built myself that houses a GTX 670 2GB card and a i7-3770K CPU. I will be using that machine to compare performance data. In addition, I used several software monitors including 3D Mark, Fraps, GPU-Z, MSI Afterburner, and HW Monitor. For the tests, I wanted to focus on how it played directly out of the box so I did not update any drivers before my performance tests. In addition, I tested three of the more demanding titles I own: Rise of the Tomb Raider (2016 PC), Crysis 3 (2013) and lastly Doom (2016). I focused on the presets in each game and disabled both film grain and motion blur where applicable. Everything was ran in full high definition at 1920x1080 resolution. I also set fan speed to 75%. On Rise of the Tomb Raider, the opening scene on the mountain has to be one of the most intensive sequences of any game I own. Using the Very High Preset and expanding upon that by increasing shadow quality, sun soft shadows, reflection quality, and hair quality to max, the RX 580 was able to reach around 55-60 FPS. As the weather effects kicked in, I saw dips to low 50s and the further I progressed, it hit around high 40s, but it still felt smooth and was more than playable. As the mountain gave way, the lowest I saw was around 43 but it moved almost back to 60 once you were able climb the ice. On my GTX 670, I would start out at around 35 FPS and it would progressively get worst as the weather effects came in. I would start to dip to low 30s and once the mountain gave way it had dip to around 26 FPS. Aside from these, I also ran the in-game benchmark and my 670 posted an overall score of 36.63 FPS on regular high preset without the modifications mentioned above and on the RX 580 it posted 64.11 FPS overall. On Crysis 3, the opening sequence on the ship is quite intense with rain effects and high detail. On my test, I ran everything on very high settings and left anti-aliasing on FXAA. Once you acquire your first weapon, the frame rate jumps from 44 to almost 60 FPS. Usually when my character is stationary, I noted around 53-58 FPS. Moving down the platform it dropped to around 48, but once I started for the bridge, I saw areas of 53-64 FPS and it would alter greatly from depending on how I looked around. It is also a great improvement overall as in the same area the GTX 670 would struggle around 35 FPS and would bounce around in upper 40s with some places barely hitting 50. Crossing the bridge, it would hover around 45 FPS or lower. Once you are inside the ship, the RX 580 really stretched its legs and I would get mostly 60-70. Occasionally, there would be some random spikes down to the 50s or higher 40s, but overall the performance is night and day from before.Lastly, I tested the newest Doom and its performance nearly exploded on to my screen. I set everything to Ultra preset and set the anti-aliasing to TSSAA 8x as well as the 16x Anisotropic filtering. The frame rate usually averaged around 70-80 FPS. During the first big nest fight, I never saw the frame rate dip below 62 FPS. Connectively, on my 670 it ran with large 18-26 ms latency spikes and would hover between 38-60 FPS. On the RX 580, latency spikes never occurred. On the in-game metrics, both the CPU and RX 580 always held consistent green latency all less than 11 ms and never once showed any red latency data or lagged in game play. In addition to games, I wanted to test out the multithreaded capabilities of the Ryzen 1700 and wanted to compare it to my i7-3770K. Specifically, I wanted to test video encoding. For this test, I used Handbrake 1.0.7 and ran two tests. The first was a 90 minute HD video encoded using the HQ 1080p30 preset. The second test was ran with a 24 minute HD video and this time I ran it using the Super HQ 1080p preset. This time I altered the reference frames from 4 to 5. I left the frame rate and the audio equal to the source and I ran the results: Ryzen 1700: 1 hour and 38 Seconds (36.33 FPS) /i7- 3770K: 2 hours and 15 seconds (18.19 FPS) Ryzen 1700: 24 minutes and 57 seconds (22.05 FPS) /i7-3770K: 47 minutes and 58 seconds (11.46 FPS) As you can see the multithreaded performance obliterated my older CPU. The results were pretty staggering as I did not think it would cut the task in half on both tests. On a single threaded task, decided to encode a 24 minute WAV file to MP3 using Lame 3.99. I used MusicBee 2.4 and used a constant bit rate of 320 KBPS with the highest internal algorithm setting set at 0 (-q command). The results were ran twice: Ryzen 1700: 125 Seconds/123 Seconds /i7- 3770K: 126 Seconds/126 Seconds The last test I ran was the 3D Mark Firestrike benchmark using the basic version. My first results mentioned they were invalid due to an incorrect driver version. Still, to keep with the out of box experience I recorded the results and then I updated the drivers for validity. All games though were still tested with the stock drivers as mentioned previously. Here are the results: Default Driver 16.11.5 - Overall: 10,890/Graphics: 12,522/Physics: 16,804/Combined: 4,248 Current Driver 17.7.2 - Overall: 11,044/Graphics: 12,885/Physics: 16,535/Combined: 4,299 My Computer: Overall: 6,309/Graphics: 7,021/Physics: 9,954/Combined: 2733 Overall, there is mostly an improvement, aside from a slightly lowered physics score and combined score. However, comparing the FPS from the default drivers, there was a reduction of 0.85 FPS on the physics score and a 0.22 FPS difference for the combined. One last thing I noticed during my tests with the default drivers, I noticed the RX 580 would frequently spike its memory clock between 300 MHz and 2 GHz on idle. Even after restarting the computer, the card temperature would still quickly rise past 60 Celsius. Couple this with a low default fan settings (25% @ 850 RPM) , the card could not properly idle. After I updated the drivers to 17.7.2, the spiking of the GPU memory was fixed and it held consistently at 300 MHz on idle. Afterwards, I monitored the temps at 25% fan after a cold boot and noticed that the temperatures were back within range around 28-36 Celsius . I strongly recommend to monitor your temperatures to make sure everything is alright. Despite the minor issue, it is easily fixed. Aside from the performance, I do have some minor gripes with the system overall. The first is that the 16 GB RAM was not properly configured for dual channel (2x8 GB). It would have been beneficial had they included two 8 GB modules for proper bandwidth. The next problem I noticed was that the radeon software and GPU-Z both reported RX 580 was running only on PCIe 3.0 8x. It was strange since it should support 16x and the BIOS did not have a setting to change PCIe lanes. Nonetheless, the performance should remain unaffected as the scaling between 8x and 16x typically reflects little change if any at all on single GPU performance. Another problem I noticed was the BIOS is pretty basic. I would have loved to see an implemented GUI for the UEFI BIOS as you would normally see if you had built your own. I also noticed that there is only one headphone jack; a 3.5mm microphone port is mysteriously missing. Naturally, this might be an issue for some. I also would have liked to have a Blu-Ray burner drive instead of the slim DVD drive, though they are cheap enough as an upgrade. Lastly, I noticed that the hard drive activity light is missing from the front as well. Despite these minor issues, the Dell 5675 still performs exceptionally. In conclusion, I would highly recommend the Dell 5675 to anyone who needs a fast computer but does not want to build their own or lacks the expertise to do so. The gaming performance out of the box is stellar and ran everything smoothly with no issues. Furthermore, it destroyed my i7-3770K in both multithreaded and in single threaded tasks. AMD has a real winner on their hands. Ryzen is workhorse, regardless of the criticism it has received for its single threaded performance. It is ridiculously fast and is a capable gaming CPU. I do not see a problem with sacrificing some IPC/single threaded performance for such a huge multithreaded gain, especially since games are slowly utilizing more cores. The gaming benchmarks at 1080p were top notch and it handled everything smoothly. At its price, I would say it is quite worth it, provided that you are content with the issues I highlighted above. With all else said, the machine is ready to perform to your needs.

      I've built many PC's from scratch, the "modding" of cases etc.; well Dell has done one better, yet not gone too outlandish. The Dell 5675 is built beautifully, and it runs exceptionally quite and fast, but it can still be improved. The case is about 50% open, with several sets of blue LED's to illuminate the interior, shining through the the part of the exterior that is transparent. The LED's can be turned off via Dell's light bar utility, it you want to hide the beauty of the box. The box has 6 USB 3,0 ports (4 back 2 front) & 4 USB 2.0 ports (2 back 2 front) and one USB 3.1 port and SD card reader and headphone jack on the front. The Dell 5675 came with a single 16GB of 288-Pin DDR4 2400MHz (PC4-19200) UDIMM, which is a good thing as upgrading to 32GB only requires the addition of one more stick (had it had 2x8GB both would have to have been discarded to upgrade to max memory as the system only has 2 memory slots), but it's also a bad thing as system can't fully benefit from dual channel memory (which must be used in pairs to get the full speed out of it). It also has the AMD RX580 video card which supports 1 HDMI output and 4 display port output (no in theory you could drive 5 monitors) and the video card has 8GB of dedicated video memory (GDDR5), a very capable modern graphics adapter, about the equivalent of the GTX 1060, but with an extra 2GB memory. A great place to build from. Now for a minus and a plus, the Dell 5675 comes with a 1TB 7200 RPM HDD - obsolete by my standards - but the system does have 2 empty M.2 slots one has a PCIe (NVMe interface), the other a SATA interface. Plus there is space for one 2.5" SSD and a 3.5" drive bay open. So I guess Dell is figuring you can easily clone and upgrade from the HDD to a SSD when your ready, and obviously moving to the M.2 PCIe (NVMe) would provide the best performance (more on that option later). But the real power to this puppy (besides the 460W P/S) is the AMD Ryzen 7 processor which has 8 cores, and should be the equivalent to a current i7 processor. Once the system was set up, with the HDD, boot time to completed load was 1 min 55 sec (115s). Not impressive but fixable. The system also comes with a 30 day trial of McAfee installed - this I removed before any further testing. The basic system came with a std keyboard and mouse, which I upgraded to a Dell Alien gaming mouse and Alien Keyboard - both are an excellent improvement over the lightweight basic kbd/mouse. Now for a little gaming at 1080p (with a Dell Alienware AW2518HF monitor), first to check some frame rates on games, first Doom, where the average FPS topped an astonishing 150, beating my wildest expectation. On my "gaming" laptop core i7 950 i'd never seen over 100 - so a great start, very fluid graphics, and NO tearing, what-so-ever on the screen; whether this was RX580 or the 1ms Alienware monitor - color me very impressed. Next on Battlefield 1, again I was blown away by the smoothness and crisp transitions, the quality of the moving output was so much cleaner that I was accustomed to, FPS stayed above 80, and I heard the GPU fans kick into first and second gear. I took a quick look at Flight Simulator X; it was like a new experience. After playing a little longer I did start to notice the fan noise a bit more (both CPU & GPU fans) the longer I played, obviously the inner case heating up a bit. I hooked up a second monitor to double my monitor width (2160x1024) and pushed the graphic even further, and this caused the fans to rev up further where they were noticeable, but I kept looking at the screen quality going wow. But this far in I have to say this CPU graphic combination is a winner. AMD is back in the game, with the help of DELL and it's fine build quality. The con's, I think a modern system should come with a SSD, this system can easily be expanded to include one, but in the end I just felt it would cost a star. I did add a 512GB m.2 NVMe SSD (also note: Dell does not include the m.2 mounting screws), cloned the boot drive and the system now boots in just over 20s, it also loads everything much, much faster, it was a little over a $200 addition, but well worth it. The stock kbd/mouse are not worthy of this beautiful box. So Dell has a pretty great box to start with, but it needs a few additions: get a m.2 SSD, a better kbd/mouse and probably add another stick of memory to get full performance out of dual channel memory. One last note on the missing m.2 screws, the PCI expansion card slots also do not have screws in them, in a box that says upgrade me the screws should be provided as finding the right size quickly is often challenging.

      Powerful and Stylish Gaming Experience

      I have been a PC gamer for nearly 20 years. I have over the years built many systems myself but in more recent years I've had less free time so my hardware has unfortunately become increasingly dated. As a result I was extremely excited to get this Dell Inspiron 5675. With it I can easily get back to playing state of the art games on truly modern equipment. First off I was immediately taken by the design of this system. Compared to those over the top hideous gaming case monstrosities this Dell Inspiron gaming system has a sophisticated and pleasing design. The simple lines are sleek and modern but this cool linear design isn't all just for good looks. Approximately half the case is vented on the left side providing excellent airflow and cooling. A subtle blue glow emanates from within. Dell calls it Recon blue. I like it. The light bar can be turned off using the Dell light bar software but why would you when its so cool. Plenty of ports abound on the exterior. There are 6 USB 3.0 ports total with 4 on the back and 2 on the front. There are 4 USB 2.0 ports with 2 each on front and back. There is 1 USB 3.1 port. Also conveniently included on the front is a headphone port and an SD card reader. While the case is certainly not lacking in design I do wish the case was more metal opposed to being mostly plastic but trust me I'm can live with it. The fact is that to me the exterior is hardly my main concern. What lies within is what I was so excited about. The Dell Inspiron 5675 comes very nicely equipped with an AMD Ryzen 7 1700 8 core processor, 16gb memory, and an AMD RX580 video card. This potent combination will allow you to play any game currently out there and is definitely futureproof and upgradeable. The Ryzen 7 1700 is from the new critically acclaimed line of AMD processors which will provide powerful 8 core processing for all your gaming needs. If you're up to it and with some additional cooling the 1700 can be overclocked to speeds of the 1800x processor. Having 16gb of memory is the sweet spot for me and having the ability to upgrade to 32gb when I desire is excellent. The RX580 with 8gb of GDDR5 memory with 3 display port connections and 1 hdmi. The hdmi port supports 4k60 for when I inevitability upgrade to a 4k monitor. This card is clocked at 1340 MHz boost to deliver 6.17 TFLOPs of compute performance. All of which add up to spectacular gaming fun. The 5675 comes with a 1tb 7200 rpm hard drive. I regretted that this system did not come with an SSD drive but then I thought it's perhaps better to pick my own. I knew I would upgrade to SSD quickly due to the massive increase in performance. As I opened the case the first time I made a game changing discovery. The motherboard presented me 3 options to upgrade to SSD. I knew I could of course upgrade to a standard SATA III SSD but low and behold the motherboard also has two M.2 sockets! Very cool that Dell included this feature. If you're unfamiliar with this newer storage technology you won't be for long. These drives are small and fast. They look similar to a stick of ram but are smaller more like the size of a stick of gum. There is one socket for a SATA III M.2 drive which supports data transfer rates up to 6MB/sec which is the same top speed as a regular SATA SSD. Then there is a socket for a PCIe NVMe M.2 drive. Here is the hidden gem of this system as these drives support transfer rates up to 3500 MB/sec. I promptly ordered one and cloned it as my boot drive. Now this system boots in seconds and games load quickly and run super smoothly. Please note that upon installing these M.2 drives that there is a post onto which you secure the drive. Unfortunately Dell does not include the screws needed and most drives don't include them. So how does this all impact the gaming experience? What a blast! I first fired up some favorites which now with modern hardware presented a whole new playing experience. With settings now on high these games looked incredible and played so much more smoothly. I then moved onto games which weren't even playable on my old system. Call Of Duty Infinite Warfare looks stunning and runs on high settings at over 80 fps. The same with Titanfall 2. Overwatch plays at over 100 fps on the highest possible settings. It's great to be gaming again in the modern age. What a revelation as I now know what I've been missing. I also know that this Dell Inspiron 5675 is futureproof as I anxiously anticipate the arrival of COD WWII and Farcry 5. Treat yourself to some fun and get this system. Highly recommended.

      Great Gaming Out of the Box - CPU can be tweaked

      This is a solid entry level gaming PC. If building a gaming PC is currently not an option, and you want an affordable gaming rig, than this system can deliver. Visually, the computer is stunning. The blue LED lighting emanating through the grills along the front and sides is visually pleasing. You will be very proud to place this unit on your desk, or in a place others can see it. But make sure you have a lot of desk room, like most gaming PCs, the unit is large and heavy. Out of the box, the system performs very well. I definitely recommend uninstalling McAfee Antivirus before launching into gameplay. Also, I highly recommend checking for any system updates through Window's Update, as well as any driver updates to the BIOS, Chipset, and Video card from Dell's Support website. After performing these updates, I launched straight into gameplay. The system didn't have any problem running Star Wars Battlefront I in Ultra mode. It's not the most demanding first person shooter, but it held its ground quite well. To really test the system, I ran a video game benchmark program called Superposition by Unigine 2. It renders real gameplay visuals and produces various measure such as frames per second, as well as a composite score. Overall, this system did very well. It was able to maintain a respectable 40 frames per second under the High setting, and a solid 57 frames per second under the Medium setting (see included image). It's important to mention here that most games currently use only 1 core to run all it's components. So while this Dell system has a native 8 cores, only one will be utilized for most current games. This is the situation with all high-end PCs. These systems have more cores than can be utilized for most games. But that trend is slowly starting to change; there are already a few games that utilize multiple cores. It will be awhile before this becomes the norm, but this system is well suited for future games. And in terms of non gaming use, the multiple cores within this PC handle photo editing and video encoding extremely well. For those looking to improve the systems processing power even more, AMD makes it very easy to overclock the processors with its AMD Ryzen Master Utility. Again, considering that this is a "budget" gaming system, it makes sense to save by buying the standard Ryzen 1700 processor and overclocking it to match the higher-end 1700X or 1800 processors. And for those that are dead-set on buying only Intel processors, it's worth noting that this new line of Ryzen processors are now on the same playing field as Intel's current line of 7th generation processors in terms of performance and power efficiency. Both are built using the 14 nanometer manufacturing process and both can push the limits of raw GHz speed. A couple of critiques include the lack of a solid state drive (SSD) and the basic keyboard and mouse included in the box. Rather than including a relatively small SSD, Dell chose to include a 1TB traditional hard drive. Considering the low cost of traditional spinning drives, it makes sense that an SSD was not a part of this build; it would have driven up the price of this PC. Again, as a budget gaming PC, a SSD can be purchased later at a much better price and added to the system as an upgrade. Regarding the included keyboard and mouse, they should not be used for gaming. They're most likely included to allow for basic setup and use. Of course they will work for any game, but if you eventually have the means to purchase a gaming keyboard and mouse, it is highly recommended. Overall, this is a solid entry level gaming PC. Out of the box it can run all the latest games with aplomb. And if you're the adventurous type, a little overclocking can produce even better results.

      Good PC but not very configurable

      The PC case looks to be well made and is actually quite heavy. The blue accent lighting allows the computer to look very cool when in a low light condition. The mouse and keyboard however that came with it are cheap and you will definitely want to upgrade them right away. The specs are descent and you will be able to play any games currently on the market. If you are a serious gamer you will be disappointed if you open the case to try to do any upgrades. The plus side is that there is plenty of room to add a second RX 580 graphics card and the power connections are ready to go in the correct location. The negative is that the power supply is a wimpy 375 watts. I know Radeon cards are low power consumption, but you will need to upgrade to more watts if you add very many components. The way the power supply is installed you will not be able to add a power supply unit any bigger than the one installed. The only available power supply connections are the 6 pin, for an extra graphics card, and connectors to add additional hard drives. There is a basic fan and cooler on the CPU and one exhaust fan. There are no locations to place any additional fans. I bought a small fan that mounts in one of the open card slots, but could not use because there are no 4 pin adapters. I may try to find an adapter that will connect into a 2 pin adapter. The 16 GB of RAM is adequate for most of what you will need. The drawback is that there are only two RAM slots and one is taken up with the a 16 GB card. If you think you will need to upgrade to the maximum of 32 GB of RAM supported, it will cost you. 16 GB DDR4 2400 cards are hard to find and expensive. If you buy directly from Dell it will cost you $500. The cheapest I could find it online was $200. You can buy a set of two 16GB sticks for slightly less than $300. One thing I really like about the motherboard is that it supports the new M2 standard SSD cards and the M2-1 PCI-E SSD card. This is a simple and economical way to add extra hard drive space. I bought a 250 GB card to use as my boot disk for $125. Installation was easy, however if you do not notice one little detail in advance you will be very upset. The card slot has a small screw hole to hold the stick in place. The cards you buy do not supply the screw and Dell did not bother to provide one already on the motherboard, or any additional accessories to assist with upgrading. I had to piece together a solution to hold the card in place from a small nail that fit tightly in the screw hole and a lead pencil eraser to use as a make shift washer. Nobody wants to make an extra trip to a PC store to buy one very small screw for the install. Speaking of screws, the extra card slot covers do not include screws and the covers have to be broken off individually to provide an opening to install any cards. Once you remove the cover it will not go back in. There are plenty of USB slots. The back has (4) 3.0 and (2) 2.0 USB slots. There are (2) 3.0 and (2) 2.0 USB slots on the front. There is also (1) 3.1 slot on the front that will come in handy when the prices of the new 3.1 compliant external hard drives come down in price. In summary, if you want a computer to use right out of the box and do not plan on upgrading, this build will work fine. The speed of the computer is very good and the built in WiFi is fast. I was able to effortlessly connect a Bluetooth surround sound panel speaker to set my monitor on top of. If you like to 'tinker' with your computer and plan on upgrading, you will probably either want to custom build are go with another brand such as CyberPower.

      Firstly, I would like to mention that I am primarily a console gamer and had only played PC games on a very weak laptop with minimal graphics. I have always wanted a true gaming PC as I was gifted a ton of games on Steam by my friends and family members. I have to say that I am truly amazed at how this Dell gaming PC handles graphically intense games such as Forza Motorsport and Battlefield 1. I will now list my Pros and Cons with this desktop and why I think it deserves the highest rating. Pros: 1 - This desktop comes with an AMD Ryzen 7 processor which is able to handle multitasking and gaming with ease. The boot up times are quick and I was able to hop onto my games and applications in a snap. 2 - The Radeon Rx 580 graphics card is no slouch as games look stunningly beautiful at high resolutions. The Radeon settings applications is simple to use and allows you to adjust your graphic settings for gaming, video, and display. It is extremely useful for setting adjusting the graphic settings for each specific game you have and monitoring and controlling your GPU activity, temperature, clock, and fan settings through their overclocking features. I was able to see how hard my computer had to work for each game and adjust the settings to my liking. 3 - With a 1 TB hard drive and 16 GB of Ram I should have enough memory and storage for all my files and games. I did notice that installing games took less than a minute for small files and less than 10 minutes for large files just over 20 GB. 4 - The desktop is extremely quiet and not noticeable at all even when the fans are kicking. 5 - Extremely easy for a beginning PC gamer like myself to figure out the tricks to use the full potential of the desktop. Cons: 1 - Like many other windows PC's the desktop comes pre-installed with McAfee bloatware which really bogs down computer performance and even slowed down the downloading of my games. I uninstalled McAfee and substituted it for a different protection software which did improve my PC performance. 2 - The desktop ships with a standard keyboard and mouse which should almost definitely be replaced with a gaming keyboard and mouse if that is your preference. The keyboard is not backlit and feels a bit awkward to type with. Overall conclusion: I didn't find many things about this PC that I didn't like and even one of those things that I didn't like didn't have to do with the desktop itself but the items that ship with it. As a beginning PC gamer I am truly satisfied with this Dell desktop. AMD's software in this unit is amazing and I am sold on PC gaming. If you are looking to get into PC gaming and have decent budget and would rather have a desktop over a laptop then this unit is definitely worth a look.

      OVERVIEW I have had so many issues with Dells in the past but after going through 3 other desktops and this one being on sale i decided to give it a shot. After one month of heavy usage, I can honestly say, this desktop is amazing. Operation is quiet, speedy, and reliable. I have had NO major issues so far. Gaming is also amazing on this desktop. I have an HP 1080p 75hz freesync monitor to compliment it and performance is buttery smooth even on games such as Star Wars Battlefront II, Wolfenstien Colossus, and BF1 with max settings. THE LOOKS I believe the material used on the casing is aluminum and it is very beautiful. This desktop just LOOKS nice and very minimalist. The blue LED is not overpowering and just adds a nice glow. I'm glad didnt try to make this "for gamers" and crank up some red LED with a black case. The grey casing with a calm blue light is very flattering. UPGRADEABILITY There are 2 m.2 ssd slots with screws preinstalled. Also, the case is very easy to open and I replaced the HDD with an SSD quickly and performance is great! SOFTWARE/WINDOWS I would recommend a full wipe of the OS to get rid of all the Dell bloatware. Performance is much smoother after doing that.You can download Windows 10 on a USB from the microsoft site. (Google "Windows 10 ISO" and click the first microsoft.com link. The link should be titled "Download Windows 10 Disc Image (ISO File) - Microsoft" and then click "download tool now" and follow the steps to put the ISO onto a USB. You can youtube the steps from here. It is very easy) The only problem software -wise is that AMD drivers were interfering with BF2 drivers and there was major lag at the start of each match with CPU shooting up to 100%. But this was an AMD problem and I was able to fix the issue after looking it up online. TEMPERATURE/FAN NOISE/COIL WHINE The desktop runs very quiet and cool. Before this I had an HP Omen with an i7-6700K and a 980ti and it would be a FURNACE. It would get so hot that the stickers on the back melted off. This one is such a major improvement. It is very quiet and while I can hear it under my open desk area, it has never become bothersome in the least even when playing heavy games. The temperature is always at a comfortable level. Also, I have not heard any coil whine. I/O You get a slew of USB-A ports, an optical drive, and also a USB-C 3.1 port that does not support Thunderbolt. Also 2 HDMI and 2 DisplayPorts directly from the graphics card. Overall I love this desktop. I tried about 3 other desktops before this (HP Envy All-In-One 34, Cyberpower w/RX 560 from Best Buy, HP Omen with 1080ti) and this is the best bang for the buck by far. Awesome 1080p gaming performance, multitasking with absolutely NO lag even with 25 chrome tabs open with twitch and youtube streaming, quiet, cool, and a great price if you can get it on sale. Absolutely no regrets! Great Job Dell!

      I have mainly been a console gamer, but over the past couple years I have become more acquainted to computer gaming through just upgrading the necessary components of my desktop until I finally got this product from Dell. I had not associated Dell with gaming PC`s much, but after using this setup and playing quite a few games in the past week I can say I am thoroughly impressed and would definitely recommend this product. All the suggestions I`d received were always to go the route of building your own PC, but with this prebuilt computer I am confident that the price definitely is worth the time and energy someone would save researching the necessary components and actually building the PC. Firstly, the look of the PC when just taking it out of the box is quite impressive and upon powering it on it is something that definitely stands out either on or under your desk with the blue lights shining through the side of the case. I was able to turn them off if need be, but I have been choosing to leave them on for now. So naturally the aesthetics were exceptional and though for some people this does not matter, but for my personal preference this was a factor for me. Then with performance, once again I was amazed at truly how great this PC was for I had heard that prebuilt PCs were inferior, but this truly is not the case with this computer. I put numerous hours into both Overwatch and Battlefield to look at both the cartoonish look of Overwatch and realistic look of Battlefield to fully determine how well the Radeon RX 580 would stand up. At first I was truly impressed with how well it held up and over multiple games my opinion didn’t change. This was truly an upgrade for me, but I had played on higher end models before and I really can`t justify those much more expensive models over this PC. The Ryzen 7 was also something I was really intrigued about and I can definitely agree that it is comparable to the Intel line, that is for sure. The only negatives I really can say about this PC are really going to be unanimous among all gaming PCs in that it was a rather large unit (yet I can say the amount of ports available truly was astonishing and I doubt anyone would run out of room for any peripherals) and that the stock mouse and keyboard were subpar to which I think nearly every PC gamer is going to have upgraded versions than what comes stock with the PCs. Overall though playing on this PC truly is a great experience. I can rundown all the specific benchmarks it hit for each game (they were more impressive than I had imagined for a prebuilt), but from just a simplistic standpoint the overall look is great and the power behind this to play games (which is the point) is definitely in line with higher end models and I never had any problems with stutter or lag throughout all the games I did play. So I would thus definitely recommend this to those currently in the market for a true gaming PC that you can confidently play games on without having to worry about a subpar experience due to an inferior PC.
