    Great Gaming Out Of The Box

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    Beautiful Box

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    Great Gaming Out of the Box - CPU can be tweaked

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    Serious gaming rig that’s wallet friendly

    |
    Posted .

    This budget friendly gaming rig is no slouch! The latest Ryzen 7 1700 is plenty fast for today’s latest games at 3ghz and 8 cores. It may not tout the alienware badge and outer case but the internals are what matters most. This setup is also equipped with AMD’s Radeon RX-580 video card. This video card is very close to what I would consider the latest and greatest. Pros: · Great video card with freesync · Very quiet cooling · 16gb DDR4 2400 RAM · USB 3.0 ports on the front · Internal LED lights that aren’t obnoxious · Fast processor Cons: · No SSD hard drive but still boots up in just a tad over a minute · Mediocre keyboard and mouse I highly recommend this computer if you’re looking for an off-the-shelf gaming rig that’s robust enough to handle today’s games on extreme or near extreme settings. FPS may drop a tad on full details but not enough to be noticeable outside of a benchmark tool. The case LED can be turned off and its remarkably quiet so you can have it in the bedroom with no issues of sound and light pollution. It does come with the latest 64bit windows 10 but im more surprised that its not loaded with bloatware. The setup was easy and its nice knowing that this rig will run as intended without the guess and check of building your own gaming rig. With the budget friendly pricing, the balance of your budget can be spent on a nice gaming monitor that can take full advantage of the new video card. This rig can also support VR gaming but I have yet to try that out. I would suggest a monitor that supports the new freesync adaptive sync technology and 240hz. The Radeon RX-580 also only supports HDMI and displayport only monitors. Some minor enhancements will further enhance your gaming experience but are not needed. I would suggest adding an SSD drive and upgrade your keyboard and mouse to your liking if youre wanting to upgrade/mod. Otherwise, its still awesome straight out of the box and I was gaming in no time. Game on!

    Dell nearly got this gaming desktop perfect!

    |
    Posted .

    The Dell - Inspiron Desktop - AMD Ryzen 7 1700 - 16GB Memory - AMD Radeon RX 580 - 1TB Hard Drive - Recon Blue is a beast when it comes to a high-end gaming computer on a budget! This computer over-performed my expectations for an AMD computer and I was pleasantly surprised by the results. There was tons of power and responsive performance from this budget option. Having had bad experiences with AMD's in the past, I wasn't entirely sure I would like what this desktop would offer. From a gaming perspective, I ran it through some old skool games of the past as well as current games to explore its possibilities and overall I was pleased. The only major hang up I have had with this system is that it is saddled to Windows 10 Home edition which seems to need to update and use the processor at the most inopportune times. Unfortunately, even with all the power this computer possesses, it could not overcome the pitfalls of the Windows OS and got burdened down a couple of times when I was trying to use it for a game. PROS - TONS OF POWER! - Amazing performance when Windows isn't being windows. - The AMD Ryzen 1700 (8-core) processor and independent AMD graphics card makes this very responsive - all on a budget friendly option. - 16 GB of DDR4 RAM right out of the Box so there isn't an immediate need to upgrade after purchase! - 1 TB Hard Drive provide sufficient HD space for most users - More inputs than most people will ever use... (6) SS-USB, (4) USB, (1) USB-C, (1) SD Card Reader, (1) HDMI, (3) DisplayPorts, about 5-6 audio output jacks, and more - Very expandable with room to grow in the tower and up to 32 GB (2-slot) RAM - A nice overall design and look CONS - Saddled to the Windows 10 Home OS - Comes with a basic Dell keyboard and wired mouse, not a gaming keyboard or mouse as one would like when purchasing a gaming computer. - AMD's reputation compared to that of Intel. - Hard Drive is not solid state - Optical Drive does not include Bluray Overall, this is an amazing desktop for gaming and will handle anything you play! I would recommend it to most people, however, it doesn't make 4 stars because of the few areas lacking listed above.

    I was hesitant to make this purchase, but i am so glad i did! I have had this computer for over a month now and felt it was time to write a short review. This thing is a powerhouse! I work from home and have a billion windows open at the same time, this computer can handle the work load. I have yet to feel any sluggishness or struggle from the machine. The boot-up time is super fast. and the tower itself has that awesome blue light, looks pretty futuristic especially when the lights in the room are off. I am loving this computer. There are enough USB ports on this thing to charge a Tesla! but seriously... 10 USB ports! Plenty screen outputs to handle 4 monitors. I usually game on an Xbox, but now i am contemplating trying out some PC games, possibly even some VR, I know this computer can handle just about anything, and well worth the price compared to way more expensive towers that do basically the same thing. I think this computer was a bargain for the power. If it was stolen tomorrow, i would buy it again.

    Was good, but GPU was 480 !! Returned it :-(

    Posted .

    I liked this computer for the time I had it, however the GPU came AMD 480 and not 580 like the specs said.. I installed linux in it and runs great, I was installing the wrong drivers so that's how I found out it had a different GPU than what it was "sold"... Please update that error so people will buy what they read. I bought it for $1,000 so now I see price has dropped to $800.. Just update that GPU info please, or put in the PC the correct graphics that you advertise, thanks. I went back to the same store and they hadn't done anything.

    Powerful and Stylish Gaming Experience

    |
    Posted .

    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 Beginners Gaming Desktop

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    Good PC but not very configurable

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    Rivals Fastest Intel Chips. Solid Gaming PC

    |
    Posted .

    I used mainly AMD processors in my early computing life due to their outstanding performance per dollar compared to Intel chips. Despite the outstanding value, AMD's recent best processors could barely compete with lower end Intel Core I series...until now. AMD's Ryzen series can confidently go up against Intel's middle of the pack to upper tier level of processors and that makes me happy to switch back to AMD. First off this Inspiron 5675 Gaming PC is designed well and it shows with its sleek and cool looking desktop case. LED lit Dell logo combined with the diagonal grill split of the case chassis really looks good here. Opening the case reveals a clean but high end feeling interior that says gaming to me. Onto real world gaming performance. I tested the 5675 with Battlefield 1, Flight Simulator X and Elder Scrolls Oblivion. Max settings with BF1 and Oblivion is a cinch with this computer. Flight Simulator X had always been tough to run on higher settings with AMD chips until now. Ryzen is more than capable of tackling on this tough task and FSX ran with near optimal settings. The Ryzen 7 1700 combined with 16GB DDR4 RAM and the RX 580 graphics card make for a very underrated gaming machine here. Overall I am very impressed with this Dell gaming PC. I have never really associated Dell with elite gaming PC builds but with these newly released gaming desktops I am changing my mind already. Sleek desktop exteriors that match with the blazing fast performance on the inside. The CPU can be a little too noisy for my liking on full load but you can easily change the CPU fan to another brand. Excellent value overall and highly recommended.

    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!

    What's in the box ----------------- Dell Inspiron Desktop - AMD Ryzen 7 1700 - 16GB Memory - AMD Radeon RX 580 - 1TB Hard Drive Dell KB216 wired keyboard & Wired Mouse Included DVD RW Drive Bluetooth capable HDMI & USB Type C Windows 10 Installed So What's a Gaming desktop --------------------------- - A gaming computer is a personal computer designed for playing computationally demanding video games. So what makes this different? It is the AMD Ryzen 7 1700x which has 8 core processing & AMD Radeon RX 580 Graphics card, it;s the combination along with the 16GB RAM which rocks this thing! This thing is 8 core as compared to Any dell i7 Desktop which is 4 core and that really makes it different that any i7 desktop How does it look ----------------- really looks massive and pretty, the blue accent lighting makes it stand out. This paired with an alienware 25 inch monitor totally looks out of the world AMD? Really? Yes! Its changed ------------------------------ I used to have a few laptops running AMD A8, A10 and they were never able to compete with the intel's desktop which used to be super smooth and not lagging like the AMDs BUT, THIS THING IS AGAME CHANGER FOR AMD! How did i test -------------- I bought the latest Battlefield 4 game and i also have played battlefield 4 on the xbox one. This one beats that thing out of the water. i also bought a set of nice logitech speakers to go with this. the room really looks like the den now, love it Worth the purchase ------------------ you are not buying a 300$ desktop, this is the top of the line desktop, so you will need to compare it to an i7 to be fair, with that being said, i can sell off my xbox one and play games on this one, also doubles up as a regular work desktop , so why not! Worth buy!!

    Great Gaming PC

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    Best Performance for Price

    Posted .

    I've been playing with this computer for about a week now and it is amazing. I put Battlefield1 in heavy rotation and was thoroughly impressed. With all the settings Ultra the game hums along at over 60fps without even starting to tax the RX580 GPU. The design is fairly minimal compared to other gaming units, and it may be my advancing age but I quite like something that can sit on my desk next to my work machines and doesn't look like a monster truck at a Bentley convention. It has plenty of USB 3.1 connections and USB-C front and center where its easily accessibly. Bluetooth 4.1 is also supported which means all of your latest BT peripherals will work. While I definitely give my hard earned (and rare) 5 stars to this desktop and plan to use it for many years to come both as a development and gaming rig there are a few cons worth noting: Plastic Case: As I said I personally like the minimalist style but it is a plastic cover and doesn't feature the same stylistic or functional (heat) as more expensive models made by gaming-specific brands. Cooling: Only two fans are included in the unit. Reading on the forums the 1700 is the best of the 7-series Ryzens but that's mainly because you can overclock it to the same speed as the 1800X and 1700X - in this configuration cooling would be an issue and I'm probably not going to overclock. Expansion: This seems to be built without future-proofing as there isn't a whole lot of room for expansion even though its relatively easy to open the case, you don't have a whole lot of options once your in there. Blu-RAY: overall I would've appreciated a blu-ray drive but its a small annoyance since I can stream just about all my movies at this point. Peripherals: Hopefully you already have a good keyboard and mouse because the ones that ship are functional but not great. This was my first AMD experience in a number of years, and it was totally worth switching.

    Reasonably priced gaming PC w/exc performance!

    The Dell Inspiron 5675 has a nicely designed case with plenty of ventilation on the sides, the front panel contains the following: a DVD tray, 4 USB ports (2 - USB 3.0 and 2 - USB 3.1), audio jack and a SD card slot. The best part of this case is the glowing blue LED lighting that emits from the side and rear of the case and the "Dell" logo when the PC is powered up! Enough about the outside, it's what's inside that counts. The Dell 5675 features AMD's Ryzen 7 1700 processor, 16GB of RAM and a Radeon RX580 8GB graphics card. There is space inside for 3 HDD and 2 SSD's, RAM can be upgraded to 32GB. Needless to say, I could not wait to get this setup and load some games on it! It has been a while since I've played games on a PC. I switched to a gaming console many years ago. At first, I wondered why people still played games on a computer vs. a dedicated gaming console. After loading "Star Wars Battlefield" and "Overwatch" on it...add 10+ hours of game play, I can see why! This graphics on this Inspiron 5675 is amazing, very detailed and the gameplay is fast and smooth, no hiccups what so ever! Games load faster than they do on my Xbox. Using the keyboard to control your character and switch weapons is easier than console controllers. The included keyboard and mouse is very generic and not geared towards gaming. The computer runs fairly quiet, there is some noise from the fan, but not very noticeable. I also installed Adobe Lightroom and loaded a collection of photos from my SLR onto it. Again, the performance was great. Response was very quick to view and edit photos. Switching from photo view to thumbnail view was quick. Overall, this is a great setup for anyone looking for an out of the box gaming PC. It's a very capable machine that won't disappoint

    Good value & powerful gaming PC

    Posted .

    This new Inspiron 5675 PC from Dell really impressed me. It features the new AMD Ryzen processors that are finally making waves again as a serious competitor to the Intel Core i7 line, as well as a powerful AMD video card, and a healthy 16 GB of DDR4 RAM. Best of all, the price seemed to be pretty competitive with the cost of purchasing similar components and assembling them myself. If you're looking for a PC to use for gaming and aren't interested in building one yourself, I don't think you'll be disappointed by purchasing one of these Inspirons. Basing the system on Ryzen CPUs was a smart move. Although Intel's Core i7 CPU's still come out on top in most benchmarks, the Ryzen 1700 CPU in this PC is no slouch. It's loaded with 8 cores supporting 16 logical threads, so it easily handles standard desktop multitasking outside of video games. Video encoding and multi-threaded software compiling can really take advantage of the extra cores, and this PC always feels very responsive. The 16 GB of memory included is a respectable amount. It came on a single DDR4 DIMM; the motherboard in this PC supports 2 total DDR4 DIMMs. Some people may be disappointed, since the Ryzen CPU won't be able to take full advantage of its dual-channel memory support. On the other hand, it allows an easy upgrade path to 32 GB by just adding another DIMM. Personally, I consider this a plus as I'm likely to do the upgrade in the future. The Radeon RX580 included with this PC is not the fastest on the market (and not even the fastest AMD card with the recent launch of the Vega series), but is still one of the best mainstream GPU's. It's easily handled every game I've thrown at it with great framerates at 1080p. This is the first GPU and monitor combo I've had that supports adaptive v-sync (FreeSync, in this case) and it's worked really well. My biggest complaint with this system was the lack of an SSD included as part of the base system. I consider that a must-have for any PC, and really missed having one. The good news is that the Ryzen-based Inspirons include an empty NVMe socket, as well as an M.2 SATA socket. (Plus both an empty 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch internal drive bay.) I decided to install an after-market SSD as a new boot drive, and turn the included 1 TB mechanical Seagate HDD into mass storage for my Steam library. Doing this is not a difficult process, but it definitely helps to have some experience with hardware installation and Windows re-installation. If you don't like tinkering with your PC's, I'd recommend going with the upgraded configuration that includes a 256 GB SSD. (If you don't mind the DIY route, be aware that you will need to supply your own screws for the M.2 modules or internal drive bay brackets.) The bottom line is that the Inspiron 5675 has so far lived up to my expectations. I've always built my own PC's for gaming, but the Inspiron 5675 turned out to be a very satisfactory upgrade to my last custom PC. The MSRP looks like quite a good value, and performance seems excellent for both games and general computing tasks (with just a simple SSD upgrade). I'd certainly recommend it for anyone looking for a good performing PC, and especially anyone that has an interest in playing any recent, reasonably-demanding games.

    Well priced entry level gaming computer

    I decided to buy, instead of build this time, a gaming system since my last one was 6 years old. I spent many months researching price vs components and kept running into a lot of overpriced/underwhelming systems in stores and on the web. So, I kept holding out hoping something would show up and happened upon this new Dell system. I hadn't used AMD processors in the past, read a lot of great stuff about Ryzen, and decided to dive in. Once this system went on "sale" for $100 off I drove out to the store and bought it. So how does function? For the price vs components you can't beat this. It has held up against everything I've thrown at it. As for 4K handling, I don't know. 1080P doesn't challenge the RX 580 GPU though. Games are smooth and the graphics are excellent! So my complaints about this system? 1) The cooling setup for this computer sucks. Do you need a space heater in the winter? If so, just sit next to this system and you'd think there was a heatwave. I did upgrade the CPU cooling to a a Noctua AM4 cooler, and then to a DeepCool AIO water cooler. The water cooling helped, but the box still gets hot. I also added a 92mm fan to the front interior of the case (the empty fan spot buried behind the GPU support bracket). Still, the temperature ran high. It comes down to the interior of this system is cramped with poor airflow. Had they added a 120mm exhaust fan to the top of the case (or a blue LED 120mm to the side) I would expect the temperature to cool significantly. So, do I recommend? Yes, if you are starting out in gaming systems this is a great entry point. Plus, down the road, you can always upgrade the case and motherboard (which I did) and reuse the GPU, CPU, RAM, and HDD. Oh... one recommended immediate upgrade. Take advantage of the M.2 NvME SSD slot and get a card for it. The HDD that comes pre-installed will only slow you down and shouldn't be used to run Windows.

    My Non-Tech Review

    |
    Posted .

    I wanted to make this review as easy to understand that I could without as much as tech jargon as I can. So, based on that, here we go. The Dell Inspiron Gaming Computer arrived in a nondescript box with minimal markings that did not relay the goodness inside. Upon opening, I located the dark grey, plastic, and somewhat imposing computer. The box has all the connections needed, a not very impressive keyboard and mouse and quick start guide. I thought for a gaming computer it would have a robust keyboard and mouse, but unfortunately no. These will need to be replaced quickly. I got everything hooked up (to include a hard-lined ethernet cord) pretty quickly and and booted up. The blue internal LEDs are cool and make a "gaming" statement but are not overbearing like some other gaming manufacturers. The internal light can be shut off via a desktop control app. The system has a optical drive on the front, as well as an SD card reader and multiple USB ports. Some of these are the newest USB 3.1 type that allow for high speed transfers. Below the optical drive is also a "blank" drive bay so you can quickly upgrade. On the rear are plenty of USB, sound and ethernet connectors. The system is equipped with an AMD Radeon 580 graphics card which has several DisplayPort and HDMI connectors and has a rather loud fan when the system is being stressed. Internally is has a 1 terabyte drive for storage/programs and 16 gigabytes of system memory. It can be increased to 32 gigabytes if you need and have the money. It has several drive bays for additional drives and the motherboard will accept many of the newer "stick" M2 style SSD drives (which allow your system to boot faster). After all the registrations and updates the system was ready for some tests. It should be noted that there is some Dell bloatware and unnecessary software, top of which was McAfee software that seemed to cause a rather significant slowdown. I ran several graphics and systems software tests (all can be downloaded for free) to test and stress the system. This computer was able to speed through all tests and the graphics tests always resulted in the high margin area. I played a few games (Need for Speed, COD, etc) and they all ran smoothly with a very high frame rate which allowed for smooth gameplay. It has some short term Office software as well as some other Dell software that I guess can be useful, it depends on your needs. Overall, I am very impressed with this computer. I have not owned a higher end "gaming" system from Dell (by another name) but I can tell you for me this is an impressive system that will meet most gamer's needs without having to spend for the top name system or processor. The AMD Ryzen 7 1700 equalled or exceeded some of the other "big name" processors. Only downside for me was the keyboard and mouse that will need updating or replacing soon. Definitely should be on your consideration list if a gaming computer is in your future! Good Shopping!

    Great PC value for beginner and enthusiast alike

    Let me preface this by saying I have built my last two computers. My previous one lasted me 6 good years and just went kaput (needed new power supply). I looked into replacing PSU and upgrading the motherboard, video card, etc, but took a look at Dell's line of gaming PC's just for giggles. Turns out there was no way I was going to be able to build a PC anywhere near the price I was able to buy this at. I was fortunate to find an open box in my local BB for 700 before taxes. This included everything except for the mouse and keyboard (I've read these are garbage anyways) and power cord, which the salesperson was kind enough to give me a new one. The machine itself runs great. Fans are a little loud, but I wear head phones most of the time so it doesn't bother me. I also spent another 120 to buy an nvm.e SSD drive to install windows 10 and use as my boot drive. My computer now boots in less than 10 seconds. This is a well balanced computer that will be able to handle any game you throw at it, and the 7-core processor can handle multiple tasks with ease. There is room to upgrade once this rig starts showing its age. You can eventually double the RAM to 32 gb, and you can also buy a second RX 580 video card and run it in SLI, though you'll need to upgrade your power supply to handle it, and the 580 is prohibitively expensive right now. I'll wait a couple of years where hopefully I can grab the RAM, card, and PSU for around $200. Sure beats buying a new computer!
