For a limited time, Dell is offering up a 36% total discount on the new XPS 8900 desktop PC. With a new Skylake CPU, incredibly fast DDR4 memory, and plenty of room for expansion, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better PC with a price this low.
In terms of specs, the XPS 8900 is rocking a sixth generation quad-core 3.4GHz Intel Core i7-6700 processor, 16GB of DDR4 RAM (2133MHz), a discrete Nvidia GeForce GTX 745 graphics card (with 4GB of memory), a 2TB 7200RPM hard drive, a DVD burner, Bluetooth 4.0, and 802.11b/g/n WiFi support. A wired keyboard and a wired mouse are included at no extra cost, so you’ll just need an HDTV or PC monitor to get going. Thankfully, it has both an HDMI port and a DisplayPort, so it should easily work with the majority of modern displays.
By default, this configuration comes with Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) installed by default, but a license for Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) is included for free. If you go through the upgrade process, you’ll benefit from the Cortana personal assistant, the dedicated Xbox app, the new Edge browser, and countless apps in the Windows Store.
The GeForce GTX 745 that comes with this machine will work fine with many games, but you’ll probably want to invest in a newer card if you’re interested in getting high-end performance on recent releases. The CPU and RAM in this model are already superb, so a new graphics card is probably the only upgrade worth making any time soon. And regardless of which card you end up with, the availability of DirectX 12 and game DVR in Windows 10 will substantially improve your gaming experience.
Ordinarily, this machine sells for upwards of $1332.99, but Dell is currently selling it directly for just $1199.99. Apply coupon code “XPSDTDEAL” during checkout, and the price will drop down to $849 (plus any applicable taxes). And since the shipping is free, you’ll be saving even more.
