Summary: First impressions. This PC is great!, it came with nothing I had to delete to use - basic Windows 7 home premium and a few Dell apps no garbage, no ads. Replaced an Acer Predator that died in 2 years, never had a Dell fail even when I wanted it to die. Boots fast. Has 3 video outputs - HDMI, DVI and VGA. Does not have ps/2 ports for mouse/keyboard but offers 6 usb ports on the back as well as 4 in the front.
Summary: Built solid. Great airflow. Excellent power supply. Fast. Reliable. If you want a computer to tinker with get a custom job. This was made to do the job and it gets it done. The 630i WAS good in it`s day but now there are other options. You can also read a review at Newegg on this. It`s also rated 5 eggs. There are no weak points.
Summary: Great PC for the price I love it ! It's absolutely phenomenal. I can play flight simulators and any game on steam with this pc no problems. I average like 75 frames per second its silly. I can always get a different video card for it but I really don't need to as of now. This PC is so nice I cannot emphasize that any more. I will keep this thing at least 5 years. I play on steam and it will run any game easy with no problems.
Excerpt: In the box: CPU, Mouse, Keyboard Fast, easy to set up, lots of USB ports in several locations, Built in card readers on the top front of the case. One of the reasons I got this PC was the ability to expand it from 12GB of RAM to as much as 32GB if needed. With the 12 GB of RAM you can flip through images very quickly in LR Library You don't get any software CD's with this system. You will need to make your own back on a external hard drive or on 16GB or larger USB drive.

Summary: I didn't care about not getting Windows 7 Professional. Premium is fine. The computer was a steal at the Thanksgiving price of $529. Right out of the box you can play Battlefield 4 on low without many problems. The case is awesome and upgrading this thing will be a piece of cake so you'll be able to get a good 5 years of PC gaming right year if you upgrade your graphics card. The extra card slots are also very convenient.
Summary: It has more then enough memory to run games has a fair video card. But the best part the memory can be be upgraded to 32 gb .PLus the computer can grow with you. If you want to upgrade anything.
Summary: Fast comp, great value. I previously owned an E8400 OC'd to 3.4ghz with a GeForce GTX 460 SE. It had lasted me 6.5 years and is still alive and will act as our back-up computer now but it was really starting to show it's age. It ran modern games fairly well on low settings but still chugged on CPU intensive applications. Fast forward to the XPS 8700. There is really no comparison, huge upgrade all around.
