Today, Dell is selling the powerful quad-core XPS 8900 desktop PC for just $599.99. Simply apply coupon code “XPS599” in your shopping cart to get the deal.
On the inside, this model features a Skylake quad-core 3.4GHz Intel Core i7-6700 CPU, a discrete Nvidia GeForce GT 730 graphics card (with 2GB of memory), a 1TB 7200RPM hard drive, 8GB of DDR4 RAM, a DVD burner, Bluetooth 4.0, and 802.11b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi support.
A wired mouse and keyboard combo are included in the asking price, so all you’ll need to buy separately is a display. And since this configuration offers a built-in HDMI port and DisplayPort, you can easily connect to many existing PC monitors and HDTVs.
Keep in mind, there’s plenty of room here to expand your computing experience. If you want to turn this into a more capable gaming rig, you could easily upgrade to a GeForce GTX 960 for about $175. And if you’re willing to upgrade the power supply down the road, you can move up to an even better card.
Looking to run a couple of virtual machines? This setup supports up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM. And if you want more storage to make this a top-notch media server, it has three internal hard drive bays available. Load up on low-cost 2TB drives, install a copy of Plex, load up your media library, and you’re ready to stream.
Even if you don’t feel like opening up the case to expand your storage, you’re still covered. With six USB 3.0 ports and four USB 2.0 ports, you can add countless peripherals without ever lifting a screwdriver. For about $80 on Amazon, you can snag a 2TB USB 3.0 external hard drive, and quickly triple your storage.
This machine comes with Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) installed by default, but a license for Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) comes along for free. Whenever you’re ready to upgrade, you’ll have access to local Xbox One game streaming, the Cortana personal assistant, and countless apps in the Windows Store at no additional cost.
