5 out of 5 eggsOne of the Better Dells!

Pros: Bought this same PC from a major warehouse based in the US for $699.

Is fast, the i7-4770 really delivers performance while remaining cool, surprisingly so for stock (avg 28-34C after 5-6 hours of browsing).

NVIDIA 645 1GB GDDR5 isn't the quietest card around, but for the price, it's far better than the AMD Radeon 7570 offered in some models for the same price.

460W "Bronze" rated PSU allows for several GPU choices, with two 6 pin GPU power leads.

mSATA port on MB for future upgrade, plus all ports are SATA 3.

Boots to Windows 7 Pro inside of 15 seconds (see "Other Thoughts").

Runs the host OS plus 3 virtual machines w/out breaking a sweat.

Holds up to 32GB DDR3 1600MHz RAM.

Cons: Wasn't offered years earlier. In 2009, I paid this price for a PC that wasn't 10% of the backbone of this one.

Other Thoughts: This isn't the most expensive XPS 8700 model, but it's highly upgradable. No longer do we have to deal with Dell's special connectors to upgrade components, all are stock Intel compatible components. Wi-FI & Bluetooth are standard, so is the MAXX 7.1 digital audio that won a Grammy.

I have since added a 120GB Samsung 840 EVO & installed Windows 7 Pro, as well as swapped the NVIDIA 645 for a MSI Radeon 7770 GHz edition, both components bought at Newegg for less than $200 for the two.

So if one wants a good base PC that can be built up, one cannot go wrong with the XPS 8700.

This PC is for enthusiast use, running 2-3 virtual machines most of the time.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Workstation

Pros: The speed of this PC compared to the price is outstanding. The only downside is the video card was made specifically from Dell, so you can't use the nvidia drivers (such as the latest up-to-date ones) - you have to rely on Dell to release updates.

Secondly, pop in an SSD and reinstall Windows 8. You can order the Windows 8 disk for FREE from Dell, and it only takes a couple of days for it to get to you - they send it via air - how cool!

Other than that, this computer can easily handle multitasking! All the USB's are USB 3.0 with USB 2.0 fallback. There are 3 extra SATA ports available (from what I remember) as well. A quick reliable PC, not too loud either, 5/5 eggs.

Cons: Doesn't ship with an SSD

Other Thoughts: If you're looking into hardcore gaming, such as supporting the latest games, this wouldn't be the PC for you. However, if you play some of the older games (not too old, but not the latest and greatest) - I'm sure it could handle it. I use this as a multitasking office workstation for development, image (photoshop), and video (sony vegas) production. Works well and renders fast!

1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy this.

Pros: Runs great new. Quite, fast, smooth.

Cons: It will fry on you faster than bacon. I had 2 of these shipped direct from Dell. First one last 3 days with Cryengine 3 game designer. Motherboard fried. The Motherboard is some cheap version of something good intel makes. The second one fried 1.5 weeks in and this time it was the graphics, running Arma 3 on low settings.

Other Thoughts: This computer and Dell computers should be boycott. They are crud systems with 3rd rate products and equipment that don't even have manuals or information on them online. The motherboard in this system is made by Ft-ards in pakistan... They will fry quicker than you can turn it on and start to wonder what you will do first.

1 out of 5 eggsDVD drive inop

Pros: Seems to work OK mostly

Cons: The DVD drive is not working properly, pressing the switch it doesn't open it, it shows in device manager as working properly, right clicking and trying to eject in "my computer" gives me a message that it failed to eject.

Other Thoughts: Came in that way, disappointing, now I have to waste my time dealing with it.
