This is lifted from slickdeals. Normally I wouldn't mention such but this seems pretty close to what it would cost to build the system yourself. The three negatives I see are a non-k processor; a hd instead of ssd and the case but that is a matter of taste:

You will have to head over to slickdeals to figure out how to use the sd rebate.

Maybe this post should be in pre-built forum. Personally I'm not shopping for a new system but for a complete system with 1080 it seems like a decent deal.

If you use Ebates, you also get 10% back. Pretty good deal I guess.

At the very least, this is neat and unlike anything I've seen in a case before:



Innovative, tool-less access.

A uniquely designed PSU swing-arm keeps graphics and expansion cards safely secured and easy to upgrade, no tools necessary. The tool-less accessibility also makes it easy to reach memory modules and up to 5 storage drives.

Dell cases in general are fanstastic. Kind of wish some of their features would be found in off the shelf cases. I particually like their tool less drive bays and wind tunnels for the processors.Two dislikes I remember from my computer at work is that it can be hard to reach sata ports (on mb) and their psu; while proven to be reliable over the years; are very minimal (don't lend much headroom for upgrades). These comments are general and not specific to this system as I did not bother to check the specific psu or layout for the sata ports.

The 2 Dell Vostros I've had at work were very quiet at first, though got louder at retirement age (4-5 years) since it wasn't worth the effort to disassemble them to give the CPU heatsink a thorough cleaning.
