Hi folks,

Just pulled the trigger on Alienware R6 Gaming PC. Specs are i7 7700K/8GB RAM/1TB 7200 HDD/GTX1080 8GB GDDR5/Blue-ray burner/watercooled . Were able to bring price down to $1614. with Ebates 10% on Dell.ca it's even better = $1453 plus taxes. Shipping is free. To bring the price down from initial sale price of $1849 login to your Ebates.ca account and then on dell.ca use coupons such as: STUDENTFIVEOFF for 5% discount and $150OFF$1700PC for additional $150 off. Eventially it'd cost you $1849 - $85 -$150 - EB$161 = $1453 plus applicable taxes and env.fees depending on province. Pretty sweet deal in my opinion for having i7 7700K and nvidia GTX1080 w 8GB GDDR5. Ram memory and ssd you can buy elsewhere since they overpriced at Dell. And yeah, don't forget that you will get 90 days $50 promo card with Dell after purchase.

Thanks

8 gigs of ram lol. Anyone want to price each component and see what they can build from scratch?

We don't have the purchasing power of Dell so it's not easy to build at this budget.
Not buying something on sale is not a crime.

Definitely a good deal for strictly speaking combined parts, but it seems like an odd time to be buying a 7700k when 8700k is coming out in 2 weeks.

Also 1080 are as low as $600 now. So... still a good deal if you absolutely need this system now. I imagine Z270 motherboard and CPU will have to drop in value in 2 weeks.

I'm running 8 gigs of ram with no problems. Depends on what you play I guess.

Oh I think most can live with 8 for what I do no but I just thought was funny that it's matching the Video Ram now hehe.

Just the CPU and GPU comes to $1100, this is a good deal. If you're only gaming, 8GB is actually still fine.

CPU $360
RAM $90
HDD $50
GPU $650
Motherboard $100-200
cpu cooler $100
psu $100
case $100

adds to $1550

Pre-builts probably have the lower end parts though. So if the prices are close you would want to build yourself anyway.
If you're sinking 1600 into a build might as well spend a tiny bit more for better parts.

Also, SSD is pretty important,if not convenient, I would say...

Damn tempting to cancel the Dell Inspiron 7000 laptop with gtx 1060 and get this one... was originally looking for a gaming desktop and that laptop was pretty good deal and portable. But this is way better specs? Should I?

Don't get a laptop if you're not gonna need to carry it around.
Desktop is a strictly better choice performance and price wise.

Hey guys, just want to add that it's easier to deal with Dell's 1-year warranty. Plus if you'd buy with major credit card you can easily get 2-year warranty on you R6 desktop

Very good price and tempting, but like the other guy said, with the 8th. gen coming out we should hopefully see more of these systems go on clearance for an even bigger discount so am gonna double down and wait till BF to see what transpires...

Missing the OS (a legit one, not an MSDN key), Also PSU is a modular 850W one, most likely rated silver or above if I believe what I see inside. so definitely more than just 100$

You can get a 850W SeaSonic gold rated for $130.
Not sure if it's a good one though.

As for the OS...depends on the person if you want to include the cost...i guess...
At worst you can buy a key for like $15.
