Desktop deals this Boxing Day?
Anyone see any good deals on desktops?
Looking for something low- to mid-range.
Haven't seen anything that catches my eye.

If you don't mind going open box - DFSDirect has some great deals from time to time. Last week they had a coupon for 20% off open box and I got a 23" 1080p AIO Core i5, 6GB RAM, 1TB HDD, TV tuner (with remote) system for about $475 before cashback. I'm pretty sure it's touchscreen on top of all that (cause Dell listed as a 2320T vs 2320), but won't know for sure until it shows up...

I'm shoping for a good desktop in the same price range and quite frankly, I'm a bit disapointed by the options so far My budget is also 600-700$.
Here are the ones I'm potentially interested in so far :
http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=77...Entra%20series (Thanks to a fellow RFDer for telling me about this deal) - 569 +tx + shipping = approx 650$
Dell will have an Inspiron 660 at 479 (check their Boxing day flyer, 100$ off regular price) that has decent specs but Intel Integrated Graphics (which sucks if you plan to play any somewhat demanding PC games) + 4%cashback via RFD
Dell currently has (until tomorrow morning) an XPS 8500 @ 649$ that also has good specs and NVIDIA entry level video card +4% cashback via RFD
Best Buy will have a few interesting ACERs, HPs and ASUS desktops in the 500$ range (check their flyer page 5) and one tempting HP FX-8350 at 700$.
I really can't seem to find any mind-blowing deal though... But a lot of OK deals.

I just ended up buying their XPS 8500 @699$ (wouldn't let me stack any coupons sadly... ). Specs are pretty good for that price point plus should get 4% Cashback :

Would have preferred better video card (GDDR5) instead of BD drive but at that price I really can't complain, I'll update the video card once my warranty expires. Here are the basic specs :
i5-3350P (@3.10Ghz), 16 GB RAM (@1600Mhz), 1GB NVIDIA GT620 (better than Intel Integrated I guess!), 1TB SATA III drive, BD drive.
Originally reatils for 999$ (Site says 949$ but yesterday I am 100% sure this build was 999$).
Again, not a mind blowing deal, just an warmish one.
EDIT : CRAP! It's actually 649$ because they are showing a 50$ rebate for all Windows 8 PCs that, for some reason, did not apply itself when I checked out ... How do I get my 50$ back?!
