when you go to the dell page and configure, you can chose the 2080 super as an option. see my screenshot on original post.

I bought this during the best buy deal. Is there a decent sub $500 2k monitor that would go well with this?

Do you order the whole desktop at dell.com instead of costco?

How do I use the 10% ebates and 10% dell rebate at the same time please? I might get that instead. I have the code for Dell already.

Hi there everyone. I have an older pc about 5 years old, still running great. Can I purchase this high end Pc and take it to like BestBuy and get them to put my hard drive from my older PC to this new one? I would like to use the older drive as mainly storage as I have all my music and photos on it. So I would only access data from it while have the main operating system and all software on the new PC hard drive. Thanks

Do you happen to know if the fans tend to be quite loud normally? I bought the R8 during the Dell sale, and it seems to be quite loud (decibel checker I downloaded on my phone had it clocked around 60 db consistently and sometimes touching 70). Maybe this is just normal but it sounds abnormally loud during games. I know I can manually input the fan speeds but its something I'm just worried about.

There should be an extra slot where you could install your old hard drive in. I'm like 99% sure there's an extra slot because I have an older model with a 1080ti and the same case.

That should work. If you're willing to google or YouTube you will save yourself some money doing it yourself. Moving a HDD probably one of the easier computer building tasks to learn.

It's definitely possible and its easy. even if there isn't room inside you can get an external enclosure

I'm waiting for mine to ship so I'm not sure. I recall reading something about noise either on a post in this thread or the previous Best Buy one. If you have a chance to browse through there may be some info in there: https://forums.redflagdeals.com/best-bu ... 9-2312726/
