This is the ideal budget gaming desktop. The XPS SE (Special Edition) is highly recommended over the years as an excellent pre-made computer. The 9700 is very very fast at everything without needing to be overclocked or get hot or noisy. The 1660ti is an excellent new GPU with turing NVENC for streaming and is again low power enough to not be too noisy. Coming with a 256GB SSD and 2TB HDD is MORE than enough for anyone starting off and is even most super enthusiasts. 8GB RAM is enough for most or all games for many years, but if it comes with an extra 8GB of memory then that is really nice for an enthusiast. I would recommend this for any child, student, and adult who wants a good value "EVERYTHING" gaming computer with ZERO hassle or work. Just buy it and install steam and you're playing games at 1080p top quality for many many years into the future.

I see the GPU 1660 Ti specs requires a 500W PSU, but this one is only 480W. Do you think it's enough to handle this setup?

Thanks
it will be more than enough

I ordered one and it seems to come with 16GB DDR4.
Did you accidentally select to pay extra $200 for 16GB DDR4?

Not accidentally, I select 16G option. I'm not sure if OP says the 8G additional is true, but I want 16G

Ebates is really weird !!! Two days ago I have ordered a monitor, the cash back 10% was calculated on the after taxes amount, but with this Dell PC, the cash back is on the sub-total :-(
So it becomes like 10% as yesterday and not 12%

I just start ebates 2 days ago, it looks interesting, hope they will really pay. Does it?

damn ebates down to 2% now.
precisely. boo. 12% to 2% that means if they did it in a similar rhythm as last time,. it'll hit 8% in 3 - 5 days and stay there for awhile . the sale price will likely be over before it even hits 10% again. although, speculation: some 'big' day is coming on the 28th I read somewhere with the ebates. lol

Do we need to worry memory compatibility issue with third party memory vendor when upgrading the DDR4 memory from 8GB to 16GB? Is it a matter of simply getting any brand DDR4 at 2666Mhz and installing it?

No, just buy 2 x DDR4 at 2666Mhz and plug them in. Almost known brand names are good: G.Skil, Corsair, Kingston ...

Yes, I did a stupid mistake. I placed the order in a hurry as I was busy at that moment, didn't have time to "think" about the configuration option. Since a while I don't follow PC hardware price any more. I remember 2 years a go I bought 2 x 8G DDR3 at 95$, after that RAM price has increased as crazy so I forgot this was a new DDR4 RAM it's less expensive

I have requested to cancel the order, they offer me 50$ but it's still cost more than 150$, so I cancel it.

The ebates jumps back to 10$ today.

Thank you for reminding that. I'm not sure if I can get another 10% signup or not but I feel stupid to pay more for an easy option
