I got my XPS 8930 SE last year at around $1300 (before factoring 12% ebates). It is with 8GB DDR4 and RX580 8GB and other specs are the same as this one.

However, the RX580 was capped at 110W and I could only overclock it to 147W. Should have done some research before I bought it.

Hope this one performs better since GTX 1060 6GB does not require that much power. But I personally would not buy from Dell next time unless they change their strategy.

$1500 pc with a 1060, I think most people would be right that you can do much better than this.

I think this one is probably superior to the one that you listed. GTX 1070 8 GB vs 1060 6GB, also 2TB vs 1TB. Sure there isn't any ebates with Microsoft Store, but for an extra ~80 dollars (1472 on your listed deal vs 1549 on the deal I posted), that is easily worth at least the graphics card upgrade.

Now I don't believe the deal I posted is that hot in the first place, hence I didn't really bother posting it. Don't want to get shamed on not posting great deals, since this is a hot forum.

Also, I'm sure people with lots of patience can probably find individual parts that will beat your deal by a significant amount, assuming they get all the parts in different separate deals.
