Maybe replace the current HD with an SSD is a cheaper option?

Ya can be easily done but by the time you invest the time and money into the ssd it takes the shine off the sytem imo. I actually ordered a desktop like this last week that had a 128gb ssd + 1tb drive, 12gb ram and the i5 8400 for $656 after unidays discount but ebates was only 2% then.

Very good deal, but I also ordered last week. I guess if I took this I would end up with 16 gigs of ram instead of 12 gigs and still save $20 but don't feel like going through the hassle of returning.

If anyone has coupons for dell, id appreciate them being PM'd to me. I'm gonna get this sku and drop a 1060 i had bought earlier into it, since it looks like it should work(they sell the same platform with a 1060gtx already installed)

It has a 240W (or smaller) power supply.
You need to buy a PSU (~$50? 500W).

update: 290W

Yeah but the highest end option for the model offers a 1060gtx, so I'm betting they're all using the same PSU. Managing 2 different PSUs for the same model would be too costly. 290watts is close to the minimum, but it should still be sufficient.

Is it 1x8gb or 2x4gb RAM?
I can't answer but if it were 2 x 4 gb to would be running in dual channel mode, a feature that Dell would be touting... Just a theory though.

I recently ran across a system that had 12 gb of RAM. An 8gb stick and 4 gb that was soldiered to the motherboard... System integrators love to cut corners and save a penny...

I misread it. It's supposed to be 290W.
Anyway, I wouldn't trust a 290w psu for supporting a GTX 1060 6GB and an 8th gen i5. The efficiency is <80% so ~230W MAX continuous power.
