Dell announces new Inspiron Gaming Desktop with a budget price to match

Dell may already have its hat in the gaming ring with its Alienware line, but its latest desktop machine is going squarely for the more budget-conscious crowd. Revealed at Computex 2017, Dell has announced its new Inspiron Gaming Desktop, with prices starting at $600.

While that starting price is pretty enticing, it's more than likely you'll want to throw in some upgrades if you want to do any serious gaming — and that means shelling out a little more dough. The starting models come equipped with AMD's A10 or A12 APUs, but those can be upgraded to AMD Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 chips. The machine can also be packed with up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics or up to AMD's Radeon RX 580.

Other options include up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM and a boggling array of storage options ranging from a simple 500GB hard drive up to a 256GB M.2 SSD with 2TB hard drive combo. All of this is packed in a black case with blue accents, including a glowing Dell logo. While not as attention-grabbing as some of the more expensive gaming rigs out there, the Inspiron Gaming Desktop does include an eye-catching blue glow beneath its exterior vents.

The Inspiron Gaming Desktop is expected to be available soon starting at $600. An option with a clear window panel will also be available at a later date, Dell says.
