Dell announced the new G5 Desktop, an upgradeable gaming desktop with a wide range of configurations. The desktop is VR-capable and able to run the latest titles, assuming that you select the proper configuration.
The Dell G5 Desktop will be available on August 19, 2019 and starts at $629, though that price can vary greatly depending on the internals you select.
Dell highlights that the G5 Desktop is for both entry-level and mainstream gamers due to its wide range of configurations. You can select from a range of processors between a relatively weak 9th generation Intel Core i3 processor or a 9th generation Intel Core i9 processor with eight cores. There are also options for a GPU from AMD and NVIDIA. On the AMD side, you can pick up an AMD Radeon RX560X with 4GB of GDDR5 RAM. The NVIDIA options include:
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 TI with 4GB of GDDR5 RAM
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 with 6GB of GDDR6 RAM
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 with 8GB of GDDR6 RAM
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 with 8GB of GDDR6 RAM
The desktop comes with either a 45W or 95W fan to keep the system cool and comes in a relatively compact case. It has Killer Gigabit Ethernet and Killer Wireless to ensure that a fast internet connection is an option.
Regardless of the configuration that you selects, you can opt to upgrade the G5 at a later date. Loosening the thumbscrews on the back of the system allows users to upgrade their CPU, GPU, memory, and hard drives. The system also has space for an additional 3.5-inch bay and two 2.5-inch bays. There is also an M.2 slot for an additional SSD.
This desktop is upgradeable and has a large set of configurations ranging from modest power to top-of-the-line performance.
