If you don't have a desire to shell out the money for a high-end gaming desktop from Alienware, Dell's Inspiron Gaming Desktop is a solid alternative with a more modest starting price. For CES 2018, Dell is sweetening the deal with a series of updates to the desktop PC, including new processors and more.
The Inspiron Gaming Desktop 5680 has been updated to include Intel's latest eighth-generation Core processors, with options ranging from the low-end Core i3 up to the top-end Core i7. As far as graphics are concerned, the desktop can also be equipped with NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1050, 1060, or 1070 graphics. RAM options include up to 8GB or 16GB, but the machine supports up to 64GB total. You can also add up to 256GB of M.2 SATA SSD storage and 2TB of standard hard drive storage.
All of that is packed into a unique case that features a slight bit of aggressive styling on one side with a blue glow. Dell is also billing the desktop's upgradeability as a selling point, but you may be a bit limited by the 460-watt power supply that comes in the box.
The new Inspiron Gaming Desktop 5680 is available starting today from Dell, starting at $749 and going up from there.
