OK that makes sense. I think the last time we posted in the same thread you said building your own pc was a waste of time..

And the hounds were released once they had the scent..

You are correct. Honestly anyone can learn to build your own with enough time and correct teaching, but flat out refusing to learn is different.

@Toothless Well first of all I am not refusing to learn. I just don't see a need for it when my whole life has been prebuilts. In my life time I have had computers from Apple, Gateway, Hp, Packard Bell, and Emachines. They have all served me well and did what I needed for there time.

Sure, they work, however you can always get more life from them and not have a need for a full replacement as much.

@Toothless I guess you have a good point there but I have to say once I get this Dell it will be my last system for quite some time and technically I haven't replaced all that often.

Genuine question: how many people need 16GB? now 8GB I can understand although Windows 10 can fit in 4GB with some space left over.

Actually I would say many, many need more than 8GB. And, a lot of power users who think 16GB is enough could benefit from 32GB if they really multi-task or use demanding applications a lot.

Idle - 1 tab browser is all that's open - 6.5GB used :
1616900271827.png


And now, I've opened up a small spreadsheet single page, no formulae or anything complex at all, a PowerPoint from work - 63 pages with some images and charts, but nothing really fancy, no video or audio nor any animations or effects. I also have a couple of windows explorer windows open (file browsing) snipping tool, and WinRar for looking inside zip files :

1616901347543.png


At this point, 8GB will be swapping. If anything, what I'm doing is a light load for an office worker. For a more advanced business user, well it's not unusual to see them with a dozen spreadsheets and half a dozen PowerPoint or word docs of significant size open, along with java laden productivity web sites. Sometimes 16GB isn't enough.

Hello everybody. Im getting new DELL PC soon my Dad and Stepmom ordered it for me from costco. Even though I just got a hp laptop last summer. I am getting this to replace my aging desktop in my room along with a wireless printer.

That's Tiger Lake on the desktop. I really like AIOs and now that GPUs cost too much to be practical for most people, a setup like that is about the best deal going.

16gb will be a big boost for me considering both my current laptop and outdated desktop had 12gb only.

This tower is currently what I have for a desktop. I have a 22 inch lcd monitor. the processor is core i5. I believe 4 or 5th generation .

First of all let me explain things a little more. I am 43 years old have a very limited income as is I am disabled. My Dad is my rep payee for my checking and savings accounts. I live in a supported apartment. Because of Covid 19 I haven't been able to really get out much and look and this deal that popped up was the best option for what I needed and wanted in my area and thats my story and im sticking too it.
No explanation necessary, man. I'm sure what you've picked out will do what you want it to and hopefully last several good years like the last one did.

I am not a fan of AIO's they are generally pretty unserviceable and tend to suffer from thermal issues
if you want 24/7 reliablity then you want to go with one of the optiplexs

there consumer grade units are Ok but they are only designed to last 3 years I am not saying it will halt and catch fire on day 1096 But I have seen more failures then survivors with the aio's usually poor thermals are the slow killer

Not gonna lie I burst out laughing when I saw the title of this thread

Dude, it's no ones business, personally i just wanted to know what the system was for and why DELL there has to be others. And there are some nasty horror story's that they pull on people too.

Upgrade ability is out the windows for the most part too. But if it has to be a DELL just watch out that they don't change your order when get it and be as clear as possible for example the 2 sticks of ram and not one as it does hurt performance.

If a unit has a AIO and the pump fails after warranty and it will a lot sooner than air cooling, parts to get it back working are possibly going be a issue.

I think your current pc would be fine with a couple of upgrades and would be cheaper, but of course we have to take on account your situation and the possibility of getting support and warranty, you would need a proper shop to handle this.

I don't think it's a bad decision per se going for that AIO given that, looks like a fine machine. I've been working with Dell for years and I personally didn't have any problem, but of course it is in a professional environment, I don't know how good are in the consumer market.

Thank goodness for that at least but you never know when they might add a extra fail point. But yeah i still agree with you AIO upgrade repair path can be a total pain.

AIO can be repaired usually by a tech with owner owning a fat (soon to be emptied )wallet.
upgrading is Difficult
CPU is often BGA
Graphics Card usually MXM
and if its the (often fitted) Touchscreen thats a Screen +Digitiser as they are usually calibrated together.

Sorry to hear this, disabilities are no joke and I'm certainly not judging you.

If you could please just answer my question earlier in the thread about whether you play modern high end games or not, it would help me to help you, because that MX330 definitely won't be able to handle them. I don't want you to get it and then disappointed with it. I know Costco have a generous return policy, but it's still better to get it right first time, if possible.

How about repairs? a power supply might need replacing, or repairing, even for prebuilts.

Im sure there are better options out there for when your primary use is for gaming 1650/1660ti notebooks are surprisingly powerful and would probably cost similar.

AIOs are fully serviceable but use proprietary connectors and parts, so make sure you have DELLs onsite warranty attached to the thing because if your LCD goes out there will be 3 to 4 points of failures because of how the machine is built. LCD cable, LCD, LCD power board and Motherboard.

Ok to answer the questions. The only games I’ve been playing lately are Starcraft 2, overwatch, Warcraft 3 reforged, Diablo 3 and sims 4. So no I don’t really play real demanding games. The system is ordered so I guess I will just have to wait and see how it turns out.
