I was looking into buying the dell XPS 8500 core i7 processor with an AMD Radeon HD 7570 1GB graphics card and 8gb of ram. Is this desktop suitable for running more intensive games like Planetside 2 or things like Call Duty? Thanks!
Is the I7 good for gaming yes but s it worth it, no especially when looking at the overall build. I would not bother with a big box OEM computer for gaming in most cases you or somone who knows how can build a better gaming computer with out the Dell trash hardware.
As for the computer itself lets start with the I7. First the I7 is overkill for gaming you don't need it an I5 would be more than enough. With the I7 you are paying for extra features (hyperthreading and cache) features that games don't make use of. The video card is crap and is low end, it is not a gaming card. Like I said you are better off doing a custom builld.
