Currently, I'm looking at buying a Dell desktop being sold on Black Friday.
The deal is $700 for:
Dell XPS 8500
3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7-3770 processor (3.40 GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0 up to 3.90 GHz)
Windows 8, 64-bit
8 GB Dual Channel DDR3
16x CD/DVD burner
1 TB 7200 RPM SATA Hard Drive 6.0 Gb/s
AMD Radeon HD 7570 1 GB GDDR5
1 Year Warranty
Can I build a computer with better specs for less?
My skills are decent with building stuff. I work on my car quite a bit (same screen name for every forum I'm on) so I feel comfortable with what I know how to do, but I don't know how to solder well. Will this make a difference?
