Hello, welcome to Newegg!
Can I help you find a gaming computer?
Minimal gaming but like the performance and specs of one. $1000, for a new or refurbished, upgradable.

Spencer J.
Ok
My Nvidia 660 died
Spencer J.
sorry to hear that
I recommend this desktop
Room for upgrades or should I go for a full tower, 1350max . Dell options?
Spencer J.
Full tower may be better, although this one still supports full size video card, and additional storage.
give me full toweroption
no monitor
Looks good any Dells or should I not limit myself? Is this capable of possible future component upgrades?
Spencer J.
i do like Dell myself, the problem here is the ones we do have available have much lower end video cards. And with this system, pretty much anything in it can be upgraded easily.
Video cards, I'm used to upgrading, as long as they can be replaced, any further options, without them being considered. I will always consider future upgrades.
to all components
Spencer J.
Alright, in that case I recommend looking at the XPS 8700 here
like I said it has a lower end video card, which can be upgraded yourself, the rest of the specs are pretty good
now we are close, any options a few more $, or is this my best bet?
Spencer J.
this one is close, basically just has mroe RAM and windows 7 instead of windows 10
I can replace, or my Pooter Man can, all components, even swapping out and retaining my SSD info as is.
Spencer J.
right :-)
thanks nighty nite!
oops wrongbuttons
Spencer J.
No problem
So is this my final answer? I just ordered a Dell Optiplex 780 Tower, Core 2 Duo 3.0Ghz, 8GB RAM, 1 TB (1000GB), DVDRW, ATI HD R7 240 2GB RAM (HDMI, DVI, VGA) Windows 7, Dual Monitor Support - 1 Year Warranty I am looking at returning it for something like this.
Still here?
Spencer J.
yes, sorry.
had to get another drink anyway!
Spencer J.
the XPS is quite a bit better, full size desktop, with much higher upgrade capabilities. For a good, upgradeable system this is a very good choice.
Ok, this one looks like the one. Thanks! UT Tennesse?
Spencer J.
you're welcome. :-)

Close...tell Newegg you made a sell.
And to all a good night!
Spencer J.
thanks, and have a great night!
