    poor value for money in my opinion, you could be getting a system with a 1050 ti around that price point
    Obligatory PCpartpicker list for comparison:

    Not a bad price if that's the spec you want. But like andreas0013, for a gaming PC I would much rather get something with a 1050ti at this price point;

    I’m not sure why PC deals are always judged by their gaming chops. Is anyone considering a low end Inspiron expecting a competent gaming machine? What’s more likely is that they want a decent all round unit, which they can plug in and play, with dell on the end of the phone if something goes wrong.

    Not a bad deal for a basic home PC but this will not be good for gaming. You'd need a to 1050 minimum, IMO, for a half decent experience.

    First line of the description - "Gaming pc, ticks all the boxes."

    It doesn't. GPU is way too underpowered for even a basic gaming rig.

    If you want that you could get away with integrated graphics. No need to incur an extra £70 cost when it doesn't help 2D applications or video playback, but it doesn't particularly help game playing either.

    Because people for same price can get better. Just because it's been reduced doesn't mean it is worth the reduced price.
    Cold; GPU is garbage for the price.

    Spend £100 more will get you the same spec, but with a vastly more capable 1060 6GB / 970 4GB.
    Moreover the way Dell builds their machines, its PSU will need replacing if you ever upgrade the GPU. (and the motherboard will be proprietary crap too)

    If you're satisfied with GT 1030 level of graphics performance, then get a Ryzen 2400G APU based system instead.
    Newer, better CPU, comparable GPU, better upgrade potential, and significantly cheaper total system cost.
