Bottom Line

The Dell XPS 8900-3131BLK offers great specs for power users, but the supplied graphics card will not offer the necessary performance for hardcore gamers.


The Dell XPS 8900-3131BLK is a bestselling all-purpose desktop computer that has been praised for its powerful Intel Skylake processor, its ample storage space, its decent amount of RAM and for its NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics card. But the GTX 745 graphics card is not designed for hardcore gaming and is designed more for the power user who needs that little bit of extra power for photo and video editing. You can upgrade the graphics card, but for the extra money that you will need to spend, you might as well look at a more powerful gaming PC.
