Bottom Line

The Dell XPS x8900-8756BLK offers excellent performance and the Skylake processor and massive amount of RAM will handle any of the current games on the market. But the 460 Watt PSU will have to be upgraded in order to run more powerful graphics cards.


The Dell XPS x8900-8756BLK is a bestselling gaming desktop that has been praised for its massive 32GB of RAM, its sleek design and for its M.2 solid state drive. But the 460 Watt power supply limits the Dell XPS x8900-8756BLK to a single graphics card and prevents it from running more powerful cards. The 6th generation Intel processor offers superior performance for those who take their gaming seriously. There is no shortage of RAM as the Dell XPS x8900-8756BLK boasts an impressive 32GB of RAM, giving users more than enough memory for current gaming titles.

    Despite that, the XPS is sold at mass-market pricing. Our review unit rung up at $1,200, and the MSRP can be knocked down to $1,000 with a special Rift bundle that’s valid until June. That sounds like a steal. Does the XPS 8900 get away with it, or is its supposed value a trap that snags unsuspecting gamers?
