New Dell Coupon Code: Extra 10% Off Dell XPS Gaming PC with Intel Alder Lake CPU, DDR5 RAM and RTX 30 Series Video Card

Update: There is now a 10% discount code: “SAVE10” Where “SMITAW which works on these new Dell XPS Alder Lake RTX 30 Series Gaming PCs. This extra discount definitely won’t last (either the code will expire or that particular configuration will soon be excluded).

Previously, the only PC option from Dell that offered an Intel Alder Lake processor, DDR5 RAM, and RTX 30-series video cards came in the form of the Alienware Aurora R13 gaming PC. At a cost of around $2900 for an Intel Core i7 RTX 3080 combo, it’s out of reach for many people. Now, Dell has extended similar build options to its new Dell XPS 2021-2022 gaming PC.

I recently built a new Intel PC for myself and was flabbergasted at the cost of some of these new components. Right now, Intel and NVIDIA hold the titles for the best gaming CPUs and GPUs on the market, but sourcing their products can be a nightmare. We should all know by now how hard it is to get hold of an RTX 30 series video card at retail price. It is almost impossible to connect. On eBay, an RTX 3080 video sells for over $1600 (if you forgot, the MSRP for an RTX 3080 starts at $700). Your best bet would be to walk into a local Best Buy and hope your trip wasn’t just a waste of time.

It’s not even the end. Intel has released its new 12th Gen Alder Lake processors, and they have proven to perform better than the AMD Ryzen 7 and 9. The processors are readily available, but the costs for Z690 motherboards and DDR5 RAM are utterly ridiculous . DDR5, in particular, cannot be found anywhere other than on eBay. 32 GB of RAM costs there…and I’m not kidding…$900. The best option is to stick with DDR4, but there aren’t as many DDR4 cards available, and you’ll still have to pay upwards of $200. The final critical point is cooler compatibility. The vast majority of existing air-cooled and AIO coolers do not come with an LGA 1700 mount. You will need to email your cooler manufacturer and request one. For many of these manufacturers there is a shortage of LGA 1700 mounting brackets, and again this will delay your build. Time is money.

Compared to the previous Dell XPS chassis, this one is bulkier (27L vs 19L) and offers more space for CPU and GPU area for much better airflow. This is important because the new Alder Lake processors can heat up under intense loads. Looking ahead, the new Dell XPS features a Z690 motherboard that supports the latest 12th Gen Intel Alder Lake processors, DDR5 RAM and RTX 30 series video cards on PCI-E 5.0. This proves that DDR5 RAM actually exists in nature. Your video card options are also excellent; pick your choice of video card from the RTX 30 series, from the RTX 3060 Ti all the way up to the RTX 3090, just like with the Alienware Aurora R13. Perhaps the best news? According to Dell’s website, these configurations ship in late January.

Normally, there would be naysayers claiming you could build the same quality rig for a cheaper price. Provided you know how to find deals, that’s certainly not far from the truth. But we live in a completely different world where supply and demand have killed price sensitivity. And we also have to consider the weather. Technology is changing so rapidly that the value of our PC components is depreciating at a frightening rate. Waiting a few months for a current-gen part isn’t necessarily the best option, especially if those “few months” can stretch to several months. Under these circumstances, Dell offers an incredibly powerful and sleek gaming rig with all the unobtainable components you could hope for, at a reasonable price and in a reasonable time. The only other sensible option is to go with AMD.
