While there are certainly DIY options for gaming computers, a lot of people simply want to plug and play. Dell is the brand that offers some of the best plug and play, pre-built gaming PCs. One particular model that you might want to look into is the Dell Inspiron 5680. It is a meticulously designed black tower with a neat, blue bezel LED lighting scheme and (optional) clear window side panel that allows users to view inside of the tower.
You can easily enhance your game because upgrades are a simple process. All you have to do is loosen the two thumbscrews located on the back of the tower, and then remove the side panel. There, you’ll be able to access the internals of the computer and swap hardware out or add new components.
It’s capable of staying cool during intense gaming sessions due to optimal airflow. There is a maximum system fan speed of up to 4500-RPM and four thermal mode options that you can set yourself if you need to in the Alienware Command Center. Its intelligent thermal design also ensures that it always operates quietly. The optimized graphics solutions combined with intelligent component placement play a role in the efficient noise control.
Dell Inspiron 5680 Ports and Slots
You get all of the ports and slots you need arranged conveniently all around the tower. The Dell Inspiron 5680 comes with an audio combo jack, two SuperSpeed USB 3.1 Generation 1 Type A ports, multiple USB 2.0 Type-A ports, HDMI, DisplayPort out, 1000 Gigabit Ethernet Port, and others. On the rear side, there is a center / subwoofer LFE surround port. Additionally, there is an L/R surround port on the side and one on the front.
The high-powered processing options include quad-core and hex-core. Choose as much processing power as you need. The CPU depends on the configuration. However, all options are 9th Generation Intel Core, ranging from i3 to i7. The Dell Inspiron 5680 comes with some excellent NVIDIA GeForce GTX and RTX graphics options to suit your gaming needs, whether you want to play mainstream titles, VR games, or anything else.
The memory configuration starts out at 8GB DDR4 (2400-MHz) or 16GB, but can go all the way up to 32GB or even 64GB if you want to purchase additional memory separately. As for the storage solutions, choose 1TB SATA (7200 RPM) with the base configuration or opt for an M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD (up to 1TB).
