Looking at an xps 8700. Is there a better deal out there for what you would get, current price is $700 out the door! Basically what I am asking is, will 700$ get me more of a computer then this setup?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6883265534 Is about as good as you'll get as far as looking Newegg.

So then the xps 8700 is the best deal that you can find?

No, because that Lenovo comes with a better video card.

So your saying an i5 with a better video card is worth more then an i7 with less of a video card? The 8700 also has a higher rated psu to support future expansion...Just thinking outloud.

The $700 configuration you chose only comes with a i5-4430. But otherwise yes, for gaming, a better GPU is far more better than a better CPU. A Core i3 with a GTX 760 will still get 60FPS on maximum settings at 1080p for most games, whereas if you gotten a Core i7 with a GTX 650, you'll start to fall off on more demanding games. And the XPS comes with a 7570, which is worse than the bottom most tier people will recommend with video cards.

Though I didn't see the power supply and 280W is cutting it close if you put in higher end parts.
