Dell has given the G5 gaming tower an update that gives the chic gaming tower even more power – at least, if you want, the Dell gaming desktop PC is still available with minimal equipment for a relatively low price now on BestBuy.
Dell does not change the case of the G5 5000 Dell gaming computers, which does not necessarily have to be a disadvantage, because the gaming tower still looks pretty, the side panel can be unlocked with just two screws on the back so that you have direct access to the processor, the graphics card, RAM and hard drives are preserved in case you want to upgrade or repair.
As usual with gaming computers, there is also RGB lighting: The stripe on the front is quite subtle, but Dell also offers an optional, transparent side panel, which allows you to admire the optionally illuminated interior. The most important upgrades can be found inside because the G5 5000 is equipped with Intel Comet Lake-S processors and Nvidia GeForce RTX Super graphics cards.
Dell leaves the customer spoiled for choice. The processors range from the Intel Core i3-10100 with four cores at clock frequencies of up to 4.2 GHz to the Intel Core i9-10900K with eight cores and a Turbo Boost of up to 5 GHz. There is a similarly large selection of graphics cards, but while the predecessor was still limited to a GeForce RTX 2060 with 6 GB GDDR6 graphics memory, there is now even a GeForce RTX 2070 Super with 8 GB GDDR6 available. An AMD option in the form of the Radeon RX 5600 with 6 GB GDDR6 is also available.
There are also two DIMM slots for 8 to 64 GB DDR4-2666 main memory as well as various SSDs and hard drives with which the four available slots can be filled because Dell has installed an M.2 slot for SSDs as well as a 3, 5 inch and two 2.5 inch slots for SATA hard drives or SSDs. Dell does not use Thunderbolt for the connections, but there is a total of ten USB ports, Ethernet, AUX, and a selection of DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPorts, which depend on the selected graphics card.
