Normally you'd have to settle for a standard GTX 1660 or even a GTX 1650 graphics card at this budget range, so this is a really nice bonus. Aside from the 1660Ti you'll be getting a fairly standard (but decently quick) 9th Gen Intel Core i5-9400, 8GB of DDR4 RAM, a 256GB M.2 PCIe SSD, and a spacious 1TB hard drive.
These are some great, solid specs for anyone who's just dipping their toes into the world of enthusiast gaming for the first time and also a good starting point for any upgrades you may want to do in the future.
A really good option here is to take that $100 saving and invest it into an upgraded component, which is possible thanks to Dell's fantastic customize before you buy options. We'd recommend tailoring this to whatever games you're intending to play.
Going to be playing Minecraft with tons of mod packs? That's really CPU heavy so you could opt for an upgrade to an i5 9600K for $100. Playing a graphically intense game or want to future proof your rig for Ray Tracing? You could upgrade to an RTX 2060 for just $120, which will also give a nice FPS boost elsewhere. Upgrading to a 512GB SSD is also possible for just $50, which is an upgrade that's always good to have, no matter what games you're playing.
