Dell 2021 Flagship G5 5090 Gaming Desktop Computer 10th Gen Intel Hexa-Core i5-10400F Review

Latest pricing, specs and Dell gaming PC review. Updated October 2021. How many PC games will it run? Is it a good choice for a PC gamer? Should you buy this Dell computer?

For a PC gamer, the most important component in the system is the graphics card. This is the supermodel part that will make or break the setup and is responsible for making all your games look awesome. The more powerful the graphics card the higher, smoother frame rates you will get, the higher resolution you can run at, and the better your games will look. For graphics, this Dell computer has a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650. We rate this NVIDIA GPU as powerful enough to run 568 games at a recommended level.

Next on the list has to be the CPU. The processor at the heart of your gaming desktop is the brains of the outfit, and is vital for making sure that you can get the most out of your graphics card when it comes to gaming performance. The number of cores isn’t vital for games, beyond four cores you get diminishing returns, but you want to make sure what you do have run at a high frequency. The Dell 2021 Flagship G5 5090 Gaming Desktop Computer 10th Gen Intel Hexa-Core i5-10400F has a Intel Core i5-10400F capable of running at 2.9 GHz. That level of power from an Intel chip means it is rated to run 988 of the most popular 1000 PC games at a recommended level.

The level of RAM in a gaming desktop is also important. More system memory allows your PC to churn through large amounts of data quickly, and for today’s massive open gameworlds it’s vital to have that information accessed quickly to speed up game loads. Having too little RAM can mean laggy frames and a poor experience.

This rig comes with 8 GB of system RAM. It’s a bit disappointing and will limit the performance and the number of games this gaming PC will be able to run.

This pre-built gaming PC can run GTA V, Minecraft and Fortnite - some of the the biggest PC games at a recommended level. But unfortunately it doesn't meet the recommended requirements for games like PUBG, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Apex Legends.

Coming in at $869 this rig falls into our mid-range category of gaming PCs under $1000 - a real sweetspot for price able to run 530 of our target games at recommended level.
