So the question is:

Where is that blue port?

On the video card?

Or on the motherboard back panel?

I'll try to upload a picture of the case.

I am thinking between the Dell XPS 8300, Zoostorm or this pre-built ebay one

Galaxy Z68 Motherboard I7 2600K Gaming Computer PC 1tb 16gb DDR3 GTX 550 TI 1gb | eBay

The e-bay seller has very good positive feedback (5000), whilst only 10 voted as bad.

I basically just want a Gaming-PC that can handle games well.

Your brand new PC with a 2500K processor fails to "handle games well"??

If it is defective, return it.

If not, why not evaluate its gaming performance?

The Dell has issues that were beaten to death in your other thread.

The Zoostorm is dubious for reasons I already mentioned.

Buying a PC from Ebay based on "feedback" is a questionable proposition, particularly when you apparently don't know anything about the performance of your current PC.

If those reasons are not being able to upgrade it (I do not really need to upgrade it) the current specs are fine for me (the only thing I will upgrade is the Hard Drive - SSD).

Your desires change from day to day.

Two weeks ago, upgrading was at the top of your list---now it's another story.

Three weeks ago, you had to have 32 GB of RAM. Today, 8 GB is enough.

You are going to have great difficulty overclocking that Dell, but maybe today you no longer care about overclocking either.

And for all you know, the existing PC is a better buy than the Dell. But you'll never know if you don't start it up.

I didn't have to have 32GB Ram (it was just for Virtual Machining), but I could leave that out.

I don't want to overclock either due to overheating and I don't want to risk breaking any components.

I don't like the sound of Novatech the reviews don't look very good along with my experience of it.

The only upgrade I would like is an SSD.

After this setup, if gaming still fails then I will have to upgrade it (but I doubt it).

Well, if you don't like the sound of the Novatech reviews, why did you order it? You spent weeks deciding.

You have yet to establish that the Novatech doesn't perform well.

All you have established is that you can't get it running.

What is odd is that you are more interested in buying something else than investigating what you now have.

Well the reason for not sticking to the iRush Pro is that my Parents have got annoyed that it didn't work, and don't want to repair or replace a part using Novatech's support, they'd rather refund and get another one.

Plus just from the back, something is loose and inside the case when it's meant to be outside the case (the other 5 clips were outside, while the top one was inside.

I think it would be easier if I stuck with the Dell, I think those specs are good enough for games, plus I haven't got long until christmas comes up, so I have to be as quick as possible.

What makes you or your parents think it doesn't work?

Sorry for repeating myself.

PCs are not quite like plugging in a new electric razor.

If you are unwilling to even investigate, try, or open a case, I wonder what you will do when your new SSD arrives?
