At Dell order by phone and ask for the deal of the day. They always give you a small rebate.

If in doubt; i would say go over to google; and do a search for some reviews; etc. on Dells, etc; if you dont think you can build a system on your own. I know it may sound like a long shot due to the possible countless results you will get from searching; still; its worth it i think to at least take a chance on searching and see what comes up.

It already has a $200 discount on the website and I do not feel safe ordering through phone. Also, should i stay with the MCAfee livesafe it comes with or should I use an alternative?

Well if i go with a custom pc, i would not have any support other than SF. I have noticed too that they use budget components. The Nvidia GeForce 645 is supposed to have 3D Vision but on the dell website, it says it doesn't.

MCAfee livesafe is worth $80 if you buy it. It is OK, especially on an XPS where resources are plentyful.

But I may get a on demand scanner too like Malwarebytes just in case.

1. Should get office with the computer in the config or get office separately? 2. Should I get Office 365 or Office 2013? 3. Why am I still asking questions after marking solved?

1. The Office you get with a system will most likely be a trial if you get one at all.

2. Office 365 is a subscription, Office 2013 has various versions.

Compare Microsoft Office products - Office.com

3. Good question, you can mark it unsolved if you want.
