That's a pretty negligible point when it comes to something like a pre-built Dell
Yeah, don't plan on much success overclocking a dell. They simply don't give you BIOS options to change...except on a rare machine (XPS) and your overclocking options even on these is a tiny fraction of what is available on a gigabyte or ASUS motherboard.

Read the quote in post #3. I think this is a good deal (prebuilt or homebuilt) - if you want to OC that is.
