Review the Quick Specs. If everything looks good, add it to your cart and finish the order.

If you need to make any changes to the configuration, like add more storage, a shorter warranty period, or video adapters, click on "Customize"

Note: Most desktops and laptops will be used with two external monitors. The configurations do NOT include video adapters by default. Make sure you order enough DP-to-DVI adapters for use with monitors.

Note: Every desktop comes with a keyboard and mouse. If you don't need to order new ones, you can click the "Remove" button next to each. The price will drop a bit as a result.
