Re: PSU Rating...

That does look good

That particular 8950's PSU is rated at 460w (Bronze) which might limit hardware upgrades. You may wish to go for 750w, or higher... makes it a bit more 'future-proof'.

I bought a Dell XPS 8950-7129 last September to use for photo editing (Costco $1400 on sale). It has the 750w PSU. The transition from my old self-build to the 8950 was hassle free. Runs great. No problems, so far. Highly recommended.

I have the 8940, i7 10700, 2070 super, 128gb of ram, 3 ssd and a spinny drive.  I also added the Noctua cooling cpu cooler and fans and it's silent and fast.  No issues at all. 500w PSU works fine.
