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.
A decent 500W PSU may be OK. (I7-10700, 65W. RTX 2070 Super, 215W. nVida recommends a 650W PSU, but that's with an I9-10900K, which is rated at 125W.) Just curious: have you ever run a stress test on the CPU and GPU simultaneously? (Artificial; may never happen in practice.)
Nope. Just run work through it.

Holy Stone produces dozens of low-cost drone models aimed at consumers. We look at the HS710 and HS175D to see if they stack up to other sub-250g offerings. Are these secretly great or more like toys?
It's small, light, cheap and extremely wide but is it any good?
