RE: Xps 8700 graphics card upgrade
I like the MSI gaming series with the twin frozr fans.

EVGA and Asus are also solid cards. I've read some EVGA may not fit the 8700 case due to where they located the power connector.
here's a good site for watching prices.

What is it you are doing that you want this upgrade? What programs and what resolution?
If it's gaming at 1080p (1920x1080) then a GTX 1060 is a solid card. The GTX 1060 performs about the same as the GTX 970. I have an MSI GTX 970 gaming 4G in my non-dell workstation and it is really good.
I you are going to 4K resolution and doing any gaming, then a GTX1060 is not the right card, and perhaps the 8700 is not the right desktop.
