Hi Josh,
I cannot recommend you a specific models and manufacturers of desktop to support SGX.
The below two CPU supprots SGX.
Intel® 6th Generation Core™ i5-6400 (6M Cache, up to 3.30 GHz)
Intel® 6th Generation Core™ i7-6700 (8M Cache, up to 4.00 GHz)

Please check with OEM to provide BIOS to support SGX and also visit you platform manufacturer's website and see if they have a BIOS update for this platform.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Josh,

          "Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX) is introduced with Skylake processors. However, it must be noted that at the system-level it relies on OEM/ODM enabling as well as software that takes advantage of it." This means, you not only need a CPU that supports SGX, but also a platform/BIOS that has been SGX enabled.

thanks your answer, Surenthar Selvaraj. I  have studied in SGX for some time, and from this forum , I know if I want to use the SGX, the cpu and the bios should both support it. now i have another question: i find that the Dell Vostro 3650(http://www.dell.com/support/home/cn/zh/cnbsd1/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=VN94Y) has the cpu G4400 supports sgx, does its bios also sopport sgx? if i buy it ,can i use the sgx directly? whether any desktop whose cpu supports sgx  can be use the sgx directly (it means its bios also supports sgx)? i  am worried  that if i buy it, and find that i can not use  the sgx ,that will be too bad.
