Frys has HP Pavilion 560-p015hvr VR Ready Gaming Desktop PC with Intel Core i5-6400 Processor,8GB Memory,1TB Hard Drive + 128 SSD M.2 for $498.99 with free shipping after using Monday promo code.

Specs are very much similar to the HP ENVY 750-411 front page deal at $549.99 from Bj's Wholesale which was posted here couple of days ago except this one has a 300W Power supply. But this one has an additonal 128GB SSD and the price is lower than that frontpage deal.

You will need to get the Fry's promo code of course. Just search the forums how to get that.

It has a 6th generation Core i-5 with 8GB RAM and AMD Radeon™ RX 480 graphics card with 4 GB GDDR5.

There is no sales tax as well at least in Texas. It applies the sales tax promotion automatically at check out with no shipping charges.

So I made you guys a quick shitty tour video of this PC, inside and out, to show what everything looks like. You can see what the gpu looks like, the layout, ports, etc. https://youtu.be/O_fsboUYL4g

Be careful, guys. There are a couple cons to this product compared to the BJ's one yesterday:

BJ's Specs (from HP): https://support.hp.com/us-en/prod...c05331548/

Fry's Specs (from HP): https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05325469

Things I noticed:
1) Fry's says it has 128GB m.2 SSD. The HP specs site states it is a 128GB tlc sata ssd. I am inclined to agree with HP, as the motherboard does not have an M.2 slot for an ssd. it has an m.2 key a slot, which is occupied by the WLAN/BT card. and it has spacing on the motherboard for an M.2 slot, but the header was never installed on this particular motherboard. There is another variant of this motherboard (available in some HP Envy models with m.2 ssds) that has that header. they saved the plastic bits with this model.

2) The Fry's PC has a 300w PSU. The BJ's has a 500w 80+ PSU. Could be important to anyone wanting to sell/replace the RX 480 with a GTX 1070 or higher. 300w *might* be sufficient tho. This can boil down to personal preference.

So it seems like you will have to decide if getting a 128gb SATA ssd and $50 cheaper is a better deal to you than paying $50 more to BJs, but getting a 500w PSU, sacrificing the SSD, and having ENVY versus Pavillion (no idea if there is a valuable difference there).

Much better than the config at BJs yesterday for $550 - same specs but without the 128m.2 for $50 more. You can sell the video card for a net of around 300-350 on ebay and use the gpu on the CPU. Nice system for $170 after the GPU sale....

My computer that I built about 6 years ago just died on me. Does it make more sense to buy this or build another? I am looking at building something with similar specs.

Bought the BJs PC yesterday. If I plan to swap the RX 480 for a 1070, the BJ pc seems a better deal. I could not have foreseen Frys having this deal today.

I am not sure that it's worth canceling my order, any opinions?

What makes this deal a good one is the inflated price being offered on the GPU. If you sell the GPU, you have a really nice remaning system for under $200 with an SSD.

The BJs deal was $50 more and did not include the 128 SSD - this is a much better deal by far.
