According to user benchmarks vs RX 480:

1050: RX 480 86% better
1050 Ti: RX 480 63% better
1060 3gb: 1060 6% better*
1060 6gb: 1060 6gb 13% better

*Though the 1060 3gb performs slightly better than the rx480, I prefer the 480 since it has 4gb.

Not bad considering rx480s cost $400 right now.

I don't think so its always been that way if you want to be slick as possible. The fact acer is offering this and walmart somehow is selling it at this price would indicate gpu prices. It matches the trend across the board except for laptop gpus.

The only reason acer and other mfgs can build this and still have walmart sell for a few bucks margin (or break even to a loss) is because they can order a huge batch of gpus at a really good price with no warranty (oem means the pc builder warranties everything in the box and eats any cost from warranty service).

Again I think this just means in a month or two we will see the '$400' gpu come up on sale for less. Mfgs want to sell their stock put before parts depreciate and they take bigger losses. A lot of the time they will credit the seller (bestbuy walmart etc) with some type of instant rebate and the seller passes that on to you.

Its true for mfgs like acer, dell, hp etc.

If you are thinking when you buy a oem bare drive from newegg and it comes with a warranty from the mfg thats different. Newegg and others note oem bare but show the warranty length in the description. Newegg is a authorised reseller. If you buy oem and build pcs to sell people their receipt of their pc purchase from you will not be honored if the buyer tries to make a claim with Western digital. They will refer you to the seller for warranty service. Same as if you bought this and tried to call the hd mfg directly instead of going through acer.

If you personally bought 100k western digital hard drives from western digital and had to make warranty claims on 2k of them you would be flagged as a builder (if you were not already) and quickly be denied warranty service after x you tried to claim. They would start discussing with you options to buy more expensive drives with full warranty's. The extra cost will exceed just paying the price pf 2+k hard drives.

I have heard stories from people buying parts from newegg and building. The mfgs start asking questions when you make so many claims on so many of their products that's greater than the average consumer. To get around it they normally sign the end user up for a account and make them buy the parts and they jist build it. Warranty claims could be done by the 'friend' bit the receipts are from the actual end user.

This is all my understanding after speaking with dell, hp, amd, and western digital reps over the years. To lesser extent I have learned this from various general pc repair shops and companies over the years.

Once in awhile someone younger or just starting to build custom pc's will state oem have full warranty's and there is no reason to buy retail. They don't realize they are not buying like a true oem at huge qtys and have not run into issues with making a massive amount of claims within 1 year that sets off red flags.

How is the build quality of this Acer desktop? I've had one of their laptops some years back and it all of a sudden died on me.

A 480 destroys a 1050.

The processor and graphics card alone are $580.
i5 7400 $180 + rx480 4gb $400 = $580
