I was poking around Best Buy's site and saw this open box deal.. GTX 1070 for $1200 seems like a heck of a deal. Too bad for tax. I was thinking about pulling the trigger but I am also hoping for better deals during BF. Any thoughts?

From a review, "there is room to add (in addition to, not replace) an M.2/NVMe solid state drive."

I don't know what these other guys are whining about. It's not that hard to add an SSD and you get more for less if you're buying on your own.

Why in the world would you need a computer with said specs? You aren't any good at gaming or anything

Much better deal, 256GB ssd, 16GB ram (so true duel channel),100hz ips gsync pannel, and only about $100 difference after BB tax

and based off of the photos the Asus looks like it would run hotter
