was hoping someone wouldn't mind helping me decide if this is a good deal... I reserved the below OPEN-BOX computer at Microcenter Dallas for $324...not sure if there is availability anywhere else..
PowerSpec G154 Desktop Computer
Intel Core i5+ 8400 Processor 2.8GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti 4GB GDDR5
16GB Intel Optane Memory
1TB 7,200RPM Hard Drive
Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
ASUS 24x DVDRW Drive
the CPU + GPU alone seem to make it a pretty good deal to me...
I would likely transplant everything to my own, nicer case and drop in 16GB RAM and a SSD...
this would be replacing an Ivy Bridge i5 setup as "pc #2" in our house and kind of an "all-arounder" - homework, light video/photo editing, a little gaming here and there. nothing too extreme but i appreciate a nice machine with a little oomph when needed...
was planning a cheapish Ryzen build first but then came upon this...
apprecaite any feedback!
