Problem is the PSU, if u wanted to put a more powerful GPU then you'd have to upgrade it unless you got something really power efficient

At medium quality at 1080p for "e-sports" titles DOTA2, LoL, Fortnite, etc it is fine for gaming at around 60FPS.

There is a lot to be said about a computer already being assembled for you. I mean, unless you enjoy the build process, it's a pain for most.

I don't know if I keep seeing the same deal, but if I didn't---someone else mentioned that you have to get HP's power supply if you want to upgrade this from 310 watts, and you will need to upgrade that to 400w if you want to run an nvidia 1060 to do windows mixed reality.

Poo-pooing a deal always gets some downvotes, but seriously HP, a 310 watt power supply?! Shaving some nickels and dimes. At least they put it in the specifications though.

This might not be a deal for a geek who is deep in to gaming but for average gamer who don't assemble their own PCs, it would be a great deal. Windows 10 software would cost you another $100 if you built your own. DVD-RW would be another 30 or so? I got one and running Photoshop very smooth, and so as other heavy duty CAD programs. Loving this!!

I don't think there should be more than an hour's labor for anyone to open a case, screw a PSU in, screw a motherboard in, socket a CPU/RAM, plug in a video card, and plug in an SSD. Okay, maybe two if you include installing Windows (which is another expense everyone forgets about).

Either way, this should be cheaper than a custom built PC, given the economy of scale and the fact that they're using inferior components.

I get shit in for my RX 570 all the time. I can't imagine what you can even do with a 550.

I will agree - PSU is always a problem with these systems. They calculate max consumed wattage, add 10W overhead and come up with 250W power supplies for such systems.
That and cooling - barely any openings, most likely single fan. It will be hot.

It may be a little under powered for a current gen "gaming" PC, but it's still not a bad price. Your don't have an equal comparison without throwing in Windows 10 ($100), a Wifi+Bluetooth adapter ($25) and an optical drive ($15). Even if you downgrade the video card from the RX 570 back to the RX 550 ($120 to $95) and drop the SSD (-$35), once you throw in the OS and other parts you'll get a base price closer to $640, not $560 or $570.
