Guessing it's a generic 450-550w.

Not really a lot going for this system after you add it all up.

The 1660Ti has a TDP of 120w, so 310w is way under recommended spec.

If that's true, all the more reason to avoid this one.
http://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/S...asheet.pdf

Lenovo datasheet. Power supply is pushing it but 65w i5-9400f and 1660ti 120w is 185w out of 310w. I know you have other stuff but you have a 125w buffer for memory, ssd, etc.

Also power supply is 92% efficient which is really good considering most people probably buy bronze 80 plus power supplies.

No way you can build this system from scratch for $699. If you're in the market and take into account CB, this is a no brainer just because of the GTX 1660 TI.

Please be careful -- 15 day refund/return, while 30 days is shipping time frame, you have to request within 15 days, which ***effectively makes return window 15 days.

So, no, it does not overlap with Black Friday!

Is this better value than a self-built Ryzen build ATM? Easy to add a storage drive and upgrade in the future?

The processor and graphics card are $200 and ~$260 respectively, so you're not going to build a Ryzen system to match this for less.

With that said, the power supply uses a Lenovo connector, so you'll need an adapter if you want to upgrade to a higher watt power supply.

There's also not a lot of expansion in the way of PCIe and I'm fairly sure there's no overclocking capabilities, so this is probably a build you'll just buy and use until it's time to get a new computer.
