Anyone think this is worth it for the price?

For some reasons, some of HP Desktop models sold by Best Buy have 180W power supply.
I can't see why they are doing that.

The HP desktop I bought in 2010 came with 250W power supply.

Please see it in HP web site:
https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c06469139

From HP, "180 W Gold efficiency power supply"

Is this a problem if I am keeping it stock and just adding 1 or 2 SSD hard drives?

It's definitely worth it if you are a power user and need an i7 for productivity / video work / application development.

Everyone must be busy looking at the laptop deals, so no one cares about desktops. If I am not mistaken, this is the least expensive pre-built 8th-gen i7 desktop I have seen. The only one which was a better value was a gaming configuration from Walmart (but it was also almost twice the price).

Anyone know if the power supply could handle a dedicated graphics card? I don't know which card I'll be buying but I want a PC for myself and son to use to play games on. This seems like a decent deal.

Even if you had to upgrade the PS I'd say this is a good deal

You'll have to upgrade to a 350 watt power supply.

Don't think you will be able to upgrade much. I saw this in store and it's a mini tower doesn't seem there is much room for upgrade.

Thanks for the reply. I'm now starting my journey of building something. Been over 5 years since I've built anything. This should be fun.

I bought the computer and opened it up. HP uses a proprietary motherboard and power supply. The power supply has a unique 7 pin design that nobody else uses. So, basically, you can't upgrade the power supply which means there's not enough power for a dedicated GPU.
