I picked up the last one in my area according to Brickseek (as the store is showing OOS now). It was in the back, so they had to get it out of one of the locked bins.

Considering I played that on a 10 year old pc, this one will be more than fine.

That's why this is labeled a YMMV deal. But as it is I've found stores listed showing 2-3 in stock (one in Maine for example) for this price by doing searches on BS in other areas. It just depends on if there's any deal hunters in your particular area.

Yes. You could try ordering from Walmart dot com and then try for a return and re-buy in store. The problem with that is that they could deny it.

"...next price drop this Thursday to $249..."? Do you have some way to know when a price drop will be happening? Please let me know if you do, as it would be very helpful to me in the future ☺️

How do you know the price is set to drop Thursday? Walmart employee? Because even when I stalked Kmart and Sears clearance I knew that most stores by me dropped stuff mid month. I didn't know an EXACT date but I had a general idea.

If so I'll probably keep mine sealed and stalk BS like a hawk and try for the ol' return/re-buy on Thursday if the price does drop.Wink As it is I kind of want to get it off my debit card and onto my credit card, so I'll at least get some reward points for the purchase on TOP of the cheaper price. The thing I've noticed with Walmart is, unlike Target, once a store is OOS of an item the clearance prices don't drop any further usually. So I'm not too hopeful for a drop on Thursday at any of my local stores.

Questionable equipment. Got it and took it back.
Son thought would need storage, memory, maybe cooling boost and still is a slower processor than i7-7700 he has now, which is like 4 years old.
Maybe great for first desktop.

sears was great, i would know the exact date because it was always consistent. Scored so many deals that way. I would just walk over to the place where they have the printed out tags on the pages and just go through them like I was reading a book. Target was always good years back too because they had different sections different days and it was consistent so you could schedule it out also. I dont shop target much anymore so dont know if it still holds true.

Every walmart seems to run on a different schedule, so even if "thursday" is the drop day for electronics there it may not be somewhere else. I still have walmarts around me with 549 as the price. When they drop to 499, i'll be surprised lol

i5-9400f benchmarks higher (12k v 10.6k), and is 6core vs 4core. Storage and memory is cheap but yea it needs both other those. Fans can be added cheap also with afew mods although the main thing I read is the motherboard is limiting, so thats most of the time the dealbreaker for people. i7 does have more threads and alot of other things though, so depends on use.

Great price for a desktop, especially if you just want it for that and you sell the graphics card.

A friend and I each got I've for 400. YMMV but a great price for plug and play

I had a1060 laptop before this, and it's a definite upgrade. Not eath shattering 2x the power or something, but good enough for it to be worth it!

Thanks OP.
