Anybody have experience with this machine? Is it built like a 2-year and done PC, hard to update with soldered components?
Most desktops are made to stay in one place, and don't die after 2 years. I have had my current desktop for 5 years. Just because you can't update the parts doesn't make a computer a 2-year and done PC.

no this will last you a good while, assuming you're not gaming or rendering. PCs with remotely competent components are never designed to be "2-year and done".

in terms of upgrading, what do you actually plan on upgrading?

this was actually discussed in the prior thread, and there were some differing arguments.

due to the low wattage psu (180 watts), i personally wouldn't recommend adding a discrete gpu, as nvidia recommends a 450w power supply. 1660 super itself draws 125w alone. even for the 1650, nvidia recommends a 300w power supply.

if you're not pushing the performance, technically it will still work, although you'll need an adapter to add power to the GPU as the power supply most likely will not come with an unused 8 pin connector. also, you most likely won't be able to upgrade the psu without significant workaround as they do not use a standard atx psu and use proprietary connectors to the motherboard and case.

in short, it's not recommended and it's not worth the effort. if you want to add a discrete gpu for gaming, i suggest either building one or purchasing one that comes with one already.

Somehow last night/early this morning, I was able to get it for 449.99. Only on my phone it showed 28% off. When I checked out it had an extra $50 off for like and associates discount? I don't work there. My old university email address is on the account but that doesn't make sense either.

Is this a good gaming processor? I've only been following AMD, but covid pricing has held me back.


Other considerations:
- I already have a gtx1080
- I have a 750W power supply I could swap in if the power supply is swappable
