i would compare with this link above which has a better 1660 ti for $150 plus cheaper....
Ty! I'm really keen on the extra threads so I wish this were a 10th gen or I at least had the option to customize it. 😞

Graphics card is old. Anything that isn't RTX and therefore can't do DLSS is going to be left in the dust this generation. You're better off getting a CPU+Mobo combo for cheap and waiting for a price drop on last gen RTX cards, you'll pay a bit more but it'll last you a lot longer

1660 Super was released less than a year ago.

Also, it all depends on the use case.

1660 Super can play most anything at 1080@60 on ultra settings. If you want higher/better then go bigger, but that doesn't make this a bad deal.

Comparing this deal to a 3080 that costs about as much as this entire PC and, by the way, you probably won't get your hands on until 2021 doesn't really make much sense. Like saying a Honda is a bad deal becuase it isn't a 2021 Tesla.

Fo what you get here, this is a nice deal.

Performance wise, you won't be able to tell the difference between the i5 9400 and the i5 10400.
They both retail within $20-25 of each other.
1660ti > 1660 super
The real difference here is the fact that the $150 cheaper system has a 256 SSD not a 500 SSD.

I think both systems are relatively crap by today's standards but at sub $900 you won't find much better.

This is what you buy a child who is playing minecraft and fortnite and still needs a decent computer for other things. Spending $900 on a gaming PC is pretty much bottom budget while still hitting decent fps.

If you're an adult who can afford a real gaming PC, then hold off until the rtx 3080 and 3070 systems start dropping. A 3070 could make an extremely affordable gaming computer for the sub $500 GPU range.
The i5-10400 has double the threads of the i5-9400 and also a higher boost clock. You can absolutely tell the difference between those two CPU's. While I agree with you that saving up for the RTX 3070 is a great idea for those that can afford it, if someone just wants to game in 1080p and 60fps then $900 is plenty to build a solid gaming PC.

i know not everyone has a microcenter near them, but if you do and are building a budget build-
cpu = 160 (i5-10400)
mobo = 40 (cheapest H board for $60 minus $20 bundle discount)
ram = 55 (2x8 3200mhz, you'd want dual channel anyway)
ssd = 55 (for budget 500gb ssd)
gpu = 230 (1660 super)
case = 60 (any budget case popping up on SD lately)
psu = 55 (powerspec 550w 80+ bronze)
keyboard & mouse = 30 for very budget

i'm gonna assume you have your own (& better quality) keyboard and mouse, so i won't take that into account. before windows 10, that's $655.

however, if you were to get a legit win10 ($80-130) and use microcenter's pc building services ($150), that's right around $900 ballpark. but building a basic pc is not difficult - plenty of step-by-step youtube videos for that, and it can be a fun project.

also, many people buy gray market win10 on ebay for $5. that's up to you, but a potential money saver. those keys do work; it's just a matter of ethics.

one upside of buying a prebuilt is troubleshooting & warranty is easier - you only have to deal with one company.

my personal opinion - wait for rtx 3060 (if you're on a budget) AND amd rdna 2 cards, watch a few youtube videos, and build your own. you'll get better performance per dollar for sure.

I was going to say something mean to the original poster but i rather support your comment. This PC will play any game you need at 1080p. Its not cutting edge but $2000+ for a "real adult" gaming PC is way more than most people want or are willing to pay.

Also on a more serious note why are the 16XX series cars now "junk" compared to the new RTX cards? I have seen this comment once or twice. My sons plays ARK on a old 940m and on low settings he does just fine and has fun. So i am having trouble seeing how a 16XX series card will be extremely out dated just because a new 30XX is coming out.
