Depends on what you need it for, which is why I was laughing at the 'XTREME GAMING' moniker. For gaming at 1080p with medium settings, this might barely do. But there's certainly nothing 'XTREME' about it. Plus, comments on Amazon say that the computer comes with only one stick of 8GB with three open slots. That means no dual channel out of the box.

If you need it for work/productivity, you're going to want to add some more RAM anyway, at least 8GB, but preferably more. Means more money out of pocket.

So, to answer your question, no I would not say that this is a good computer as sold, even at this price.


EDIT: I missed that you asked specifically about gaming, so just ignore the second part.

It's one of those stupid names that marketers like to come up with. Like "Best Plumber" or "Reliable Pest Extermination" or "Top Brand Computers". The fact that they felt the need to name their brand something deceptive like that instead of relying on building up brand reputation, tells you the product's qualities are probably the opposite of what the name suggests. Using the spelling "Xtreme" is probably another way to skirt the FTC's false advertising rules, since they can claim that "xtreme" does not mean extreme.

This the best price for the i5 10400+ 1660 super combo. The FP Costco deal was 10400 + 1660 Super, 250GB NVMe, 16GB Ram for $710. This one 500GB NVMe instead. You can add 8GB RAM yourself easily.

Haha. Very funny. You guys are right. Those just marketing in names.
I saw a brand name called "best choice products" and it's not even Amazon's choice just try to confuse customer.
Graphic card is not high end but it's solid one(good pick for low cost gaming), will be okay to play LOL kind of game but definitely can't play AAA title on high graphic settings.
Also the small RAM will be kind of wasting because you will have a hard time match same brand they sell you if you want to add more. Very likely just replace new ones. RAM are not expensive, they should put more.

For a entrar level and first time PC gamer this is really good. Just got one for my nephew with a 165hz tuff gaming monitor total of $850. That's a pretty good deal to me.

I'm not sure why so many people are hating on this. This is a very solid deal for a very decent desktop. You will want to get 16GB RAM. However, this is not low settings gaming for AAA titles as some other comments have suggested. Even with AAA you are looking at medium settings easy. For this price, the ability to play virtually any game out there on decent settings I see this as a great PC. If you need a monster rig - this is obviously not it, but nor will you be looking at any rig in this price range (or under 1k really).

I own a very tiny VR company and I'm pretty familiar with hardware requirements but I can't see what makes this thing a VR computer. maybe because it's got good single core performance from the CPU and the GTX card in there can drive most simple VR games that are made and optimized well. But the minute you start throwing complex shit at it it's going to just collapse.

Being in VR and staying in the VR space is going to take an RTX card. The two main reasons are DLSS and VRSS. Until there's a competitor to this technology, a real competitor, these are the things that you're going to need to do to stay in the game. Also, Nvidia just purely has put in the money and research into white papers regarding VR. They have published scientific papers laying out their systems and patents and all of the different methods they usethat kind of investment in the technology.

Part of my company is owning a VR arcade and I would use this computer for one of our lower-level cheaper experiences. but it's hardly a premium and it's hardly extreme. However, if you don't have the ability or patience to build your own system and don't give a shit about The future or just jumping on because it's a trend, this probably would be just fine. But only 8 gigs of RAM, a three generation old video card that doesn't have the ability to do DLSS or VRSS and a CPU that has some hyperthreading but not a lot, (few VR games take full advantage of multiple cores and hyperthreading as of yet. They're just starting to.) just isn't a good investment if you're planning on getting a premium headset and playing in this space for a long time. Just my two cents.
