Anyone know of any computer stores that offer price matching? There are no Microcenters in Wisconsin.

I bought a similar model from BestBuy about 1.5 years ago, it's a decent gaming machine, played the 3 recent Lara Croft Tomb Raider games with no problem. RAM is expandable and there is a slot for a 2.5" second drive. For occasional gaming it's not a bad machine...hardcore gamers should look for a better machine.

it's a decent deal for $500. But of course it is better to go a step up with the RTX 3050 ti 4gb for DLSS compatibility.

Got a bestbuy to price match. For 500 with a decent dedicated gpu, very hard to beat. Microcenter also has them open box ranging from around 375-460

A friend of mine paid 500 for this two years ago, it's not that great, he tried to play Forza horizon four, and he gets warning messages saying it doesn't meet the minimum requirements. The processor is nice, but the 1650 is lame, a 3050 is a lot faster, and you see deals for those pop-up all the time

Forza can run in intel graphics. I think you are making stuff up.

How you get Bestbuy to match? Far as i can tell, they don't even sell this model.

I just asked through their chat, at the time they did have this model for 699 or 649 I think.
