Although very dependent upon local inventory (and of course, the presence of the store in your market) Fry's includes an offer on this model desktop weekly as part of their outlet discounts (presumably while supplies last) which discounts their $799 price by another 25%.

The primary distinction (besides potentially saving $100 at Fry's) is that there Fry's system has the older 760 while the MicroCenter option has the newer 960.

This may not be the slickest price on this desktop, but the MicroCenter price definitely offers a nice price for a very good system.

Good luck!

Both would be very close, with power and heat probably being dangerously so. Your only real upgrade opportunity would likely appear from future, more power-efficient platforms. Based upon current reviews even the new RX 480 would stress the system relative to the current GPU, leaving open only the opportunity of a sort of side-grade with a future RX 470.

Good luck!

Bought this Memorial Day Weekend sale. Been same price since then. Computer functions flawlessly. Gets good frame rates and no issues. I wasn't going to build one with a price and warranty like this. Marietta Ga store has plenty. Free upgrade to 10 gave 8 frames increase. Good luck.

So I have built 2 pcs in the last two years. For those that own prebuilt gaming pc's are these easily upgradable with RAM, SSD, and the like?

most of the are easily upgradable. the only problem i feel with this is does it have the space to add some more hdds and ram?

I'm looking for a separate computer to use strictly for my HTC Vive. Would this be able to handle it?

I think gtx 970 is the entry level to VR, so probably not.

I would not count on a GTX 960 for VR, its just not powerful enough. There is a pretty large difference between the 960 and 970. Its also probably only got 2gb VRAM so theres that issue as well.

"To use Vive, your computer must meet the following recommended minimum system requirements.
GPU: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 970, AMD Radeon™ R9 290 equivalent or better
CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-4590/AMD FX™ 8350 equivalent or better
RAM: 4 GB or more
Video output: HDMI 1.4, DisplayPort 1.2 or newer
USB port: 1x USB 2.0 or better port
Operating system: Windows® 7 SP1, Windows® 8.1 or later, Windows® 10"

A 970 is a good 35-40% more powerful than a 960.

Yeah because you're new to slickdeals. I could build a similar system for under 600 easy and with a rx 480 for the same price laugh out loud
