      @King Cartier JS if he waits a year for the 30 series then it'll be sad a year later when the new ones will come out. And the new ones will be sad another year later. You can't say something is sad just because something new came in. New GPUs will come every year, doesn't mean he has to wait until nvidia goes out of business.

    I gotta say, that customer service from best buy was pretty good, he offered to price match 2 weeks ago. At my local worst buy I was told to go kick rocks, when I asked them if they could price match last weeks price on a gaming monitor. I even called the customer service line and they said there was nothing they could do. All that shit for the price to drop a week later to the same price it was on sale.

    I wanted to build a PC but due to the pandemic I had to buy a prebuilt. Decent for the price and surprised they put dual channel ram in there

    That's actually a really good deal for what you got. I recently tried building a mid-ranged gaming pc, and when the parts were added up, I was paying over $800. That's quite a lot for mid-range specs. I ended up buying a HP Pavilion 690 series gaming PC (the mid-range version) and I paid ~$600 (on sale). The HP had way better components than what I was getting trying to build it myself. All I had to do with the HP was buy an SSD (I may also upgrade the RAM in tne foreseeable future). So deals do exist and you can actually getting something that's prebuilt with good performance.

      You guys sound like fucking idiots correcting a Best Buy employee .... Best Buy hires new 18 -20 year olds every week and very few know anything about computers. Always ask for the computer manager they will actually know shit, or find an employee that’s been in that dept for awhile. This kid doesn’t even get commission just a stupid picture on the wall when he sells a million dollars worth of product, no bonus or anything. Source: I worked here in college

      ​ HellF1re24 It's not his fault really. They're selling bunch types of electronics in these stores - so this dude must have some knowaldge. I can imagine, that not a lot of people are buying pre-build PC's in electro-markets, so they don't even pay atention for proper empoloyee training on this.

    I got a premade PC for $500 with GTX 970 Ti and i5-6400, 8GB ram, I then upgraded the graphics to GTX 1050Ti and added another 8 GB (resulting to a total of 16 GB) of ram, now it's working smoothly in all games I have.

    In 2014 I upgraded my Dell Precision t3500 to an XPS 8700 for less then $800 bucks and I bought it at Costco so I got Dell's pro support for zip, zilch, nada. That's 3 years protection. It came with an i7 4790, 8 gb ram and a lousy but useful Geforce 750ti, I swapped that out for an r9 280 and dual raid0 Samsung ssd and we still use it today. Granted we've upgraded the video to a 1070 for better rendering, and ram to 24gb but that computer has been reliable.Amazingly rock solid. It's 100% true I might have been able to build most of it for about the same price, but having that pro support package was in my opinion a wise investment. I usually spend upwards of $150 on my Latitude laptops just for that option alone.

      How to buy a gaming PC from BestBuy : 1. Buy the Demo model that's on clearence. (the ones you see out on the floor everyone plays around with...) 2. Check the BIOS settings are all maxxed to what you want. 3. Reinstall the O/S, with minimal install, no bloat. DONE. Now you have a new PC, clean, and at a low cost, typically a few hundred less than the exact same thing, new in box.

      Buy a 5 year old workstation for peanuts from a corp and have 5 years of CPU defense.(No need to worry). You need to put a gpu in it but you needed that anyway. You also get very special ecc ram so your system will be bullet proof as well as a cooling system that will run 24 hours at 100% load guaranteed. OK you're new GPU may compromise that but I'd bet it will still be better than any solution you could make. That case will be almost entirely the best cooled it could be. HP engineers don't fuck around. I say HP because the absolute best workstations are built by HP. Buy Dell if you want. They might be good too. I know HP are completely bulletproof for 10 years plus. Massively over engineered. Maybe that's an approach? Luv and Peace.

    Hp pavillian 690-0024 is pretty cheap, and I've been using it for a while and games like Apex, overwatch, and fortnite run pretty good on it. Obviously not the best pc, but really good for a cheap gaming desktop

    I love how the Best Buy guy just goes to the Best Buy website and just looks it all up. The CUSTOMER could do that from home. The reason you go into a store is to talk to someone who ALREADY knows all about this stuff - Geeks - nerds - gamers... in the old days (i.e. mid 90's) - you'd have extremely verbose and knowledgeable sales-guys at BB telling you exactly what NOT to buy - why their featured products sucked and why you should just spend the the extra money to order directly from DELL or ASUS and avoid BB HP Pavilions at all costs.

    It's actually cheaper for me to buy a pre built PC with a 2060, ryzen 5 3600, 16gb RAM, 500 ssd and 1 tb HDD than to buy the parts and build it myself. The pricing for australian components is retarded.

    I bought my current gaming pc from Best Buy. It's from ibuypower. I bought it for 1299 in April 2019 and it came with 16gb of ram, an i7-8700, RTX 2070, and a 1tb SSD. It also came with a mechanical keyboard and a mouse that I never used since I bought razer stuff at the same time. I figured for 1299 that was a pretty damn good price for all that stuff and would be a nice entry point to get me into PC gaming.

    So, I have what I believe to be the same desktop, maybe a little off, but the components and design seem to be the same, and it does not run games, like Rocket League, nearly as well...Could this possibly be the fact that I have a 60Hz monitor, if not, what else could be the problem..?

    My dad’s computer (optiplex 9020 windows 8 pro) had been bit locked so we put in a graphics card, windows 10, and an SSD in it and it can play Forza Horizon 4 on ultra at 75 FPS. He had a warranty so he got a new windows 10 pc for free
