Spotted this at Best Buy, seems to be decent for the specs, though I am not shopping for one at the moment.

Just fyi for people considering this, the 7th gen cpu means there isn't an easy upgrade path if you decide to do so. You would have to buy a new cpu, mobo and ram.

That's true of every Intel system made in the last 15 years, they change the sockets about once every year or two. By the time anyone needs to upgrade, they can't. Also, the RAM is the same as a current-gen Coffee Lake system, DDR4. I'd rate this deal as warm, it's a good deal, but last gen.

Bad case and has a warranty sticker. Wouldn't recommend.

Suffers from the prebuilt plague of shitty power supply (500w) and shitty cooling. Why risk such high end comp parts and cheap out so bad in others.

I saw this deal and was already considering this system by iBUYPower: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B078H7 ... EEQB&psc=1

How do they compare?

8th Gen CPU on the IBP machine, but only comes with a 1070, the Acer is 7th gen but comes with a 1080, AND its $200 cheaper. The liquid cooling on the IBP machine is a definite plus though...

Should note that the price is $1699, not $1899 as mentioned in the OP.

You should look into the dell days of deals. For todays deal these are the specs:

i7-8700K
256GB SSD + 2TB7200RPM
32gb DDR4 RAM
GTX1070 8GB

For 2079 + Tax - EBATES (10%)

For the 8th gen and 32gb of RAM I think its a killer deal!

LOL, thanks...I had posted this a month back and now it got a further $200 price drop. Considering the high value of video cards nowadays, I think at $1699.99 it's a pretty good deal despite 7th gen CPU.

That case is a bit too obnoxious.
I thought the same thing. Plus wotry about heat. 7700 runs hot and the cooling is probably not that great. The other system I was looking at being liquid cool is a big plus. probably runs much quietter too.

I'm not buying this because I bought a G5 laptop but this is pretty hot at $1699.

This should be sold out already.
