[Walmart] Lenovo Ideacentre Y720 Cube Desktop Intel® Core™ i5-7300 AMD Radeon RX 480 - Clearance $898

Hi All,

I was looking for a low cost VR ready desktop PC and found this.

I am thinking about buying it as my main desktop PC at home. I do lots of work using Microsoft Office, light games, fair amount of photo editing and HD video editing. Want to have a VR ready PC as well. I am not very technical. Hope that I can see some inputs/comments here. Is this a reasonable good deal?

I have spent some time researching. I believe the ad has an error. This unit should come with Intel Core i5 7400 and AMD Radeon RX 480 8 GB. I was told that the graphic card alone is worth more than $500.

Regards,

Shane

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten....

Out of stock at Staples but I can still order at Walmart.

People with technical knowledge, its it true that the 8GB graphic card alone is worth more than $500?

How easy would be to mine with this thing? It's only a single RX480 card, but if it gets like $3 to $4 a day, payoff is like less than a year.

Weird. It just showed as unavailable on my phone just now.

I'm curious how good of a deal this is as well. Dell has a desktop on sale right now with 8th gen i5, GTX1060 3GB and pretty much the same specs otherwise. Its $999 but with cashback and workperks (for some) it brings it right down to the same price-ish... even cheaper maybe.

I didn't realize an RX 480 was worth a lot but I checked eBay for used and yeah not far off, wow. I know about the mining situation but I just assumed that those early reference cards were not desirable for it. I have one that's almost never getting used for gaming, just a waste really.

At today's price of ETH, you'd get around 2$ per day with a single RX480. This is without taking into account the hydro cost.
