I don't like prebuilt systems but this is a pretty good deal considering just the video card and CPU would add up to a similar price.

I agree with you. Tried to spec something similar on pcpartpicker but nothing will fall in this price bracket with this graphic card and processor. Plus component prices are sky rocketing these days.

In other news, this came to my recent memory. I returned it last year and now I’m tempted by the Acer with i7 and 2080. What do you guys think? Is this Acer a better deal when compared to the Dell last year?

May I know why you returned the Alienware? I saw that deal and REALLY wanted to purchase from Costco but they didn't deliver to Quebec Crying Face :facepalm: .

Do these use standard size components? Can you replace components / put in a new case?

I bought one as it was showing only 5 left on the Best Buy app. Was waiting for the Asus one to be back in stock but I feel this is the better value and the Asus went back up in price for $1999. I feel Bluetooth 5.0 and WiFi support, i7 9700K and RTX 2080 is really worth it.

Funny how best buy bumped up the price of the Asus Tuf 4800H laptop from $1299 to $1399

What motherboard and RAM are those? Looks horrible.

Not a bad price for the convenience of prebuilt.

If you intend on upgrading it, first thing you'd want to do is get that stock cooler changed on the CPU. Can't imagine you'd get full performance with that kind of heat.

My apologies. It broke my heart too. I actually don’t game and I just buy cheap games on fanatical and redeem free epic games and buy the odd humble bundle, not to mention free twitch prime games. I’m just itching to find a reason to replace a GTX 1070 with i7 2600K on a motherboard that I can’t OC the CPU on (woops). Just messing around. Never serious because I don’t need it!

That motherboard looks scuffed. I'm just gonna wait for the rtx 3000 series to drop and pair that with the new i9
