It always blows my mind how expensive a gaming PC seems. Then those bits of my brain get blown up again when I realize it's the cost of a modern iPhone.

5 to 10 years ago you need to spend 3000 for a whole high end rig. now it's much better.

But yeah iphone price is insane lol. my iphone 5s i got for 60 bucks a year ago does 90% what the new one can do and really make no difference for me based on usage. the folding phone i think can justify the price, it's actually useful. want nice phone screen just pick up a samsung note 4 or 5 for 100 to 200 bucks and good to go.

this one would be good if the 2070 is super. the dell killer wireless is very very good though : )

Can bestbuy pricematch?
No benefit if they no longer offer 10% discount of price difference, 3x aeroplan miles and extra warranty are better :)

For what it's worth, I picked up this system during the Best Buy deal and I've been very happy with it. Pretty quiet at full load and has handled the few games (@ 1440p) I've tried on it easily.

As was said in the previous posts, you can probably build a system with brand name parts for around the same cost but at this price, it is quite competitive and the convenience of a pre-built system is worth it to me.

Anyone know what the actual parts breakdown are? Trying to compare the price against just parts at pcpartpicker.

RTX 2070 - $600
i5 9600k - $300
RAM - $100
Mobo - $150
AIO - $100
PSU - $70
SSD - $50
Case - $50

So like $1400 - $1500 ish if you build this yourself with the cheapest stuff around. I forgot to add the cost of the HDD and DVD.

This is pretty good for this price.

Edit: I was also pointed out that I am missing the Windows License. So yeah... this is a great deal.
