[Lenovo Canada] Lenovo Gaming PC ($935 - 9% Rakuten = $850 CAD)GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, , Intel i5-9400

saw this on reddit : https://www.reddit.com/r/bapcsalescanad ... ame=iossmf

GeForce GTX 1660 Ti
Wireless AC + Bluetooth
Includes Mouse and Keyboard
Windows 10 Home
Intel i5-9400
16 GB DDR4 Memory
1TB 7200 RPM + 256GB PCIe SSD

seems like a good deal for a under $1000 gaming PC and you can apply 9% rakuten =$850

Good luck all

surprisingly not horrible if you want to buy a prebuilt PC. but i wonder what the motherboard looks like (e.g. expansion slots etc)? alot of the big brand components are really trimmed back, limiting expansion/flexibiltiy in future.

IF you want to buy a new PC, you can probably build a ryzen 3600 + motherboard + 16gb DDR 4 + 1660TI + 1TB nvme + case + power supply for about the same price.

this really looks decent

the only negatives are windows 10 home and if you happen to pick the french version which comes with 2x 8GB sticks. all the other models i think comes with 1x 16GB DIMM and an empty dimm slot.

any other negatives??? i guess the power supply is going to be proprietary?

At its heart are the powerful 9th Gen Intel® Core™ processor and up to NVIDIA® Geforce® GTX 1660 Ti discrete graphics, boosting performance and bringing you superfast, smooth, power-efficient gameplay and hassle-free multitasking.
Convenience in a tower. I doubt you'll get a PS bigger than 210w I'd be concerned the 1660ti is in 65w territory, 90w would match my expectations. So you'll likely have a slightly better processor performance than a laptop but similar GPU performance as one.

It's not *bad*, but a very average machine in today's world. With the new consoles coming out being much more powerful, this will have trouble playing recent games pretty soon.

Unless you are waiting for all those parts to go on sale, I don't think you can build that set up right now for the same price.

1660Ti can play any of the current games at high settings at 1080. The only reason you need to go up is if you're streaming or if you're gaming in QHD/4k.

Why compare the sale price of a prebuild to regular prices of PC parts?

Hi there everyone,
I recently purchased the Acer Prebuilt with GTX 1650 for $700 (taxes includ), should i return that one from Amazon and purchase this one? I don't mind the hassle of returning. Would this gaming pc be worth it for $150 more? Please let me know your thoughts. I'm not sure how reliable Lenovo is in terms of upgrading the parts. Thanks!

Note: Will use the PC for light-to-moderate gaming such as WarZone, Overwatch and etc. Am i fine with the 1650?

For a desktop, would this be a better choice?

https://www.lenovo.com/ca/en/desktops-a ... 90NC000PUS

Legion 5i: i5-10400F, 16 GB DDR4, RTX 2060 6GB, 512 GB SSD for $1350 - 9% Rakuten = $1,229 (with student discount, around 1170)? Or maybe I should pull the trigger on this for 810?

Ok, please show a pcpartpicker with the mentioned parts at sale prices available currently that is equal to the price. Would love to buy that instead with the Ryzen.

no it won't. You'll be able to play games at 1080p for many years at probably medium/high settings. Don't expect to go ultra high detail settings and stuff or higher resolution and you will be fine.

All these sub $1000 gaming PC deals are for mediocre gaming experiences. If it's barely passable today, what's it gonna be tomorrow? Thinking Face

For the guy above, a 2060 is pretty decent (today). I guess it depends which games you plan on playing.

Probably games like The Sims 4, Shadow of the Tomb Raider with 1080p 90+ Hz on High settings? 144 Hz might be a bit much to ask for haha
