Yeah. The calculator recommends just under 600 PSU for this tower. Getting a 450 watts and a 600 watts PSU is like 20 dollars difference at the retail level.

I am thinking this MOBO uses standard connections so PSU upgrade will be easy.

I would stay away from this deal. I work with Lenovo products. These parts are cheap. the RTX 2080 is one of the cheapest blower models. Only part they can't cheap out on in this build is the 9900k.

Did anyone who bought previously get answers to following?
Lenovo is avoiding answering them.

I bought this pc with a 3 year onsite warranty. I have a questions if someone from Lenovo Canada can answer them please.

1. Will I void my warranty if I upgrade my pc, video-card, ram, hard drive , power supply etc ...

2. Will changing the case void my warranty ?

3. How does the onsite warranty work in Canada, does a service technician come over and change the part for you ?

4. If I sell this pc to a friend or a family member, does the 3 year warranty get transferred to them ? Do I have to transfer it or is the warranty already attached to the pc.

This system interests me.

OP gets an upvote.

Folks should stretch their tri's and quads, maybe consider running at this one.

Let's break this down:
9th Generation Intel® Core™ i9-9900K Processor (3.60GHz, up to 5.0GHz with Turbo Boost, 16MB Cache) [Best of Show]
Operating System
Windows 10 Home 64 [Pro is better, upgrade for $5 on eBay]
Memory
32.0GB DDR4 2666MHz [32GB is righteous and godly, 2666Mhz is fine.]
2TB 7200 RPM [Ambien] +256GB PCIe SSD [It's a start]
DVD Recordable [Nostalgia]
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 8GB [God bless]
Keyboard
USB English Keyboard
Pointing Device
USB Optical Mouse
WiFi Wireless LAN Adapters
802.11 AC (2 x 2) + Bluetooth® 4.2 [Decent]
Power Supply 450W [It's barely enough, replace it... or suck it up.]
130W Air Cooling

How much is this thing with your employee discount?

It seems great deal a few month back but now with RAM/SSD prices down so much it does not seem as good.

I think it's good deal for those who does not want to build and want to write it off for business with 3 year onsite warranty.

If you are a serious gaming then get someone to build you custom pc.

But putting 450W PSU in i9-9900k + RTX 2080 machine is almost criminal.

I'm surprised it will even post with a 450W PSU.

Problem is Lenovo does not answer if changing PSU or other components will void their warranty.

The legendary Lenovo deal in December had this model at $1,804 with a 500W PSU, although many had their order cancelled.
IBM 701 | germanium diodes | 2000 multiplication or division operations per second | 2048 word memory on 72 tubes, 1024 bits per tube| 38-bit Accumulator | 36-bit Multiplier-Quotient | 2 IBM 726 magnetic tapes - 2x 2 million digit storage

To be honest, the wattage calculators puts this in safe territory. The problem comes is when you add PCIe devices.

I actually think this deal is warm-ish... even if you keep the PSU.

I am not sure how many people actually got this during Dec, but I will mention the 2080 only has a single fan. So if you plan on gaming 4k or high fps expect the fan to max out. Also, might consider 3rd party fan controllers as the card does throttle after a certain temp (reaches it quickly). I did end up with the warranty with the knowledge that both 2080 and the 9900 has thermal issues.

They did it on purpose, so when something brake, they say you changed components.

Anyway, i am not hardcore gamer and missed the last time deal on this pc. But for those that say stay away and have it build, could you suggest something similar or better at this price?

Love drooling at these Lenovo deals when they pop up. +1 to OP. When I get more free time to actually use a gaming computer, I'm going to hunt RFD for a Lenovo deal like this.

It's fine, you shouldn't need to upgrade this rig until the warranty expires (1 year).

They probably can't. The new build part price is still a little higher than this, last I checked. The convenience of a pre-built is nothing to sneeze at either.

I'd say hit it if you're interested in a solid rig.
