Whenever I see a pre-built, I ask this simple question: What make is the PSU?

Lol, I don't know where they got those 1440p "benchmarks", but I don't believe that for a second, you're not going to drop that many frames going from 1080p to 1440p on that GPU. Were it 1080p/4K I might believe it. More on topic, I'd be curious about the motherboard/PSU at that price, seems low - granted, it only has 8GB of RAM, but still, that's pretty low for the components it's using.

The sale price is okayish. You could still build your own for cheaper though.

I'd be concerned about longevity for something this cheap....looking down through the effusive praise from computer neophytes that have used the machine for a matter of days I see infrequent posts about components breaking/temperature issues - I'm not sure I would buy this particular pre-built.

I have never had a gaming PC and always just use my PC for 6-8 years before getting a new one when I feel like it's too damn slow and whatnot.

I've always been a console gamer and will happily stay on that because all my friends are on it. With that said, I finally bought a prebuilt gaming pc because I know nothing about building one myself.

700 bucks. Not too shabby for me anyway. But the point of my post is because I saw this reply from SkittyonWailord (nice Pokemon names by the way!).

I got my PC from Amazon about 2 weeks ago and the fan noise was driving me nuts. It would just freaking rev up like a jet engine every time I open more then 3 tabs on Chrome or if I tried to watch anything on Youtube or stream Overwatch League on Twitch. It turns out it was coming from their cheap *** 460W power supply which has no name brand on it. I ordered this Seasonic 650W power supply last weekend.

Then I found out that Dell made their PC Cases so that it doesn't exactly fit other PSUs intentionally. So I couldn't put in the PSU up against the back of the case because it would push up against the power switch. Thankfully I had a bunch of long screws in the garage, about 2-3 inches long. So I installed it the ghetto way but it holds nonetheless. Now my PC is whisper quiet and I'm thinking of downloading Steam and go from there or something.

Anyway, the point of my post is that if you go for it, upgrade your PSU. From the countless research I've done regarding fan noise, I learned that for prebuilt PCs, they find somewhere to go cheap on you. In my case, it was the power supply.
If you make an intelligent post, people tend to ignore it because they only respond to stupid. Don't believe me? Just look at most of the chained replies.
