Is this HP Omen Gaming PC Worth It?

5 hours ago, TrishKrish said:

Alrighty, So I am also from Canada, on first look, I really did think that was a good deal, Due to the 8th gen chip, and the 1080.

But now that I do some quick math, and some googling... You are paying near $1,000 more then you could build it for... Trust me, The odds of somtthing messing up while building it, Is slim to non, I also had no idea, how to build a pc but there are 1,001 guides on YouTube that can help you if you get stuck, Or even make a post on here... Here are some rough pricing of the cost it would cost to build the same PC as this.

 

CPU- 450$

GPU - 700$

RAM - 200$

SSD - 250$

HD - 80$

Case - 50$

Mouse / Keyboard - 50$

 

Around 800$ cheaper, To build it yourself.

I know building is the cheapest option but I don't want to mess it up. I don't mind paying a small premium to have the one year warranty and guarantee it works out of the box.
