There is better for the same price. I personally would try go for the RTX 3060 version just for that extra vram if you are willing to spend the little bit extra.  Definitely try keep to a 6 core 12 thread cpu. I personally got the Nitro 5 i5 10300H with the Rtx 3060. And I should have just spent the little bit extra to get the i7 version. Or the AMD version. But the laptop itself is decent and even with the i5 it works well. And I havent noticed too many bottlenecks while gaming. Even though its only a 4 core 8 thread processor. Just note if you do go with the RTX 3060 version in the Nitro 5 (Dont see on best buy though for acer) there is a bios update which takes the rtx 3060 from 85 watts to 95 watts. 

 

I would personally go with these price wise https://www.bestbuy.com/site/msi-gf65-15-6-144hz-gaming-laptop-intel-core-i5-nvidia-geforce-rtx3060-512gb-ssd-8gb-memory-black/6456144.p?skuId=6456144 (I would just also add another 8gb sodimm into this. It is an i5 but the 6 core 12 thread version)

Thanks for the suggestions, but I want to know how useful would the 3050 be with the other specs
