HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop 790-0020

Hello. So I am currently looking at a pre-built PC (HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop 790-0020 - Current price is at $775 on amazon) If this is too expensive for its hardware, could anyone recommend me a good prebuilt pc (Never built a PC before so...) under 800 that is good for everyday use such as Youtube/School work and some games like OW and LOL?

 

(https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c06016679 - Link to specs - I will very likely buy a 1TB Hard-drive as this doesn't have a HD, just a 256 GB SSD)

I mean... as a PC person I'd always recommend building yourself. (it's really easy.)
But if you're absolutely stuck on a pre-built, I'd recommend either a Ryzen 3 or Ryzen 5 build, or a Core i5 8600, because Let's just forget that the 8400 exists.

That's not bad for the price, piece of mind, OS, warranty, etc if you don't want to try building a PC.  It will smash League lol.  I would look for similarly spec'd prebuilts on Newegg as well to compare.

330$ or out of stock.

i5-8400 vs 2700X the 8400 has better GAMING perf. sure its bad compared to ryzen for productivity and intel pricing is way out of wack, but for gaming, it's pretty good.

I just agree with the poster and agree with his why - price to performance is meh on that chip imho, and looking at the most recent previous generation i5's of that "tier" - those suck bad to (from everything I read) (and by suck, I mean price to performance ratio)

Im not like one of those super hardcore gamers that need a 1080TI or something. I just game on a casual basis and I don't want to spend over $900 Max for any PC prebuilt or not. Should I build my own PC (Somehow) if this is something I shouldn't get?

Still look around for pre-builts, but also start maybe looking up PC building guides just in case.

No no we are builders just comparing whose spec is longer lol

 

Im a casual myself, that's not a bad buy if you must buy a prebuilt.  However I would continue to do more research if I were you (because if I were going to buy a prebuilt I would want to eek out my $$$ to Performance as much as possible)
