This PC with a Core i5 CPU and GTX 1060 is just $630 right now

Now that the full lineup of Nvidia RTX graphics cards and GTX 16-series cards are here, PC manufacturers are starting to offload their remaining desktops with older GPUs. One of Acer's 'Nitro 50' PCs with a Core i5-8400 and a 6GB GTX 1060 is just $630 right now—$70 off the original price, and much cheaper than building the same PC yourself.

The PC is a strange mix of parts, but still good enough for playing AAA games (or heavy productivity) at 1080p. It has an Intel Core i5-8400 six-core processor, 12GB of 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM, an unspecified 256GB SSD, and a GTX 1060 6GB. The 12GB RAM configuration is a bit odd, but to make things weirder, Acer has thrown in a DVD burner too.

The total cost of the parts, including the Windows 10 license, costs somewhere in the neighbourhood of $900. Granted, you could get something cheaper by going with a more common 16GB RAM kit and dropping the DVD drive, but the Acer PC is still a good gaming machine. You might not ever use that disc drive, but hey, it's there!

This PC is a strange mix of parts, especially with a DVD burner and a dedicated sound card, but it's still a great value for all the hardware you get. Buy at B&H (Posted: 5/1)
