I could use some computer shopping advice, budget-grade (and eternal n00b) version.
Seriously, if you plan to do any sort of gaming: just forget Integrated. 10700 regular or 10700T won't do yourself any good, if there's an actual game you want to play...and you don't have much of a video card.
Doesn't surprise me that a All-In-One failed also. Just...yeah, I'd rather one part or so fail in my desktop; and then just replace that. One of the nice things about a desktop and all.
Sure, integrated GPU's have gotten better - but, for similar money in the $700-1000 range, you could either buy a gaming laptop or gaming desktop.
The IBP's with the 1650; or IBP with 6gb 1660 Ti (that sounds MUCH better to me, TBH); and even going AMD from C-Power sounds like much better option than the All-In-1's.
You could easily do 1080p60fps at Medium or better without RT (Ray-Tracing) in that $700-1000 range.
You could buy laptop with a decent video card (i.e. 1660 Ti's to maybe even some 2060 variant) and have pretty much no upgrade path for a bit (b/c prety much, RAM might be the few things a laptop might allow an upgrade on), if you're really worried about space (of a tower). And likely you can also tie a monitor to the PC via HDMI or Displayport; and connect KB's and mice via USB ports on the laptop (if you're like me and not fond of laptop KB's/mousepads).
Better yet, you could buy a desktop w/ an actual tower...and just find somewhere to stick that. Make room for it; it's worth it. You might at least some upgrade paths and have a worthwhile GPU in there.
I mean, even some AA Indies like A Plague's Tale: Innocence didn't even run so hot on my 6GB GTX 1060 laptop with 1080p at 40-45fps.
And anyways, you should be able to find a 1080p60hz/fps monitor for a $100-150, if you ain't caring about Free-Sync or G-Sync.
This isn't much of a search or anything for what's going on for monitor deals and stuff - but for $100, I saw these for monitors on NewEgg at 24 inches at 1080p w/ FreeSync:
Samsung at 75hz 1080p for $100 - https://www.newegg.c...2-798-_-Product
Samsung at 144hz 1080p at $150 - https://www.newegg.c...2-761-_-Product
Syntax pointed out some few posts up the Microcenter deal on HP Omen with the 1660 Ti and 16GB of RAM:
Wow, that so isn't bad at all - especially w/ a solid CPU; good video card (and solid amount of VRAM!); and solid amount of RAM (16 GB) for $750. Then say add a $100-150 monitor with Free-Sync (or G-Sync, if you can find out that cheap - but I'd doubt that) and be good to go...especially if one doesn't care about Ray-Tracing; 1440p; and/or high-refresh rates on demanding titles.
For that kind of $ for 1080p60fps - that would be sweet; especially compared to the All-In-1 stuff.
