Store 40ish miles away from Tampa shows 1 of one of those HP Omen PC's for $350.  I'd be tempted to make the trek but i'm literally 0 for 20 when it comes to PC related things where it shows low qty.

Since we're on sound bars lately, I grabbed this one for $54: https://brickseek.co...er?sku=52055511

Samsung HW-KM37 4.1 Channel 200W Soundbar System with 5.25" Wireless Subwoofer

The sub is a little weak, but it seems decent enough for $54. Hard to really complain when it's that cheap.

 

For what its worth I found one in Houston yesterday and hooked it up last night and Im stoked about it. Well worth the 54.

There’s some here for 1250 and a store about 45 mins away OOS for $250. Doubt I’d have any luck doing a return/rebuy though

they might give you crap about that. there was a store about 15miles from me that says it has 5 in stock at 350. went there and nothing. gave them the sku number and it doesnt even pop up in their system.

Stopped in this morning and found Lego Dimensions Goonies for $7 but still marked $15 and the Battle of Atlantis Aquaman Lego set for $5 marked $12.

My new opening Walmart has Xbox One X Scorpio on sale for $999.99. Is it rare?

Want to buy that i7 desktop, as it's $399 at a store near me, but I know it will drop lower. Are employees generally willing to adjust the price within the return period? Only tried once.

Brick seek code?

Kinda rare. Not $1000 rare. Probably not even $500 rare if it’s used.

For PCs on clearance, I have never had luck with them searching by SKU. For that, i also grab the upc code.That's how I managed to buy a clearance "gaming PC" (hp, I5, 8GB dr4, GTX 1060) for $250 in January.

As the person above me said, make sure to have them search for it using the UPC. I grabbed one of these last weekend, and they couldn't find it using the SKU, but were able to locate one in a bin location in the back using the UPC.

Thanks. One of the stores near me has that listed at $184. Worth checking out at that price, even if the quantity indicator is yellow.

Damn, that's a hell of a deal on it if they have any left. I got mine the day it went down to $399 and have been checking BS every day in case it drops lower so I can get a price adjustment. I haven't hooked it up yet, but the specs on it look great aside from it not including a discrete video card.

So with that 399.99 i7 HP.

 

Don't bother with it if you are thinking it would make a nice little gaming rig or anything useful.

 

After the nightmare of replacing the PSU in this tiny tiny case I could not fit a single fan 1060 in there.  I even measured beforehand but it was just too close.

 

You can snap out the CD drive easily enough.   Clearly it was meant for you to do this in order to install a card.

 

But the main board power connector is just too close.

 

I am going to try my luck at one of those tiny single fan 1050s that are 5.7 inches.  If anyone knows of a smaller graphics card let me know.

 

This was a complete time sink for what is going to amount to a backup computer!

 

Learn from my lesson dear CAG people.   Unless you are going to flip on ebay do NOT waste your time or money on these small HPs.

It's not great for gaming, sure, but it's a massive upgrade from my old desktop. I just need something to basically function as an internet box, and it's great for that. I do all my gaming on consoles.

 

I recommend this to anyone who needs a new desktop just for normal desktop use and doesn't plan to do heavy gaming on it.

Unless it has a discrete graphics card it is not meant for gaming. Simple as that. You can try and play games on integrated graphics, but it's gonna run like garbage.

It has an integrated 630 graphics card, which means you can play most games before 2015 fairly well. You can play Overwatch, LoL, Fortnite, and quite a few other games on low and still get 30-50fps. It's about the same as a Radeon R5. But the other parts are good. The i7-7700 runs for $304 on Newegg, then you get decent RAM and a 2TB HDD. It's just the stupidly small 8" x 8" custom mobo and 185w PSU that make it less of a deal at $399. But then again, you're probably not going to find a good gaming rig at Walmart.

You are so correct in calling in "stupidly small".  Getting a new PSU in there was a chore.

 

I am pretty sure that the one fan 1050 ti will fit in it though (With the Mobo this small I don't know if any other graphics cards that could possibly fit.) and it should be a decent backup editing/gaming computer after that.

 

Only positive is that this is the smallest personal computer I will ever own and it can easily travel if I ever need a desktop somewhere else?

 

Again I would not recommend this purchase at $399.

 

 

I found some really nice Bigmouth fake Ice cube LEDs on clearance for 1.50.  They glow pretty brightly when in liquid and will make some nice juvenile gelatinous cubes for D&D.

In situations like that you probably want to move the system to a new case. It's what I had to do for my Acer, which was too small to hold any reasonably priced graphics cards.

Nope.

 

It's the tiny motherboard that is the issue.  The main board power connector is too close to the PCI-E slot.  There is no way to fit 90% of graphics cards in there.  It has to be a super short one less than 6 inches.  Maybe if there is a single slot card?  But most cards are double slot nowadays.

 

I could get a new motherboard in addition to a case but I am exhausted with this project at this point and I will be happy to get a 1050 ti in there for a backup editing computer.

 

 

I am much happier with the clearanced out ice cube LEDs I bought.

You’d be surprised. There’s one of those HP omen towers with a 1070 that pops up for $299 on brickseek. Most places still have it $999-1270
