I'm new to the forum, but I've been reading through a lot of the topics. It's been years since I bought a computer so I was looking for some help. I recently bought a Lenovo desktop as a BestBuy deal of the day:

 

Lenovo - Desktop - AMD FX-Series - 16GB Memory - 2TB Hard Drive

 

Processor: AMD FX-870K 

16GB DDR3 RAM

2TB HDD 

AMD Radeon R7 350 Dedicated 2GB

 

I know it doesn't have all of the highest specs, but do you think $450 was a good deal or could I get a better computer for around the same price? I haven't set it up yet and I'm still within the return period. 

 

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Sounds quite OK deal for $450.

Case and PSU are quite bad but that's always problem with OEM machines.

Not too bad considering you get the graphics included.  Like drillingmachine said, case and power supply are expected to be cheap, as is the processor.  You can get better hardware but less memory from Acer, then just add RAM as needed.

Doesn't look too bad, but as said above the case and power supply are rubbish.

For the GPU an R7 350 it's fine, and IMO the case if fine too. Not a bad deal at all, depending on what you will use the computer for.

Thanks for the replies. I ended up returning it and picking up a Dell XPS 8900 with the i7-6700. I got a great deal (less than $100 more) so I figured it would be worth it in the long run.
