To answer your first question, it's a solid deal. I have seen better ones during black friday this season with stronger GPUs, but a 2060 super is no slouch.https://www.bestbuy.com/site/ibuypower-gaming-desktop-intel-core-i7-9700f-16gb-memory-nvidia-geforce-rtx-2060-super-1tb-hdd-480gb-solid-state-drive-black/6362983.p?skuId=6362983
Can anyone tell me if this is a good deal? Especially if I don’t want to be bothered with building a PC?
Or am I going to still save a decent chunk of money building and getting better parts then what are in this one?
You won't really save much money doing it yourself, BUT you will definitely be able to invest in higher quality components.
The places that companies like ibuypower (who is one of the best prebuilt brands) make their profit on things like the power supply, motherboard, ram, the ssd, and pretty much anything that doesn't headline the build.
If you don't want to do the manual building of the pc, I have another route that I recommend because I did it myself with my newest rig. I ordered all the components one at a time, kept the receipts to prove that they were new, and took advantage of a store building it for me for a small cost.
I paid Fry's electronics 70 bucks to put it all together and got both the high quality of parts as well as professional grade bulid quality when it came to things like cable management and installation. I'll probably do that from now on because building gives me way more anxiety than joy.
