What the hell, only 128GB and a 1050? Yeah bro you got jipped. I got a laptop stronger than that for 1000$ and it came with a vr headset. You can always double check the pricing on your own on PC part picker. https://pcpartpicker.com/ Just enter in your components and see how much it would've cost building it yourself

You can build it for $250 less. But that isn't the end of the story - a lot of these parts you don't want at the prices you can buy these at. $200 for an 8400 is a poor bargain, a faster RX 570 can be had for a lot less than a GTX 1050, and the power supply is garbage at any price.

Something like this would be a better performer and safer than that $750 build.

This is about what a $1000 PC should look like. Now, people won't come up with the exact same $1000 system - people have different likes and make different choices - but this is in the neighborhood of what you ought to be getting at this dollar range.

The CPU is between 10-20% faster than yours in most scenarios and a 1660 Ti is more than twice as powerful as a non-TI 1050. A lot more storage, twice the RAM -- and I'm willing to bet faster RAM, though you did not specify -- better power supply, probably a higher-end motherboard.

If you can return, I'd strongly urge you do so.

Lol and that's with retailer windows OS. If you're really penny pinching uou can also risk it a little to save a few bucks and get a 10$ OEM key online and just install win10 with a USB.

Yes, this is the stuff that I was expecting to have with my 1000 dollar build but sadly, my father who bought the pc for me doesn't know anything about pc parts and stuff. And this pc had played with for about a year so I can't return it or so, so I slowly upgrading it
