It's that obvious
Inconceivable!

Mediocre selection

One can look at the PC he bought here. A few questions / observations:

  1. Why is he buying a six-core CPU in late 2020? We have 8, 10, 12, 16-core options that will last much longer.
  2. 8 GB RAM!? 16 minimum.
  3. 500 GB SSD? Considering that this a big dumb gamer PC, games will eat up space fast in the next few months. 1 TB minimum.
  4. GTX 1660? This graphics card came out in early 2019. Nvidia just released the GTX 3000 series. A GTX 3080 would have been a better option.

My PC is over three years old. I have a higher-core CPU, more RAM, and a larger SSD. Yet, this guy is still impressed with his bizarre PC choice. A newer and well-balanced computer would have been truly awesome.

Last question: How is this guy is a tech columnist for the New York Times!? It's not like he couldn't spare a few hundred bucks for a bigger dumber gamer PC.
