The MSI Infinite A 8RC-459US gaming desktop is down to $749.99 at Newegg thanks to a price drop from $1,100 to $769.99 and an extra $20 off with the code EMCTUUA69. This deal also comes with a free Fortnite bundle that includes skins, unique gear, and other cosmetics and is regularly valued at around $45. If you're interested in playing the most popular game in the world, then this is the computer to get you to do it.
If you're willing to go through the hassle of the mail-in rebate, MSI will refund another $100 off the purchase, effectively making this entire computer $649.99. Claiming the rebate card involves following the instructions here. You'll be going to the MSI Rebate site, entering the promotion number for this product (87163), filling out the forms, including the original UPC barcode from the product box, throwing in the sales receipt or packing slip as well, and mailing all of it in. It will take many weeks to process and get back to you. Those are some hoops to jump through, but the benefit may outweigh the inconvenience.
The specifications on the computer include an Intel Core i5-8400 2.80 GHz processor, 8GB DDR4 RAM, a 2TB hard drive, a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 3GB graphics card, the Windows 10 Home operating system, and more. The front panel ports include one USB 3.1 port, two USB 2.0 ports, and audio jacks. You'll get five more USB ports on the back, with three of those being USB 3.1, along with two for HDMI, two for DisplayPorts, and one DVI-D. It comes with a mouse and keyboard as well.
Really, all you need to get started with this computer is a good monitor, so it's convenient that we've already seen at least one solid deal on a 24-inch 1080p screen today. I would also recommend adding a solid state drive to the build. They are easy to install and the speed difference from a traditional hard drive is totally worth it.
