Lenovo IdeaCentre 720 Review
I saw this exact same system listed on Newegg as a “gaming” so I searched for it on Amazon and found that it would be cheaper to order it from Amazon because this seller was not charging the 10% TN sales tax.
That being said, this is NOT a gaming PC and it makes no claim to be one on Amazon compared to the same system on Newegg.
There are only 2 ram slots… only 2 PCIE slots and it uses a lame propritery PSU that uses 10 or 12 pins instead of the 24 you would find with an off the shelf ATX PSU. So even if you waned to add a second video card to CrossFire, you probably would not have the ability with the limited PSU in this system.
To be fair, I tried piecing together a similar build with the Ryzen 2600, 16gb of ram, a mid-range gaming motherboard, a PSU, and came out to roughly the same price point minus hard drive and OS. So that at least makes the price of the system halfway decent. Just don’t expect to bump this puppy up beyond 32Gb of ram or increase the GPU performance by CrossFire or even putting a higher-end card in here.
I would say that my disappointment is mostly my fault for considering this to be a gaming PC based off the listing of another site. I just don’t understand why so many PC manufacturers are cutting corners by not including 2 extra ram slots because they can’t cost that much
