i3 9100F
1660 Super 6gb
8gb DDR4 2400mhz ram
1tb 7200 RPM HDD

$699.99

And will the i3 bottleneck the 1660 super?

Does this come with a PSU, and peripherals? If yes, then it's a decent purchase.

As for the bottleneck, it depends on the game. Most modern games are still more graphics dependent.

PC builds.com says there is a 75% bottleneck on the processor.

If that is what you want; I would future proof it by getting 16Gb and I would not buy a machine without an SSD;

SSD for OS and data, spinning HDD for archiving, backups. JMO

Based on the bottleneck I think I'll settle for an Acer Nitro 5 with an I5 and 1050 gtx

I'll pass based on the bottleneck. Acer has a nitro 5 laptop with a i5 and and a gtx 1050 for about $750

that makes even less sense.

IIRC: a 1660super is about 3x as fast as a 1050.

laptop I would look for SSD, 16GB ram, and a ryzen 4000 series.

I thought the bottleneck would be severe, but YouTube is showing otherwise. I'll get the desktop.
