Sorry if this is the wrong place to post. With the basic Lynx build, what games can I expect to play? How will Escape for Tarnov run? What about Warzone.

Welcome to our Forum. This is the best place to ask your question!

The Lynx 1 (let's call it), will meet or exceed the recommended specs for just about any game out there. Don't expect great performance on more than a 1080p monitor (1920x1080), but the 1650 is a decent card.

For another $100, the Lynx 2 brings two things to the table. You get a much faster and larger NVMe SSD for your primary drive. The Lynx 1 has a 240GB SATA SSD which is about 3 times slower. In addition, and more importantly, the GTX 1660 is just flat-out better. By 44% says UserBenchmark:

You will lose the 2TB mechanical hard drive with the Lynx 2, but it may be worth it to you. More storage is pretty easy to buy online and install yourself. Look at some You Tubes to see for yourself. I'd recommend you look at SATA SSDs rather than mechanical ones for their speed and lack of moving parts, but up to you.

Just my thoughts.
