I am looking to buy a pc that is around 1,000 dollars and I'm not sure what brand to go with. I was looking at the NZXT starter Pc Pro, but then I saw the LYNX. Would anybody be able to tell me which Pc would be better to spend 1,000 dollars on.

Hi First time owner,

I don't know what your use case is so I will list some differences between the two PCs.

The LYNX has a better CPU (Intel Core i7-9700F vs Intel Core i5-9400F on the Starter Pro). However, the Starter Pro has a better Video Card (GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1660 Ti OC 6GB vs GeForce GTX 1650 4GB on the Lynx Stage 2) and more RAM (16 gb vs 8 gb). From a 1080p gaming standpoint I would pick the PC with the better Video card as the other specs won't have as much of a direct impact on performance.

Performance aside, build quality is important too. I can't speak on other brand's build quality, but I can say from my experience Digital Storm has high build quality. My first Digital Storm PC (Marauder custom build) has been serving me for about 6 years. Even though I may be able to find a cheaper equivalent spec PC elsewhere, I value that their build has lasted me 6+ years so far. I actually just bought a new Lumos build from them a few days ago because of the new RTX 3080, so I still recommend them from a quality standpoint.

Hope this helps!
