That is also my concern with Acer products in general. Thanks for the recommendation.

I tend to disagree, one time I had a 9300h 1050 nitro 5.....great cooling of cpu and gpu and had 0 issues....that being said sometimes cheaper doesnt always mean its cheap or garbage

I would second the cautionary note on Acer. Maybe they have improved in the past few years, but any we ever used in my small company never seemed to last very long. Though in fairness few did in our environment apart from some ancient Windows XP Dells which just refused to die even if they did get stupidly slow 😄
