    Hello there i've considering buying a gaming pc, but have found this gaming rig, its a gaming pc in this form, it can also be upgraded, should i get this?
    is a gaming pc in a console form good or bad?
    it's similar to the steam machine

    I wouldn't trust the cooling capabilities of that - it looks too small and cramped to give good airflow.. It might be upgradeable but what would be the point if it cannot properly cool an i7 or another GPU? Its probably cheaper too to build your own system - £904 will go a long way. You could build a pretty solid Ryzen based system for considerably less than that.

    The mid tower gaming PC's are much better from CyberPowerPC since airflow would be much better reducing the chance of the PC over heating in the long run.

    This is the biggest reason I don 't think I'll ever be buying another gaming laptop in the future and will only be sticking to proper PC with adequate cooling for gaming and a non gaming (light gaming) laptop dedicated as my workstation since working on the laptop is pretty much the same as working on a PC with UPS backup (power/speed) plus it's mobile.

    The parts including cooling can be easily replaced if the future if needed on the mid tower gaming PC's from CyberPowerPC, all you need is a friend/family member who has some experience on replacing PC parts.

    The specs of the mid tower gaming PC are nearly identical to mini gaming console PC you have in the link above and can be customized per order:
