    There's this barebone with H370 motherboard (supports Desktop CPU) and GTX 1650 soldered for 600€ without CPU/RAM/HDD

    It has 2x NVMe slots which can be used for eGPU down the road, and screen can be upgraded with 144hz IPS 1080p later on too



    Parts:

    - Barebone w GTX 1650 - 600€
    - i5 9400 - 157€
    - DDR4 2666MHz 2x8 GB - 66€
    - SSD 512GB - 57€
    - 144hz 1080p IPS screen 90€ (sell original for 50€ on ebay) difference - 40€

    Total = 920€



    Future upgrades:

    - i9 9900
    - eGPU RTX 2080 Ti


    Is this good or nah for a laptop with NVMe and Desktop CPU?

    IT sounds good if you like to DIY but if that motherboard ever goes bad then, your're ****ed, replacing those motherboards aren't cheap and rare to find, so will not overclock nothing on it, Iv'e been in a similar situation and its not fun.

    but ideally a equivalent spec laptop with the same price as a desktop is a good deal, usually its double that. (IF ALL THINGS GOES WELL)

    900E can get you a 1660 TI laptop from what I've seen, so I'd check out other laptops first
