Whats a Desktop Deal:

There are many factors you need to take into account in order to make something a deal. Manufacturer, Product line, Specs and warranty are usually what to look at when figuring that out. You need to consider prices as well, sometimes you get a price so hot that it doesn't matter what company it is.

Generally speaking here are the guidelines for Intel processors:

i3 8th Gen processor - Under $300 is usually a hot deal, Under $350 is decent
i5 8th Gen Processor - Under $400 is a Usually a Hot Deal
i7 8th Gen Processor - Under $600 is a Usually Hot Deal

You're correct. It does have VGA and HDMI
Is it a good deal?

I think DH can hook you up with much better specs for that price. Also for dual screens you might have better results buying a dual HDMI video cards for ~$20

For graphics I would say it's necessary. However I have the whole office here on VGA + HDMI setup and I haven't heard any complaints as its really used for multiple browser windows and that's it.

I most certainly can...

VGA and HDMI are sufficient most of the time.

Cyberpower has really really bad reviews especially when it comes to warranty

It was $499. It's gone up to $599 now. At $499 I thought it to be a very good deal.

If you see a good deal on a small (~40GB) SSD please let me know.

TIA!

Doesn't matter, OS grows after a while. Windows installs updates, hotfixes etc

Trust me 60GB doesn't store as much as you think.. OS + Basic Updates + Paging Files and its almost full. Keep in mind very often drives slow down when they are almost filled to capacity
