I use this machine for gaming and content creation. It works pretty well, stays fairly cool. It plays all my games at my desired settings at a buttery smooth 60+ fps. I will be upgrading it eventually with 16 GB of Ram, though. And maybe an i7.
After using this computer for about a week now, here's what I have to say: This PC is fairly well optimized in terms of price to performance. At $780 (without the microphone and sound card which are not necessary), this computer can handle basic 1080p video editing, has decent rendering times, can handle multitasking quite well, and plays most games at 1080p and high settings or better and achieve 60 fps. For example, The Crew runs at 60 fps on Ultra settings, Space Engineers runs around 50 (but I want my graphics settings on high, so if you turn down something, 60 is easily achievable), Minecraft (1.11.2 with KUDA Shader Pack and Optifine) runs at 55-60 fps with all settings maxed, depending upon the world type (amplified worlds run around 25-30). Keep in mind that I DID overclock the RX 470 from 1230 MHz to 1385 MHz, and boosted the RAM from 1600 MHz to 1950 MHz for an effective memory speed of 7.8 GHz!
The only limitation this PC has (if you're a content creator on a budget) is RAM. 8GB is barely enough to play games and record them simultaneously with a Chrome tab (or something else) open. I strongly suggest getting a 16 GB kit if you plan on making YouTube videos with this machine. I will be upgrading to 16 GB very soon. If you just want to play games, this machine is almost perfect as it is. Just buy an exhaust fan and you're good to go.
If you're worried about noise with the stock cooler, and the case fan, don't be! I used SpeedFan to control my fan speeds and I let them go as slow as they will while I do basic tasks like browsing the web. The loudest part in my computer is actually the hard drive, while the fans are running this slowly. The HDD trays in this case are not padded or anything, so any vibrations made by the hard drive do get slightly amplified by the case, so there's that.
System edit: I've purchased another 4GB of RAM, adjusted the clock speeds on the left to accurately reflect my maximum overclock. Edit 2: Added more fans, now MK 1.2
For it's price, it's a decent CPU. Smooth 1080p video editing, and great gaming performance when paired with an appropriate GPU. I've had no problems with this CPU, but I recommend getting a faster i5, like a 6600k.
In summary, it's pretty good. I like it.
This motherboard looks pretty nice, has basic overclocking functionality, M.2 SSD support, etc. If you're reading reviews, you probably read the specs, so I won't go over those.
The BIOS is at first a little bit confusing at first, but it doesn't take long to learn how to navigate. As a first time builder, the "Click BIOS" was a pretty neat feature, but I didn't really use my mouse. I prefer the keyboard for that. This board looks really nice, reinforced PCI-E slots give peace of mind, even though my graphics card is fairly light. The fan slots are a little bit... oddly placed, but if you route the cables right, you won't notice them.
It's memory. It looks nice, it's low-profile, and it works great. No issues. I'll be getting another one of these soon.
This is a fairly fast graphics card and I really like it. I managed to get mine to go 1385 MHz on the core, and 1950 MHz on the memory. 5/5 for great overclocking, great performance, good looks, and good price.
Edit: Do NOT buy this card for more than $200. This came about because I noticed the price tag on this card going higher than $170 all the way up to $299 then $399. It's not worth it.
This is a decent case. It looks fairly good, and I'm proud to have this sitting on my desk; however, the cable management is not very good. It barely fits my cables and all I have is the 24 pin Motherboard connector, 8 pin CPU power, 2 SATA power and data cables, and the PCI-E power connectors. Basic gaming computer cables. I had a hard time getting the side panel on despite my best efforts to neatly arrange the cables. It does fit everything, though, and there is no bulge on the side panel. The fan is fairly quiet at 100%, despite what others say, and it looks good. It moves a decent amount of air at 40-50% fan speed, and a LOT of air at 100%. I recommend this case for budget builders, but keep in mind you'll have to work harder on cable management.
Edit: I tried to remove the front panel with my optical drive in... I learned that you MUST remove any and all 5 1/4 inch drives/fan controllers before you can remove the front panel.
VERY quiet power supply, all black cables, and supplies more than enough wattage for the parts I have. I probably won't change the PSU in my build for years. Very good, runs cool, and I can't even hear it.
