Description

Prices are in AUD

Use: Gaming, streaming, basic video editing, multimedia and work.

PC is dead silent even during benchmarking using MSI Afterburner.

Runs eSports titles like Overwatch and League of Legends on ultra settings at a minimum 105FPS to 144FPS (capped). Civilization 6 on maximum settings runs smoothly on the highest settings. Temperatures range from under 30° C idle to 41° C for LoL, Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars and up to the 60s° C playing CIV6.

The addition of a second monitor hasn't impacted performance. Only issue so far is that the GPU only comes with a single HDMI port.

Overall, probably a bit overkill for what I'm currently using it for but it should serve me well for a long time.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

Simple to install and very silent even under load. LED lights were a nice touch. Would definitely recommend.

Motherboard

BIOS is easy to navigate and it's loaded with ports.

Storage

Great value for money SSD.

Video Card

Excellent 1060 card for those on a budget. No lights and a single HDMI port is a bummer but it runs silently enough that you forget it's even there.

Case

Great case, great airflow and quiet fans. The finish may feel cheap for some people but it's good value for money.
