I needed a sub $1,100 computer complete with monitor and OS. I had a few coupons and sales that pushed the price even lower than 1,100. I play a few recent fps type games, but I don't need the beefiest GPU. Everything I play (Arkham Knight, Skyrim, Mordor, etc.) runs smooth, 60+ fps.
I plan on upgrading as I go. More ram. Additional HDD and SDDs. The case is great.
With the motherboard, the reviews are almost all negative about the wifi adapter antennae. Installation is easy once you realize what you have to do. And they snap secure enough to not come apart during the rest of the build.
This was my first build. Everything went together easy and works great. This was by far the fastest installation of Windows I've ever seen. It seemed like it was completely installed in under two minutes. Just surprising what faster (than I'm used to) parts can do.
