I built this machine for my cousin as he knew very little about computers. While this is not what I would do with $500 it is what he wanted. I would do a cheaper case and use that money elsewhere but the owner was very happy when this pc was built. He is planning on putting a graphics card into this build probably a rx480 but he is waiting until all of the new graphics card comes out. He is currently using the computer for some light gaming such as cs go and similar games. The build was a fun to do but again I would change a couple things if I was redoing it. Overall he was very happy with this computer so it worth it.
