After about a year of use and about half of that with a very light over clock to the A10-9700, I can say that it is pretty reliable. I use it to play games on medium if not low settings between 60-30 fps. I did have a issue with the motherboard not having enough ports to plug in all my fans (4 including CPU) so I had to get a splitter adapter for it. The only other issue I had is that after installing all the drivers and updating the motherboard BIOS Windows didn't recognize the speakers on the monitor through HDMI on start up but after putting it in to sleep mode and then awaking it up it would recognize it, so I just got some speakers aside. But aside from those two things and honesty the case looking pretty cheap, it ended up being a pretty good build for my needs and budget. I found that it was a really entertaining experience building this PC and will definitely recommend building your own rig then buying a pre-build.
