The PC MATE is a 4-true + 2-hybrid = 6 power phase, very low Max FSB, a mediocre Realtek LAN & only a type 1 M.2 slot MotherBoard.. What u pay for is what u get..

SSDs are only useful in loading the OS faster, they don't have any advantage in GAMING -- not a single FPS- See exact same FPS for both HDD & SSD..

One thing that I would definitely recommend is get the 390X in place of the 390 if u can afford it, about a 10 % boost in Frame-rates for about $80 more..

pcpartpicker Here ya go it is overclockable has a tier 1 psu and can take too 390x's without a new psu. The 390x is between the gtx 980 and gtx 980 ti for less than the 980 price point. It has my favorite case ever, along with a 24" ips monitor. The Windows can be had for $35 from eBay (http://m.ebay.com/itm/Windows-10-Pro-Full-version-32-64-Bits-Multilanguage-License-Key-Link-/141802988984?nav=SEARCH) happy gaming and happy building!
