Hi,

I am looking at getting the PC and I would like your opinion before I pull the trigger. I live in the US. I plan on using for games such as league, and some AAA games.

Here, this is what I got. I hope a mid-tower case isn't much of a bother. If you really want a smaller case, I am sure I can locate something.

WAY too much for that PSU. WAY WAY too much for that SSD. That CPU is locked so a aftermarket cooler is a huge waste Also that AIO is of bad value.

I saved over $100. Got a unlocked CPU, a much much bigger SSD, and got a HDD for mass storage.
