So I bought this prebuilt last year for the non-computer savvy people in my family. I added the SSD as I had it on the side. The prebuilt is running on a generic prebuild 400w PSU (that isn't a brand? named PSU), it's processor is an AMD FX 6300, Mobo is a Micro-ATX Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3, and a ADATA 1x8GB memory stick.
Whenever my nephews come over they also too play it a lot. I've considered upgrading soon but I was just curious if this build would suffice? (I will upgrade the GPU at a later time, maybe when 1050 Ti's go down a bit in price?) It also has 2 case fans but I don't know what they specifically are.
I'm just not sure if the B150 motherboard is the right choice. Or if H170/H110 etc. is better value. I don't think I'll add anything else after this upgrade anyway. The only viable thing I possibly could add is another HDD/SSD. But if you guys think the B150 isn't the right choice, let me know.
This will be used for casual internet browsing, gaming around weekend time, and homework/school.
Possible games list my nephews will probably play: H1z1, CSGO, Dota 2, Roblox?, Ark Survival, Dead by Daylight, Left 4 Dead 2, TF2, Minecraft?, Undertale, Overwatch (possibly in the future), Rainbow Six Siege, Five Nightse at Freddy's stuff, other casual F2P games. (I have steam family share)

[Edit] Forgot to say I also prefer easy motherboard bios options if possible? If that's even something to consider
