    Early Christmas present ! Already have 84mbps/94mbps been flying there. Looking for apps and others to fly ! Already thinking of more RAM take up to 32GB DDR4 3000 O.C. Although seen nice deal on DDR4 2400 16GB as machine only has 8GB.

    Yeah, meaning not reputable enough Intel 4th Generation Gaming PCs

    My knowledge is good enough to change what i feel needed, work with this, parts inside are known, better deal, better newer processor

    Decent buy, processor was better then other i listed, although ASUS makes good motherboards. So pro's are the processor, room for hardware upgrades and more fans, decent board uses DDR4 RAM instead of DDR3, decent CPU cooler and decent case.
    Cons being cheap SSD used, cheap generic PSU, not the best video card and case fans(not PWM) except CPU Fan and a integrated sound card.

    I basically did a lot of modification on it afterwards, now it's much better. Better and larger SSD (C: Drive), better Video Card, 3 PWM fans, better and more powerful PSU, Blu-Ray writer and i added a discrete sound card. Had keyboard and trackball from previous PC I use instead of ones came with it.

    thanks for the info jds63, your real world experience is pretty much what i expected from all my research - the power supplies are a korean which for some of those produced by that co. they have a good rep but the 600's they used in these apparently are having a higher failure rate and this co. seems to be using them in many of its products - others had reported they had no issues with the stock pwr supply - but I did read a few posts where they said there were no cables for hd expansion from the pwr supply - did you notice that as well?

    the specs on the 270 are fairly decent but lower power load card options from other vendors can do almost the same benchmark for half the wattage
    and for the same wattage you can nearly double its benchmark albeit at a $ 300 price point

    i think the biggest issue right off is that power supply

    there are a few of these still in market - w o o t even had them for sale a short time a while back
    i was looking at them around the time you bought yours - all things said it still seemed a good buy -
    thanks for all the real world feedback - the gigabyte mobo seems to be pretty good they put out a revision now that can handle faster ddr4 though - have you had any issues with the mobo specifically? did you run into a booting issue with usb devices plugged in?

    did you run into any issues with the card shutting down or crashing?

    DDR4? Since when was that a thing for motherboards?

    It won't show me the price so I can't comment on that, but otherwise, yeah, it seems alright.

    Pretty good specifications, but I would just build one if at all possible, or get someone (or a company) to build it to spec'. If you're a gamer, which I presume you are, try not to go too high with one or the other where graphics and the CPU are concerned. An FX-4100 paired up with an ASUS 760 OC, for example, is a crap match. (speaking from unfortunate past experience hah) An i5 4690k is awesome (not just saying that because I have it!) and would, I image, save you money to be used towards a slightly beefier GPU.

    Just be really careful when being these pre-built things. A typical thing I see a lot, is when companies make a computer look fancy (case) but actually have cheap, unreliable parts within. (such as a questionable PSU, low-feature micro-ATX motherboard, basic CPU cooler stunting overclocking potential and potentially causing heating issues, cheap RAM with ample amount, and a low-grade GPU) Might float your boat if you're majorly bargain-hunting and plan to get a better PSU (recommend it) but I would personally just forget it.

    A while back, I couldn't be bothered to build one up again, so I just went with a pre-built; t'was a stupid mistake, and an ill-thought-out one at that. (personally, not generally) I ended up with a "gaming rig" that wasn't even remotely a gaming rig, but a glorified office computer with a basic, silent, "HD-capable" GPU. The RAM was cheap and one DIMM on a board (also basic and if I recall correctly, micro-ATX) that supports 4. -_- Yeah, anyway, point is, be careful, ask the seller for the model numbers of each main part. (PSU, Case, PSU, RAM, GPU, etc) and look them up thoroughly.

    Never rush it like I did. Actually did that twice - was in a large city near me once and spontaneously bought an Acer computer, naively thinking I could just upgrade it, except the case and PSU was utterly crap for upgrading, and the whole thing would've been a complete waste of time, so I sold it on for less than I bought it!) Be smarter than I was. xD Thank God I eventually just said screw it and built a nice rig up, evolved it a bit, then later another, even nicer rig, which I'm currently using.

    Good luck. O7
