Description

This PC is meant to do some moderate multitasking, and some light gaming. The Intel HD 530 can easily achieve that. The case looks nice and everything runs quietly. There is no dedicated video card, but it will be very easy to get a 1060 or lower and put it right in. I play titles like CS:GO and League of Legends which don't need lots of horsepower to run. Overall I think this is an amazing build that is easily upgradable to run higher end titles. You might be asking about the 212 EVO with the 6500, I just chose it for aesthetics :P.

I got a new video card, which is the GTX 1060 6gb from MSI. It handles games like a beast and stays nearly silent. One problem is when I play Battlegrounds, it heats up my room pretty fast.

Part Reviews

CPU

Works great and handles everything I do very well

CPU Cooler

Silent and keeps my CPU cool. Also very easy to install.

Memory

Handles all my games very well

Storage

Great for loading windows and loading a couple games

Video Card

Great for ANY game you throw at it. Black and white color scheme is nice. Cooling and noise are very low.

Case

Great build quality and has a good 200mm fan that brings air in.

Mouse

Great buttons and usability, the Razer software is easy to use.

Headphones

Long cable, good quality. Only problem is the mesh cushion.

They're knockoff cherry mx blues, really loud. Might switch to a simple chiclet keyboard.
