    My girlfriend's birthday present.

    Ah yes, buying gifts, the ultimate con. Go be jaded somewhere else.

    (New to desktops and can't build one) need help

    Not a terrible deal, but there's really nothing to be afraid of, and the real waste of money is paying someone to insert a CPU.

    (New to desktops and can't build one) need help

    If you're going to upgrade a bunch of the parts, what's stopping you from building?

    OEM to upgrade psu

    A picture would be pretty good. I believe any Corsair SF power supply will have 2 or 3.

    should I put new thermal past on my cpu

    If you remove the cooler, I recommend putting fresh paste on to avoid air bubbles.

    Recomend MATX motherboard

    If you're gonna upgrade to a non-K i7 later on, your price point accommodates a nice H370 motherboard.

    Noise Cancelling Monitor? How Even??

    Interesting, I was in the market for a 144Hz 1440p monitor, and I do like gigabyte stuff quite a bit, so I'll have to see if this is the right monitor for me.

    550W PSU Suggestions

    Bitfenix Formula gold 450w would be a great pick for you.

    Where can I save money on my PC build?

    eBay, or otherwise used, graphics card is always the first step in saving money. Great value for the same performance. Step down to the 2600, it can be overclocked later if you so choose, and right now it's the value king. A 250GB SSD now and a large hard drive later does wonders for saving money. Lower wattage power supply, like 450 watts, works well for you. Still gives you lots of room to upgrade, see my sig for a power draw point of reference. Consider a CX450M. If it's still over budget, an RX570 isn't so bad.

    First tower help!!!!

    Oh yeah, that part list would all work out of box. PCPartPicker.com has a built in compatibility filter, so you'd have to disable it to put parts together that don't work. The PC case has glass so if that's something you were worried about it can be changed.

    Buying used PC

    That prebuilt wouldn't be worth it for that price. Trust me, learning how to build a PC is pretty easy, and there is a wealth of guides online for you. You'd really be willing to pay $200 for the system to be built for you? I'd say if you couldn't get this PC for $450 then it's not money well spent.

    First tower help!!!!

    well thankfully building a PC doesn't require the precision of something that small, for the most part. I can make a new parts list that would be a lot easier to work with, how good are you with a screwdriver? That would be the only challenging thing.

    First tower help!!!!

    Are we talking generally clumsy or are we talking parkinsons or something? Even still, a friend to help out wouldn't be so bad, and with one person building, a pair of extra hands, even shaky hands, are useful.
  14. Found the problem. All of the games you listed are modern AAA titles, they want more than a mere quad core.

    Buying used PC

    Overall it's a cheap PC, FX is not a great CPU line but for light gaming this PC can handle it. Only thing is you're locking yourself in to an old platform when you can get this: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant Type Item Price CPU AMD - Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz 6-Core Processor $164.99 @ Amazon Motherboard MSI - B450 TOMAHAWK ATX AM4 Motherboard $114.89 @ OutletPC Memory Corsair - Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory $109.99 @ Amazon Storage Inland - Professional 120 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive $19.99 @ Amazon Video Card Sapphire - Radeon RX 570 8 GB PULSE Video Card $119.99 @ Amazon Case Deepcool - TESSERACT BF ATX Mid Tower Case $40.98 @ Newegg Power Supply Corsair - CXM (2015) 450 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply $34.99 @ Newegg Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total (before mail-in rebates) $645.82 Mail-in rebates -$40.00 Total $605.82 Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-02-18 14:34 EST-0500 So yeah that PC is worth like $350, maybe $400.
