When economy is limited and knowledge is short.

I bought this just over a year ago on Black Friday 2018 and I didn’t know what to buy or what different parts did what do I bought a terrible pc for around 1000 usd from Lenovo. I have a core i5-8400, a 1060 gpu, 8gb ram (16 max), only exhaust airflow, very lame case with >*[RED]*< as the only lighting option... I also have a monitor from Lenovo for around 200 usd which is 1080p and supposedly 60hz but it reaches 75hz. The only good things about my system is: 1. It has a robust handle. 2. Cable management. Worst part of all is the lack of upgrading available. 
Oh, also... the newer model has an i5-9400 with an RTX 2060 for like 1100 usd. It was around 850 usd on Black Friday. I regret not building my own or doing research... thank you for coming to my half past 11 ted talk

That's so you can blissfully not know what each one does, because why would a builder need context clues?
