That is much better than @deXxterlab97's

 

It features the Latest Kaby Lake CPU (faster than Skylake's i7-6700)and has an Extra 250GB with a 1050 2GB. That is if you want an exact copy of the Cosco one, but with better specs. I wouldn't recommend that build, but if you really wanted that set of specs its good. @deXxterlab97's had a better keyboard, but he failed to put Windows on there.  NVM

notice I said my most intensive games are those never said I play those 24/7... most of my play time is spent on dragon nest and silkroad

It doesn't matter how often you play them. If your system is designed to play BF1 and R6:Siege to a good degree, then that's not "light gaming".

 

Light gaming is a bit of LoL or Rocket League, and can run on lower hardware. The GTX 1050 is a fine choice. Put an RX 460 in there instead if you prefer an AMD solution.

Excellent build. You matched the 27" monitor, and you included a Legit Windows license and peripherals.

 

Now, if @EmHo doesn't actually need the 27" Monitor, or the compact form factor, this build can definitely be tweaked even more.

I agree. That Cosco build was a bit dumb all around. Like regardless of the cost it didn't make any sense. I'd could make a much better build without ANY reference to Cosco's.

I don't care about form factor, however I would like a large monitor.

Do you need a i7-7700? That is crazy high end and expensive. You could easily swap this build around and get something much better. Do you know how large 27"? Because its pretty big and it won't look the best at 1080P.

How big do you really want? 27" is quite large for a computer monitor, and at 1080p, you might find objects appear too large on screen. If you are dead set on 27", I would suggest a 1440p monitor instead.

 

However, I would first suggest that you check out 24" monitors - 1080p at 24" is still decent, and the size is quite large. If, after seeing a 24" monitor, and you still want 27", then that's totally fine.

The OP did say they were video editing. The extra HT might be useful for rendering the output. Still, an i5-7xxx series would still perform nicely.

BF1 and R6S is not light. 

R6S is relatively light for a triple A :P 

I mean I can get 180fps at 1080p with a RX470 if I wanted to...

However it eats vRAM like no tomorrow, like I'm running at high 1080p right now (so I get stable 120+FPS) with no AA and that nonsense and 3.8GB of vRAM utilised...hee hee


Looking at my signature are we now? Well too bad there's nothing here...
