On the assumption this isn't an SEO-focused Ad, what do you want to do with the computer?

Nope not an ad. Although that's probably what a bot would say.... Hmmm sorry I'm functioning slowly today due to the recent legalization here in Canada. I would like to use it for light gaming. Rocket League, Ck2, Overwatch, a whole steam library (200+) that I haven't touched yet due to sales and not having a pc at the moment. Nothing super demanding and I would like the possibility to upgrade in the future.

 

I had my old pc sent to me from Ireland but FedEx kicked the sh**te out of it so now I'm looking for something basic to play online with my buddies back home.

I feel like the i5 machine is a better value, because it's possible they went crazy cheap on the AM4 motherboard for the other one and got an a320


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 threadSeasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I think I have some mental block against Acer as I have been burnt by them before but this offer was super tempting. I'm looking for more of a basic gaming rig to have as a base for further upgrading. Thanks for the input buddy, it helped me.

2nd one. Probably want to add another 8 Gb of memory at some point.

The 2nd one. I see that the second pc is better. RX480 vs Vega 11. Pfff. It's obvious the RX480. And the i5-7400 is good.
