In going with your intent (not being literal as above), it's a low end machine now in regards to gaming, but still probably better than 75% of Americans have.  It's better than the office machines most companies have for example.

For a gaming PC it's low end in my opinion, though that term and the ones related to it are not set in stone.

 

For example, some might consider the RTX 2070 mid range, while others would say it's high end.

 

Some would consider a system with a core 2 duo and GT 710 low end, and your system mid range.

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.Skill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed 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)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I'd consider it low end.  Heck, even my "new" build (to me), the one in my signature is considered low end to maybe low mid range in my own opinion.

CPU: AMD FX-8320 @ 4.3GHz       RAM: HyperX Fury 32GB DDR3

GPU: Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti 4GB             Keyboard: IBM XT Model F

I'm not going to hedge as much as others. I'd say that's firmly in the low end. I just did a $500 build with a Ryzen 3600, 16GB DDR4 3200Mhz, RX 560, and a 500GB NVMe M.2 SSD. That beats your system on every mark, quite substantially. Once you can do a $500 build, I'd say anything less is extremely low end.

I'd call it a low-mid end machine. My bar for that being modern games at 1080p 60 fps, mostly medium settings.

I'd disagree that your system wins on every mark, a GTX 1650 will run circles around an RX 560, although in every other category yes it gets absolutely thrashed.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Oh, geez. I read that as 1050, for some reason, which the 560 would beat. Yes, you're right, 1650 would be better.
