Hey everyone! This is going to be my first pc and I need input cos I am a rookie in this field. I found a used deal for an intel core i5-6500, zotac nvidia gtx 1060 6gb, biostar H110MH Pro D4 mobo and a kingston ddr4-2133 1x16gb ram all for a total of USD$357. So I would like what do you guys think of this deal and whether shld i get it or keep hunting.

Yeah that's not bad.

Kind of a shitty motherboard, and you basically have an i3, but you get a decent video card.

Motherboard is garbage, but the processor is ok, the RAM is solid and the GPU is good. I'd try and talk it down a little more to $330 or so just to milk the last little drops of value out, but it's not a bad deal as-is.

Sincerely,

H110 boards are fine, it's just Biostar that's the problem. AsRock, ASUS, MSI and Gigabyte 100-chipset boards were all solid, IIRC.

This is not a system that should be upgraded. The gpu is good, but everything else listed is dated.

So brob, could you give me an estimate of how long more a system like this would last?

Not really. It all depends on how it is used. If you are just doing class work, browsing, and the like it will do a decent job for many years. With judicious settings, it will be fine for gaming. But as your sophistication grows and new games emerge that take advantage of new tech, gaming satisfaction will decrease.
