This is my first gaming PC and the first desktop I've purchased since the early 2000's. I recently got back into gaming on a console with my 9-year old son, and after watching all the pros on Twitch, I got the bug to get a PC for gaming. I first looked at pre-built PCs, then began looking at all the components to see if I could build one cheaper. While I would have enjoyed building my own, I work 40+ hours per week and have 4 small kids at home, and I realized in the end I would likely spend more money building my own and it would take too long for me to complete, based on my limited extra time.
When I saw this PC on Wal-Mart, it seemed like a good deal, so I began to research each component others have detailed in other reviews. The performance specs of the AMD cpu and gpu impressed me, and the fact that you get 3 free games was the icing. I could not find another pre-built PC with this combination of components in the same price range. Anything close in price was always lacking in some area.
To complement this PC, I purchased a ViewSonic XG2402 24" 1080p monitor with 144 Hz refresh rate and FreeSync. Since I don't have a large PC game collection, so far I've only played Fortnite (on present Epic settings) and was hitting ~120fps with a 10ms ping. I did have to play with the display settings to get FreeSync enabled on the PC and monitor, but other than that all performance settings were kept at factory presets. With no applications running, the gpu temp was around 35 degrees C. While playing the gpu temp got up to around 80 degrees C before I noticed. I pulled the front cover off and the temp came back down. As others have pointed out, the front cover does seem to be lacking adequate ventilation. The front cover has a solid front with air grates at the top and bottom. I will likely add a 2nd fan to the front as others have suggested at some point, but for now I can remove the front cover when the temp rises. And a tip about the LED lights. If you want to change the color there is a small button on the top front of the tower. It is right next to another button that has an "R" that is for reset (I think). Also, I thought the keyboard had lighting under the keys, but it does not. Not a big deal, but I spent a minute looking for the light button, only to realize it did not light up. But the keyboard and the mouse are of good quality, so I see no reason they would need to be replaced or upgraded.
The AMD software installed is awesome. Again, this is my first gaming PC, so I had no specific expectations. But what this software allows you to do from streaming to performance monitoring is pretty cool.
If you want to know specifics about all the components, there are some really good reviews on here that detail that information. If you want to know if this a good option for a casual gamer, you absolutely cannot go wrong.
