That reads like a prebuilt not one your building.

The single stick of memory is a mistake and a very low end power supply for using a video card.
About the cheapest motherboard you can buy and nothing near enough storage for a gaming PC.

yeah, the only time i've seen that case is "PC Specialist" pre-builts.
have run into many of their customers complaining about subpar components and terrible customer service.
can you guys tell me if this is good or bad?
the case doesn't have the best airflow so you would want to add a few higher CFM fans.
plus a better CPU cooler than whatever "STANDARD CPU COOLER" probably means.
as previously stated;
a better power supply, motherboard, and a better memory option.
and if they're charging more than ~$5 for the static blue LED strip, let them keep it.

Best to go to a local computer store and talk to somebody.

Good at gaming don't tell us ANYTHING.

The question should be I want to play Game ABC at XXX FPS, on what res?
Don’t have a local computer store and I’m looking to run 140 FPS + on games like cod etc
