alright thx ill probably get it now then upgrade in a month
Bit silly to buy the parts then immediately upgrade them. At 350 for the full system, it's not bad, especially if it's in a good case and with a good quality power supply. At 350 and another 150-200 to change the video card in a month not so much. The CPU matches the video card pretty well, if you start upgrading may as well just wait till you have the money for parts and build a new system for the 500-600 you will spend when upgrading.

What case?
What mobo?
What PSU?
Is it a GTX1060 or 1050?
so I kinda just bought it 😅😅 I didn’t see your message until after but I asked him he said he plays GTA an stuff fine on it. It’s definitely ITX mobo it’s small case but idk the name he didn’t provide the info ik it’s a 1050 tho. when I get home I can take a better look. I didn’t really think this through lol but we will see
 
Some of these items (Mobo, PSU, & GPU) are price place-holders, but you get the idea.

I agree with Hang-the-9 about the upgrades. Depending on how well you do parting out components you replace. Choose wisely.

Well like I said the parts are fine for the price, especially if they are good quality parts that cost more. The thing you need to keep in mind is that buying it and using it as is will get you the value you paid for it. Buying it with the idea of replacing parts right away is not a good use of the money, you may as well just start with the parts you want instead of buying a system then spending more money on faster parts.
