..and I took a fave game's "recommended" specs, and compared them to this PC I'll show you the specs on below.

If someone (s) could give me feedback/opinions on the PC I would so appreciate it. I am shopping according to the games "recommended" specs because it makes sense to me to go with that since it doesn't make any difference in the price of their game. I am just trusting the teks know how the game will best run. But I am a beginner at spend more on a PC for more specifically, gaming.

Again, appreciate any help, gg

Here's my snip comparison between PC I like & game spec.:

These sorts of sellers often sell mediocre products. The one component of significant concern is the PSU.

An unknown 600w "gold" PSU is potentially a problem. Knowing the make/model of that component would be very useful in making a full assessment of this system.

On paper, should perform okay. PSUs are something you should not cheap out on. Think of this as the heart of the PC and you don't want that to fail (often with catastrophic consequences).

Ok, the price is something I figured for my absolute bottom-line budget, so I can't go higher. I appreciate your feedback very much, and thank you, gg

Do you have aversions to building your own system?
No, in fact some friends on my Discord gamer's channel just suggested it. I've done a few things with my PC I have, like put in a SSD drive, and more RAM. Not a lot I know, I'm better with Software ;) I do have the tools though already, and now know not to ever drop a teenie screw in the PC :oops::blush:

Be sure to state your budget. I'm sure you'll get excellent recommendations for a solid build to more than meet your needs.

Thank you @Why_Me. I'll keep this info, and will come back and let folks know what I decided on. For now, I'm going to play on the PC I have, and take my time considering what I might do for a new PC :) thank you again, gg
