So I'm most definitely a noob with custom pc's, and definitely not a hardcore gamer. But I have been getting into it a little more with my boys as they've gotten older. My refurb old gen i7 with a geforce 1060 just died and I'm looking for something new, but not too crazy. Something $1000-$1500. I'm curious if I could get some reviews on this and suggestions for something better if this is overpriced or overkill. Also using this as the main pc for the wife and I. TIA

@Radtech81951 there's some obvious redflags with that prebuilt as in no mention of the make & model of the psu and motherboard not to mention that case is below par to say the least. If you don't want to mess with building your own PC which is easy as pie these days with all the youtube vids along with tech boards such as this one you can call around to local mom & pop PC / laptop repair shops and find out how much they will charge to put it together for you after you order the components yourself so you know exactly what you are getting. If you can hold on until April the new Nvidia RTX 4060 and 4070 video cards will be released.

Something like this would make a bang up gaming PC at 1080P.

LIAN LI LANCOOL 216 ARGB ATX Mid Tower Computer Case $109.99
Corsair RM650x (2021) 650W 80+ Gold Modular Power Supply $104.99

Expect this board to be available in North America within the next few weeks.

Gigabyte B760 GAMING X AX $159.99

Intel Core i5-13400F $209.96

DeepCool AG500 BK ARGB CPU Cooler $39.98

TEAMGROUP T-Force Vulcan DDR5-5600 32GB (2x16 GB) CL36 $113.99
Crucial P3 2TB M.2 PCIe Gen3 NVMe SSD $119.99
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 $400 if I had to guess

Total: $1258.89
GIGABYTE G24F 2- 24" 165Hz/180Hz(OC) 1080P IPS HDR FreeSync Premium Gaming Monitor $159.99

A better look at those components.
