It's an entry level computer that will do well at 1080p. You will soon run out of space on that tiny SSD though so you might as well buy an X TB secondary drive at the same time. Other than that it looks good for that price.

 

Oh, and this post should have been in the junkyard.

Personally I wouldn't go under 16gb ddr4 ram anymore. In fact, I'd rather go with 32gb now... just sucks that ram prices are crazy high right now.

Also yes, 250gb alone is not enough at all. I'm using one just for windows alone (and ofc all the temporary and savegame files that games nowadays create on c:/).

16GB (even 8GB) is more than enough for most people though

 

Also, Logitech mice over Razer any day. MX518 for life. I believe its current iteration is called G403.

Would agree that 16GB is enough for most people...but for people who like to do stuff with Cheat Engine, Photoshop, VMs, etc., alongside their gaming (as I do), 32GB is becoming more and more of a requirement.

Or if you like to play Star Citizen, then you *need* 32gb. The game is eating 16gb already just from starting it up. :>
