Value is decent enough for a prebuilt, especially if it comes with windows. If it were a proposed build then: PSU is overkill, more storage is needed, RAM is probably single channel and Ryzen loves faster RAM too, MSI AM4 motherboards are probably the worst overall for reliability and bios and consider that the 1500X is going to be superceded soon. The Razer mouse also has a bad rep for falling apart and the kb/m aren't from the same brand so for any customisation you'll probably need two sets of apps. But for a prebuilt/ 2nd hand it's OK and an order of magnitude better than most big brand prebuilts*.


*a skylake non k i7 and 16GB generic 2133 RAM on a custom MB, plus a 1030 and ExplodeMax™ 350W PSU for 4000 3500NZD? By Grabthar's Hammer, what a savings!
