Picked this up a few weeks ago and put a 256 Samsung 850 Evo SSD in it and it's great so far. The machine is super snappy and will likely do anything I need it to (Visual Studio, Photoshop, Plex, etc.) while not breaking the bank.

Does it come with recovery media? How did you transfer your OS to the new SSD? Thanks!

I cloned the original drive to a Samsung SSD using the latest Samsung software that works with Windows 10. You can recover from the original HD, the media is on the HD.

How would this do with light gaming? Would this plays Sims without issues? Kids not happy with the old Vista machine! Thanks

The integrated graphics in this are rated fairly high (for integrated graphics), so it would probably play Sims without a problem. Some people are also putting in a GTX 750ti video card as an option since that card is a nice upgrade and will work with the existing power supply.

I picked one of these up a few days ago, and also put a Samsung SSD in it. The Samsung cloning software was very easy to use.

And just chatted with Amazon to get the price adjusted. Thanks OP.

If you want to run Sims 4, the integrated GPU might not be the best way to go. It will probably run at medium - low settings. I'd strongly suggest investing extra 80-100 and getting a dedicated GPU.

Can you upgrade the power supply to say a 350W one and then add a graphics card (like a GTX 960) on this one to make it a gaming PC?

My kids play Sims 4 all the time with high graphics settings on a similar i5-4460 Dell Inspiron 3847 (http://www.dell.com/us/p/inspiron...47-desktop) with Intel 4500 integrated graphics. A entry level card under $100 would be better but it works as is.

Yeah, no issues with replacing the power supply in this. My 650 ti fit fine inside so I think a 960 would have plenty of room.

Don't know what to say. It works, just verified the settings. My daughter plays Sims 4 on that computer more than anything else and has since we got the computer last year. Most in game options are set to high, a few medium and running full screen 1920x1080, probably a choice from a preset choice of options. I don't play the game myself. It is an Intel HD 4600

I have no idea how the 4600 integrated video chipset in this Asus compares, it may be totally different. Like you said, spend $80-100 on something else if it doesn't.
