Is it possible to shuck the motherboard and cpu and memory?
I just bought a Rosewill server case and need these components only. Thanks.

Yes that is possible because it is a Desktop computer with standard components. But that will probably void the warranty.

Can anyone confirm if you can put a full length GPU in this case?

6 redundant pictures, none of the back, let alone the insides. Couldn't find any better images or descriptions even at acer's site.

The newegg reviews on this similar model are not pretty

"Is it possible to shuck the motherboard and cpu and memory?"

Most likely possible but probably not worth it, the cpu has gone for $170 recently, probably has a crappy motherboard worth $50, 8GB ram is $50 but not sure if it is 2x4GB with no slots open. From the newegg reviews I'm guessing the power supply is worthless and OEM cases aren't usually the nicest for swapping/adding components. I guess if you need a DVD drive, 1TB 7200rpm drive, a cheap kb/mouse, and a windows license it might come out less than the cost of components, but I would much rather have a decent name brand motherboard.

No need to check Newegg reviews for those details. It has single 8GB Ram and two slots. For storage, it has one M.2 Slot which supports PCIe NVMe SSD as well.

@Johnsonj, to answer your question, yes it supports standard length Graphics card and with the current PSU, it supports card up to GTX 1050 Ti.

I am not sure why it is not getting that much attention. This is a pretty solid Desktop and can be converted into a decent Gaming machine by just adding a GTX 1050 Ti Graphics card, without changing the PSU. Also, it is one of the few Desktops coming with 3 USB 3.1 GEN 2 Ports, two Type-A and one Type-C. So, adding Type-C GEN 2 SSD or USB Flash drives will be pretty easy and you will get the speed benefit.

Really good deal for someone looking for an everyday fill size desktop PC. Not really sure does doing that these days, though.

I'm not savvy re/ the Intel CPU lines. If I wanted to upgrade that i5 later on, what would be the fastest/most muscular CPU I could swap in? Mostly I'm doing photoshop work these days. TIA---

I7 8700 would be a drop in upgrade. Up to an i9 9000k MIGHT work, but you won't get most of the benefit from k series cups on this motherboard, doubly so with the included cooling. Your best upgrade for photoshop work will be a 2nd stick of 8gb ram (or a kit of 2 16gb sticks if you work on large/complex projects). This will not only give you additional RAM capacity, but speed as well, as 2 sticks work faster together in dual channel vs a single stick, even if the total amount is the same. And an m.2 ssd large enough for your current images and scratch disk space is a must. At least 250-500 Gigabytes

Interesting that link and the below look to be the exact same unless I'm missing something.

Thanks for that advice, greatly appreciated.

In the wake of holiday spending, I find I need some additional nudge to buy this, maybe a 10% or 15% ebay Bucks promotion...

Does anyone know how many watts this would consume if at idle?
