Saw this and thought this was a good time for my first post ever after being a long time browser
And my bad i forgot to say the 1050 ti is 4 gb in the title


I saw another $599 system with a I5 6400 and a 1060 3gb and figured this was a little better processor wise but a little lower GFX card wise for the same price, but of course YMMV

Because someone doesn't want others to see this. It's a great deal. Brand new, very fast processor.

I've been thinking about buying a sort of low-end desktop and replacing some parts to make it higher performance, but with this deal, you pretty much don't need to do anything except add a SSD if that's your thing, or add another 8GB RAM. I think I might get this, thanks OP!

Looks like a good deal to me. The case has plenty of room to add extra drives. Includes 400 W supply.
Plenty of stock in MA.

Unfortunately the biggest improvement from i5-6400 to i5-7500 is the iGPU, which you won't be using.

And so many USB 3 Type A, but not a single Type C.... Asrock needs to catch up.

Not a bad deal, but when they're the same price I'd recommend the 1060.

True. But it looks like a 15% improvement over the 6400. Not shabby. I don't have any devices that need Type C yet, so that doesn't concern me much. Can always add that later if it becomes necessary.

You can actually get Kaby Lakes cheaper than HasWells at the moment with some of the deals out there.

It's not bad for someone who isn't into AAA games. but for anyone who is, this isn't a good deal - because it locks you up. your money is locked up in a noisy/weak HSF, slow HDD, weak PSU, and lightweight case.so... if you are just CS:GO or something like that, and you don't ever plan to upgrade, great! you can slap a $40 ssd somewhere down the line (ask any of us for help on how), add a bit more ram if you have the money for it, and you're fine for several years.

but if you're thinking to upgrade this, don't.

Doubt the stock HSF is noisy since chips nowadays from Intel runs cool and this can't be overclocked right? Quality PSU are super cheap nowadays that one can always grab one along with their graphics card upgrade if needed. The weak 1TB hard drive is perfect for a storage drive after adding a cheap SSD for the boot drive which are also super cheap nowadays. Not a bad deal at all.

No they aren't. Reputable PSUs cost about the same as they did 8 years ago. If you're finding a cheap PSU that you don't factor as a cost in an upgrade, its probably not a good PSU.

This is the normal price for that, not a sale.
