    "no joke...good pc...Works fully with school assignments and powerpoints....Going from an i5 4460 and a GTX 750 to this was a fantastic experience, I went to barely getting about 40 frames in Rainbow Six Siege on the lowest settings to 140+ with almost everything on high and it runs brand new games like Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 at 100+ frames with very slight tweaking."

    "Great PC...Great cpu...I don't think anybody would be looking at this for serious gaming, but you can dabble in some gaming in what would be better described as a good back to school/multi-media PC....The wifi is okay for browsing or having the desktop above the desk or in the open but, as I found out with my setup, even if the desktop is only feet away from the router under a desk, there is a chance for it to severely slow down (hard wiring is what I did and would recommend)."
