No good points. The PC did not work.
Consider testing the PC before selling it?

Good looking (i like those leds on it) and not too bad performance in games also room for future expansions.
No DVD or place for it on this pc.

I love the performance of the pc, it works incredibly smoothly and has nice storage sizes for my needs. It can play games at high resolutions well, and the design overall is very nice. I feel that the LED on the front is a great feature with several colour and light up options.
Firstly, as of components, i'd say the RAM size could be 16GB rather than 8GB, although this can be easily upgraded.

Perhaps be cautious for any faults. I was unlucky to have a part that was faulty, although when i contacted support, i was able to receive an exchange and the delivery service was really helpful. It was a long wait to get to my house (still my experience) but once i had the right thing, it was more than worth it!

It looks fantastic and led lights are brill
Software issues kept switching itself off and not allowing you to turn back on without unplugging from socket. It also kept crashing during games and taking you back to log in screen. Too many faults
