I'm new here and I haven't had a pc since 2013... use s laptop.... but mostly just my phone these days.
I miss my tower...PC.
So I'm thinking of buying one. I definitely want a hard wired DVD reader. I'm not a gamer but I need a good monitor and video card.
Your list above looks good to me. What is the cost with a very good monitor, dvd/cd reader, lots of USB space and shipping to v4t1b5 in bc Canada?

This thread hasn't been updated in quite a while and the hardware there are outdated.

If it's not for gaming, what's the intended use?

I'm old and like the feel of a normal size keyboard an good sized monitor and the feature of having a dvd/cd reader hardwired into the pc tower.... like my old pc that I gave away 7 years ago sad to say. I've been using a laptop my wife and I bought about 7 years ago at Best Buy. I have an external DVD reader for it that I bought at time we bought that laptop. I find the laptop is slow and storage is not sufficient. We have two external hard drives as well. Use the laptop mainly for email photos and home DVD movies.
