This review is for the Model 171. : Budget Line i7 GTX 1060 Gaming PC. Ordered it online and it took about 2 weeks to arrive. Came well packaged in an unmarked brown box. I did a lot of research into gaming PCs and settled on this one because this company had positive reviews and the price was good. Considered buying on ebay but I've had bad experiences with shady sellers on that platform, so decided to go another route. I picked the GTX 1060 graphics card - this is a good mid-range graphics card from the research I've done, and can play all of the games I'm interested in. Its a bit older model but still holds up well, and is hundreds less than the newest model GPU. I also definitely wanted the i7 processor for better performance. I upgraded to 16gb of ram which helps with gameplay, especially graphics intensive titles. The computer comes in a Dell Optiplex case which had some wear and scratches on it but not terrible. I was not interested in the RGB fan model as this is under my desk anyway. I had no trouble setting it up and installing various programs. I've been playing League of Legends semi-competitively and this was able to handle it without problems. I also play Call of Duty and Apex Legends. I achieved good performance on both games, and ran benchmark tests on both. After some adjustment of the graphics settings I was running over 100 frames per second with high graphics settings for both games. I also tested it with GTA 5 and World of Warcraft. So far it seems to be able to handle everything I throw at it. I've only had it for a few weeks so i will update this review again if I need to. It also states that it is VR compatible, I have not yet tested this feature of this machine. So far I'm satisfied with it overall.
