oh wow. thank you for clearing this up. I thought I would have had to download Win10 on it. My toaster currently has vista I think, I'm not sure it can support Win10 but I will try the method as you explained it!

unfortunately I cannot download windows 10 on either of my computers. One is apple and the other is a dinosaur.

did your OS come in USB form? I can't seem to find that information on any of the OS pages. I need a usb since I will not have a disc drive. I am looking to build my first pc using the same CPU and GPU you have here. looks great!

If you don't mind me asking, how did you get an operating system? I am looking into building my first pc with your exact CPU and GPU for around your price... I keep going way over once I add windows 10 USB. (since I won't have a disc drive).

Thanks for all the advice! I've had a couple of people try to explain to me how to download and buy windows 10, then put it on a USB to put it on my new computer, and I've never quite understood it. In addition to , I don't have access to a computer that is able to run Windows 10. Sadly the only computer me or any of my family has that is not apple is a 9 year old computer that can't use windows 10. So would I need to buy a windows 10 usb then? since I won't have a. disc drive or access to a pc to get windows 10 pre-installed on a usb?

Roundabouts when should I replace the paste? You are talking about just replacing the paste right?

Ah ok, good. I feel great with the R5 then. Thanks. I'm going to end up spending full price for the Win10 Home Full USB, so I can put Win10 on another part in the future if I change them out. Also I don't know anyone with Win10 to copy, I've been dealing with dinosaur computers for a couple of years and most people I know have a Mac. Anyway thanks for the input!

Expansion Internal 3.5" Drive Bays-2 Internal 2.5" Drive Bays-2 Expansion Slots-7

I found the information on the case but I don't know how to read it lol. Would a HDD fit in an expansion slot or one of the bays?

Hey, thanks for the reply.

-When you say USB is needed, does that mean all windows 10 come with a usb to install it? Or that my case and components don't have a disc drive?

-Thanks for all the other tips and advice too, I looked into the Ryzen 7 1700, it does put my budget even further away from my range would be ok but the one I have, form what I've gathered, will do just fine for a while. I'm used to playing on a 8 year old budget prebuilt office pc and my wives 7 year old MacBook laptop for the last 2 years so I'll already be living in bliss with anything close to the R5, lol.

Also a quick question, how do I find out of my case has enough room to add a HDD in the future for extra storage?

-Yes 1080p, 60fps is all I care to achieve. Or at least the results of trying my best to get closest to 60fps at 1080p with my budget.

-I browsed briefly at motherboards cheaper than mine, cheap enough to warrant a change at least. I found a healthy amount of negative reviews and concerns. I'm not sure what "features" I would need for my motherboard for this build. I gathered the cheaper ones don't have as much or as good features. I would love to cut down my overall price a bit but I don't know what I'd be sacrificing or if I would even be able to tell. Any insight into this?

-And good! I suppose I'll hold off on thermal paste then since it's pre-applied. I assume it still works fine when pre-applied?

Awesome, thanks for the recommendations. I'm curious what difference the power supply makes. or how big of a difference it is between 80+ and 80+Bronze. Wouldn't the one I chose run everything just as well? As long as it's all getting power, I wouldn't notice a difference right?

Wow, thank you for this response, it was very informative for me. So with storage, do I need a HDD and SDD or can I get by with just one, considering I'm only using this PC for a single purpose.

Ok, so both would be required to have a working computer that can go online and also play WoW? What type of settings do you think I could play WoW on this setup?

This is the most inexpensive PC I've had recommended for WoW for me, so I'm intrigued. A question though, what is the purpose of having 2 storage drives?

Thanks for your reply, yes WoW is my only game. It's hard to pinpoint a budget because I have about a grand but I need to save as much as possible. I certainly couldn't spend more than $600 ish. No other programs I care to run, It's possible I may try to play a game on steam now and again if it's unavailable on ps4, but WoW is my only concern. I would however like to play it on high settings with decent FPS if possible.

Nice build, do you, off the top of your head, know if this would run World of Warcraft well? Also how did you get your Operating System to be $0?
