Hi all, new to the site. Looking for a little advice on whether I should keep a desktop I just ordered and it upgrade as needed or return it and build from scratch.
My wife's laptop died last week and so we were in a hurry to replace it. She has decided she wants to go back to a desktop. Since we needed something quickly, I did a little looking and pulled the trigger on this Asus M521BC-US007S from Amazon.
This will be used mainly for office applications, some casual gaming, streaming movies, and web-browsing. The specs seemed pretty decent, and the only thing I really wish it had was a SSD for quick bootup and installed app performance. It actually may be overkill for what we intend to use it for, but I'm also looking to future-proof to a certain extent.
Of course, right after I ordered this I discovered PCPartPicker. Now the thought of building exactly what we want and not paying for anything we don't seems pretty appealing.
I guess my question is, do you think it's really worth it to go through the process of returning the desktop I ordered and building one or is this one a good enough starting point for the price that I should just keep and upgraded as needed.
Appreciate any and all feedback and sorry for the long-windedness.
