I've decided on buying a DIY Combo from Newegg! Thoughts?

I had a previous thread on another section about how I have a crappy HP that can't be upgraded etc.


Anyways, I was looking at the pc part picker site and trying to compare and play around. The only problem is that it gives you parts from different sites, meaning it would cost a lot to ship things individually to me, etc.


So I went to Newegg and found this DIY PC Combo.




Is this good to start off with? I have a budget so I know this motherboard or processor may not be the best but its the best I can do at the moment, and can hopefully upgrade this later on. I will have to get Windows 10, install a CD/DVD drive, and also buy a wireless network adapter.


I guess my question is.. is this worth it and is it easy to setup? I have watched plenty of PC building videos from youtube and newegg. After I have all of the components together and ready to go, I guess I boot up the PC and put in the Windows 10 CD and it will install the OS? Then I'm done? Is it that simple? Never built a PC before. Thanks.

I think honestly in your situation the combo wouldn't be a bad idea but what are you exactly trying to use the computer for?

Also purchase two usb ext HDs, download and install Macrium Reflect or Acronis True Image, for your restorable backups.
