I posted earlier asking for parts for a new build. Well....my grandpa has already picked and ordered the parts to surprise a couple days early. It's an awesome computer. Here are the specs:

OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Home, 64 bit
Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-7700K CPU @ 4.20GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 158 Stepping 9
Processor Count: 8
RAM: 16341 Mb
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080, -1 Mb
Hard Drives: C: 222 GB (192 GB Free); D: 1274 GB (493 GB Free); E: 97 GB (76 GB Free); F: 1171 GB (666 GB Free); G: 1181 GB (214 GB Free);
Motherboard: MSI, Z270 PC MATE (MS-7A72)
Antivirus: Windows Defender, Enabled and Updated


Only Drive C and Drive F came with it, the others are from a USB drive. There are some flaws though.

1. When I first tried to start it I got a message that no boot drive could be found. They had the HDD set as boot device. Problem solved.

2. The HDD that came with it isn't being recognized as even existing in Windows Explorer. I'll check that out tomorrow.

3. The internet (wifi) is very very slow but that's improving the more I use it so it might just need to be broken in. I watched 2 hours of streaming video on Hurricane Irma with no buffering.


It's liquid cooled. I can't tell you what the brand of the cooler is, it has a glass side with lights that change colors. I know he spent more that the $800 budget he had given me. It isn't the Ryzen 7 I was wanting but I know I'll have a lot of fun with it for years.

Hopefully you can 'suffer thru and endure' the typical 10-20% increased gaming frame rates offered by the 7700K ....

You should be set for a couple years with that machine, and probably much longer if you put in a new video card in a few year if you feel it slowing down.
