+ Total (United States):
I have been building my own PCs during last 15 years and this is my fifth build. Primarily for home office use as I am not a gamer. No overclocking and yet a fast PC with quality components. i5-6600 CPU, good PSU and a H170 motherboard are key components.
The total cost was under $ 1000 including the 27" Asus monitor which I have been using for a while. This build should serve me well for at least next 4 to 5 years.
Boot times are very fast and browsing and working with apps is a breeze.
