Thank you! As I stated I'm a casual gamer, I can live with medium graphics and/or sub 60 fps, but the CPU is important for my work, what has a bit higher priority for me.

Thank you! If you check the part list, it's $1400 with dual monitors, headphones, etc. These parts don't usually counted in the budget builds here, but I think It's an important part of the cost. And bear in mind, the price is converted from HUF, the parts are usually more expensive here.

Thank you! First I bought the LG, and after a few weeks I wanted to buy a second one, but it sold out everywhere, and this Acer was the closest in spec and looks. :(

Because I built this PC in '15 December, and now I don't want to spend more on GPU. :)

Thank you! In my case this is the sweet spot in power usage and performance. Most of the time it has around 10-20% load, it only get higher when I use the virtual windows server on it, but it's still strong enough for testing. It's only has one annoying problem, which is related to the newer linux kernels and the Intel C-states: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=109051

Thank you, but the raid 6 needs minimum 4 drives, and now I only have three. I am not looking for extreme high availability, and I always make offsite backup for the important data, so for me the raid5 is just enough - in my case the redundancy is just a "nice to have" feature, and the raid5 is the best bang for the buck.

Thank you! :)

I use it mostly for work - full stack web development, so this config is just enough. The GTX960 is the sweet spot for me, because I only play 1-2 hours/per week, but the 6100 sometimes a bit slow, so I'm considering to upgrade to i5-6600.
