This PC build would have pretty similar performance then the $1100 one. The $1100 PC might even have a better CPU compared to this. This computer's CPU fan looks a bit less colorful compared to the $1100 build. Then why would you want to get this? The biggest change is that it's got a unlocked Ryzen CPU. What does that mean? It means you can overclock it. The intel i5 9400f is a locked CPU which you wouldn't be able to overclock. However since it's got a less colorful CPU cooler, it's also got better cooling performance. So which one should you get? If you are planning to overclock a bit with your computer, you should ho with this. If you aren't planning to overclock at all and play safe on your computer, the $1100 would be the better option for you.


Refer to the $1100 one.
