Sure. At about 14-15. Right around the time he gets a cell phone and a part time job.

It's a lot better now. All games work fine after the initial administrator prompt to install them.

If he gets into it? Marvel Heroes, Brawlhalla, Overwatch, DCU Online, WoW (just started), all the Lego games, and Rocket League to name a few. He is a PC gamer. He was playing on an old handmedown before. But this is much better, quieter, and more USB ports plus better wifi.

Windows 10 has great parental controls. I get a report of everything he's done. It's amazing.

Yeah I'm leaning towards freesync. That would mean locked into AMD. But AMD is treating me right. I have an R9 390 in my rig.

He knows all the parts and what they do. He only pushed in the RAM though. And held a flashlight. :-)

An i3 6100 and a mobo that's not Z but has TONS of usb ports as a base of the system is the way to go. He plugs in like four Xbox controllers when his friends and cousins are over. Brawlhalla all day. All. Day.

Yes it can. Just limited by the TV he has. ;-)

We'd have to turn down to a mix of high and medium settings. It was my old card. That thing rocked and I paid so little for it.

I have this motherboard. It's a great overclocker. Sound is very good also. I think it's because it has a headphone amp.

Using the mouse in the UEFI makes it freeze sometimes. It's very rare and I didn't bother trying to RMA when I saw other users say the same thing on the ASRock boards. But you only have to go in there to set up and OC. Rock solid beyond that.

Bonus points you can get the non '+' version on Newegg for $20 less. I don't see the non '+' model anywhere else. The difference is the + version comes with a front usb panel for use in a drive bay. Not sure that's worth $20.

Generic? Why because there's no custom parts? It's a weird critic. Looks awesome to me.

The logo on the chipset doesn't block a video card. I have an MSI 390 in the top slot same MB.

I never tried that. Figured once I was able to get my OC done with just the keyboard why worry about it? Not going back in the UEFI for a long time. :-)

It's good. I have it too. Has one issue that Asrock needs to fix. If you use your mouse to navigate the UEFI it will freeze. Like guaranteed. Use the keyboard and there are no issues. So weird.

Super stable otherwise. And easy to OC.

My rule of thumb is never pay more than about $300 for a video card. You will be upgrading in a few years even if you got a $600 card today. They just don't make sense except for epeen.

Sometimes you go with what looks cooler. :-)

I thought the motherboard would still run in dual channel mode if all four slots have the same sticks in them. I'll double check that. Thanks!

As for the easily scratched window I wouldn't know personally. Where the PC is placed in my set up I can't even see the window so it never gets touched by anything that might scratch it. I've seen the scratch tests on YouTube so I believe it. Don't buy if that's a concern.

The minute I picked up the card I was like 'uh oh...this thing weighs a ton.' Seems fine and I'm not moving the PC. But I think a brace will give me piece of mind.

He's a DC Universe Online and Marvel Heroes addict. So as long as that old rig runs those games well he's in heaven. :-)

That case is amazing. My only regret is that were I place the PC I cant see the window. I would need a whole new desk for my set up in order to make that work. Maybe....
