    The lack of a solid state drive is probably the biggest thing that sticks out, the system won't feel as responsive as it would have done with one. Although it won't affect game performance.

    If you're planning on buying a variable refresh rate monitor then the GTX 1060 will mean you'll be paying ~100USD more like for like than if you'd chosen the similarly performing RX 480.

    Other than that it's a perfectly solid gaming PC, perhaps a little over the top for games like CS:GO and Overwatch. There's a few things I'd have changed if it was my system - the case is at least twice as large as needed for those components - but they're purely personal preference.
