It would for FPS if you had above 60 hz and could notice. Rule of thumb, AMD wins in colour and value to performance(usually), NVIDIA wins in FPS and tessellation (picture accuracy). At least my rule of thumb lol

As a business, they probably have better deals set up for them as a retailer with certain brands/companies and as such this was more than likely in stock componentry. So for them, it was probably better margin this way and quicker for the customer

Any modern card (even a 1050) will be bottlenecked by that CPU. It's about the same processing power as a Core 2 Duo. Maybe find a GTX 500 series or and AMD R7 200 series (260,270) or 7700 or 7800 series. Those would be a better option than a 970 for equalized performance. As for a case, that may be a proprietary form factor... you may have some fun trying to move that or even adding a power supply. That's when you look at maybe a used GTX 750 or 750ti that runs on motherboard power only. Honestly, the RAM and Windows liscence are the only parts you got out of there that's any bit effective. Not trying to being mean, just honest as I can. The A75 platform is long gone, you would be better off siphoning RAM and liscence and starting over :/

(the photos show the radiator fans incorrectly set as intake giving 4 intake and only 1 exhaust - I realised my error and have since swapped these around).

Glad I read that, but those that read less won't :P either way nice build. Honestly Some rads are fine being intakes as long as the heat does exhaust well (front mounted radiators are typical culprits)

Left room in budget, 29" 75Hz Monitor, IPS LED backlit 21:9 can change to this if wanting a decent 1080 IPS panel. Mostly black system, no side window but front LED if you so wish. Clean, upgradable, i7 with 1080 from Inno3D with triple fans. 16GB RAM at 2666. Added Mechanical RGB KB(again, if wanted but backlight is nice for typing accuracy) and Headphones if needed. Best of luck!

Both of these take up minimum space and will work fine as day to day machines. both have 4 threads and sip power. The AMD can even be VESA mounted on a monitor, the Intel could go under the monitor.

Just to verify these work, at my work we still run Core2 Duo's on our POS and machines I see today are usually J1900 or J3710 Integrated CPU's and they are just fine.

Touchscreen Monitor if needed

Signature Pad if needed, we use these and after setup they are great.

My good internets person... you must have an entertaining/lucrative line of work :) Found the new P5000 on Newegg.ca, beating the M6000 in almost everything except total VRAM (16GB vs 24GB max on M6000, but the M6000 doesn't quite hit as hard)

Also, I strayed away from Dual SSD's for pure matter of total storage, the IronWolf is a 256MB cache and is a fantastic enterprise level drive with 10TB of belly. 128 GB ECC Registered RAM, 28 cores, 28 threads of glory and I know it's air cooled, but that's plenty for these Xeons. If needing Multi Monitor, then get 2 or 3 of these for multi position fun.

As for KB/M, that's personal preference and without Guidelines (Ergonomic, Mechanical, Gamer, etc.) I left ~ $300-400 before tax instead of your original maximum. Now, could you get cooler stuff? Yes. Could you get more sensible things and have lots of extra's and goodies? Probably. Can you expand on this so it's not once and done? Absolutely. Still plenty of room for more GPU's, CPU's with Higher core count and even another 8 DIMM slots to fill down the line with a 1 TB RAM ceiling. This is a build that can STILL be built on. Rather not bottleneck you out of the gate.

Without further Adieu...

Honestly, squeezing the 8 GB RX 480 would be more future proof. Slightly better performance an compute cores for a little increase price wise. I see the RX 470 lasting 3-5 years reliably. the 480 I could see a couple extra.

No worries, happy to provide info. Now, for people to accurately set up build logs for you, jus a few questions. Do you need the monitors keyboard and mouse included in the price above? Or do you have those things?

Planning 6+ months ahead with the tech advancing like it is today isn't that advisable to be honest. 1-2 months is probably more than enough (I build a lot of customs and ones I built last year for same money have 10% less performance) now is especially uncertain because Q1 is when new tech arrives, Black Friday is literally so they can get old stock off shelves lol. Savings on Black Friday do pay off, don't get me wrong. But in all honesty, take this time to research then when a month away start loading up and really deciding what advantages you researched you want. That's my 2 cents. Well... 5 cents since we haven't got pennies anymore :P

Power Supply was changed for a higher quality. Xigmatek Cooler does well for an air cooler plus white and Blue. Gigabyte Board similar feature set as one picked, little more flash, Black white and blue. ASUS Card mostly for looks, but similar performance. S340 Elite case for the same layout but cleaner interior and tempered panel to show the insides off. K series CPU to take advantage of overclocking if you choose, also quicker out the box than it's non-K counterpart. RAM was purely aesthetic lol. You could stick with original choice on that and not have any issues. Basically just hitting the request of theme with a mild tune up for future proofing.

That one only has some standoffs pre installed, so make sure you line up standoffs properly and you will be fine. Opted for the 1050ti I see.

Looks good, can drop a K series in later, good expandability. Recommend the Dukase V2 for a case. Big, airy, and good room while under $100. Best of luck!

ZIp ties and patience. Not to sound silly but really... you have a fully modular PSU, a large case and Phanteks has historically been generous with space for management. You could look into some Sleeves for the GPU cables or a custom PSu basement Mod specifically, but otherwise you should be golden. Plus that case has velcro ties to assist in that as well

the 1070 is a tad outta this price point even without Windows. But you could overclock... like this below. And i left the larger Hard drive out because... well $50 is easier to sneak by the wife than $100-200 ;)... believe me I know lol

For what performance gains you get, a 120/140mm AIO cooler over a good Air Cooler isn't really worth it. either look at the X62 or something like this below (keeps white/LED theme and manual adjustment on fans as well as PWM) Otherwise, solid like rock my good... well Internets person :P
