Im really looking into getting a PC. I never built a gaming PC before and I don't think im ready for all that right now. I found this desktop. What do you guys think of this strictly for gaming. Also, is it upgradeable/ future proof?

It's the best! It is the perfect form of the gaming PC in Plato's Allegory of the Mancave.
Give everyone enough guns and eventually we'll find out who we have to shoot to get some decent gun control.

All PC's are upgradeable. However that case is so small I doubt it can fit large gpus.

Intel Core i5 3470

That's a 3rd Gen i5. The price for that machine is WAY too high.

just a few quick thoughts now that i can see it:

- a bit overpriced but nothing egregious in this current GPU economy
- 1060 is probably at the low end of VR ready
- no PSU listed, probably a cheapo one that you'd have to replace, but even good ones are still relatively inexpensive
- 8gb RAM, you'll be upgrading that to 16gb ASAP and considering RAM prices, that's just even more upfront cost for you
- god awful case, aesthetically speaking
- free shipping and a trusted seller at least

all in all, to answer your specific question it's good but not great, and yes it is upgradeable.

yep didn't even see this, not only is it priced way too high now, but it's flat out lying in the description when it says it has a 6th gen i5.

The 3470 is a weak CPU and if its purely gaming 8GB is not enough RAM.
I'd up your price to about $1000 and look for 16GB of ram and atleast a 6600K or 1700 processor.

Buy this:

add 8GB of ram and be done.

Nice, I actually seen this one on ebay. To find the PC I want I searched "1060 gtx desktop". But this is on my list now. Is it big and or loud? Also, could I comment to the internet wirelessly with this? Like by wi-fi?
