Is this about the cheapest you can get a viable gaming PC without resorting to used parts?

And before anyone says anything, YES, I do need a WiFi adapter. Our Modem & Router is downstairs and my room is on upper floor, and it's easier and cheaper than buying a super long Ethernet cable and running it through half the whole house.

It's a good PC in terms of brand new parts. You might want to spend a little bit more for the 1300x.

Buying Windows at full price is kinda crazy, there are many places that it is much cheaper and that money would probably be better towards a 1050ti.

find a used laptop or desktop with a Windows 7/8 key on the side and bam you have free Windows 10.

There's a local place that offers a custom PC building service, do these places usually get free or discounted Windows licenses?

What I'm talking about is sellers like Kinguin.net who sell Windows keys for $20. It's more of a grey area seller, but you're still getting a legit windows key.

Paying full price for Windows on an extreme budget build is nuts. I've used Kinguin for different Windows 10 codes and it's been fine.
