I've been considering buying/building a gaming rig. From looking at the specs on the best buy site, it's not clear what if any input-storage devices this unit has. Most of my collection of games is on CD/DVD. I even have some on floppy. I'm pretty sure this unit doesn't have a 3.5 or 5.25 floppy but from the pictures it doesn't appear to have an optical drive either. Do current games not come on disk? And does this unit have space to install drives?
That's because most games are now downloaded versus available on-disc.
You'll have to make sure either that the PC you buy still has optical bays for you to add one later, or just buy an external USB 3.0 optical drive.
A lot of gaming PCs don't include an optical drive, and many cases today don't even have a spot for it.
And also these gaming PC cases are trying to optimize airflow to keep CPUs and GPUs cool (especially if they're overclocked). If you look at the inside of my case it appears nearly empty.
I didn't build PCs in my youth. I didn't see the cost savings given how well priced Gateway and Dell were in the '90s.
The big savings and flexibility in building your own was in gpu selection
If I ever did another Windows desktop, I would build my own again.
