I just saw this deal on SlickDeals and thought of you.

Then I came here and see you have posted about it. What's your intended uses?

I'm thinking to build a new PC... probably been over a decade since my last one. Looking at a gen 12 or 13 i5 CPU, 16 or 32 GB RAM, a mid tower case that can hold 4+ 3.5" drives, and a ~500w efficient PSU. I can probably bring the thing together for about $450 or so.

I'll run a Plex server, BlueIris NVR, file server, and possibly games if I get around to it and can share that with the kids. Gonna start them with old ROMs so they can appreciate them before being ruined by the awesomeness of new games.
