I just checked and the Logitech G305 I am using is 3 and a half years old, and still ticking away strong. Just had to replace the feet pads a year ago.

My previous mouse was a Mionix and it was double clicking after 2 years.

Kinda surprising considering the amount of gaming I did during COVID, lmao.

I had the left click die on my Logitech G500 after something like 15 years of pretty heavy use, and I think the top button doesn't work on my G600 because I dropped it a bunch of times. Other than that I don't think I've had anything break/wear out.

Impressive

On the low end, bundled Logitech mice that come with keyboards, they die within a year or so for me. I haven't considered a higher end mouse from Logitech so I may consider one in the near future.

I had a Corsair RGB keyboard die on me once.. tried to get a replacement since I had the memory express extended warranty or whatever and they could only give me a certain credit amount, tried to clean it as best as I could before bringing it in, but forgot that I spilled a bunch of codeine and it went underneath the keys and got all sticky lol

I’m looking to surprise my son with a gaming PC for his bday. He’s been asking for years but already has a PS5, a switch, iPhone etc so I’ve taken the hard no stance for a while. Now my daughters have more need for a PC as well for school as my company locked down simple things like saving PPTs etc to a USB which they used to do on my laptop for homework. So I figure this might be a sneaky way to make the boy happy while also providing a tool for the whole family to use.

My brother is far more educated on PC’s than I and recommended this one while it was on sale for Black Friday: https://www.canadacomputers.com/prod...item_id=243212 I was saving for a family trip at the time so didn’t pull the trigger but am prepared to buy something this month/early March.

I don’t mind the $2500 price tag but figured I’d check in here to see if anyone knows of a better deal for something equivalent or perhaps more bang for the buck at that price point. He’ll want the LED lit keyboard and everything else to make him feel like a famous YouTuber so savings is ideal, but I’m also the kinda person who prefers to buy once and cry once so I’m open to suggestions if the value is there.

Any input/advice would be appreciated.

TIA

For the price, it's pretty reasonable and has the look that a teenager would like.

They skimp out a bit on the case and power supply from the looks of it, but no big glaring issues overall.

This is what I got for about the same price fully installed with a copy of legit Windows. There are places to save a few bucks, but wanted to stick to $2500 for comparison purposes.



No RGB bling, just a straight up black system though.

Have your kid do some research, make it a project. Built the computer yourselves. You do it once it's a skill both of you will never forget. Also get some RGB. Kids love RGB,

Any recommendations on good mice to get? Wireless and able to connect up to three devices is key.
So just an update: I took out some plastic trim removal tools and cracked open my mouse and took out the wheel. Sure enough, there was just a lot of dust and junk stuck in there so I cleaned it out. As good as new!

Did a NAS swap from a Fractal Design Node 804 to a Jonsbo N2.

Look at that size difference. mATX with 10x 3.5" drive support to ITX with 5x 3.5" drive support.

For a second I thought you were rocking one of these bad boys.

Update on my rig: Fried my motherboard doing some stupid shit.

I upgraded to a Ryzen 7 5800x. Canada Computers had a CPU+mobo promo for $299
