    Agreed, it looks like a solid build. I like the case - it's simple but has just a bit of flair so it doesn't look dull.

    As for the photo editor, I'm not sure what you're wanting to do so it's hard to recommend a program. Win 10 has Paint and Photos, both will do limited editing (cropping, and marking), and Photos has some preset coloring.

    As for the last question (MS Office Works), it looks highly suspect. First, pricing is too good to be true. Second, the phone numbers are listed oddly (XXX) XXXX-XXX...? That's not typical US format. Also, I called the number today (Sunday) and no one was there even though the website says they're open 7 day's a week.

    Hope this helps.

    Solid build. I really like that case and power supply. That CPU is nice and zippy for a dad-build, but its bang-for-the-buck is pretty low. $45 more gets you a quad-core i5-7500 which turbos to 3.8ghz. Or you could save $100 and get a G4400, which is 800mhz slower than the i3.

    For simple photo editing, some folks still like Picasa 3:
    If at first you don't succeed, redefine success.
