  1. 8/10. I'd have chipped in a bit more for a different motherboard with the amount that you've paid. Also remember for RAM upgrades I believe home premium only supports 16gb if you plan to do more in the future.
  2. 7/10 Memory wise you could add more. I recommend getting a second hard drive, an ssd and use it as a boot drive to boost speed. Your optical drive is weak. Get a better multi drive I recommend aan LG brand, either model number CH12LS28 or WH14NS40.
