Tinman2,
From you response, you could buy either:

HP Z2 Mini G3
http://www8.hp.com/us/en/hp-news/media-kits/2016/HP-Z2-Mini-launch.html
OR
The Dell XPS Tower Special Edition (8930)

You will and add a  suitable monitor of your choice.

The big difference is size. That is why I asked about what you wanted. Some professionals want the smallest possible thing that fits on their desktop. The HP model above fits that. But here are no options for  adding  anything inside.

Other  people what a big box that allows the option of putting more stuff inside. Maybe a an extra hard drive or some kind of interface card for a special project.

Both are about the same price. But have good performance at a fair price. Bother companies have good support.
I recommend either Dell or HP base on personal experience.

Hope that is of some help.   :)

Wow............all is information.......all I am looking for is a reliable disk top unit.....don't need anything fancy not playing games on it....using it for email, Facebook and want to install office...... I am looking at a Asus

3GHz 7th generation Intel Core i5-7400 processor and 8GB DDR4 2400MHz RAM drive powerful performance whether you're creating a presentation, streaming a movie, or multitasking
•2TB hard drive offers generous storage for a substantial collection of software, games, videos, music, photos, and more
•802.11ac Wi-Fi lets you connect to your wireless home network with fast wireless speeds for streaming and downloading
•Bluetooth 4.1 makes it possible to wirelessly connect to a wide range of enabled devices, including headsets, keyboards, and mobile devise
•10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet lets you establish a reliable, wired connection to your network and the internet for potentially faster data transfer speeds
•Eight USB ports (2 front and 6 back) let you connect a wide range of devices to expand your system, sync or transfer data, charge electronics, and more
•HDMI output lets you connect to compatible displays, including your HDTV for supersize entertainment
•SonicMaster audio uses optimized hardware and software to deliver powerful sound with significant bass for an unrivaled audio experience
•ASUS AudioWizard offers 5 selectable settings for music, movies, games, voice recording, and speech
•ASUS Smart Cooling System reduces accumulation of dust and cuts down operating temperatures by up to 11.4 degrees C for a cooler, quieter computing experience
•ASUS Q-Fan technology automatically regulates fan speeds based on system loads
•This computer is quieter than a library when it's idle -- with a sound level of only 28dB
•Features 16x DVD ROM drive and 6-in-1 card reader that supports SD, SDHC, MS, MS Pro, XD and MMC
•Preloaded with Windows 10, which features a refined browser, improved Start menu, digital assistant with Cortana, universal Windows apps, and much more

May have too much power.. but then maybe not.
This post seems absolutely absurd to me.  You say "don't need anything fancy not playing games on it....using it for email, Facebook and want to install office", then follow that with a long list of features which go way beyond your stated computing use.

@tinman,

I'll simply state, brand name is no indication of what is best.
if you compare the differences in specs of 2 PC's, than one will be better based on the spec that's important to you.

Consider:
What about warranty? Does the unknown brand offer a one  year warranty? Isf so, how would a Return Merchandise  be handled?
And support? What if a flaw was found in the BIOS?

I think the brand name companies have better support.
These are considered better for support:

Apple
Asus
Dell
HP
Lenovo

Alphabetical order.
Anybody want to make of list of those that have worst  supportty?
I will start with
MSI

Anybody want to add to that?
