Ok, a bit more detail on that please. If a whole prebuilt was cheaper than a new video card, it means that prebuilt has a heck of a lot worse card than one you were considering. And while powerhouse hards like GTX1080 are quite scarce due to Ethereum mining craze, and tend to push $1k, a GTX1050 4gb can be had for around $200. And while it might not drive the latest stuff at high settings in 4K, it can sure handle EQ. Now to the subject of failed hard drive. For a one month PC it is not acceptable. What brand it is, and what sort of case it has? In recent years I had quite a few PCs brought in by friends/neighbors and the problem was failed or failing HDD because case was one of those slim affairs with zero HDD airflow, causing the spinner dtive to pretty much get cooked. If that sounds like your situation, you really ought to go for an SSD, cause another spinner is not likely to last long either.
