This computer is mainly used for internet browsing and light gaming (internet games). I opted for the APU from AMD since it offer good performance for its price. Also, I chose the 1866 Mhz RAM to help it run better. Since I wanted it to be as fast as possible for the tasks I wanted, I added a SSD.
I must say that the case is really a joy to work with for its price tag.
