So this machine was originally a budget build just to test how the APU would work. I bought all the parts a few months back for a total of $295, so I did save quite a bit. I tested a few games, and they seemed to work better than my other build, which was a lot more expensive. Overall, really like it. I ended up giving it to my father, and he has not had a word of complaint about it. Would recommend!
Again, was only 295.
