I built this to replace the aging custom computer we've used for the past 6 or so year. Back then, it cost 1,300ish dollars to get it built, and the parts were old and slow (4gb ram ddr2 with 32bit Intel core duo 8400). Being a first time build, progress was slow but at the end, everything worked perfectly. Only problem I thought i had was a defective APU chip because it was running hot. Now I've learned that it's just a hot chip. The new computer should be faster, and handle much more than the one we have now.
