I built this computer as a way into pc gaming on a tight budget. In terms of performance, it can max out older games like Crysis 2 and 3, Skyrim, Hitman: Absolution, Battlefield 3, Dead space 1-3, Fallout 3, and Planetside 2 at 720p. Newer games like Battlefield 4 can still be played, just not on ultra settings. This build was, at the time, the best price/performance possible. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is trying to get into pc gaming without the premium price (although an extra $100-200 would make a huge difference if you can afford it). My only complaints are of the case (which to be fair only cost $15) and the motherboard, which impedes the upgradeability of this pc immensely. No cpus are using the FM2 socket type and the PCI-E is only 2.0.
Price breakdown by parts: Sentey case: $15 XFX hd7770: $90 A10 5800k: $80 MSIe35: $50 Caviar Green HDD: Had one lying around Team Vulcan RAM: $75 CX430 PSU: $20 Total Price: $330 (plus $4 shipping for the case)
*note to anyone interested in building a similar machine: Don't buy this part for part. Find whatever is cheapest with the most similar specs (E.G., a 430w PSU on sale for $20 instead of buying the one I have for full price)
