I mainly use the system to play games and light editing. I bought mostly everything from the Facebook Marketplace to maximize deals at the time of the build (built a month and a half ago). I plan on switching over to a Ryzen platform soon.
Total I have actually spent on this system is near $600.
Facebook Marketplace: CPU- $110 Ram- $50 GPU- $115 Keyboard- $40
Craigslist: Mobo- $35
Componets bought from retailer/had CPU Cooler- $40 (bestbuy) Case- $90 (bestbuy) Headset- $60 (bestbuy) $200.39 out the door. Mouse- $44 (walmart)
Monitor, PSU, and 500gb SSD were taken from another system that I later flipped.
