Its slightly better because its not in a cardboard box.
My friend has always been playing games (not powerful games) but games over they years on low end cheap prebuilt computers.But on the most recent one it was bad, He couldn't even play runscape at a playable frame rate(it would be like between 4 and 15 FPS) on this AMD Dual-Core E2-Series hp tower . And he wanted to just quit gaming (and it wasn't even just gaming ,multitasking and web browsing sucked too) so i thought hmm i got this PC for free that was fried during a power surge and if the CPU and ram still work maybe i could put something together with various parts i have. well the CPU and the ram worked, With these parts, a video card i got from a friend, a hard drive i had laying around, a case that my friend i was building this for had ,and some budget parts I was able to build a pretty good computer. When he came over to buy it i first showed him league of legends playing on it and he was sold instantly when it loaded in the game in 20 seconds instead of 3 minutes.I sold it to him for 120.00 because i just basically wanted what i put into it.
Some of the parts are wrong in the parts list like i couldn't figure out the exact ram, I will never find that case on this site,and video card looks like that but it wasn't that card it is a 250 though
