got done building the 320$ cash PC and wanted to know what it would be like. Haven't run anything on it yet, just know it boots up :P. I can build them but still learning the PC spec world of different types but here it is, it includes:

CPU:Intel i5-650 3.2 GHz/intel DH SSTC and CPU cooler (combo) GPU:R9 270 SSD:Sandisk 120 GB HDD:Seagate 500 GB CASE:Cooler Master - Master Case Pro S RAM: 8 GB ballistic DDR3 ram (combo) MB: ...?(combo) Power:CX 600 ETC:Windows 8.1, DVD player, fans

What high-end games would I be able to play or any general titles at all? Thanks board! And should I or can I overclock anything here to make it better (CPU or GPU)?

Can't overclock your i5 650. Is it too late to swap for an i3 6100? It will crush the Clarkdale i5, and is cheaper as well. Either way, you can't overclock your processor, but you can (and should) overlock your R9 270. Otherwise, looks good.

You'd really only be able to play lighter titles, but I'm not really sure what games you like.

The R7 370 is a refreshed R7 265, iirc it is weaker than the R9 270.

That is odd since the R9 270 is based on Pitcairn XT while the R7 370 and the R7 265 are based on Pitcairn Pro. Maybe it confused it as the R9 370X.
