I made the 600 dollar budget gaming PC from the front page (although they changed the ram since then) and the AMD Radeon 280 R9 was trash. I kept losing the connection to my monitor, freezing my pc, and after 2 different completely new cards, I'm getting a refund. The PC runs fine from the motherboard and it's completely related to card. I got it on Newegg all the reviews have been from the last 2 weeks and they all are negative, so I think it was a bad batch of cards. At any rate, I need another card, preferably not an AMD, that is around 200-250ish and will work with my stuff.
I just want a basic low end gaming machine, nothing fancy. I already have a PS4/XB1 and would like a PC to pick up the games from last generation I missed (and run them better than a PS3/XB360).
