I know I could have gotten better components in some areas but this machine will cost me just over $830.00 with shipping and will play most current games without any major issues. I can go in later and upgrade once I recoup some funds as well.
Please share your thoughts, just keep it constructive if you would please.
P.S. I'll be trying to take pictures of the build after the parts arrive later and uploading them here as I get the machine put together.
