This build was designed by me when I realized I had no money but really wanted to join the PCMR. I scrapped up just enough cash to build a pretty decent system. It comes with AMD's newest, top-of-the-line APU paired with 8GB of 2400MHz RAM to increase performance (APU's thrive on your RAM, higher frequency is better in this case). The APU actually comes with AMD's Wraith cooler. That is essentially AMD apologizing for all the horrible stock coolers. Thus, the Wraith cooler is silent but runs cold. (Get it? Wraith?) The PSU leaves you with enough room to slap in a moderately powerful card later.
Skyrim: Ultra at 45 FPS average
Grand Theft Auto V: Low at 43 FPS average
Witcher 3: Low at 34 FPS average
Games like LoL, Rocket League, Dota 2, and other MMOs or MOBAs run at Max Settings at >60 FPS
THIS BUILD IS MEANT FOR YOU TO ADD A GRAPHICS CARD LATER ON. I WOULD RECOMMEND AN RX 470, RX 480, or GTX 1060. I WENT WITH THE 1060, AM GETTING AROUND 40-60 FPS IN WITCHER 3, ALL MAXED OUT.
Amazing performance for an APU. Use with high frequency RAM.
Inexpensive memory with high frequency.
Never get any other HDD. This is the best hard drive for the money.
Tower with plenty of room for a large card. Surprisingly good quality. Plenty of room for cable management in the back panel.
Would rate 10/10 has not yet exploded.
