    LOL did anyone bother to do their research on the integrated GPU and this card before buying? Those cards are only good for an extremely old PC like a Core 2 Duo with integrated graphics not even capable of running HD resolution video off the web and without dual monitor support, or something very old without any integrated graphics at all. They are useless for anything else.

    See, I don't get the point of a video like this. You simply HAVE to buy parts that are of a certain level of power to get something that functions even halfway decent. There must be some level of standards when building a "cheap" build.

    $500ish is the value sweetspot right now for tower budget. That nets you a build with Ryzen 5 1600, Radeon RX 580, and 16GB DDR4... which is enough to play just about anything at max settings 1080p 60fps :D

      Hey my recommendation is a 2200g and go to evga's Wednesday sale and get a GTX 970 or 980 which may be more costly but that is just true for my system.because I chose a 1700 on sale for $130 and a h200 from nzxt

    Don't buy from Newegg! Bought a WD Blue M.2 1TB received a Crucial MX500 2.5" 500GB no retail box with the invoice for the WD! Return the item with return label sent by Newegg, Item delivered and signed by Perez, contact customer service and they said no such tracking number exist and item is nowhere to be found! Then they email me to ask the same question again!

    All f2p games will work perfectly on it!

    League of Legends, Smite, Dota2, Paladins, all of them are super optimized for low range PCs and you can enjoy hundred of hours of gameplay for free while waiting to get more money and upgrade the parts one by one.

    Start with the Ram, then the videocard and the hard/ssd.
    Do this each year and with less than 150$/year you will game till you drop on f2p games.

    Honestly this pc is actually really good specs wise if Linus put at least 4-8 gb of ram ddr3 in there. Using the igpu would have yielded much better results with theoretical performance of 480 gigaflops or 0.48 teraflops compared to the measly “29”gigaflops of the 8440gs
