                                            Dedicated GPU and a decent CPU does not mean you can play games. My moms computer is an Intel i7 3770 with a GTX 710 and have to play on medium-low to get 60+ FPS and that's a half way decent set of hardware you think the performance would be a smidgen higher. I really need to upgrade her's and my desktops, I'm running an i5 650 with the integrated graphics since I gave my HD5450 to my mom since her GTX 710 is overheating and acting funny, need some thermal paste before I take it apart. Anyway I need to do some upgrading just finds are so tight with all our bills right now. School starts soon maybe I'll be able to afford to build something soon and you think it would be easier on the wallet to have a starting computer, except I pretty much don't the i7 3770 is my mom's which I can game on but it's not in my room like the other one. I can't use anything not the case it's a slimline hp model, only thing slightly usable is the CPU and mobo but that's exactly what I am trying to get rid of since it's one of the worst chips in Intels whole line up of CPU's for gaming. Been entering a ton of giveaway's wish me luck.

                                            TLDR: You gotta have at the most minimum $200 to game and that would be with buying a used graphics card for $50.

                                              If this had at least 4GB of RAM, and an SSD for the OS, this would have been a perfectly acceptable machine for casual or business use.
