  1. For that price point, any system would only be able to run games on low/medium settings at best. I'd recommend saving a bit more before buying a system to get more for your money and for it to last longer. Hope this helps :D

    wow... really poor use of funds. why would you drop 90 on a keyboard? why would you spend cash on a 630 GTX when you have an a10-5800k which has a stronger onboard gpu then the 630? no no no... and that motherboard won't handle that processor. Here is a better option for you to consider.
