    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Now these are all BestBuy prices but i bet amazon will be similar. Leme research a little more and ill make up a new build but for now this is a good thing to go by.

    Like you could just add a better processor like a 4670 or a 4770, And a better GPU like a AMD 280x or Nvidia GTX 770.

    But yeah, ill get back to you on it. In like a few hours or tomorrow.
