    Why Wow? Should I not go AMD?
  3. He is still building an AMD based PC, however you had a chip with onboard graphics inbuilt, which is unnecessary if you are buying a dedicated GPU.

    Your build had a dual core processor. His build has a much more powerful 6 core processor.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you for this, it helps a great deal. I'm new to this and would like to keep my budget low while allowing for both future investment in better parts while having current real time playability.
