So that's About it Please review this Build As it took alot of time and effort to build it. I'm 14 and the total cost was $193.43

So that's My first ever build And I build it at 14. Now currently working on getting a good monitor please review and see if everything is ok :)  I think It's a great build.

Most of this was bought off of newegg but I purchased mobo and processor on ebay :0 So yeah please review tell me if it can play like Skyrim on Medium to high

Thank you :)

Given the benchmarks, why does anyone build AMD? Am I just bias? The Intel CPU's on paper are much better.

It is the only cheap processor I could afford

What's your current rig?

$200 is not enough to run modern games at medium to high settings @ playable frame rates.

8800 was pretty good- 5 years ago. You are going to have lag and slow FPS.

You would be much better off just saving up at least $500 to build a decent rig.

GPU not good, processor not good(and to some extent the mobo), not enough RAM, not enough power, case okay, everything else good

on the contrary that video can run starcraft 2 and skyrim on medium. DOn't critisize me just review the build... Also later I am getting dual Radeon HD 5750 :)  so no problems there. Anyways tell me if I need to replace any of the parts or something. Or if it is a good where it's at. What do you mean the processor is not good what do you suggest then?? and 4gb is plenty
