Hi,
I'm trying to build a computer for mostly daily use. I do play some games, but they are not very hardware demanding and I'm fine with low to mid setting, so I may start with a cheap graphic card and try to upgrade if I see the need. My budget is $700(OS not included). Anyone has some suggestions? Thank you. :D
