Wanted something for no more than this amount of money. I can upgrade memory, and other things in the future as budget allows. I have built a desktop in the past, but for the price it's hard to compete with this. I also have an old Vista machine to rob keyboard, mouse etc from. The one I tried to link to comes with the AMD-A8-6600K CPU, Win 8.1, ASUS AM88XM-A motherboard, added card reader, and case fan. Opinions?
