This Computer was Built to replace my old computer that i had for 10 years and it's specs were AMD-Athlon II X2 +4200 Dual core 2.2ghz (which was made in 2003 or 4 not sure) 650w PS by a non brand (cant remember off hand) 4GB of Kingston 333mhz (4) 4x1 1GB 500GB WD Caviar Blue Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (it originally had Win XP 64) Upgrade its old Invidia Gefore Card to 2013 AMD HD Radeon GDDDR3 1GB , stock 650mhz Core,800mhz Memory Speed then OC to 680mhz core clock and 850mhz memory speed. I had this build for 10 years and was Able to get away with Playing Cod series all the way up to Mw3 at AVG 40fps on Low-Medium settings,Along with some other mid-to high end games, I also used this Computer for Lan Gaming at my house when friends came over.

My new Configuration: I got my CPU for free from my old Brother along with (1) 500gb Seagate HDD and and (1) TB WD drive(which went to my dad) for now I am using my old GPU from my old Config until I can find a good Priced GPU, along with Performance for the price and order my the other half of my memory to go to Full 16GB of RAM (1600mhz). I am using my 32" RCA LCD TV at 1360x768 and its perfect for me for now.

With a little bit of more money you Could have gotten the AMD FX-8350, but since you got it for free you can't argue with that.

Other than that this is a really Awesome build.
