Went on a mission to build an inexpensive (relative term) gaming PC that could play just about anything. I'm pretty sure I hit the mark with this machine. The one spot it appears I splurged, the motherboard, is actually deceptively pricey. I got a generous sum of Rakuten super points with its purchase, so I saved on something else later. Running PC Mark 8 informs me that this is, by far, the fastest build I have in my collection for general home computing, something I was surprised about considering my more exotic builds. It also bests everything I have in 3D Mark 11, with the exception of the triple SLI setup (it used to have a catchy name, but the mods appear to have removed it, so I called it "my computer.") that I personally use at home. Considering the huge delta in cost I am stunned at what this hardware can do compared to its more expensive counterpart. Like i said, this (relatively) inexpensive gaming rig is what I set out to make...and then some.
