I just found this on craigslist https://boise.craigslist.org/sys/d/parma-destop-tower/6798826657.html

AMD A10-5800K quad core @ 4.0GHz
Nvidia Geforce GTX 560 Ti 1Gb
750GB Hard drive
500GB Hard drive
700w power supply
$150 firm.

She even thinks it looks cool. Personally, i think the front is a bit dumb looking, but its not for me. That said, i have no idea when it comes to amd stuff. I was able to find out its markedly better than the i3 550, but not as good as the 860 i7. They seem to respond well enough to overclocking. It comes with more than enough power, and even has a "decent" graphics card, the very same i was looking to drop in this computer. I still think the ram will be overkill, but besides that, ive no idea where the bottle neck will be, nor what kind of performance to expect. At this point, fiscally speaking, this is probably the best investment approach. I can either sell this dell as a internet computer for $100, or since it is working again, give it back to my grandparents.

Please forgive me for tarnishing this board with questions about amd stuff.
