I'm buying a Gaming PC this week! Need help

What I'm looking for is just a gaming desktop that can run minecraft, league of legends, maybe DayZ and some gopro editing nothing major.

What should I be looking for in the desktops I'm looking at?

I was thinking about getting this one for 300

You could assemble a similar setup, new, for about the same price.

For example.

Case $45: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811139038
APU/MOBO $200: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...=Combo.1730152
PSU $40: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139050
Ram $80: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231314
HDD $40: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822236497

$405 for MUCH better parts

Yeah, that's a good idea as well. I'm not a huge AMD guy, but I've heard great things about the one I mentioned.

my CPU is the A10 without the graphics, runs everything fine and dandy, and the Craigslist link you posted has an A8..that wouldnt be too enjoyable

4gigs of 1600 on an APU isn't a good idea. You're going to want 8gigs of 1833 so you can OC it and get the most out of Richland.

I suggest you browse http://www.pcpartpicker.com That site is great for building your own rig and finding you good prices. That's my 2 cents. Now Imma shut up and read.

If you did go with the A10, get an aftermarket cooler, they run HOT. I will look at the one that I put on my HTPC, which does a much better job (but not as good as water would do).

Okay, running with the Zalman CNPS5x, runs all day long just fine, 5+ degrees Celsius cooler than stock. and it's cheap.

Also, core temp does not like the APU's, read up on that before loggin in and seeing 55 degree Celsius temps and going OMG,
