Yeah, this isn't some [H] machine here. But it's a good second build for guests, your kids or even your wife to tag along with you at a decent framerate and @1080p.

Double up on that ram and you're good.

PCPARTSPICKER states this would cost around $500 if you built yourself with similar parts.

couple knocks against it which make it worth the $389, and not much more.. These towers won't take Ryzen 3000, so they are what they are and that's it.. Not ALL A320's will work on Ryzen 3k, but many will.

Plus, who buys windows? recycle a key, or spend $3-10 on one.

Solid deal for a ready to go build, especially in a nice SFF.

The only head scratch in my mind is the inclusion of a 550 by HP. I'd think it wouldn't be much faster than the Vega in the 2200G.
