    "This was my first build I've ever done. And when I heard it's release I was so happy that the budget people got a huge cut. However, since a year now of its initial release, prices has gone up from 60 to 80 USD. Which is sad but for what its worth, it's really great if you have a very tight budget. I paired it with an RX 470 and it's amazing. It's 90% of a Skylake i3 fo,r what it was at the time, 50% off. If you can find it for cheap, it's amazing."
