   This might be worth it with the addition of a good graphics card.....

I was having a perfectly good morning until your $314 computer started the, I need a new computer discussion again.

Thank you for the heads up.

Not very many low profile graphics cards out there that i'd call good.  Going to be hard to do anything with this box.

I'd say this is a better deal and has a warranty.

Walmart still has the best refurb deals. 

 

$232 for 3rd gen i5 3470 8gb and 2tb hdd.

Pop in a $180 rx 580 + $30 evga psu and instant 1080p/1440p ultra box.

So $150 cheaper than the ryzen box. I think the ryzen beats the i5 somewhat on synthetic tests since its a much newer cpu but they perform roughly the same for gaming and more than powerful enough to not bottleneck the rx 580.
