I was poking around a TigerDirect sales letter I get in my email and noticed that they had a sale on a barebones FX 6350 computer. As it stands today, that barebones PC costs $389.99. I began to wonder, could I make the same build with a GPU cheaper than on TD? So, I replicated the barebones build on PCpartpicker (I had to plug in the RAM cost from TD) and added a XFX Radeon HD 7870 to it and then preceded to compare it to the TD barebones with the same GPU.
I want to know what you guys think of this and if you think my build would be a good $650 budget build with the parts that are present.
I was able to shave off roughly $20-40 off the TD barebones. The price range varies because I do not know the shipping costs for the RAM.
Edit: Put in new link for TD clone build
