Trying real hard to land on that $500 mark while setting myself up to spend the least amount of money "twice" down the road when I turn this into the PC I actually wanted.
Most of what I'm looking for in this build is being able to run PCSX2 or Dolphin or the like smoothly at hopefully 720p at least. I also have a modest Steam and GOG library but nothing extremely demanding. Borderlands 1+2 or Skyrim SE heavily modded w/ ENB is about the most demanding I run hopefully 60fps without many hiccups.
I have a VIZEO E420i-B0 that I've been using as a monitor/tv and I'm happy with it. And sure if I'm entirely sold on overclocking in order to get the results I'm looking for.

So hopefully this shapes up to be a nice discreet quiet little gaming console for my living room.
Thanks in advance to anyone who took the time to pass on any advice or saw something i totally overlooked =]
