Selecting the right HW for a Steam Machine.

Surprising, an AM1 platform would do well for basic gaming but can't be evolved and the g3258 is cheap enough to upgrade it later without regrets but I seen that the Gtx 750 should be enough since the Ti perform the same on a phoronix benchmark so you save 30$...
