You can find some pretty decent OEM (gateway/acer/lenovo/etc) Intel G43 Based boards (as well as various G45/P45/Q45 & Q43) for around $20 on the internet; that are perfect for doing a 771 to 775 mod on, using something like an 80W E5450.

It feels good not having to "budget" for cheap shit. My desktop is a Liquid Cooled Core i9 extreme with a liquid cooled 2080Ti and 32GB of DDR4. 4TB SSD storage. Cost me around $5000. 34" gaming monitor. My 15" and 17" laptops both are Core i7, 32GB DDR4 and GTX 1080. Videos on my channel.

Is it an inside joke for Riley to be apart of the cheapest PCs because his introduction to ltt viewers was riley in a dumpster

This is amazing. I just noticed that the current intel onboard graphics is about 4 times faster than the graphics card they're using. Based on that you can just pair an i3-8100 with the onboard graphics and have a better gaming experience than what is possible with the 5450 and the crappy dual-core CPU they used.

I actually kind of like the humble HD5450. I bought mine for an HTPC I built in 2012 for $30 (Sapphire) and got a $15 rebate. That card died in 2016. Still, four years for a $15 card didn't hurt my feelings at all.

Ok, but what if you were smart about it and didn't buy the cheapest of absolutely everything, but made a few small concessions for some actual performance? Like just a little more ram. Or using an old Xeon? I think you could do much better for like $20 more.

Playing at 720p seems like it wasn't a good idea if the CPU was already running at 100% as that just puts more load on the CPU by pushing more frames at it that it might be able to handle. Technically I think it should of been ran at 1080 too IF the card supported it to see if performance was any better. (Specifically samish framerate but able to run GPU with higher graphic settings.) (I know many people are not going to get what I am saying but it's a known thing that when CPU bound, running at lower resolutions tends to make graphic card performance worse by pushing more frames than the CPU can keep up with. Higher resolution can mean less extra frames pushed on CPU, meaning more GPU utilization and less CPU related stuttering.)
