With my time off, I had a chance to build a new PC.  This beauty was relatively inexpensive ($300), but can handle overclocking with great coolness and stability, thus yielding results similar or better than machines costing 2x to 3x times more (i.e. i5 and i7 with dedicated apu)!  My question, will AMD release a Ryzen CPU/APU combination that will allow casual gamers and users to build a "cheap" priced desktop to handle basic gaming and office tasks without the need of a dedicated graphic card?
