for web browsing this thing isn't bad at all. especially since it has a dedicated graphic card.
but if you break this down...
AMD mobo fm2+ chipset = ~$60 max (i recently bought a used one for $20) r9 360 = ~$80 max (bought a used one r9 380 for $60) 8gb 1600 ddr3 = ~$10 (I had a few of these already) 2tb 7.2k hdd= ~$70 new? (I bought a used 2tb from eBay for $25) windows (if you don't activate free) a case = $60 max (I bought a cheap xion one for $20) amd apu = ~$90 (better one, eg 7850) (bought a used one from someone for $60)
add all that together: 90+60+70+80+60+10 = ~$370 price I had for a small media center build/minor gaming (60+20+25+60+20=$185) <-but this took me a period of 3 months to gather all the parts.
so if you want to build this exact machine with similar specs, it will cost more than buying this pre-built Dell
