Attractive build. Cheap and reliable. Looks good to me.

From what I understand, these APU's love fast memory so I would suggest some 1866 memory and you could have even saved a couple bucks keeping it at the 4GB size. I too like it and think you did a very nice job.

The graphics need use fast memory. I don't think it would be a problem when the machine is for everyday use only.

Is that a buck I see?

What about the operating system? Also, you can get a kit of 8 GB's for around $50, I just picked up an 8 GB (4GB x 2) 1600MHz ram for $44.99.

Is there something special about the Corsair XMS3?

I saw the picture of the case's side and knew immediately that it was the Source 210. Good work!

My question is, did they need 1 TB? Looks really good. Very good price point too.

at that price who cares? you would pay the same for 500 GB.

That wasn't my point. My point was a cheap SSD for like 90$ would have been a good idea. Get a fast boot time.

Who cares about fast boot times? That was his budget. 15-20 secs difference when booting doesn't make a difference for most people. To be honest besides reliability SSD's aren't worth it imo. Not at current price's 0.90$ per GB is still quite a lot.

I care about fast boot times. My computer has the same type of hard drive and it takes about 5 to 10 minutes to boot. Just trying to helpful.

I have a 4 years old WD cavier blue and it boots in 20 secs top with windows 8 something is really wrong with your pc if it takes 5 to 10 mins to boot up.
