Description

I built this for light gaming and web browsing and what not. A lot of the parts were bought while on sale so it was a lot cheaper too. One tiny catch was the the cpu fan was so tight when I put it on that there wasn't even any room to lock it in.

Great solid little build. How much was the total? Good motherboard choice as well, it's definitely something you'll be able to recycle if you decide to build a new computer later, and it's Crossfire capability is a plus if you decide to upgrade your graphics card. I would have to agree with previous posts about the SSD and the Power Supply Unit however. Although I personally have not used a Logisys, I have read many reviews that it's one to stay away from, especially if you're wanting longevity for your build. You should check out http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx as it shows a list of different power supplies based of tier. The SSD is not terrible, and for $40 it's not that bad especially if all you're going to be doing is installing your OS on it.

Yeah the only thing I wanted to put on the SSD was the OS which is why I just went with the smallest, cheapest one I could find that would hold Windows 8. Also I think the power supply does suck. Randomly like 5-20 minutes into a game the whole computer just shuts off. Could there be any other reason for that?

Agreed, that SSD better have some cyberpunk speeds for price per gigabyte.

He just said it cost him $40. :P

That said, for $40 he could have also probably found a 60-64GB with 500+ read/write.

Well then never mind! Didn't see that comment when I made the statement, so I assumed he payed original price

That PSU is going to die, and I would have gone with a better known brand for the SSD. Also, I would have gone with a 7770 for around $30 more and get just that much performance out of it.

I don't think there is anything particularly wrong with A-Data they use Intel flash and a Sandforce controller from what I have read.

I'm just saying he should have gone with a more popular brand, such as Samsung, Intel, Corsair, or Kingston.

It was on sale as stated above. No one I have seen has add a problem with that drive.

That PSU is going to die on you any time now. Logisys is one of the brands to avoid. I still would have avoided the SSD too, even though it was $40. Maybe a Corsair, Crucial, Intel, or Kingston drive would have been better.

Blew right up. No, I figured I didn't really need the site since the build was done.
