+ Total (Australia):
100 Million Edition!!! Much ado about... green bits? OK, I admit it's pretty.
This system is a solid 1080p gamer, with a Skylake i3 and a GTX 960.
The i3-6100 is not something I'd suggest picking up new (nor is its successor the -7100), since the far cheaper G4560 is just as good when paired with a budget to mid-range graphics card. But used at the right price, it can be a sweet deal. I got this one together with a basic H110 motherboard, which is also plenty for a simple system like this.
The one hundred million edition of the GTX 960 is (Dr Evil associations aside) nothing special, just a solid 1080p card that is about the equivalent of the current-gen 1050 Ti but a lot cheaper used than those are new right now.
The only other part worth a particular mention here is the power supply, the Antec VP500P v2.
This one is not even 80+ rated, which may rule it out entirely in the minds of many, but the reason for that is to do with input range: the unit only handles 200-240 VAC, since it's targeted at specific regional markets, rather than the full 110-240 range required to qualify for 80+ certification, and that limitation has nothing to do with quality as such. I'll nip an 80+ rant in the bud, but suffice to say it's an OK PSU ;-)
As for the build itself, I admit I gave up on the cable management here :'( It was hot, I was tired, and the siren song of a solid side panel seduced me into roughly bunching it all up and knocking off for the day.
That's it for this one, cheers from Sensible Systems.
