  • That small SSD isn't really worth it (120GB will fill up quite quickly)
Moop1337 1 point 26 days ago

Meh. Good enough for booting Windows and getting AMD Storemi. It wouldn't have been added if there wasn't an extra $20 laying around.

connor333 1 point 25 days ago

had 120gb on my build for 4 years. Sure, more SSD is nice, but for 20 bucks it's well worth having an OS system that boots so much faster. (plus you can usually stick your fav game on there).

Case isn't the best and the PSU is probably low end (I didn't check its tier) but if you wanted maximum CPU and GPU this is what you are going to get from intel.

ImperiousBattlestar 2 points 26 days ago

The PSU tier is totally irrelevant, look for proper professional reviews of the unit

Allan_M_Systems 2 points 26 days ago

Lots of people have maintained PSU "tier" lists over the years at various forums. The point of these is to organize popular PSU's into quality tiers based on as much information about them is available, to include professional reviews.

staffsMike 1 point 25 days ago

I do wonder how many builders would understand the content that is typically included in a thorough PSU review.

I'd be surprised if people read more than the conclusion which while valid, is akin to simply looking at the tier list which the review has most likely played a role in gaining its ranking on said list.

It's a solid reference point but yes a review is always helpful!

staffsMike 1 point 26 days ago

Threw in an SSD which took it over budget.

Maximum AMD
