My cousins were running an upgraded HP Pavillion with two dead HDDs and they were looking for an upgrade. (see last picture)
My older cousin, who's now out of state at college, upgraded the Pavillion himself about 4 or 5 years ago. It had an FX-6300 and a GTX 650 Ti Boost. This eventually wasn't enough for him anymore and he got a new desktop. His sister continued to use the old one for gaming and school work, but it really started to slow down.
When the older cousin is back from school for vacation/etc, he wanted something that would be able to handle some light video editing. Then my littler cousin just needed something she could play games a bit better. They gave me a budget and I was off.
Ryzen was a no-brainier at this price point, so I went with the Ryzen 5 1400. Unfortunately, the budget only allowed for 8GB of RAM but apparently my cousin was able to get by on 8GB for his video editing. There's two slots left, so it can be upgraded without any issue.
I got the 770 from a friend for a crazy deal after I helped him swap it out for a new one in his rig. It's a nice step up from the 650 Ti Boost, and you can't go wrong with a deal like that.
They didn't need it to look fancy, so I threw it all into Source 210 and it was all set to go! Overall, I was happy what I did within the price range and happy I could get them a nice upgrade.
Great value for the price.
Nice BIOS and good build quality. Only 5 USB ports and 4 SATA ports, though. Nothing unexpected for a more budget oriented board. I had no issues bringing my RAM up to its rated speed.
Very nicely priced. I've used these in quite a few different builds and I haven't had any issues yet.
An older model, but still very high quality. As long as you aren't getting too close to the 620W it's rated at, I wouldn't worry about some of the outdated technologies in this PSU.
