Just a simple budget build for the In-laws. I build my wife a PC and she has really enjoyed it so her mom asked if i could build her one for around $400. The driving force was cost which I how came to pick the parts that were used. This will basically be an HTPC. It's really only going to be used to stream, look at Facebook, do basic office work and maybe some very light photo and video editing. I went with AM4 since it has good upgrade potential and if down the road the 200ge isn't cutting I can get a 2400g or 3400g. The 16 GB of ram might seem unnecessary but I just wanted to make sure it was snappy for them to use and also that I hopefully won't need to upgrade for a long time.
It gets the job done so I really can't complain. Since it's AM4 a future upgrade will be simple.
Had to fool around with audio drivers for a while but other then that had no issues
It seems to be working fine so far and didn't have any issues.
Good for the price. I've seen a lot of mixed reviews on these but this one and the one i have in my wifes PC haven't given me any trouble yet. Maybe I'm just lucky.
You get what you pay for. Not much space to work in and hard to cable manage.
It's cheap but I don't see this system ever getting north of 100w in its current configuration, maybe 150-200w with upgrades so it should be just fine for this build. I don't think i would go for this psu for any type of gaming PC though.
It's Windows. It works. I decided to just shell out for a legit key so that if they need to call tech support i know it will work as they live about 6 hours away.
Open box at Best Buy I just happened to see.
