Now this is up my alley... do you think it would be worth it to save some money and just buy a 240 hb A400 SSD, and then buy a hard drive for mass storage with it?

ImperiousBattlestar 1 point 1 month ago

Not really (the MX500 is much better than the A400)

Get the bigger drive (also allows for some bigger programs to be stored), and get a HDD a little bit later.

alright will do. First priority is picking up that GPU cause thats an insane price for it, and sale ends tomorrow.

That PSU has no reviews out for it.

Why ITX?

adamboyce556 submitter 1 point 1 month ago

I don’t really like the psu either. Seems sketchy, heard bad things about crappy EVGA psus

Why are you getting a Mini ITX motherboard? And also, why are you picking a Micro ATX case to go with that?

Tilipirke 1 point 1 month ago

It’s compatible with both, cheap and looks pretty nice.

Tilipirke 1 point 1 month ago

I chose the motherboard cause it has built in wifi and I doubt they need anything more than a micro itx board.

adamboyce556 submitter 1 point 1 month ago

I’ve already purchased the case that’s why. And I don’t mind mini ITX but if I’m buying one I’ll put more into the strix model
