OP's build on website (roughly).

OP WELCOME. I am always so happy seeing new people looking into getting a quality computer! Welcome to the community! I am going to give you my advice and take it with a grain of salt. I am biased and my mentality is get best bang for your buck but if it cost 20-30$ for quality than jump on that!

First off OP, I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend building/picking your own parts on retailers websites or PCPP (pcpartpicker.com). You will save loads of money compare to buying from a site like the one you were on. Also, knowing you built your own PC just makes it even better! You will cherish it more! So lets get to it...

RAM: Yes they are offering a promo for a "FREE" upgrade but the promo is a bit scary. They don't even tell you all the specs on the RAM! Serious bothers me. You could get a DDR3 2133 with CAS of 9-11. Even though this isn't that big of a deal, it still matters a bit! Why pay 83$ when you could spend 5$ dollars for the better quality one. Also, the RAM they chose is a bit pricey at the moment. I would suggest going with something cheap like DDR3 1600-1866 with CAS 9 or 10.

Storage: Doesn't even give a brand or even model! This scares me a bit because they could just throw you a cheap brand with a model that could be shit. I just chose the cheapest 1TB at 7200RPM with 32 cache.

Video Card: Again doesn't even tell you the brand. You won't even know the clock speed or what type of cooler it has! This might not seem much to you but it is a big deal.

PSU: 600W 80+ PSU sounds good to new people but you could do soooo much better. If you throw like 10-20 dollars at the PSU you could easily get 500-650Watt GOLD or even if you wanted to save I know Corsair has some cheap BRONZE PSUs.

Optical Drive: They just chose the cheapest one and at the moment it is LG. There is a better one out there for the price/performance (ASUS).

OS: I highly recommend taking an OS on an older computer if you have one and using that product key for your new computer. If you don't have that option than actually 60$ for Windows 8.1 isn't bad. Although if you are a student you could get it cheaper from Microsoft. I pray in the future Microsoft makes their OS free. Would help so many builders out.

Keyboard: I couldn't even find that model. I don't even know if it is a mechanical keyboard. I just put 30$ just because that's how much it looks like. (If you don't know about mechanical keyboards come over to /r/mechanicalkeyboards. Great community and they have lots of information regarding mechanical keyboards.)

Mouse: I don't know too much about it so I won't comment.

Cooler: The cooler you chose is so old and to be honest it probably doesn't even perform that well. You could do better.

SSD: I seriously love the EVO and the MX100. Such great SSDs for the price. However, at the moment this baby is killing it. SanDisk Ultra II:

Overall OP build your own computer. I even limited parts to Amazon and Newegg and also turned off rebates and it was cheaper. For basically a 1260$ build you could buy all your parts now and get better quality for the same price than buying from that website. I bet you could even fit a monitor in there if you bought your parts on sale!

I HIGHLY recommend buying your parts over time if you can. There is really no reason to buy them all at once unless you are in need for a computer. Come over to /r/buildapcsales. We have such a wonderful community and everyone is very helpful.

The changes:

  • Full sized H170 board. More connectors and only a bit more expensive.
  • 1x8GB ram. That board supports up to 64GB like almost all skylake baords, meaning that 4x4GB does not even use half of its capacity. Get 1x8GB to upgrade later easily.
  • Cheaper SSD
  • Better gpu. The R9 380 costs even less than that GTX 960 and is faster.
  • Alternative case suggested, but that's up to you.
  • Better psu. The Thermaltake is not horrible, but this one is a lot more efficient.
u/shrimpossible · 3 pointsr/thinkpad

Go with the T460. The screen size is much better for programming. Get the FHD IPS screen.

You can find the RAM cheaper: https://www.amazon.com/Crucial-Single-PC3L-12800-204-Pin-CT102464BF160B/dp/B006YG8X9Y

Any laptop DDR3L will do. You chose the correct part, just not the best deal.

Check out this SSD (or go one size higher, partially paid for with the money you save on RAM :) ): https://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Ultra-2-5-Inch-Height-SDSSDHII-240G-G25/dp/B00M8ABEIM

Any 2.5" SATA SSD will do.

Don't pay Geek Squad. You'll be paying money just for someone to unscrew a few screws and insert a card into a slot, and another into another, then rescrew the screws.

Your T460 will have two RAM slots. Buy your 8GB stick, insert it with the 4GB, and you will have 12GB. Ignore people on /r/buildapc; you're not building a PC and they've somewhat confused or misled you. In this case you will have read about dual channel RAM, but it's negligible for your cases compared to the benefits of more RAM and/or upgradeability later (so I'm saying you should prefer one 8GB stick over 4+4 to enable upgrading later more easily, which outweighs dual-channel benefits that you won't notice). Plus, with 8+4, the matching 4GB of each can be in dual channel mode anyway.

u/Technikgeiz · 2 pointsr/SuggestALaptop

What about an Acer Aspire ES 15 ES1-512-C1YL?

Intel Celeron and 4 GB RAM and 500 GB HDD.

http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B018486ZT4/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1638&creative=19454&creativeASIN=B018486ZT4&linkCode=as2&tag=foli-15-bo-03-21

But if you know how to open a Notebook and can imagine to upgrade it with an addiitinal SSD (Sandisk suggestion from oez17 is super!) then try this refurbished business notebooks on amazon:

This Dell Latitude http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B004Y7GSC4/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1638&creative=19454&creativeASIN=B004Y7GSC4&linkCode=as2&tag=foli-15-bo-03-21

or this Lenovo Lenovo ThinkPad T410
http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00KY1GO0A/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1638&creative=19454&creativeASIN=B00KY1GO0A&linkCode=as2&tag=b34m3rd347er-21

However both Notebooks are well known as business notebooks. Our company for example prefers Dell Quality and our IT upgrades them with an ssd without any problems.

So my suggestion: Acer Aspire if you do not want to put hands on it or otherwise if you are able to open a notebook then Lenovo T410 or Dell Latitude and upgrade wit with this SSD from sandisk:
http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00M8ABEIM/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1638&creative=19454&creativeASIN=B00M8ABEIM&linkCode=as2&tag=foli-15-bo-03-21

Your total cost are around 280 EUR then.

Kind Regards

u/monsieurperfect · 2 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

I agree, everything is max 30$ off....cyber monday should at least be 40% before even being consider a cyber monday deal....Really dissapointed...having said that, I did get a sweet ssd at a lighting deal friday for 74$...250g

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00M8ABEIM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

even with shipping handling and customs, its still a steal.

u/cupperoni · 2 pointsr/OkCupid

I ordered it through Amazon. I'm not a patient person dealing w/ lines and/or stupid shoppers. Plus I wanted to avoid sales tax.

Should get here Monday. It's the SanDisk Ultra II 240GB for $84

u/smackythefrog · 2 pointsr/mac

I feel like your HDD is the bottleneck. You said it's out of your budget and that's fine, but there is nothing to add that would compensate for an SSD.

Consider getting a smaller, cheaper one? Not a 2 TB one, but the iMac has two bays, right? A 256 GB can be had for under $100 and you can use it for the OS and some apps but keep the data on the 2 TB.

Otherwise, the 12 GB of RAM is a lot and your CPU is just fine.

Downgrading the OS may help. I personally found Mavericks to be the last "snappy" OS on my 2010 MBP. High Sierra is just a mess right now with the betas so don't go there.

Here's the decent, cheap SSD. Just verify what type of SATA the 2011 iMac has. This is SATA III.

u/npine · 2 pointsr/buildapc

How do you manually add a part on PC Part Picker? For example, this Samsung Ultra II 240GB SSD is $100 on Amazon. (That's gotta be too good to be true, right? Or is it a rip off? I don't know!) But I can't find it anywhere under storage in the parts list.

u/Dyslectic_Sabreur · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I can already see a couple problems. Can you also specify what kind of graphics design do you? 2D or 3D? what programs? long render times?

The problems:

  • CPU

    I see you have a CPU cooler but that is only needed if you are going to overclock your CPU. The CPU you have is not a K version ( the K version of your CPU is called i-5 6600K). You will need a K version CPU if you are going to overlock.

    You can change the CPU to a i-5 6600K and look up a guide on how to overlock if you would like to get a extra ~25% performance. Also if you are overclocking you will need a motherboard that supports ocerlocking. If you don't want to overclock then you don't need to buy a CPU cooler.

  • RAM

    I would get a single stick of 8GB RAM since it is easier to upgrade later on. You might also want to buy 16Gb of RAM but that depends on what graphical programs you use.

  • SSD

    I always like to use SSD of knows brand, I don't know this brand but the reviews seem oke. I can maybe recommend you to buy a Sandisk Ultra II (64$ on amazon for one that only has damage to packaging). It is a bit more money but you will have a good SSD that is twice as big.

  • GPU

    See /u/nokmanoks2
u/Okieant33 · 2 pointsr/GlobalOffensive

Well, mainly I needed a new CPU because my PC would shut off completely. I thought it was the PSU but when I ran Prime 95 and stress tested the CPU, I got the same result and my PC would shut off.

So I upgraded with these parts:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019EYYNP0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B010T6CG7E/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005O65JXI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 (haven't installed this yet)

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00M8ABEIM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 (had a 200GB SATA HDD and it was old and slow. SSD has really helped the speed out)

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MMLUYPG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I'm keeping my eye out for the RX480 when that comes out. It's supposed to be as good as the GTX 980 and only cost $200. Waiting on benchmarks with heavy breathing.

u/berserkering · 2 pointsr/buildapc

This OCZ was and this Sandisk is going for $84.99, which IMO is a pretty good deal. I'm currently waiting for the right deal on an ssd and these two were very tempting. Couldn't decide on the OCZ and not too sure about the Sandisk. Not a big deal though as I'm patient and can wait however long.

I did get a sweet deal on shadow of mordor for $19.99 so there's that.

edit: Got Wii U bundle with two games for $260 and Mario Kart 8 for $30. Today has been a good but expensive day.

u/wwoodi · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Personally i would recommend changing your power supply to [this] (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371073&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=)

Personally i would get rid of that garbage CX series power suppy and go for the one i linked instead. It has 5 year warranty and very good build quality. It will be futureproof in case you ever decide to upgrade.

The 750W may seem like overkill now but it will last you a long time with great performance.


If you don't want to spend the $69.99 i would recommend getting the EVGA 500W B power supply which is $40.

You could also save roughly $26 with this instead of the ssd you listed above. It has pretty much the same performance.

u/nsge · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I don't know which pc case you have. It may have SSD mounting bracket built-in. SSD is always better than HDD if you want higher speeds but lower space. I don't use amazon at all but for around 80-100$ I'd recommend those:
1 - (30% off)
... 2
... 3

u/SaxyGeek · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I've heard good things about this one, but I haven't looked into SSDs in depth since I built my PC in 2012. I would suggest making a new thread so you can get a wider variety of answers. If you want to spend a little more, an 850 EVO is always a great choice.

u/Alakazam · 1 pointr/buildapc

Base pc at 180

1050ti mini

240gb SSD

All together it's about 430 bucks. It comes with a legit copy of Windows, and in case you need a new PSU (you shouldn't) you have plenty of budget for it.

u/IAmNamedMatt · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

WOW long link. I was hoping to get 2 of those and add a little bit of money or maybe the skin will go up by then. My current HDD is failing thats why I am kinda desperate to sell this :/

u/warriorx559 · 1 pointr/buildapc

So I'm ready to add a SSD to my system and I have all the parts ready to order and I was looking for any opinions before I buy the parts.

Amazon:
>SanDisk Ultra II 240GB

>Corsair Dual SSD Mounting Bracket

>Monoprice 18-Inch SATA III 6.0 Gbps Cable

>Total=$90.72 (Shipping 5-8 days)

or

Newegg:

>SanDisk Ultra II 240GB

>ICY DOCK EZ-Fit Lite MB290SP-B

>Coboc Model SC-SATA3-18-LL-BK-90

>Total=$89.29 (Shipping 4-7 days)

Edit: Moved comment to current thread.

u/DoesBoKnow · 1 pointr/buildapc

So if I bought this one then it should come with the appropriate software? I didn't scroll down far enough in the description when I bought it lol

u/Aljrljtljzlj · 1 pointr/ShieldAndroidTV

Yes, it will work. I used enclosure from the same company but I took one with additional USB 3.0 hub attached to the enclosure. This way you will not loose that USB port and even gain 3 more while having an SSD.
This is the one: www.amazon.de/gp/aw/d/B00T2OD5Z2

I took Sandisk SSD Ultra II. This one: https://www.amazon.de/gp/aw/d/B00M8ABEIM

At that time when I bought it I did intensive research and took this one mostly for the reason it uses new memory chips and of course the speed. I had not so good experience with Transcend memory cards but you need to research their SSDs.

u/jonzombie7 · 1 pointr/buildapc

switch out to this ram its the same spec but cheaper

Hey everyone I'm looking at a few upgrades for my now ageing build... My current specs are:


Amd A10-5800k 3.8Ghz
ASUSTeK A55BM-E
GeForce 650
8GB RAM
Corsair VS350W


And I was thinking of going for an RX480, new PSU and an SSD.

How do these look in terms of brands etc? Are there better alternatives? Better places to buy from?

u/WeaselDefender · 1 pointr/buildapc

Thank you so much! Would something like this be a good SSD?

u/brufercan · 1 pointr/buildapc

I've been wanting to buy an SSD since quite a few time and now that black friday has come I'm going to do it. But I'm not sure on what SSD I should buy. I'm not willing to pay more than 80€ ($85ish) and i have thought of three options; Samsung 750 EVO 250GB, Crucial MX300 270GB and SanDisk Ultra II 240GB.

Since the 850 EVO is slightly more expensive and I'd prefer not to spend that much money unless it's worth it, and the extra space between 240GB and 275GB is not significant for me, which would be my best option? Thanks.

u/486217935 · 1 pointr/buildapc

You might want to consider the SanDisk Ultra II on Amazon or Newegg. It's $85, which is a really good deal, and it's 240 GB. It might be slightly slower than the EVO but you really won't notice the difference, and I think you might benefit more from the space.

What will you be putting on the SSD? I don't know too much about cloning, but I think you could pretty easily clone your HDD to your SSD and also put League on it.

u/alexj9626 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Somebody is selling me this SSD. Is that one better than this one?. I ordered the latest but if the other is better i would buy it.

u/msc125 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Thanks for the reply

The mobo supports DDR3 1333, so I think I'll remove the old RAM DIMM (whatever it is), and replace with two 8Gb ones. Rather than match the existing....... CPU-Z is clocking it at 665.1 Mhz???

and yes, I think it will be best to get a PCIe card. I'm in the UK, so will probably get this from Amazon;

http://www.amazon.co.uk/StarTech-com-Port-SATA-Express-Controller/dp/B003GS8VA4/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1456927817&sr=1-1&keywords=pci-e+sata

and this SSD;

Is all that reasonable/ compatible?

Again, thanks!

EDIT: just realised re: RAM speed, it's DDR.... so double the 665.... sorry

u/Timonster · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

i swear, this is the only mature performance boost for the whole system in the last 10 years. (besides getting a beast of a GPU of course) but still, your system is slow without SSD. never go back. you don't need it for Data, just for your OS and the important programms.
can't stress enough ;)

u/Natemiester · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

Thanks for the response. One more question, how does it compare to the Sandisk Ultra II?

u/iamsumo · 1 pointr/macbook

I just put a 240GB SanDisk SSD in my mid-2012 MBP.

Runs like a dream.

u/Crionifer · 1 pointr/buildapc

You might be interested in the SanDisk Ultra II.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

An 850 EVO 120G floats @ ~$65 USD on Amazon for some sellers, if you don't mind Used.

Kingston HyperX Savages 120G float @ ~$62 on Amazon and are generally pretty good.

If you need a 240G, the PNY CS1311 looks like a better budget SSD than a BX200. A Sandisk Ultra II can also be found on Amazon for about the same price, and it has better benches.

You're going to have some heavy trade-offs for that price point though. Whether it comes to performance or capacity. You can see the large discrepency between budget SSDs and higher-end ones in this review.

u/wannabuyameme · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

That is a sexy build, and almost identical to my own. The only think that I can think of adding would be an SSD, but that's completely optional and just a quality of life thing that doesn't impact gaming. Overall, it's a nice build- my 6600k + 1070 kicks ass.

u/TheGasManic · 1 pointr/buildapc

Better SSD $103 AUD posted.

Also, if this is a true gaming rig, you don't need a processor that powerful to prevent bottle necking for a 960. Either get a 970 / 390 (Prices should indeed drop, but maybe not hugely until as late as august) or save yourself money and get a cheaper CPU (i3-6100).

Additionally, you can overclock even non K series skylake CPU's if you have a Z170 board with the right bios (Something worth looking into if you're game).

u/Fooch17 · 1 pointr/buildapc

I looked at your case and it looks like it has SSD mounts built into the it so it will go with your build you may need an addition sata cable if your mobo only comes with 2 but they are dirt cheap. If you need any help making partitions for the drives there are tutorials or you can ask me. For a ssd I recommend Samsung or Sandisk

u/Fraxian · 1 pointr/buildapc

Hi, I'm wondering why some SSDs have the same price with different speeds for example the PNY XLR8 and the Sandisk Ultra II Is there a difference? Or Is it just just the name brand?

u/xFrostbite13x · 1 pointr/buildapc

no, no one used that and i guarantee it's crap. if the R7 SSD is two tiers higher, this should be an awful SSD
just get this for $5 more, it's much better than your SSD Plus: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00M8ABEIM/?tag=pcpapi-20

  1. You don't need a CD drive. You can install Windows using a USB Flash drive.

  2. If you are a student, see if you can get a free copy of Windows through onthehub.com. Save 80 bucks there if you can.

  3. That solid state drive is way too small. I'd go with a 250 GB or 500 GB model of the Sandisk Ultra II or the Samsung 850 EVO. Unless you have some reason to go for such a small drive (planning on having multiple drives).

  4. The case you have listed is really expensive. If you're attached to the look of it or something, that's fine. But I spent $20 on my case and it works perfectly. There's a great selection of cases in the $50 range.

  5. I'd go with everyone's favorite power supply, the EVGA G2.

  6. If you can wait, the AMD RX 480 graphics card is coming out in about a week and will likely blow the GTX 970 out of the water, at a $200 price point. Paying $300 for the GTX 970 would be silly right now. Either wait and get a 480 or wait til after the 480 releases and see if the 970 goes way down in price.

  7. You have a micro ATX motherboard with a full ATX case - meaning your MOBO will fit, but you could fit a full ATX motherboard with more features, or get a smaller case. Look up the dimensions of ATX cases - they're big.

  8. If you're running Math programs for school, look and see what programs you'll be running and see if it makes sense to get an i7 instead of the i5.

    All of this in mind... a $932 build with better power supply, graphics, and SSD. Doesn't include OS, so see if you can get that through school. If you want to put the i7-6700k instead, it comes to around $1040.

Would you consider a cheaper CPU with an SSD? With a G3258 you could afford a quieter cooler and a 240gb SSD and save about $25.
