Description

Primary use will be translation work and internet browsing. Wanted the ability to drive at least 2 screens and wanted to keep power consumption down so I went with an APU. SSD is really quick for what the PC is being used for. No complaints about anything really. Total cost came out to about $530.

Should be good for its purpose :P.

Nice build. Have you tried overclocking the RAM to improve the performance of the A10?

Haven't yet. Just got it running at 1866. Since its mostly for doc sheets and browsing instead of gaming I don't think the difference will be noticeable. Benchmarks definitely show an improvement in FPS in games by upping memory speed though.

Damn, that's like total overkill for that kind of work. But hey, nice build.

Haha maybe just a bit but overkill is always better than underkill.

How was the case to work with? I'm thinking of something similar.

It was a pleasure for this style of build. Probably wouldn't try to do anything too high end in it due to lack of space for cable management but overall it was a great case to work in for cheap.

Would recommend a new PSU, Corsair makes good units but their green labeled units are garbage.

I'd say at least a black-and-white label unit will get you by.

And I'd say something like the Rosewill Line-M would've been cheaper and also be the exact same thing (generally).

But still +2.
