Follow-up to "Cheap Amazon PC" video(April 10, 2019)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Pretty sure people would be very interested in seeing "Cheapest Amazon PC ... that doesn't suck". For $304.72 USD with a mix of Amazon and Newegg pricing, I put together the following build list with all-new parts. I believe it would perform wonderfully as a basic office machine, HTPC, or even 'granny's rig'. Would love to see you build it, or better yet, come up with a better "non-suck" build for around the $300 pricepoint.

 

CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 2200G

 

Mainbaord: ASRock B450M-HDV R4.0 mATX

 

RAM: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR4-2400 GeiL Evo Spear AMD Edition

 

Storage: 1TB Western Digital Blue 7200RPM

 

Case & PSU: Rosewill R379-M Slim mATX Case(Comes with 300W Rosewill 80+ PSU)

That thing is a fire hazard. So yes, this rig you listed still sucks.

And yet you don't offer a better solution. You're one of those types, eh?

CX450M. Even a S12II would be better. Sure, they're much more expensive, but at least there's zero risk of a power supply explosion.

Except that the case in question uses a TFX PSU, and there really aren't many good ones of those left (at least, not without paying as much for your PSU as you do for the rest of your build). I've used that case/PSU combo a couple of times. Once for an HTPC I used for a month then sold without any fires, and once in my dad's R3 2200G system that, again, hasn't caught fire yet.

 

osewill does make some incredibly crap PSUs, but if I had to buy a case+PSU combo for some reason, it would be a Rosewill. In my experience, the bundled PSUs they use are the least arsony of the bunch.
