$440 PC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I recently bought a desktop pc with a Ryzen 5 2400g, 16gb ddr4 2666mhz dual channel ram, 240gb ssd, gigabyte a320m s2h v2 mobo, 500W psu, wireless adaptor and a decent glass panel case($40). Is it a good deal for $440 considering it was a pre built computer?

Motherboard could be better. What power supply is it?

Yes, i was looking for a b450m motherboard, but it was way overpriced. About the psu, i think it was an evga one, but i dont think the type really matters that much.

Yes it does.

 

If it's a terrible power supply, then you should replace it ASAP.

I found it: https://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-Certified-Continuous-cooling-PS-SPD-0500NPCWUS-W/dp/B014W3EM2W/ref=mp_s_a_1_5?keywords=power+supply&qid=1562862911&s=gateway&sr=8-5

It's a thermaltake psu not evga sorry. What i meant in "it doesnt really matter" was that since it's a well known brand it should be good. Anyway thanks for the quick responses.

I have a question: Can i oc the ram, because i know for sure the cpu cant be oc.

Also is it good value for the money?

Every company makes good and bad products, so not quite.

Thermaltake does have good PSUs, but your particular one is a Tier 6 on our PSU Tier List.

With some small upgrades, it's a decent rig. Mainly power supply and motherboard. Everything else looks pretty solid.

So do you think i will get a good performance boost if im doing daily tasks and light gaming? ( if i can get it stable at 3000mhz).

Yeah, i know the mobo isnt that great, but i dont plan on overclocking the cpu and 16gb of ram seem more than enough for what i plan on using the pc for.

You should be fine. The power supply is my main concern.

I dont really know what model the power supply is. I just guessed it(they hadnt listed it in the specs), because all the other budget PCs this company builds uses this psu. I thought it was good since it had 4/5 stars on amazon and some great reviews...

I just asked them and im hoping to get a response.

Btw the community is great here. Whenever i post something, someone replies within 5mins. Thanks! 😊

It's a cheap power supply, quality isn't really the greatest. As I said earlier, that would be my priority for changing out.

It ain't worth even $300.

My country taxes 22% of the price and it was prebuilt, so thats the cheapest i could find. Also walmart and newegg dont ship to my country and amazon shipping prices cost a lot to get the item here.

Should have posted the price in your local currency.
