if you're not gaming, why bother with a graphics card?


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

This is my 500 dollar build

 

processor: ryzen 5 2600 (120)

Motherboard: B450 (70)

Ram: You could go for 8 gb, for about 30 to 40 dollars, or double that for 16. Go for something that is 3000 plus mhz(30 to 40)

Graphcis card: gtx 1650 super (160)

storage: some kind of 240 gb ssd, from say kingston. Should be about 30 to 40 dollars or even cheaper. 

Hard drive: Your choice, get 7200 rpm though. 

Case: cooler master micro atx tower.(50 doolars

power supply: https://www.amazon.com/GOLDEN-FIELD-ARESZE-650W-Computer/dp/B07MLZ69HW/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=power+supply+golden+field&qid=1595686835&sr=8-2

brand is not quality. and if you're referring to the a400, that's a terrible tlc dramless ssd.

PSU unknown brand but i like them

Unknown brand is never a good idea unless you know what the PSU actually delivers (not wattage), He wouldn't need a GPU and getting 1650 is not good at all, APU is enough


Reminder⚠️

I'm just speaking from experience so what I say may not work 100%

Please try searching up the answer before you post here but I am always glad to help

That is true, he could go for a apu, but I dont know his exact work flow, and he said to have a graphics card, so i put in a pretty budget friendly card.

I have been using this same one for the past year. My bad I meant to just send the product page they have a 450 watt or 550 watt options as well.

Well an APU is more than enough for "office work"

I think I misunderstood his requirements I was thinking more of editing, or occasional games, or so kind of designing.

unless you have reviews (not customer reviews), that say it's a reliable and good unit, just recommend a known good unit.
