  • APU with a GPU arhhh

  • Any more i5 machine bundles Coming up soon?

  • Add this Seagate Expansion Desktop Hard Drive 4TB $99 @ JB Hi-Fi
    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/482919 and you are good.. unless you run into RAM issues with only 8gb but I think most games should be fine at this entry level with 8 gigs of ram.

    As someone who has a lot of games installed on an external mechanical hard drive which is not a ssd.. I honestly do not notice the long load times.

    OS boot times however SSD is a must big difference every day when getting into your home screen.

    • To others reading please do not use external HDD for games. The performance is abysmal.

      • Nope.

        I have confirmed this myself.

        I have been using https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-Expansion-Desktop-External-ST...

        Seagate Expansion Desktop 8TB External Hard Drive HDD – USB 3.0 for PC Laptop (STEB8000100) since July 2017.

        I also have a SSD and yes the extra few seconds can be great but for the same price I can get 8x more storage going HDD.

        Sure if you are rich get SSD's for everything but what I am saying is if you want value for money the price premium of a SSD is like going from a RTX 2080 Ti to a Titan RTS.. sure the Titan is better but for what you pay for it the value is totally lost.

        Depends at the end of the day how many games you want installed if you only rotating less than 5 games then SSD will make sense but if you are like me and have a lot more than 5 games installed then HDD makes more sense.

        At the end of the day it comes down to how much money you want to spend but mechanical HDD is still a very great option, I use it everyday for gaming and screen recording my SSD is only being used by my OS and certain programs.

        • Mechanical HDDs are okay for sure but that external drive is 50-100% slower than an internal drive. It's fine if you don't mind it but it makes me cringe.

          • @Drpepper666: All I care about really is value.

            This was my first build so I wanted to see how bad using the worst components would feel like and it wasn't that bad.

            My next upgrade will be using near top of the line technology for everything but for the cheapest most value choice it is not bad.

            Like if I went to a nvme the upgrade wouldn't be realistically hugely noticeable in a gaming workload just a couple of seconds here and there and honestly it is not that bad.

            I'm on discord or chilling most of the time so those extra waiting loading seconds aren't the worst in the world for me but for a speed runner or hard core competitive gamer it might.

            But at the end of the day to each their own everybody plays and buys hardware and games for different reasons but from a value standpoint or budget build it is pretty nice.

          • @Drpepper666: When I was shopping for storage I was looking for $/TB because the load times between getting something for 50% increased cost is not something I will sweat much about.. it is like going from 16gb of ram to 32gb of ram.. it is nice and your pc can multi task more but you won't notice the difference much unless your specific use case scenario is very read access times dependent which for me is not.

            That saved money can go to other areas like a better GPU, better monitor or even more games.

            It is all about how low you wanna go to save money for other stuff because at the end of the day your system and overall budget on your hobby or work machine has a limit so for me saving money not getting a big SSD is worth it especially with most SSD's still having limited amount of data writes so depending on your use case scenario SSD's are expected to not last very long compared to mechanical HDD's.

            Scenario and everything matters for example in a laptop movement affects mechanical whereas SSD is not affected.

            But yeah trimming the fat is important when budgeting a good value PC and SSD technology still has a long way to go more so than other pieces of technology in your machine so I can still wait.

      • An external drive is a rotten idea.
        It might work, but users will often suffer reduced speed and/or latency, and/or some apps not working from external media.
        It will work for some people in some cases, but given the above you're better off spending about the same and buying an internal drive.
        Installation is easy and plenty of people around to help.

        • I am after $/TB.

          What is the best hard drive $/TB be it SSD, external, internal, nvme whatever.

    • As someone who has a lot of games installed on an external mechanical hard drive which is not a ssd.. I honestly do not notice the long load times.

      Have you actually played those games on an SSD to compare? Sure for some games it might not make a big difference, but there's no way I can go back to a HDD and say I don't notice a difference. Especially since the HDD you linked would likely be 5400 RPM and before switching to an SSD I never had my games on anything lower than 7200 RPM.

      • Yes played on both.

        I have 2 SSD's on my system to run tests and the difference for me is barely noticeable but I am not a hardcore gamer just a large variety gamer so if I was going for a record or something I would go with a SSD but playing games from shooters to strategy to platformers to racing games I honestly don't see much difference it would be like getting the top of line Acer Predator Nvidia Monitor versus something that costs half or even a third of that price sure the premium is nice and you might not notice certain features like less tearing or smoother frame rate here and there but the second best option is still not bad.

        Obviously always aim for higher but the SSD to mechanical HDD gap is not the end of the world.. yes it is nice and I suggest getting it for OS boot times definitely or anything that might need crazy access times like a database workload or something but for most gaming you won't notice the difference honestly you might load 10 seconds faster in a cod/battlefield game at the start or start up times might be reduced but if you are at the budget end trying to figure out whether to get a RX 570 or RX 580 that difference you save forgoing a SSD can mean you can play on higher settings or get another stick of ram or even a larger or faster framerate monitor.

        I am just saying the money is well spent elsewhere it is near the realm of getting 32gb of ram vs 16gb of ram for gaming.. almost useless unless your specific game is load intensive which honestly most games I play are not.

  • anymore budget end???? coming???

    no monitors - id love an i3/i5 or older ryzen with a 580 or similar level card for the 500 dollar to 700 dollar region (lower the better of course haha).

    was wanting to pick up an old PC but it had a 4th Gen I5 and r9 390 for like $400 which seems…. not as good considering its age lol

    thanks Luke :)

      Will get that done for you. We can do i3 or Ryzen 3 for the same price.

      • cheers mate! appreciate it.

        will this be a new sort of offer or do I have to email directly?

        cheers mate :)

        in fact - can I email you about a "custom" of sorts PC ?

        cheers :)

  • This would make a great HTPC. You could even sell the GPU and recoup some cash and just use the iGPU on the APU. Would certainly run plex really well. Hmmm… tempting. Just have to load it up some drives, which could help be covered by the GPU sale. Could sell the GPU for around $150 maybe and get about 4TB of drives for the HTPC. All round would be a fantastic HTPC if you can live with the cheap looking case, maybe get a different case in the future.

  • Could you do an option without the GPU?

  • Hey Luke,

    I was a bit slow on this deal https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/484065

    Was wondering if anything similar was coming up with a monitor combo?

    Thanks!

  • Ay Luke Postage for me is coming up as following:

    Subtotal $649.00
    Shipping $68.00

    Total: 717

    Can this be correct

      That's two times the standard shipping. Do you have 2 items in your cart? If not I'm not sure why it would do that, but I'd be happy to immediately refund the second shipping fee when you purchase and let me know.

      • Actually Correct

        i did have two items but went back and changed it to one, but some reason the postaged stay at that, i havent made the purchase so i will sign out and then re-add the purchase

        Cheers
