Budget-friendly, home office computer that the kids can play fortnite/minecraft on. My parameters were: low budget, fast for the money spent, enough to make the family happy (for now), and of course, the ability to upgrade later.
My opinion on each: CPU -- good entry-level processor w/integrated graphics for basic games. MOBO -- built-in wi-fi. Memory -- best reviews and bang for the buck. Storage -- definitely want SSD but debating over this m.2 or the 2.5" Samsung 860 Evo. my current plan is to start with the intel 660p and then add a Samsung 860 Evo 1GB later on. Case -- compact, nice window, great price. PSU -- good value and performance, enough for this build. Monitor -- already have it, will upgrade in the future. Keyboard -- the kids like this one...
Let me know what you think!
