Easily yes but unless you go for a low power card, your going to need to change the PSU in this.

Who the hell builds a computer with an i7-4790 Processor, 16 GB RAM and no dedicated graphics card or SSD?

This is stupid.
bokertov
Have it and not very happy.
Dosnt wake up after sleep.
Very noisy and slow to respond you wouldn't believe that it's a 16gb i7 pc

Actually, I would since it has a **** slow HDD in there. Add an SSD for Windows.

what are the advantages of downgrading to Windows 7 please?
1) Less of a learning curve, coming from Vista.
2) Your existing applications might not work in Win 10.
3) No adverts in the Start menu, no built-in spyware, no keylogger sending passwords back to M$.
You could probably upgrade your existing Dell to Win 7 for less than £20. But as your Dell is 8 years old, perhaps it's time to look at replacing it. Maybe consider another Dell with a Core-i3 / i5 plus SSD?

I'm in much the same position (currently have an 8 year old Dell Vostro 200) which is why I recommended as I did (4th Gen i5) in post #20. As Nenen has limited experience in installing PC parts however installing an SSD may not be something they'd want to do (although that is not difficult either).

Not wishing to derail this thread, but I have been looking at 3XS PCs from Scan.co.uk, specifically the Scan V15a system (I removed the DVD drive and OS from original spec and added an SSD, Bluray drive and wireless NIC)) and have the following:

- Fractal Design Core 1100 Case & Corsair 450W VS PSU
- ASUS A68HM-PLUS (Motherboard)
- AMD A10 7850K Black Edition, FM2+, Kaveri, Quad Core, 4.0GHz, AMD Radeon R7 720MHz, 95W, CPU
- 8GB (2x4GB) Corsair DDR3 Vengeance Pro Series Silver, PC3-17066 (2133)
- 120GB Kingston ssd Now V300,
- 1TB WD Blue WD10EZEX SATA III 6GB/s 7200rpm
- LG UH12NS30 Internal Blu-ray ROM DVD Writer SATA
- Asus PCE-N15 PCIe 300Mbps 802.11b/g/n Wireless Adaptor with Low Profile Bracket

for £423 delivered (no OS included though).

Just an idea really, and with Scan any changes/upgrades are fitted and tested as part of their processes before being posted.

Without an OS can be great for those with enough know how to install their own. Windows is often up here for £5-£20, much cheaper than the extra an OEM would charge.

My real question is exactly what someone would use a £600 computer without discrete graphics for? It's too expensive for an office PC, too overkill for a modest gaming PC and too ugly for a high end gaming PC...

If can trade-in, probook with i3-6100u, or i5-6200u with M.2 SSD is around £200.

More powerful CPU, much better quality laptop, good GPU as onboard (do not compare to dedicated), M.2 SSD is fast and keep the SATA for a large size HDD.

The HP laptops for £250 have the i3 5020U in them.

Here is how they compare to the N3700 in this Asus laptop:

http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Pentium-N3700-vs-Intel-Core-i3-5020U

Not the only factor though. The HP's have a 3 MB cache vs the 2 MB in the Asus. But then the Asus has a 2.4 Turbo boost and an extra 500Gb HDD space, the new USB Type-C port and it's a tad lighter compared to the HP. Also the HP didn't get great reviews for it's screen whereas the blurb on the Asus (rightly or wrongly) seems to suggest a decent screen. But you may need to go and see it in Currys/PC World to confirm this.

So you pays your money and makes your choice!


Edited By: Noddydog on Mar 24, 2016 15:52: Extra info
Just reserved one of these at my local Currys. Seems pretty good price for a 15.6" with 4Gb of RAM. Plus 4hrs battery life is great for a laptop this size. Despite concerns folks seem to have about the CPU when I look up the reviews on it they all say it's pretty good and the pay off is its lower wattage... and thus longer battery life. Given that I don't want to play games on this, it's a good trade off for me personally.

With the greatest of respect mate, it seems you are quick to jump all over the posts on here telling people how it should be done. Then, when the option to *actually* provide a little help or advice is raised, you get all "on your own bud" about it.... just an observation.


At no point have I told anyone how anything should be done. I used google to find an upgrade for this CPU and there was only one for the same socket.

actually, your "accurate" comparison is ridiculous because it takes 25 minutes to put a PC together and requires no experience beyond a single youtube video. And, if you mess it up, you aren't risking your life. I would never build my own car. I would happily let a 10 year old have a go.
My point was that old tat is always going to be cheaper, and that a single item found 2nd hand obviously can't be had by everyone. Lets not obscure that with sillyness

more accurately it would be comparing
a car engine that was made today, vs a whole car that was made in 2010.
Would much rather have a 2010 5 series full complete car than a 2016 5-series engine only.

Actually CPUs wont even overheat anymore as they all have thermal sensors, if it gets too hot they slow down, or in extremis they shut off.
This seemed to be a bargain especially for a HTPC.
People here thinking about the extreme of possibility. On the other hand, they could have been used once to setup a system. Or not used at all.

'Used' CPU? Doesn't like a good idea
They either work or they don't so when it arrives if it's working it'll probably be fine for another 5 or 10 years. Overclocked CPU's might be a cause for concern of course but even overclocking may only reduce the lifespan by 50% and a CPU may well last 10 to 20 years although it'll be of little use in 20 years time.
What utter nonsense - stop posting pseudo-science - this is HotUKDeals. I'm giving heat for the deal, find another forum for your technical discussion...

Need one to finish build any sign of these dropping soon?
No deal hear been way cheaper and I have been keeping my eye on them waiting for them to drop again.......makes me think Intel keeping them artificially high to make new chips more attractive.
I don't see any sort of deal here I paid about £169 2 years ago
Moving to this from fx 8350, Benchmarks etc suggest it's a good choice. Next year I'll go I7 but funds a bit tight atm.
Just paid 240 for the 4790K, seems much better value.

Literally tried to buy a GPU today and they cancelled my order and set my account to inactive and I'm waiting to see why, despite using an account I've used before with all the same payment and delivery information. Someone I know had the same thing happen. They asking them for ID and utility bill and then wait 48 hours, by that time deal will probably be gone. What a horrendous situation.
It's not horrendous, it's just not professional, buy the CPU from Amazon they'll look after you. I try and get most stuff from Amazon now, despite the tax stuff which isn't as clear cut as the media make it. If I have an issue I speak on live chat and get it resolved. I stick with what I know until it lets me down then I look elsewhere.

I used the same everything as my last order and somehow they think it's not me! Now asking for my ID. Not going to give it to them, not going to respond to them, not going to shop with them again.

​That's Ebuyer for you. Tried ordering this chip from them a few months ago (it was the best price at the time). Bought the mobo and ram based on this decision (elsewhere). After about 5 days passed the expected delivery date for the chip I rang them up to ask where my order was, they gave me a load of bull about stock issues and they won't be able to send it to me so they'd have to cancel my order. Had I not contacted them I wouldn't have known about this 'issue', they just took my money and sat on it with no intention of fulfilling my order or letting me know... it was clear they didn't want to honour the price I ordered it at. Really unprofessional business, will never use them again.

Same type of thing happened with me over a GTX 660 graphics card, never used them after that. They used to be a dire company when the started out with hopelessly poor packaging on their deliveries, this was some 15+ years ago, then they seemed to sort things out and I worked for a company that put in £10-20K orders a month with them, buy 300 motherboards at a time. So I started to use them again, then they messed me about on that order and I gave up on them.

I guess there's plenty of people that get on OK with them and that's just one experience I had with them.

bare in mind this is the OEM version with a 1 year warranty, the Retail version has 3 years
I wonder if anyone has actually had a CPU burn out on them in less than 20 years. Dead on arrival yes, dead due to overvoltage yes, but dead through normal under-warranty use?
Yes, but these skylake chips are fragile and are known to crack under the weight of air coolers. No harm in a longer warranty.
They crack? WTF?
Intel just had to move to 14nm, it's way too thin and therefore fragile! Give me back my 28nm CPUs or better yet make that 0.32 microm!
****Whacks head**** oO
The 14nm is the feature size of the process, nothing to do with the thickness of the silicon!
If these have problems with cracking due to overzealous tightening of heatsinks than the package is to blame, indicating that intel may have cheaped out on the package in this series and will probably beef up the next revision (if its a major issue) :( (The Si substrate material may or may not be thicker but the package should be designed to protect it)
It had a direct effect on silicon thickness :)http://images.anandtech.com/doci/9505/S-Thinkness_575px.jpeg
Is this a Joke>? :D - the thing your looking at is the PCB of the package - the silicon is soldered onto it under the metal heatspreader.

I'll rephrase. The die shrink has impacted PCB thickness as shown in the image.

If you have the motherboard and ram already, this is a good option. If you don't, buy the 6700k.

I didn't complain about them, I find them very amusing, up to a point. And then I can stand it no longer LOL :p

Sure you could go with cheaper RAM for both, I picked this because this is prob something similar to what people will go for.
Going for the cheapest RAM - ddr 3 - 15 - ebay - ddr4 - 19 - pcpartpicker - reducing savings to 54. Which is more in line with what you said. Still enough to sway a better GPU. Still a great CPU and good option.
Still gets heat from me.
I have no clue why you are insisting on listing the ram at 12 quid higher for DDR4 after I've already linked it nor why you'd link to a higher costing motherboard after I linked a cheaper one.
I mean, you are artificially inflating the option you don't want to 'win' to make a point.
HyperX fury Black for 59.75 on PC part picker. Again, it drops your difference, even in your cherry picked scenario, to less than 55.
I feel I'm talking to a wall here, so I'll repeat myself one more time and excuse myself from this conversation.
If you have DDR3 and a socket 1150 motherboard and are looking for a CPU upgrade... This is a good option. Make sure you are upgrading from an i3 or lower though, as there isn't that big of gain in this situation.
If you don't have DDR3 or a socket 1150. Buy the latest tech, either a 6600k or a 6700k, DDR4, and a socket 1151.
If you are in the market for a GPU and you are debating where to allocate your money, don't buy the 4790k or the 6700k.
Either go with the i5 6500 for 171 or an i5 2500k for 85~.
Your GPU will always be the most important aspect of gaming in the current DX11 generation of games.

Im just posting the cheapest options that i found online. Even if you did find cheaper options I'm not inflating anything these are just what i found.
I do agree if you've got the dosh buy the 6700k like I've already said, i do still think this is a good chip mainly if you've already got a 1151 mother board and RAM to go along with it.

Anyways good chat i thoroughly enjoyed it.

"Intel Skylake Processors Can Bend Under Pressure, Damage CPU and LGA Socket"

Key word here is CAN but its rare. Ive used plenty of skylakes with no issues whatsoever. Just check what cooler u use.
And the Noctua D15s is where the problems end :-)

I have an i5 6600k on an Asus pro gaming mobo
I'm using a big a** Evo 212 cooler
There's no bending to my knowledge, I get temps of about 40c under load
I wouldn't know if there's any bending unless I were to change the cpu cooler out .. But as long as it's working I can't complain:)
Hyper 212 is small. Noctua D15 is where problems start.

If your building a budget pc, this is just a bad idea. You're stuck with no further upgrade options at all. At least if you get the Intel Pentium, you have the option to go i7 and everything in between. It's a poor value option.
And as said, overkill for a htpc. I can't think of any decent uses for this chip

Interesting to see someone use the same word twice and spell it incorrectly and then correctly in the very next sentence!

Anyways i disagree, personally everytime i purchase a new mobo i keep upgrading options in mind, but when it comes to actually upgrading i always end up buying a new mobo and chip etc anyway, usually because i need different ram or some other new feature. So leaving yourself without an upgrade path is fine for most people who don't change their PC every week.

Unless you upgrade every few months, this chip is totally fine for a single build PC for viewing the web, emails etc, and dare i say it some less intensive gaming.

horses for courses.

So someone says great for HTPC others say overkill and not low wattage
so what is it guys?
A8 7600 is 65w tdp throw in a a88x with 8 sata for my 8 X3TB WD Reds in a Node 804 running plex
For a HTPC you want something that sips power. Low power means much less heat to dissipate. Heat is your worst enemy in a htpc. Under a TV means less airflow, so you'll need active fans on the CPU and case to shove heat out. Fans means noise unless you spend £££ on a really good passive cooler, in which case you might as well have bought an equally well performing intel part that uses half the power and kicks out half the heat. I used a low profile HTPC so airflow was even more critical, I had a noctua l12 with my pentium g3258 (and now my i5 4440) and even when gaming it was barely audible.

You also don't need a brute of a cpu (not that this is), if its just video playback, perhaps encoding over plex, a cheap i3, or even a pentium will do you fine. Heck even the new atom lineup will work. If you're playing back h.265 4k files then you will want something with an igpu that supports it (the g3258 doesn't, the maxwell based 750ti I have does have partial support)

So yeah, this chip is about the worst you could choose imo just for a HTPC. Only those 125w piledriver chips are worse really.
forgot to say wanting to build my own as selling the HP N54L Server so is the AMD 5350 better in performance than what the HP uses
REAL_DEAL
This is going to be on 24/7 so whats more suitable?

I'd go for a 5350 for a 24/7 htpc/nas. Like 25w or something. Performance isn't fantastic but fine for 1080p video and web browsing. Performance is comparable to a £300 laptop
This is going to be on 24/7 so whats more suitable?

It's because Intel have not brought an updated version yet. When the release a new version, prices should fall.

no such thing as an i7 5820K extreme, it would be 5820X if i did exist, but it does not so misleading title.
https://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html

powerbrick is correct, the i7-5820K part is not branded Extreme by Intel, that's reserved for -X suffixed CPUs, and usually reserved for the most powerful CPU in a particular generation, in this case that would be the i7-5960X Extreme Edition. There a useful comparison article here.

Intel i7 - 5820k (AIR-COOLED)
- Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (with extra/optional 120mm fan installed)
- Cooler Master HAF 932 (High-Air-Flow case)
ASUS X99 Deluxe
32GB DDR4
GTX 980
Rosewill Photon 1200W PSU

My system has been on and under heavy use for a 8 days at 4.5 Ghz (32% increase from stock) - and it is AIR cooled.
Idle temps are 33-37 Celsius and under load max temps 69-74 Celsius

I do a lot of work with VMs (virtual machines), code-compiling and am a big gamer. This thing is a monster. No hiccups.

This is how I accomplished this (bear with me Ill get to my actual advice here soon :p )

The X99 mobo comes with some nice Over-clocking software (AI suite as mentioned in previous posts) that will push a full load on the CPU -all the while monitoring temperatures- and gradually step up the base clock RATIO in small increments until hits a max temp, and then it dials it back a notch to a stable overclock
I mention this for two reasons 1 (its awesome) and two; the method that AI 3 uses with auto tune is basically the same way you want to approach a manual overclock
--SMALL increase changes, test, increase, repeat, hit ceiling, dial back a bit, burn in stable--

I obviously did some manually tuning/over-clocking because, well, it's fun :)
Anyways I found with my testing the BEST (fast AND stable) OCs were achieved by following this method;
1. Pick a maximum Voltages that you feel comfortable pushing to the chip and set it (mine was 1.22V)
2. Leave the BCLK (BUS Speed) at the default 100 Mhz
3. In small increments increase the Ratio/Multiplier (number multiplied by the BCLK to compute CPU clock speed, default is 33) 33 x 100 = 3300 = 3.30 Ghz -(stock speed)
--I made increases of 2 to the Ratio, ran Prime95 for 10 minutes, increase, repeat, ceiling, dial back (47 crashed and 46 was unstable), run prime95 for 6 hours with temp logs running, insure stability-
4. Done

With LIQUID cooling I could see getting close to 5Ghz on this chip. Bear in mind always that every single ship does not behave the same way, -so please anyone don't read this and just go set your multiplier to 45 and hit go - Always monitor temps/fan speeds as you are tuning, whenever possible- Make small steps, and only change one(maybe 2) things at a time!

This Toshiba at £600, nothing is up to the price except the RAM.

CPU, GPU, screen, HDD all should be better to be worth £600.

This laptop is also a consumer laptop, the build quality is not worth any extra too, not like a business laptop or Ultrabook.

i7 cpu is one of the low performance ones designed to extend battery life, better to get a proper i7 quad core or decent i5.

No SSD, should now be standard on all £400+ laptops.

Yeah, i'm guessing that Intel are allowing this unofficial overclocking to give them a way to undo the CPU locking they've been doing IF the AMD CPUs due in 2016 are competitive. If they turn out to be weak then Intel can probably shut the door on non-K overclocking quite easily. Until Intel say for certain that they won't break the feature I'd be very hesitant if I were looking to buy.
I wouldn't buy from Overclockers - they used to be difficult with returns so they lost my custom. I'd rather buy from Amazon.

It shouldn't. I have a 9370 clocked at 5.219 with an H100i cooling it. It's what you need in your life.
NIce. What power supply do you have? What would you recommend for the FX9590?
Problem is your motherboard does not support the FX 9590 according to Asus.
My board didn't officially support it either but if it can take an overclocked 8350 why not a 9590?

I think the compatability may be down to the power rating of your motherboard. The cheapest boards are rated only for the lowest power level cpus, 90 watts i think. The better boards are rated for 125/150 watts range. Then you get the really sweet boards that are rated for the likes of the 220 watt beasts. Obviously, if you push a cpu on a lower tier board, you may run into reliability issues, or worse, could damage the board.

if you're not already invested in the AM3+ platform then you'd be better off even overclocked with the i5 even more so as the Intel chip uses half as much electricity over the year

Even if stuck with AM3+ you're better off OCing an 8370 and burning less power. TBH it makes so little difference to actual performance it's barely worth the OC anyway.

great price got mine for £220 6months ago off a friend. only downside is they run really hot


You might want to check your voltage in the BIOS. Some motherboards auto adjust the voltage based in the clock speed. When I installed my 4790k the board wanted to run it at some ridiculous voltage, so I had to manually set it down to 1.2V.

These shouldn't run that hot to be honest.
Now its expired :(

You don't necessarily need a GPU to complete the build as the i5 and board have built in gpu capability but it all depends on the games you want to play. I'm planning to build as is and then the lad's going to buy the GPU with Christmas money etc at a later date.
If you're playing decent games you will need a graphics card to add to this.
donny2004
do I need graphic card to add or its build in that could play medium games. thanks
I thinkthese are benchmarks for the IGPU. You'd be alright for some things with the resolution and detail turned down from the looks of it. If he needs a computer now then by all means, otherwise there's always the possibility prices "might" drop.

That said it'll be good for a fair few years. I have an old sandy bridge i5 and this thing (Early 2011 model) and my GPU still bottlenecks if anything. Until games start leveraging those 6+ core cpu's any second gen quadcore i5 is still more than adequate for gaming.

Can't say much about this deal apart from that it's one of the biggest CPU deals I've ever seen. A 6 core i7 for £230? Specifications Socket - 2011-V3 140W Processor Core - Core i7-5820K Base

Just picked up one for £215 plus hopefully £32 cash-back to make it £183. That's 4 core i5 money for a 6 core i7. :p
Where did you pick that up from as that is stonking deal?!

Just like the couple of people who posted before me, I put the Ebuyer deal into Bespoke Offers "beat my price" page. Quidco has 15% cashback on top. Absolute steal. :P

Glad u guys got yours. enjoy the upgrade. I'll keep trying lol though the offer i got wasn't as good anyway. They gotta send one at some point. Yeah maybe they running out a stock who knows. Let me know what mono u go for. Lime the look of the z 97 krait edition. but its sli only as far as can tell.

Hmmm Bizarre that Bespoke offer a price and then can't honour it. Maybe they got lots of requests at the £130 price and the supplier had no stock. I suspect they offered a price and the supplier just went no way at that price.
Or does this happen a lot??

I've had it happen to me several times with Flubit, never with Bespoke but only used them a few times.

Mine also arrived today :)
Ordered from bespoke for £130, cashback tracked at £13.01 via quidco, still showing as "awaiting despatch" yet turned up today...and fireworks merchant look like they got it from ebuyer!

This Bespoke thing seems a weird business model but I am not complaining :)

if you've got an AM3 motherboard an a lesser CPU at the moment then this could be a good deal - I upgraded to one of these last year replacing an 720X3 which in turn replaced an X2 Athlon in or 2nd PC. however if starting a new build from scratch then Intel is probably way to go at the moment - especially as AM3 is probably on its way out.

One of these, or it's lower clock speed brother, 8320, will run any single GPU setup no problem. I've got an 8320 at 4.0 GHz with an undervolt at 1.22 V. Another 8320 at 3.9 GHz undervolted to 1.18 V. That speed is about the sweet spot for speed/voltage, although the chip will happily run at 4.3 on stock voltage of circa 1.33 V, it starts to get a bit thirsty if you ask for more speed. It's tragic that AMD didn't shrink these down to keep them at least competitve with Intel.
:D I have an 8320 too, It's been running happily at 4.4GHz since I got it, I've got it to 4.7GHz with over volting, but the 4.4 at stock voltage is fine. It'll easily handle any game, I can run multiple VM's on it (I got 32GB RAM too). Fantastic CPU's, and very affordable.
What did you mean by keeping competitive with Intel? In what way?
AMD need higher IPC and lower power consumption to compete. At this price though, it's not bad at all.
I won't be losing any sleep over the TDP difference in this (125W) and the nearest intel (95W). Gotta remember that this is the maximum amount of thermal energy the heat sink needs to be able to disperse, I know its easy to see it as a 'power consumption' figure but its really not.
The IPC part I assume is a general comment on AMD vs Intel. I agree, I think AMD's market was more the consoles and APU's. Hopefully Zen will set them back on track for big powerful CPU's!
The TDP doesn't seem to explain everything.https://images.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.overclock.net%2Fcontent%2Ftype%2F61%2Fid%2F1176759%2Fwidth%2F500%2Fheight%2F1000%2Fflags%2FLL&f=1
Exactly! You'd be forgiven for saying TDP doesn't explain ANYTHING
The 8350 has a TDP of 125W, but can consume 195W
The 3770K has a TDP of 77W, but can consume 119W
The 3770K is a ~£250 CPU though!


Erh ... Nah that is system power consumption not CPU.

This is non k i5 money. If your gaming I would not choose the i5. Why not buy the 8320e less then £100.

Because the 8320e has worse IPC than the 8350, let alone the i5. IPC is very important when gaming.

Wouldn't touch Seagate drives based on their failure rates.
They sold $14 billion worth of drives last year - seems not everyone shares your view....
Go look at the failure rates.


​Maybe do some proper reading. The data isn't fair and isn't standardised also it's specific models that have the issues. Third these are consumer drives used in enterprise environment which is plain ridiculous

You can save a fair bit of money with two measures here - first of all, you can remove the DVD drive if, like many of us, you are fully digital.

Secondly, you are taking a hit in quality, but for £40 you can get a reasonable mATX case, 400W PSU (with eight-pin GPU PCIe power), keyboard and mouse: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-GZ-MA02-Kit-M-ATX-Case/dp/B00HLERWL8/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1437817523&sr=8-4&keywords=gigabyte+4-in-1

400W is more than enough for this build, and I've built many budget gaming PCs very simiar to your config with this - none have failed yet.

These changes take your £396 build down to £350, the same price as a 1TB PS4 :) Plus you get a keyboard and mouse.

EDIT: Actually, this version of the all-in-one has a 450W PSU for the same price - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-GZ-MA03-Kit-M-ATX-Case/dp/B00HLERWNQ/ref=pd_sim_147_3?ie=UTF8&refRID=193EQC7JDB4AC1YY2F0C

PCPartPicker is allowed as ONLY AriaPC is banned from HUKD. And even that was several years ago: Aria Banned
And this makes me so confuse, cos aria charge £8+ for a delivery, so on pcpartpicker it looks cheap but at the and it is not.

Good Price. You also get all parts in one go.
Built a new system using deals on here and using flubit, bespoke to beat Amazon prices. However you would not know when they arrive.
I was going for budget gaming PC but got carried away. Just waiting for graphics card deal.

Antec 650w true power 80 £52, Zalman 9 plus case £33
212 Evo fan cooler £25, G.skill 8GB 2400mhz Ram £43
Gigabyte z97p d3 motherboard £52, i5 4690k £155
250gb 850 Evo 2.5 ssd £69, Western blue 1TB £38
Total £470 awaiting cash back on a few items.
Good price.
so add another £300 for the gpu and ram and u have a really good gaming machine :)
I will get 250gb SSD, but the package includes the 2TB Seagate Barracuda. As far as the build goes I am not sure. I have been looking for a good price on the Intel Core i7 4790K and motherboard, which is why this interested me. I also do not require it for gaming just processing and video editing high definition home movies, also future proofing as I do not want to replace for another 5ys.
get a 250gb ssd not the hdd
also what are your plans for the build
