Overall Review: Great for older systems that do not have built-in M.2 slots on the motherboard. Requires some minor assembly.

Great entry-level Navi GPU

XFX Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 Video Card RX-55XT826D6

Pros: - Factory overclocked - Relatively low power - Quiet

Cons: - No further overclocking room, it's pretty much stuck where it is with artifacting with even light adjustments

Overall Review: Linux user, the open-source AMDGPU driver works great starting with kernel 5.7

CPU and GPU combo at a great price

AMD Ryzen 5 2nd Gen with Radeon Graphics - RYZEN 5 3400G Picasso (Zen+) 4-Core 3.7 GHz (4.2 GHz Max Boost) Socket AM4 65W YD3400C5FHBOX Desktop Processor
AMD Ryzen 5 2nd Gen with Radeon Graphics - RYZEN 5 3400G Picasso (Zen+) 4-Core 3.7 GHz (4.2 GHz Max Boost) Socket AM4 65W YD3400C5FHBOX Desktop Processor

Pros: - Fast CPU, 8-threads on the cheap - Able to hold up to 4ghz solid on stock heatsink - Competent integrated graphics, it can do 1080p medium on most modern titles with at least 30 fps, though 60 is obtainable with only minor tweaks

Cons: - Not a stellar overclocker but considering this is a 2400G refresh, that's not a surprise - Uses a lot of voltage, making over 4ghz clocks only realistic for those with AIOs or high-end air coolers.

Overall Review: Stellar value overall, would definitely buy again!
