Mushkin Enhanced ECO3 2.5" 240GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDE3240GB

Pros: Very fast Not too costly Decent size storage Super easy to set up

Cons: It wasn't free! Normally I'd knock off an egg for this but I will let this one slide.

Most Critical Review

Decent case for the money, but there are a lot quirks.

HEC 6K28BB8F Black 0.8mm SECC Steel Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case
HEC 6K28BB8F Black 0.8mm SECC Steel Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: - Unbeatable price. - Looks pretty nice, plain and simple. - Fairly sturdy considering the price. - Doesn't take up too much desk space.

Cons: - While some edges seem to be rounded, others are RAZOR SHARP and will fillet you if you are not careful! - If you are mounting an optical drive and you want to screw it in from both sides to that it doesn't sag, you cannot take both side panels off. You have to remove the entire drive cage first, which, from what I can tell, requires you to remove the front panel of the case. - The HDD LED cable is a 3-pin plug despite having only 2 physical pins. Because it has an extra pin-hole on the connector, it will not fit into JFP1. You have to plug in the HDD LED cable to JFP2, which some motherboards don't have. To fix this, I had to literally pull one of the wires out of the 3-pin plug and move it over so that there was room to plug it in. It's a confusing process, and it's even harder to explain on here. - On the topic of room for cable management; there is none. - Didn't come with enough screws unfortunately!

Overall Review: Over all, it is a decent case for the price listed. If you can put up with possible front panel connector issues, no cable management, harsh metal cuts and frustrating optical drive installations, then I don't see anything wrong with this case. My personal opinion would be to spend just a little bit more on a computer case, because you get what you pay for!

Works well enough for display expansion and very light gaming

MSI GeForce GT 1030 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 (uses x4) Low Profile Video Card GT 1030 2GH LP OC

Pros: Bought this one because it has both HDMI and DisplayPort, as my CPU doesn't have an onboard GPU. Have a multi-monitor setup hooked up to it and it works great. Simple games like Minecraft work well enough, although I wouldn't recommend buying this for gaming. Lack of a fan means it is completely silent. Makes a good choice with an SSD and a low power CPU if you want complete silence. No PSU power cables required. It is powered by the motherboard's PCI-E slot, making cable management much cleaner.

Cons: Runs hotter than ideal due to the lack of a fan. During full load, saw temperatures top at ~75C. This is perfectly within spec, but it's still a little hot for such a low powered card.

Overall Review: Decent card for silence and input expansion, but don't expect to play modern AAA games on anything but low settings.

Works well, not quite as described

MSI Gaming Intel B250 LGA 1151 micro-ATX Motherboard with Gaming Mouse

Pros: Good quality board with red LED lights USB-C compatibility is a nice touch Nice diversity of ports Powers on and works as promised

Cons: Gaming mouse was nowhere to be found Some of the pins on an unrecognized connector on the motherboard were almost broken off (not on the CPU socket)

Overall Review: It's a good motherboard that works as described as far as I can tell. Seems to be of decent quality. If you are buying this refurbished, be aware that you might not get the gaming mouse that is supposed to come with it.

Nice unit.

Seasonic FOCUS GX-750, 750W 80+ Gold, Full-Modular, Fan Control in Fanless, Silent, and Cooling Mode, 10 Year Warranty, Perfect Power Supply for Gaming and Various Application, SSR-750FX.

Pros: Fully modular is nice when working in tight spaces. Hefty weight and construction inspires confidence that it is well-made. Runs pretty quiet.

Cons: A bit pricey but so far it seems to be worth it.

Overall Review: Seems like a great product. Currently powering a 3700X, 16GB RAM, and a RTX 2080 without any issues.

Good quality budget case with a few quirks

SAMA Sama-3D Black Steel / Tempered Glass ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
SAMA Sama-3D Black Steel / Tempered Glass ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Tempered glass is decently thick and is held on by simple thumbscrews with rubber pads on them to prevent scratching. Three fans installed in the front all work. Good hole cutouts for cable management, for the most part. Lots of features for the small price tag. Magnetic dust filters.

Cons: The top of the plastic front panel has a sharp lip on it that makes the case feel cheaper than it should. Hard drive cage is directly in front of the power supply. Can be difficult to work around all of the cables coming out of the PSU if you are installing a HDD. PCI covers must be bent/broken off, they are not reusable. Only comes with one reusable PCI cover. ATX motherboards are a tight fit. They fit, but barely.

Overall Review: For the price, this is a pretty good case. I wouldn't personally buy this case again for a standard ATX motherboard as it is a bit of a tight fit, but for m-ATX and mini-ITX I picture this case being a great fit. Don't get me wrong, ATX will certainly fit in this case, but I'd prefer to have a bit more room. The case stands out while not looking too tacky. I will consider buying this case again for future builds.
