And I'll be telling him to get $100 spare, and we'll throw a FireCuda SSHD in there ASAP.
Fun times ahead!
I would have thought an SSHD would be a waste for a data drive. Does the SSD component still get used when the OS is not installed to the SSHD?
Just did two Ryzen builds for the the digital display thingy I am setting up
Just about ready to go in to use.
Common components for two PCs are
AMD Ryzen 5 1400 with Wraith Cooler.
Corsair 8GB (2x4GB) DDR4 2133MHz Vengeance LPX
Kingston SUV400 480GB SSD
Corsair 650W CX 80+ PSU
Windows 10 Ent (from the customers VLKs)
For the desktop staff PC
Gigabyte nVidia Geforce GT 710 1GB GPU
Coolermaster Silencio 352. mATX
For the display controller
Gigabyte nVidia GeForce GTX 1050 G1 Gaming 2GB x2 (each card can handle 3 x HDMI out simultaneously)
Coolermaster N400 ATX Case.
Had a couple of issues with the build.
1) Mobos Bios had to be updated before they would boot with the AMD Ryzen 5 1400 so had to get in a Ryzen 7 1700 in just to update the BIOS (Grrr).
2) 1 stick of the the Corsair Ram was totally stuffed so had to get another pair in ( yet to warranty return the dud pair).
Once past those issue both boxes run very well and the staff are real happy with the speed boost from the old PC ( AMD AM2 X2, 4Gb ram, onboard GFX, 160Gb spinner drive).
