Even if I build a new PC now, I will have no space to keep it. My room is damn crowded at the moment. Just imagine the space in a 3-room flat. The rooms are not that big when you put a queen-size bed and a wardrobe in one of them.

My wife is already damn fed up with the house key collection no-news delay. She don't like to live with my parents. Haiz...
Then might as well move first then buy since it's not in a hurry, we can see how AMD Ryzen 5 excite or disappoint us also. Haha

All the best with the moving

Yeah. Thanks.

The house renovation is more worrisome in my opinion.

New PC? Easy as 1, 2, 3 nowadays.

Hahaha... I think it will be better once we move out.

You haven't encounter the PC shut down suddenly for no reason while you were concentrated in playing StarCraft 2 multiplayer with a headset on.

Guess what happened?

Somehow it involved my wife as well. Hahaha...

But I did not laugh that time. I was shocked, angry and annoyed.

I just found out that I can collect my house keys within July to September 2017.

So I wonder is there any new computer stuff to add/amend into the list?

I just remember that I have a mint-in-box power supply that has been kept in storage for many years.

Can it be used?



I think it is this one in the picture. Do we really need 700W nowadays?

I RMA this power supply back then but I got the Seasonic instead while waiting for the new/replacement power supply to arrive. Thus, I did not even open the box and just stored it in one corner for many years.

This is another PC configuration based on the pricelist from Tradepac. A few of the items are not priced so I based them on PC Themes' instead.

Processor/Mainboard - Intel i5-7500 3.4GHz & ASRock H110M-HDV ($377)

Ram - Kingston 2133MHz CL15 8GB x 2 ($168)

Graphics - ZOTAC GTX 1050 Ti 4GB DDR5 ($182)

SSD - Western Digital Blue 240GB 2.5" SSD ($137)

HDD - Toshiba 1TB 7200RPM SATA ($59)

PSU - OCZ ModXtream-Pro 700W ($0) ~ Still mint-in-box after RMA many years back

Casing - Fractal Design Define C ($149) ~ PC Themes' price

Media - Samsung 24x DVD-RW SATA ($21)

Monitor - Samsung S22F350FHNE 21.5" ($0)

OS - Windows 10 Home Edition ($158) ~ PC Themes' price

Total: $1251

The monitor price is also unknown.

So what do I need to 'tweak' on the above configurations?

MSI graphics cards are too expensive. Bo pianz... Have to find ZOTAC instead...
