now my problem is I forgot that transferring of SSD to different MOBO means the windows software cannot be used liao. So i should leave the SSD in the old build (which is passed down to my son) so that version of Win 10 inside can still be used.

Then buy a new SSD & OEM Win 7 or 10 for the new build.

Any good & reliable 500GB SSD to recommend?
well i say depends on how u want to go lol. u can go either way, just that it will be a bit costly for a new SSD with OEM win7 and upgrade to 10.

u can consider getting transcend or zotac for their 480GB ssd. as they are quite cheap.

I think I can wait until Black Friday sales. feeling the pain of spending over $2k on new build already.

I am thinking of customising 2 x desktops for office usage. Word, excel and Photoshop usage.

I would like at least GTX750Ti level of GPU performance.. with i5 + 8GB RAM. Need monitor 22" FHD matt display too. Any recommendations? Budget as low as possible.. $900 enough? Thanks guys!

Hi all, I'm looking for an average PC that costs around 1.1k+- that can support most games, particularly those newer released games.

What are the viable specs for such a PC?

And also I asked a 1.2k quote, the specs that he gave me was CPU i5-6500, MB Gigabyte GA-H110M-DS2 DDR3, G-skill 8GB, PSU FSP550W 80+ HEXA plus, GFX Gigabyte GTX950 2GB Windforce, SSD 250GB Samsung EVO, HDD Western.D 1TB, Coolermaster 343 Casing. Is this a good deal?

ok base on what he quote total cost : 1041. (price got from PCTheme)

but overall i still think its not that good, esp the mobo is a ddr3 verison and gpu wise still best that u get a RX 480/ GTX 970 (comes with a free overwatch game)

if u dun mind his build den go for. if not, den i reply to u what to get.
