For his new PC we wanted maximum (game) performance for a minimal amount of money (about $200). To reach this goal we had to use the LC Power case, the 1 TB HD and the 4Gb DDR3 RAM. My son wanted a AMD A10 processor because of the on-board graphics capabilities (8 GPU cores). But the LC Power case has a modest 200W power supply so he chose the AMD A10-7800 which has a TDP of only 65W. Additionally he choose a ASRock FM22A88M Extreme4+ microATX board.
|The LC Power 1400mi, a cheap computer case with 200W power supply built-in. It even looks nice.|
|Inside of the LC Power. The microATX fits but there is hardly any room for cable management.|
|My son behind his PC running Steam on Ubuntu. He's quiet happy with the speed of the system right now.|
