After 7 years of using my HP 500 desktop, it was time to upgrade. I think this selection of components will keep this new PC up to my needs for a few years.
My HP-500 had a PassMark Rating of 2001. This new PC has a Passmark of 4729.
I did have trouble finding out information on the DIYPC Jax11-W case. I took a risk and order it because it was such a good price. I'm happy I did. It will meet my needs just fine.
The only issue I really had was the Corsair CXM power supply's CPU power cable was a little short. I had limited choices on how to run it through the case. In hindsight, I should have to choose a full-modular power supply. It would have been an easier, cleaning installation.
I didn't purchase the Samsung 860. I already had it. [STAFF REMOVED]
I want to thank Linus Sebastian and his staff that produce Linus Tech Tips. Their videos are great and really help me both select the components and build the PC. Its been at less 10 years since I build a PC and I need the refresher.
