The Samsung 870 EVO is not a good gaming hard drive. It could not keep up with any gaming that you might want to do. Luckily I am just wanting to use this in a home PC. I do not need a lot of storage or it to be overly fast. This Solid State Drive is a 250GB and connects with a STATA III cable. This SSD is a TLC so it will not last the longest however for what the price it is worth it.

The read/write Speeds can get up to 560 MB/s for the read speeds and the write speeds are around 530 MB/s. This drive would be able to last about 1.5 Million hours is what the Samsung website states. 

This SSD is worth the price it is being sold at. On it is being sold at $39.99. It is also this same price on the Samsung website.  I would give this SSD a 5 eggs out of 5 like the other 90% of people that have reviewed this SSD.

CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 8GB (2 x 4GB)

CORSAIR Vengeance

I have been working on building a PC. The PC I wanted to build is for my home, to do little tasks on like look things up and maybe watching a video every once in a while. I am not looking for this to be a gamer or anything. Saying this I still wanted a nice stick of RAM.

I purchased the Corsair Vengeance LPX. The one I bought consists of two sticks of 4GB RAM so it is dual channel.  These sticks of RAM are generation DDR4. This fit into my motherboard great it is the speed of 2666MHz. The RAM is non-ECC and the CAS Latency is 16. It also doesn’t take an unfair amount of voltage it only takes 1.20V.

This is such a good choice because it is a fast stick of RAM that may be too much for what I want to use my PC for. However I really think it is worth the money. If you buy it from it would be $52.99. However if you go the the manufactures website it was $59.99.  These are defiantly worth the price they are put at. I believe you would be extremely happy with your purchase of the Corsair Vengeance.

Reviews from Newegg

I would for sure agree with the 87% of the people that loved these sticks of ram from Newegg and gave it a 4 egg rating or higher.

Intel Core i3-6100

The i3 6100 CPU

I have been searching for a CPU to go into my motherboard. I was looking for something that would be good to have at home not to being playing games or having lots of different things going on all at once. My plans for this PC is to maybe watch some videos and to look up information or other low profile stuff.

The CPU i3-6100 is a relativity good CPU. Your motherboard must be equipped with a CPU socket LGA 1151, this socket will only except Intel CPUs. The i3-6100 is not what I would recommend for a gamer PC, it will be unable to move as fast as other CPUs.

This CPU is equipped with 2/4 cores/threads. The clock speed is 3.70GHz and has 3 MB of L3 cache.

A good website I used as a tool to help me find what CPU I wanted was PassMark. This website takes lots of different CPUs and will rank them and also you will be able to compare them. PassMark helped me make this decision, it gave the i3-6100 a rank of 4152. When I talked to other educated people they let me know that a rank of about 5000 for a home computer would make me happy.

I also looked at reviews on other websites to be sure I will be happy with this CPU. On Newegg their were lots of reviews and lots of them telling me that I will be happy with this choice.

Gigabyte H310M S2H

Gigabyte H310M S2H motherboard.

The Gigabyte H310M S2H is a good motherboard. It depends on what you are looking to use it for though. You are not going to want to use this as a gaming PC. It might not be the best choice for a gaming PC. However it would make a great motherboard for your computer at home if that’s not what you are looking for. This is a high quality motherboard made by Gigabyte and they have a 3 year warrantee. This Gigabyte motherboard is an intel motherboard, it will only except intel CPU’s.

This motherboards CPU socket is an LGA 1151. Meaning it will only except some CPU’s not just any.

This motherboard contains 32GB of maximum memory. This motherboards memory slots hold DDR4 and there are 2 slots.  For the storage, there is both M.2 and SATA connectors.

The back panel

It has integrated graphics audio and LAN.  There are 10 USB, 6 on the back panel and  4 are on the internal USB header.

There are also a few expansion slots. Only 1 PCIe x16 and 2 PCIe x1. This is one of the reasons it would not make a good gaming PC.

I would review this motherboard as a 5 star motherboard. On this motherboards reviews are very good. The motherboard was able to fulfill what I needed with no problems at all . I used this motherboard for at home purposes, such as google, shopping, and maybe some work I needed to do at home.
