Funny that both both of the have 3 in their names
Stick with the new Corsair CX series for budget builds or the old S12II and stick with the Seasonic Focus Plus and Prime series for high end builds

The 3 refers to them being the third generation / revision of the design... and I find it unlikely they're hearing the PSU fan over all the other fans in the build unless they're running custom water with very low rpm fans...

The 3 does not refer them to be third generation of the same design as the first had nothing to do with the second and third
And EVGA does not make any of the PSU´s they sell its made by a third party OEM in China

Any component can fail prematurely. I don't have nearly enough experience with pre-built systems to know the quality of their HDDs. I do know they make concessions everywhere possible to keep prices competitive. The motherboard and power supply are still the primary reasons I advocate for building a system yourself. That doesn't mean I wouldn't suggest a pre-built system if the price was right. I wouldn't pay retail for a pre-built.

That's true, but most of the drives I see in prebuilts are the cheaper Toshiba drives. I've seen one HGST drive, but it wasn't a good nor bad one. Kind of in the middle.

Also, I do remember seeing a 500GB Seagate Barracuda in one that I got. It lasted a while so I guess I have seen a good drive.

When used in hybrid fan mode there are huge jumps in fan RPM

This spring I replaced the old Lepa semi-mod with a 750W G3 in my home media tower, case has great air flow (Air 540 with 2-140mm and 4 - 120mm Noiseblockers). I've heard the 7950 in that tower crank up while playing games from Steam on my TV... but never any other spikes in fan noise from that tower... possibly might not have hybrid fan mode on either, though...

Shopping for something secondhand is a really good idea. I found a pre-built Ryzen system on Craigslist that retails for $800. They were asking for $600 OBO. If I had the extra money laying around, I would have offered $550. The processor and video card alone retailed for $450 so even $600 is a good deal.

I really envy you folks in Murica. tongue.gif You have all the great deals even with used/second hand PC stuff. redface.gif

We here in the Philippines aren't so lucky when it comes to used/second hand parts. rolleyes.gif Most are actually entry level stuff. :|

Yeah you can catch some killer deals on used gear around here. I know I tend to sell my used parts really cheap. Sold my 980 ti for $220 right before the mining craze hit. 270x for $50 and then a 4690k/z87/16gb (2400cl10) for $250 in recent memory.

Almost everything in my system is used. Biggest savings came on my motherboard. I got it for $93 on Newegg when it retailed for about $200. Every video card I've had was purchased used. About the only things purchased new in my system are the SSDs, CPU cooler and case. PSU and HDD were refurbished.

Yeah we're tempted to go the used route for certain components. However I'm hesitant on buying a used motherboard. I've had a couple of dead boards. Luckily those were from Fry's so I was able to return them.

I'd go for ryzen 3 as you're not chasing max FPS unless you have a 120hz+ monitor. Wow is pretty light gaming. You should be golden with a 1060 and 4core unlocked ryzen 3. Not to mention the $$$ you're going to save on MB+CPU.
