AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 2400GE CPU (OEM Packaging) $99 (Was $149) + Shipping ($0 with Primate) @ Mighty Ape
Seems like a good deal for a media playing / emulation / esports gaming PC with the relatively strong included integrated graphics. 4…

I broadly agree windows defender should be sufficient for most people. Of the paid antivirus I think Malwarebytes is one of the better…

A nice little build. As others mentioned, just make sure you have a cheap graphics card to get a display out.
29/06/2023 - 21:02
I think a stock i5 would also be fine, but unlocked i5s and anything higher might be pushing it. They would probably still work but be…

12th gen still supports ddr4, just check the motherboard - the one linked in the description uses ddr4

Intel Core i3 12100F CPU $99.00 (Was $215.00) + Shipping ($0 with Primate) @ Mighty Ape
Upcoming sale with early access through Primate, the regular price is lower elsewhere but this still appears to be a good deal. 12th gen is…

Not expired for another 9 hours! Don't let the tag put you off.
21/06/2023 - 15:54
Need for speed and unravel are included so I'd say it's still well worth it.

MX500 also has a dram cache which increases performance and longevity significantly.

Anyone else having issues claiming it? Clicking claim just boots me to the homepage.

Haven't checked them yet, will let you know, did you uninstall the old drivers?
20/12/2022 - 14:02
If you want to use the promo code I think it's only active 6-9pm, you could always cancel and order then if you'd like.
15/12/2022 - 14:59
From the link James posted it looks like it'd be a downgrade. If you want an upgrade to tide you over have a look on trade me for a rx570…

Starts at 6pm tonight as per title

AMD Radeon RX550 Graphics Card (2GB, OEM Pack, Low Profile, DVI / HDMI) $59 @ PB Tech
Only active 6-9PM. A good option for a media PC, basic graphics adapter with warranty, or upgrade to an old slimline PC for esports titles.…

Nice find, wish I'd held off, paid only a bit less for a gen 3 drive not too long ago.
13/12/2022 - 11:54
This is under $956 nz shipped excluding GST does that make it exempt or is it the post tax price which is assessed?
25/11/2022 - 12:03
Good find. The CPU on this one looks to be a step up over the i5 (6 vs 4 cores) so it depends what you're after.

Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 - Ryzen 5 6600H, RTX 3050, 8GB DDR5, 258GB SSD $1100 Approx. Delivered @ Amazon US
The 8gb of ram is upgradable as is the storage. DDR5 RAM is more expensive than DDR4 so bear that in mind. This works out cheaper than the…

User benchmark has it as 26% better. It might be worth looking for youtube videos comparing the two in the games you play.
24/11/2022 - 20:03
Good point, a Ryzen stealth cooler fits (I'm using one) and is around $10 on trademe.
24/11/2022 - 19:49
Really!? That's really bad because it says it should come with a 500W one. Be careful then.
24/11/2022 - 18:45
That's a good point for a new build, I think Computer Lounge is another good option for that.
24/11/2022 - 18:09
Hi, it should be compatible with that PC given the CPU and power supply. I imagine it'd be a nice upgrade (some websites have it 40%…
24/11/2022 - 17:17
Which PC are you looking at?
24/11/2022 - 17:12
Yeah, the PSU can't be upgraded easily either but for a Ryzen APU like the 3600G or 5600G it's good for light gaming and media.
24/11/2022 - 17:11
Some others on monitors and TVs but I'm not sure how good the products are e.g Juggernaut 24" Full HD Curved 75Hz Gaming Monitor for…

no, the 3060 and 1660ti are the only ones on sale
