Is the Samsung Evo Plus worth it, I am wondering if the Western Digital SN750 would be okay for a lot less. It's only $115 right now. https://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX75358

if he was capable he wouldn't have asked me for my input. I haven't built anything since 2013 so, I'm not current. he hasn't put anything together since 2011, he's not stayed current.chatbox wrote: ↑ "Friend's son"...and you're looking into this, and not your friend? You're dating your friend?
Since he already knows what he wants for the graphics card, he should be equally capable of deciding the rest on his own. (Unless he was making the graphics card decision with no thought process / justification)

6 core /6 Threads is not a good cpu for gaming for the upcoming years.

Agreed with this post. If you want INTEL that bad, i7-9700K ... or wait until the 10xxx series drop, and Nvidia is going to annouce the 3xxx lineup of cards (Ampre) that will offer more power in 10 days. Personally that's worth the wait.elgros4 wrote: ↑ 6 core /6 Threads is not a good cpu for gaming for the upcoming years.

Some are just lazy when it comes to research...they just want want want. i.e. There's more reason than one why input is requested.crashxxx wrote: ↑ if he was capable he wouldn't have asked me for my input.

It hasn't been a scam for me. it was given to me free of charge and it is a free lifetime usage. I have been using it for last 13weeks non-stop. I guess, YMMV.
