    About to cry...

    Well you have to admit, breaking a ram holder IS pretty scary.

    About to cry...

    I just left the slightly broken RAM holder alone, and retrieved the screw. Not much to really tell.

    About to cry...

    I got it working guys!!! That's not what happened. You suggested like a wild man with a veangance that I get a Dell. I didn't listen and got a NUC. Had problems with the NUC that weren't performance related and sent it back. Now I got this and it's working properly. I ended up not getting an...

    About to cry...

    So I listened to you guys and didn't buy the pre-built computer from that guy. Instead I bought a Gigabyte Brix AMD with a M275x, barebones, and 4GB RAM and a mSata SSD. I ended up breaking it by accident. I followed the instructions exactly when installing the RAM, and ended up breaking one of...

    How much is this worth? Just wondering.

    I'm just going to do what I feel is right and pay him and enjoy the PC. You can lock this thread if you want to, so that people don't waste any more time on a mind that has been made up. I still appreciate the kindness and feedback.

    How much is this worth? Just wondering.

    Seems like an incredible deal, but I still want small form factor. Also, I might get railed on for saying this, but I plan on using Linux.

    I'm sorry I've been so stubborn, bro.

    No warranty is offered, that I know of.

    How much is this worth? Just wondering.

    I'll just pay him the $675. He also has to pay Amazon fees which I believe are 6% and $5, and to ship this computer to me.

    How much is this worth? Just wondering.

    I didn't give him my money yet. But he might get angry if I don't.

    How much is this worth? Just wondering.

    The overpriced RAM was an accident/miscommunication. I thought I would be going with an APU at first, and he ended up buying the RAM ahead of time. I wanted a SSD. Anyway, the price we agreed on.... Was $675. OneMoar - I cannot built my own due to having unsteady hands due to a medical...

    How much is this worth? Just wondering.

    I will be buying this computer and me and the seller already agreed on a price. I was just wondering what you thought it was worth in US $. And no, I'm not selling it, I will be using it. Mini-ITX form factor Athlon X4 860K Wifi 8GB 2133MHz 240GB Samsung Evo SSD Radeon 260 graphics card 430...

    NVIDIA equivalent

    I was wondering, what is the Geforce equivalent of a Radeon (R-series) 260 card?

    Fixing Intel's poor performing HD 5000 graphics when you have a NUC

    I agree. It's hard though... since I'm a new member, it's hard to tell the gurus and people in the know on here, from the people who just google things themselves. I've listened to some of the wrong people elsewhere before, and got burned worse than if I listened to nobody. All I know is, it...

    Fixing Intel's poor performing HD 5000 graphics when you have a NUC

    Well, I'm sorry. I made a mistake and I will just have to live with it. Assuming I'm not happy with a NUC when I was happy with a Core i7-4500u laptop with a Geforce 750m.

    Fixing Intel's poor performing HD 5000 graphics when you have a NUC

    Thing is though, that Dell just seemed to have a 220watt power supply.

    Fixing Intel's poor performing HD 5000 graphics when you have a NUC

    I know and I might be making a huge mistake. But I went with my gut feeling and got a NUC after seeing an Anandtech benchmark showing gaming performance fairing well. I really think both will end up having about the same performance, but the NUC is smaller and I'll have to do this BIOS...

    Fixing Intel's poor performing HD 5000 graphics when you have a NUC

    I'm going to do it. I don't see a problem with it myself. I've gotten in trouble overclocking before, but this seems slightly safer. So long as you don't push past what they did. It could be the difference of a smoother game at 1600x900, which I'll be using mine at. But to each their own. I'm...

    Fixing Intel's poor performing HD 5000 graphics when you have a NUC

    Read: http://www.legitreviews.com/how-to-get-more-graphics-performance-from-the-intel-nuc_136218 I take no responsibility if you damage your machine doing this. Although it seems kind of foolproof. Edit: Sorry for botching up the "when" and "NUC" in the title.

    What I ended up ordering...

    Meh, an A10 Kevari system would have been a teensy bit faster but about the same price. Motherboard - $60 Processor - about $150 for A10 Case - $40 Power supply - $40 I'd rather pay the $60, or less since I was figuring low, and not have to build from scratch and I would probably have had to...

    i5-4460 vs. i5-4250u

    Okay. But for about the same price, I can get a small Dell box with an i5-4460, or an Intel NUC which is a bit smaller with an i5-4250u. Which is why I asked.
