I finally bought a new windows desktop computer after my Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 Desktop spoiled two years ago.
The age gap between them is 12 years. Between 2008 and 2020, a lot of things have changed for the better.
If you have been following my blog, you will notice over the past two weeks, I have been blogging about PC parts that I bought from Amazon.
- addlink S70 2TB NVMe M.2 SSD
- SanDisk Ultra 3D 2TB SSD
- G.Skill Trident Z Neo Series 32GB RAM
- Arctic P12 PWM PST Fan
- DEMCiflex Dust Filter ST30 Double 120mm
To complete my setup, I bought the remaining parts (Processor, Motherboard, Graphics Card, Power Supply, and Casing) from Dynacore as recommended by Benjamin.
Here is what I got from Dynacore:
- AMD Ryzen 7 3700X with Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Impact – S$1,087
- Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 2080 Super Twin Fan – S$1,075
- Seasonic Focus SGX 650W SFX Gold Modular PSU – S$198
- Lian-Li TU150 ITX Black Casing – S$168
If you are thinking of getting parts from Dynacore as well, you can look for Abdul. As a rule of thumb, best to email them first at firstname.lastname@example.org to check for the stocks.
Abdul took the initiative to reserve all the parts for me when I emailed. If not, the motherboard that I wanted, Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Impact, will be out of stock.
Dynacore charges S$20 for installation. They are pretty chilled about you bringing others (not bought from Dynacore) PC parts to be assembled.
Here are the full specifications of my computer and their prices.

Hopefully, this can last me another 10 years.
