QNAP TS-453D comes with only 4GB of RAM, and if you are going to do RAM intensive tasks like using Containers or Virtual Machines, you will definitely need to upgrade the RAM.
I bought the
Crucial 8GB DDR4 2666 MT/s (PC4-21300) SODIMM 260-Pin Memory (CT8G4SFRA266) from Amazon.sg during Black Friday as they are having a sale. I got it for S$31.08 with free shipping to Singapore as my total order is over S$60 and I am an Amazon.sg Prime member. Crucial 8GB DDR4 2666 (PC4-21300) SODIMM 260-Pin RAM – Packaging Front

Lian Li TU150 doesn’t come with any dust filter at the bottom. As the bottom fan is responsible for the intake of air, it will be dusty.
Benjamin recommended me to get the
DEMCiflex Dust Filter ST30 Double 120mm from Amazon. DEMCiflex Dust Filter ST30 Double 120mm – Packaging Front

For casing, I am looking at
Lian Li TU150 in black. It is a mini-ITX chassis that supports four 120mm fans — two at the bottom, one in front, and one at the back.
Noctua has the best casing fans and hence it is expensive. It cost about US$29.90 (S$42) each. Arctic P12 PWM PST Fan – Box Front

Benjamin recommended me to go with AMD instead of Intel. So I will be getting the AMD Ryzen R-3700X.

Melvin for the heads up. I managed to get quite a good deal for the Asus ROG Strix RX VEGA56 OC Edition 8GB (ROG-STRIX-RXVEGA56-O8G-GAMING) on Lazada.
I got it for
S$499 which is a massive discount from the usual price of S$1,179. At first, I was wondering whether it is a fake since the discount seems absurd. Asus ROG Strix RX VEGA56 OC Edition 8GB – Box Front

After much hesitation, finally got a new graphics card to replace mine old Leadtek PX9800GX2 1GB DDR3 which gives me BSOD EVERY SINGLE TIME I run any 3D games. This problem occurred just after a year!
RMA once, but the problem came back to my RMAed set once my warranty is over! If I just use it normally (Programming/Internet/Work), it will work fine. But these task does not do justice to my Core 2 Quad with 8GB of RAM!
I thought that I am getting an iMac soon and will not need a graphics card, but after thinking for a few weeks, I think that is still a long way! I am guessing the iMac will be refreshed with a new design in September 2011 and that is the time I am going to get it!.
