980 PRO with Heatsink 1TB - Excellent 9 months ago.
Solid State Drives

— The 980 Pro with integrated heatsink is a super speedy PCIe gen 4 NVMe SSD. The heatsink provides convenient cooling, making sure your SSD can operate most efficiently. Great choice for your main SSD.

G.SKILL
Ripjaws V DDR4 3200 C16 2x16GB - Excellent 9 months ago.
Memory Kits

— Great speeds and 32GB is plenty for games and applications open at the same time.

Intel
Core i7-9700 - Excellent 9 months ago.
Processors

— Not bad at all in 2023. 8 cores and 8 threads makes this processor very useful for playing and recording/streaming, and having Chrome and other applications open in the background. The speed is nice, the base clock is a bit slow at 3.0 GHz but a turbo up to 4.5 GHz is great. Even though the unlocked version is probably a way better option, this one still holds it's own.

970 Evo Plus NVMe PCIe M.2 1TB - Excellent 9 months ago.
Solid State Drives

— For $50, 1TB of really speedy NVMe SSD speeds, this is a great choice for your storage needs.

Nvidia
GTX 1050 - Good 10 months ago.
Graphics Cards

— Good budget option, but in 2023, it's starting to get outdated. Most models, having 2GB, doesn't help. But, for some of the prices nowadays (As low as $50), it's not that bad.

WD
Blue 3D 500GB - Good 10 months ago.
Solid State Drives

— A good budget SSD. Fast enough read/write speeds, and 500GB is just about enough for a few games. In 2023 though, with how much prices have dropped (These used to retail for about $50, and now they're down to like $30), a 1TB WD Blue SSD isn't too much more (about $50 now), and doubles your storage.

Nvidia
GTX 1080 - Excellent 10 months ago.
Graphics Cards

— Still a beast at 1080p gaming, even in 2023.

Kingston
HyperX DDR3 1600 C9 4x4GB - Excellent 2 years ago.
Memory Kits

— 16GB is plenty for lots of games and can even have multiple chrome tabs open at the same time with minimal performance lost. Not half bad RAM.

Why does UserBenchmark have a bad reputation on reddit?
Marketers operate thousands of reddit accounts. Our benchmarks expose their spiel so they attack our reputation.
Why don’t PC brands endorse UserBenchmark?
Brands make boatloads on flagships like the 4090 and 14900KS. We help users get similar real-world performance for less money.
Why don’t youtubers promote UserBenchmark?
We don't pay youtubers, so they don't praise us. Moreover, our data obstructs youtubers who promote overpriced or inferior products.
Why does UserBenchmark have negative trustpilot reviews?
The 200+ trustpilot reviews are mostly written by virgin marketing accounts. Real users don't give a monkey's about big brands.
Why is UserBenchmark popular with users?
Instead of pursuing brands for sponsorship, we've spent 13 years publishing real-world data for users.
