Customer Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value for money Goes really well with a fast AMD processor and can be paired with a fast GPU thanks to the PCIe 2.0 slot. Not the most features or speed but for the price, you cant go wrong! 28 May 2014

It would be most helpful if you would kindly let me know if I would be able to use an SSD instead of an IDE drive to benefit from the faster data read/write rates of the SSD.
