Medion Akoya P5330 E all … and fast SSD

For Windows 10 starts quickly, the operating system is on a fast SSD – and because the 119 Gigabyte construed also fit one or more programs and games on it. But the fast SSD does not make a nimble PC, especially a computer for the discerning gamer needs a processor with plenty of power. And the has the Medion: serves as a motor midrange model Core i5 from Intel Skylake series, which are 8 gigabytes of memory of the fast type DDR4 aside.

Gambling? Not VR, but …

To the image reproduction, the discrete graphics card GeForce GTX 750 Ti. That takes care of this card is no longer cutting-edge, you can feel when playing. Manufacturer Nvidia has unveiled the GPU this card in February, 2014.

Gear up? With obstacles …

The upgrade options are not the best: While there are inside a free bay for another hard disk or SSD, but the necessary data transfer SATA connector is missing. And one of the two available PCI Express slots, as for a TV card, will not be useful, because it blocked the graphics card. After all, the power supply offers a free 6-pin and 350 watts of power for retrofitting a stronger graphics card.
