Question

Is the Revolt 2 Extreme Z370 what I'm looking for?

by GrandStag / January 21, 2018 9:27 PM PST

Hello everyone! I have a question. I'm trying to purchase a premade PC that can be upgraded in the future. I currently do a TON of video editing, animation, and voice work, and I'm hoping to finally be able to game in the future with this PC. I'm curious if the Revolt 2 Extreme- Z370 is what I'm looking for or should I go for something else? Also, what additional attachments should I get given this link?

Some odd choices there.

The 64GB SSD will run out of space too fast to be worth it. Even the bare min here is 120 and I suggest moving to 240. Or skip the HDD and pile that money into the biggest SSD you can get. 1TB drives are cheap to add later.

The 600 Watt PSU is a bare minimum almost guaranteed to have you pulling hair out at a year or two.

Bump those numbers up.

Do you have a premade computer set up you would recommend?

I cheat on these things.

I'll use a design like https://www.reddit.com/r/PCMasterRace/wiki/builds or pick up a nice enough pre-built to add my own GPU.

What you noted is OK but that SSD is just too small and the PSU is bare min. Both, once you get some time with the machine will haunt you as folk should have warned you about that area.

Does it have the ports you need to connect your stuff?

Do take the free upgrades to the ssd/psu/ram.


It would not be something I would buy......personal pref.
Small case....think heat.
Fancy lighting.....butt ugly.
