Gaming requires lots of space and you do need an HDD, and if you do want to game on this PC then go for this SSHD, a faster solution than traditional HDDs but is a bit costly. If you do not want to game get a 4TB HDD at the same price or use a 2TB SSD instead, the choice is yours.

So, that ends up with almost all the important components of the mini-PC build and the total price sums up to $2,010.82, and its mostly due to the unavailability of stocks due to the pandemic.

Also, you can do a here and there in the main components like if you do not need much horsepower to step down a bit and use that money for the GPU or if you want an X570 mini-ITX motherboard to use the cheaper Ryzen 9 3900X to save some bucks. It depends on your workload and preference for how you want to configure this mini-PC. Do share your experience in the comments below…😉
