The Hoplite is Alexander PCs entry level build - perfect for those who are new to gaming, or want an office PC that isn’t full of old tech like mechanical hard drives. This build is INSANE value for money, and was deliberately designed to be easy to upgrade in the future.
The Hoplite features Intel’s Core i3-10100 processor with integrated Intel UHD graphics. With a 500GB PCIe M.2-2280 NVMe Solid State Drive, this machine is way ahead of the mechanical hard drives you’ll find in most off-the-shelf PCs. A typical mechanical hard drive has read and write speeds of 80-160 MB/s. The model SSDs which we use are a minimum of 2000/1700 MB/s read and write speed rating. Conservatively, at least 10x faster.
A GIGABYTE B460M D3H motherboard serves as the backbone of this system, and provides plenty of room for future upgrades as well with plenty of PCI lanes to add discrete graphics down the road.
We round this build out with a very generous serving of 16GB of DDR4-3200 speed Corsair Vengeance RAM, and we power the system with a semi-modular Corsair CX550M power supply. The 550-watts of efficient 80-plus Bronze rated power is more than enough juice to add upgrades down the road without the need to replace the power supply as well.
The Hoplite comes with Windows 10 Home 64-bit edition fully installed and updated. We also install and update all necessary drivers prior to shipping your PC.
