Medium processor core personal computers built by MSI have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all PCs (not just medium processor core personal computers) and found that MSI also has good ratings across its entire range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to it.
Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity
The B85C-060EU has a fairly big total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the B85C-060EU. Medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago have total storage capacity of between 4GB and 3.6TB.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 1TB total storage capacity PCs currently available including the DELL PowerEdge T20 (£319.94) which has better reviews.
If you would prefer a PC with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Asus G20AJ (£760.36) (1TB).
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on PCs of this age and type.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on PCs of a similar spec and age to it.
Six USB 2.0 Ports

DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many PCs of a similar age and type to it.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This personal computer supports a GDDR5 discrete graphics memory type, which is the most commonly supported discrete graphics memory type on medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
14 Reasons Against
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of similar spec computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the B85C-060EU range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz. The B85C-060EU has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (only 1,100 megahertz) amongst personal computers of this age.
Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor
Across all the PCs that are a comparable age to the B85C-060EU the max memory bandwidth supported processor range from 10GB/s to 68GB/s. At only 25.6 gigabytes per second, the B85C-060EU has a very slow max memory bandwidth supported processor compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago.
Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
The MSI B85C-060EU has one of the smaller max internal memory supported processors (only 32 gigabytes) amongst PCs of this age. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year the max internal memory supported processors range from 2GB to 770GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 65GB.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on desktop computers of this type and age. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
The B85C-060EU is a one PS/2 port computer. Most of the other PCs of a comparable age and spec to the B85C-060EU have one PS/2 port.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of computers of a comparable age and spec to the B85C-060EU range from 1GB to 64GB. At only 1.024 gigabytes, the B85C-060EU has a fairly small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other computers that came out around the same time as the B85C-060EU.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The MSI B85C-060EU has a greater number of memory slots than most computers of a similar spec and age to it. The most frequently found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this MSI PC.
Only One DisplayPort
The B85C-060EU is a one DisplayPort computer.
Quite Small Processor Cache
At only 6 megabytes, the B85C-060EU has a fairly small processor cache compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that came out more than a year ago. PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the B85C-060EU have processor caches of between 2MB and 10MB.
Only Four Processor Threads
The B85C-060EU is a four processor thread computer. Most of the other PCs of a comparable age and spec to the B85C-060EU have between four and seven processor threads.
Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed
The slowest memory clock speed of computers of this type and age is 1,000MHz, the fastest is 2,400MHz, and the average memory clock speed is 1,800MHz. The B85C-060EU has one of the slowest memory clock speeds (only 1,600 megahertz) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Quite Low System Bus Data Transfer Rate
Medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than a year have system bus data transfer rates of between 5GT/s and 8GT/s. With a system bus data transfer rate of only 5 Gigatransfers per second, the MSI B85C-060EU has a very low system bus data transfer rate compared to most of the other computers that came out around the same time as the B85C-060EU.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
The average maximum internal memory of PCs of a similar type and age to the B85C-060EU is 75GB, and the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 790GB. The MSI B85C-060EU has one of the smaller maximum internal memory (only 32,768 megabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
The lightest comparable spec desktop computer that has been available for a similar time to the B85C-060EU is 38g heavy, the heaviest is 100kg, and the average weight is 7.5kg. At 10 kilograms, the B85C-060EU is quite heavy compared to most of the other computers of a similar age and type to the B85C-060EU.
4 Other reasons to consider the MSI B85C-060EU
Released Over a Year Ago
This personal computer has been on the market for over a year.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The B85C-060EU has a fairly average processor clock speed (3.2 gigahertz) compared to most of the other computers of a comparable age and spec to the B85C-060EU.
If you would prefer a PC with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the P310 (£759.60) (3.3GHz), or the ThinkCentre M73 SFF (£320.15) (3.3GHz) both from Lenovo or the HP Z240 (£676.69) (3.3GHz).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the B85C-060EU has a pretty average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of this spec and age.
We compared all the other 1TB hard drive capacity personal computers to this personal computer and we think the DELL PowerEdge T20 (£319.94) which has better reviews is also worth considering.
If this medium processor core desktop computer hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the DELL 8900 (2TB) which also has a higher rating.
+2 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the MSI B85C-060EU has a fairly typical internal memory compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that were launched around the same time as the B85C-060EU.
If this MSI personal computer internal memory is too small for you then you might want to consider the Acer Aspire XC-705 (£449.00) (10GB), or the HP 810-477na (£939.99) (12GB).
