From a quick look on Gigabyte's website, the only ones coming with onboard cache are the UD Pro and Aorus line. In the 240GB capacity range, I would spend 15 more pounds and get the ADATA SX6000 Pro since it use the newer NVME protocol and got onboard cache. Alternatively, TeamGroup L5 LITE 3D seem to be okay because it got onboard cache. Sure it's on the older and slower SATA protocol but compare to the other ones in the lower bracket, seem to be a better pick.

I would repurpose a corporate machine with a Core i5 4570-4590, 8 GB RAM, 500 GB SSD and a RX570. More than enough for 1080p gaming.

I was still gaming with my i5 2500k 16 gb ram and a 8 gb 480 card with out any issues but I got curious and bought a slightly newer board and cpu ( if I remember correctly it is a i5 4670k or close to it)but I noticed slight difference between the two but I think it had more to do with the newer board has a m.2 drive which Installed and m.2drive which seems to only increase the boot speed a little of and also the new cpu supports my vid card better meaning the graphics a a little crispier when compared to my old board but again as for performance not much difference when gaming
