Help with Build for Office

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

I'm working on building two identical computers for an office, and was just wondering on my product choices, and if there was anything better for around the same price range. Here is the build I have so far:

Antec Three Hundred - $49.99 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129042
WD Caviar Blue 500 GB - $38.99 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136073
Corsair CX 430W PSU - $39.99 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139026
G.Skill Rpijaws 4GB (2x2gb) - $42.99 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231277
Intel i5-2300 - $177.99 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115076
MSI P67A-GD55 B3 - $152.99 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130573
Disk Drive (samsung) - $18.99

My main point of concern is the motherboard and graphics cards. These are just office computers so they won't be overclocked, so I don't know how much they play into it. I'm also unsure if it is worth getting a cheap videocard for them as well. I need to keep the price relatively low (we still need monitors and keyboard/mice, budget per computer is roughly $850 including these).

I also saw http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...s&promoid=1097 and was wondering if this deal was worth it?

I am canadian, so the prices are what I can buy them for from ncix.com

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would recommend getting an H67 chipset motherboard. Since you're not going to overclock anyways, you don't need P67. Also, H67 will allow you to use the integrated graphics processor on the i5 2300. If you aren't going to use the computer for graphics-intensive stuff, the integrated graphics will be plenty of power and you won't have to spend money on a separate graphics card.

Hmm. I'll look into the board H67, do you have any suggestions for it?

And I'd like to stick with the i5 if possible for them. What main differences would there be?
