Please give me your opinions on this build

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 

this computer is going to be used mainly for internet/email use. no crazy games are going to be played, but i decided to make the computer a little more high-end because i'm building this for my uncle who wants it to be futureproof for a few years. these are the specs. also, please recommend a motherboard if you don't like this one for some reason. also, please recommend a case (with USB 3.0 ports). i chose this one just to choose one, but he doesn't really want a case with lights in it. so please recommend a case and motherboard and/or any other changes you would make.

OK

Ditch the i7 and go with the i5 2500k, the memory is fine.

Get rid of the seagate and go with the samsung 1TB F3. I'd go with two of them instead.

Get rid of the case go with the CM 690.

Power supply is miles too much, go with the TX 650V2

As for a mobo, go with this

That motherboard is overkill if you don't plan on gaming (judging by video card, it isn't a major priority)

Here's one that would be a much better option
GIGABYTE GA-P67X-UD3-B3

EDIT-Go for the Core i5 instead
