300 Euro for a AMD rig which will last some time - Page 4

post #31 of 69
Llano will be mini-itx, will include 2-4 phenom ii cores, and will have very good quality onboard graphics. Bulldozer launches in June, and I think Llano launches in the third quarter.

Alright, it seems like it will be mini-ITX then. Splendid.

I would recommend a Samsung F3 1TB/500GB, but how much does she actually need ?

Also, something like an Antec EarthWatts Green EA-380D as the PSU. It should be plenty and very reliable.


There you have a cheap system, including the Llano which will launch around the 5th-10th of June, if I remember right. This would be my recommendation but if you are able to find a better PSU or hard drive, then, by all means, go for those.

That's very nice! I like I like I like. This Llano is something to even consider also for myself as a HTPC. Oh man, you people give me very good options and so many thing to choose from. Hope the Llano will cost me about 200-250 Euro, don't have to get the topmodel, but still. A decent 890GX board is also still not very cheap at the moment and you will be looking at 200 Euro for that and a decent CPU together.

She is not a heavy gamer or so, sometimes she downloads some movies and games through Usenet, but that's it. I think a 500GB or a little bit more is enough. She also has a external USB drive, so enough space to run with for a while.

I understand, but my sis wants parts and so on from the Netherlands.
She is picky to that, she doesn't want second hand, I am afraid.
Sorry, it's a woman, what can I say ? But thanks for the tip ! Appreciate it!

Indeed, the prices are good atm.
But I don't find this a god time for any platform upgrade when AMD (and perhaps Intel as well) is releasing new a CPU series within one or two months.

If the performance pr./€ of the Llano doesn't seem good enough for you, remember that the AM3 prices will presumably fall when Llano has hit the market.

I think you are perhaps correct about the timing of choosing a new rig.
I see prices of AM3 already going down and it's not that I am in a hurry.
I think I can make my sis wait one more month. She will probably think it's understandable to wait for just a month and also perhaps it will save her some money and she will have new technology. That's always a good reason for a woman. Then she can buy a new pair of shoes from the money that she saves eventually

I found something on Alternate. I ordered my rig from that website as well. However, I'm not sure about the shipping. I did cost about 15€ to ship it to Denmark.

Anyway:

Western Digital WD5000AADS -36€ (pick another if you wish, but this is fairly cheap considered it's reviews and capacity)

Kingston ValueRAM 2x2GB 1333MHz - 37€

Antec EA-380D Green - 46€ (there is a BeQuiet with good reviews and lower price, but I'm not sure how capable/reliable it is)


119€

Gives you 181€ for the Llano APU and Mini-ITX motherboard.
I'd say you can cut down on the HDD and RAM if needed.

Alternate is about 10-15km away from my home, so I can pick it up in about 20 minutes
I'll think I will go with your advise to wait on Llano.
If in the end of June there is still nothing anounced or available here in the Netherlands, then I will check some more for the "older" stuff.

Everybody, thanks on your advise, especially with the shopping lists, that's very nice of you all.
