Build for sister

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, my sister's eMachine died recently so I told her I would price her out a machine and build it for her.

The budget is as low as possible for a machine that will last her 4+ years.

She browses the internet, facebook games, music and movies. She might also play some casual type games if it's able to. (Sims 3 etc)

Please let me know if you can find better options. I'm sticking with Intel, but everything else I don't care about brand names.

Must be from NCIX.com

Here's what I'm thinking so far:

Intel Core i5 2300 - $190

ASUS P8P67 LE ATX LGA1155 - $138

Mushkin Enhanced Silverline Stiletto 4GB 2X2GB - $46

XFX GT 240 512mb - $86

Antec Neo Eco 450C Power Supply - $30

Antec Three Hundred Mini Tower Gaming Case - $50

Total = ~$540

If you want like cheap as possible drop down to an i3, cheaper mobo. also you can get a case that comes with the PSU.
If you don't care about that then that all looks fine for a basic internet-facebook thing.

Cpu: http://ncix.com/products/?sku=58339&...ufacture=Intel

Motherboard: http://ncix.com/products/?sku=59098&...SI%2FMicroStar

gpu: http://ncix.com/products/?sku=48629&...X&promoid=1324 <<weekly special till the 25th, its $29.99

OR

if you get the i5 2500k: http://ncix.com/products/?sku=57962&...ufacture=Intel

it will last her a long time and she can just use the onboard video from it. It plays a lot of games on some decent settings, especially for your sisters uses. more power, cheaper than cpu + gpu and if she really wants to she can just get a new gpu later, rather than wasting money on something she won't use.

This power supply is much more reliable: http://ncix.com/products/?sku=54842&...acture=Corsair

I always use Corsair, antec is "okay".
