New build for a friend

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I'm putting this PC together for a friend. It won't be used for gaming, mostly surfing the internet and email etc. Here is what I have come up with so far:

So far the total is up to $613.00. Is there anything you guys think I could change to save a few dollars?

I edited the OP with another pic of the 2nd half of the list as I don't know how to crop etc. I should have noted they picked that case specifically so I have to keep it. Anything else though is fair game.

Have you seen the Shell Shocker from NewEgg today? Should save you about $50 off your current build and is essentially the same components.

Other than that it looks good, although I'd be tempted to look for a better deal on a monitor and Windows. I just saw Windows 7 Home for $20 less yesterday but it looks like the deal is over.

Nice, checking that out now.

Better ram. +$2
Triple core CPU +$2

Also, the PSU in that shell shocker is crap. And it has a different case...
Oh, and that dvd drive is not a burner, so... you should not get it.

you can save $5 by going to a Seagate HDD. It is a little slower, but the difference will be hardly noticeable. I probably wouldn't do this, I was just pointing it out there.

You can save more money if you switch to a Biostar or MSI mobo. Both companies are still very reliable.

Also, the power supply is super overkill, you can power 2-3 systems with that PSU. Get a cheap Antec and keep the reliability of the Corsair PSU.
