New build help.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello,

This is for a family member(s), I overheard them talking about getting a new pc but I want to show em' before they buy one what they could get.

I already have idea's but I would like to see some of yours.

Use this site: www.pccasegear.com

Budget: $850 AUD

What they need (not including computer itself);

Mouse, keyboard, monitor and speakers.

HDD space isn't to important 500GB should do.

Fractal design R3 Titanium (They like the brushed aluminium look (their house appliances are all that look (tv's, kitchen appliances)))

AMD or intel doesn't matter. no gpu wont be gaming or anything. just light browsing and video watching.

Thanks.

I'd get links but i'm kind of in work atm (sorry).

I'd suggest the i3-2100, or similar. You won't be taxing it so it's more than capable.

Getting 4/8gb of ram is right, 1333Mhz is the standard and it'll run perfectly well.

Any motherboard would do the job, if you wanted a bit of graphics power on your side a 5450 or even a GTX 460 would be plenty.

As far as HDD is concerned, a Samsung F3 should suffice. I'm pretty sure you can get 500gb models too.

Hope I helped in some way.

Yeah thats kind of my build but now I want to see an amd build because I know they can be cheap sometimes.

Yeah they can, just the only other really cost efficient way would be if you got a Phenom II X2, but then again the i3-2100 is better than that.

The only difference would be the price of motherboard/cpu for AMD, except considering the i5-2500k and i7-2600k are so competitively priced the i3-2100 is equally so.

Even i'm thinking of getting it for a low-end system. I'm thinking it's the way to go. Same sort of budget too. biggrin.gif

Fm1(Llano) is really good for a non gaming computer.
