How does this look?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Father's computer broke and he wants me to price something out for him. Will be used for browsing, Office products etc. No gaming or anything of that sort.
Already have a 5770 and 4gb XMS3 (1.65v ddr3 ram). Also keyboard, monitor, mouse. Might have a hard drive too.
Little Skeptical about all the bad reviews of the Mobo on Newegg though.
Trying to be under $400.
Any comments appreciated!
It's been a few years since I built mine so I might be forgetting something.

If it's only for browsing why not go with the sandy bridge Pentium g630 or 620 lot cheaper

I'll try to see if I can get him to budge on that, but convincing him that he doesn't need an i5 took a little work in the first place.

Haha well the marketing and branding has to work on someone! Will one be more future proof than the other? I'll be going to college in a year and a half and need something that will be stable.

Future prof for word processing? It won't matter if you want to game though yeah i5 would be better. I do remember seeing the Pentiums actually perform better then some phenom in non multi threaded games somewhere

Didn't realize how silly that sounded. So basically anything will fulfill what he needs done, and I don't really need to worry about it?

Basically. Think about it this way, a cell phone can do word processing. That being said an i3 would be faster. But crossing the net I doubt you would see a difference. My atom NetBook cruises the net just fine
