Custom Buld PC for under $400 - Page 2

post #11 of 22
I would also look for the deals in the microcenter, you get 40$ off on a combo, plus sometimes if you get a processor, they offer a mobo for 1$ or a bit more.
recently my buddy got such a deal for fx4100 for 109 plus mobo for 1$, but you have to pay taxes on that

You can't use promo codes with combo deals (usually).
There's a Fry's in Renton, perhaps you might wish to go there and check for some deals.  Or come up here to Vancouver!!! We have NCIX and other great computer stores biggrin.gif

Well its gonna be hard to have a rig that's future proof for under $500 FYI

Personally, I find cases with Power supplies pre-installed to be better for budget builds

and try to get things with free shipping, or open box/ re certified products

Believe me I KNOW! I think its hard to future proof even for over $10,000 biggrin.gif
Seems every day they come up with something new, but as long as he can open most programs play occasional games he will be fine. What I meant for future proofing is SATA3, USB3, decent GPU that will be able to play games that come out in next couple years, etc. Basically its a budget/future proof ratio I worry about...

What makes it hard for me is low budget, high demands in performance yet as stable as possible so overclocking is not good.(its for a relative and I dont want to hear about it once I put it together)

^ Not a bad start but wow that case and the RAM and even the HDD are quite the ripoffs.

Case: $75 shipped for poor cooling layout, no bottom PSU, no painted interior, no behind-try cable mangement... when at nearly half price an NZXT Source 210 slays that case in features-price
RAM: Can get much better DDR3-1600 kits for less

HDD: You can get a 500GB new HDD (not even refurbished) at NCIX US right now (see Online Deals forum) for the same price!
