New Office Computer for Parent's Store

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Their 5 year old Dell is starting to kick the bucket, so my parents are asking me to build them a new computer.
There budget is with in $400, not including OS/Peripherals.

I'm thinking Intel is the better router, but at this price range would you think AMD would be better?
I'm slowly piecing this together for them over the next month so when I get off for spring break in March I can build it.

Got a good deal on a basic case so far.
$16 with tax and shipping included.
$25 for 4gb extra ddr3 ram I had.

Do you think I should got AMD or Intel for this build?
I would like this to last them at least 4 years. Mainly using the computer for Outlook, Web, Quickbooks, shipping software, etc...

No where close, unfortunately. The close Comp USA is 5 hours away.

I'm starting to think AMD, because their Quads are as cheap or cheaper than Intel's I3s.

Yes, I know their i3's are close to the same speed...
I'm sure a quad would still multitask better though.
