Build a computer for $700

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
A guy i work with wants me to build him a computer. But in all honesty im to lazy to make a list. I'll proof read it but with school and work im not doing it tonight haha. See what you guys can come up with. Basically he's going to be surfing the internet and some light gaming. He didn't specify the size of the case so im guessing a mid tower. He doesn't need alot of storage space either.

Surfing the internet?  Light gaming?  Which games?  This budget is overkill.  With it you can manage a Phenom II x4 or x6 + HD6950 + 1TB hard drive, easily.

You should really consider what the build is for - i.e. whether to portion more of the budget towards power efficiency and cool-running.  I can see an A8 APU being good for his purposes but with this kind of budget you could build two A8 APU PCs.

That's his words, not mine. He really didnt specify. I just asked him what his budget was and he said $700.

^ Building a 3870k build and not making use of the integrated graphics is a waste.  Esp. because it costs more than AM3+/Phenom II or FX based setup.  Might as well go AM3+ and leverage the futureproofing to AM3+ Piledriver-based CPU.  At $700 you could easily manage a Phenom II x4 + x6 with an HD 6950.  An HD 6790 is extremely underwhelming for a $700 budget.

 

Also 320GB for $100... not impressed, you can get 500GB for $76 shipped at NCIX.

i like this PSU more just cause of the fully modular cables (also Bronze certified):
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151095&Tpk=N82E16817151095

i would get this case instead (much higher quality imo for about the same price and allows for future upgrades):
