Build for a church. Need a little help choosing parts. - Page 3

post #21 of 70
definitely go with a red/black color scheme rolleyes.gif

On a serious note.. The HDD pricing joke was originally blamed on floods in Thailand. It was later revealed it was induced by WD, Seagate and the rest of them to rake in big profits. Woohoo!!!

EDIT: For average everyday use, a WD Caviar Green would suffice. Go Blue or Black if you want increased performance.

What would be a decent HDD? It doesn't need any more than 300Gb.
Happened around 5months ago. It's quite sad. I got a 1tb hdd this summer for $58
You could probably get away with a 5900rpm drive since it's not for gaming or anything that intensive (see brand new)

If you're willing to try a refurb: a WD 7200rpm 160gb for $29: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136910

If you want brand new: Seagate 5900rpm 160gb for $39: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148722

I dont know about Intel in this case.

What are you going to do with the computer? There is the potential for the AMD processor you linked to unlock into an x6.

If you are going the video editing route, Id go with AMD x6.
Which goes well with: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131767

If you are just going to record audio and project stuff, go with the x2 Intel.

Now there are H67 boards that can overclock Intel K series processors. The Asus P8H67M-Pro comes to mind.

If I were you, Id grab an SSD.
Why? Because it will be the most noticeable and consistent indicator of speed and less than savvy users with the money to burn will always remember you for future builds.

At $99 for a 128gb Crucial M4, I would definitely get that. 128gb should be enough for slides etc.

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103887 (likely overkill, and if you feel like it, you can try your hand at unlocking the cores).
Power supply+HDD Combo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.937247
Video card(unsure if it'll work for your needs): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131441

Total price: 363$

Hopefully that's about what you asked for, I'd say it's a pretty decent Price:Performance Ratio.

*edit* Actually, here's a slightly different build if you want to go this route.

whichever has Price:Performance Ratio.

i3 smashes X2.

You say the PC needs to be run at a tight space, in that case how about Pentium G620 with H61 ITX?
