Basic web/game build

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My wifes laptop is falling apart so she said she needs a new computer, I agree. Luckily i just RMA'd a 3570k for being DOA and so we already have a really nice processor for her build. She basically just goes to school online so basic web browsing and she dabs in world of warcraft and sims. So I feel the on board graphics will be sufficient. Can you guys build me a computer around this, she won't have any use for a SSD all she needs is HDD, RAM, MOBO and probably a small cute case. I put this together below let me know what you think and feel free to toss in a build you would recommend.

***Already own[ i5 3570k***

Motherboard: ASRock H77M-ITX Mini ITX LGA1155 Motherboard ($106.97 @ Newegg)
Memory: Samsung 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($23.49 @ Newegg)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($62.99 @ NCIX US)
Case: BitFenix Prodigy (White) Mini ITX Tower Case ($79.99 @ NCIX US)
Optical Drive: Samsung SH-222BB/BEBE DVD/CD Writer ($16.98 @ Outlet PC)
Total: $290.42
(Prices include shipping and discounts when available.)

Didn't include a PSU but if someone recommend one would be nice wouldn't imagine i'd need much thinking even 400w would be more then needed. Thanks in advance!

Really not sure why you would go H77 when for a few $$ more you can grab a Z77 board and have some o/c ability in the future to make this a true brute. I'd also recommend spending a couple $$ more and going with some dual channel memory which will effect your iGPU [helps a bit with memory bandwidth]. Last in my small build I have a Silverstone ST50F-ES which is fully modular and would allow for a high end GPU should you chose to go that route in the future.

This is my wifes computer she will never want a high end gpu and will never need to overclock this processor for her uses for a long time. As for the z77, the cheapest itx currently on newegg is $149.99 which is much more then the board im running with. Basically I'm not trying to throw away money on this build, these are all good suggestions but my wife isnt a high end gamer and will never utilize majority of the features. Yeah I could overclock her cpu but this processor will last her a long time for her uses that when it comes to needing to overclock I would almost rather just upgrade her.

my 2cents.gif pick different ram. for another $10 or so you can get some dual channel, and if your wife is anything like my sister 8gb wouldn't hurt at all. I will find her with 4 or 5 browsers open, itunes open, typing a paper, and on skype with her friends. she never closes anything, ever.

Also consider getting her a bigger HD for a little bit more. a 1tb drive shouldn't cost more the $75 and if your girl likes music or movies a lot I can see her filling it up pretty quickly.

Yeah ill get the dual channel ram for her, we decided on the hdd size cause I just looked at her laptop which has like a 300gb hard drive and she has all her stuff on it and only using 80gb still tongue.gif So figured 500gb for her would still be overkill
