low end pc for work

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hello,
I need a low end for basic internet surfing, document writing and movie streaming. the budget is around 400 to 450€ and the monitor, keyboard and mouse are excluded.
The case should be elegant because it should fit in my living room.
Thanks

I just did a build with similar requirements.

Case wise, the Xigmatek Asgard is excellent for the money. Looks nice, well made, just lacks a few niceties like replacable PCIe blanks and thumbscrews inside (both of which could be easily added). The Asgard pro comes with two very quiet fans (once downvolted).

I also used a coolermaster hyper 212 evo in it, which I was also very impressed with as far as value for money goes, unbelievably good for the money.

The build I did was roughly this:

GA-Z77-D3H
i3-2100
8GB DDR3-1600 Kingston HyperX Blu
AMD 6670
Antec Basiq 450w
Xigmatek Asgard
Lite-on DVD burner

For a living room build, it'll look fine, but if you want something even nicer the Silverstone Sugo SG01-F is really good but probably too expensive for this build.
