$600 mATX Build

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
I tried coming up with a reliable, quick, all-purpose $600 build for non-graphics-intensive tasks.

Is there anything about this build you would change?

To be honest I can't. I guess you might not need all that ram if you are not gaming, but rams cheap anyway.

This build is meant to be a Family Computer. How could it play games like League of Legends or World of Warcraft?

The PSU, you dont need a slimline one.

Add some basic discrete card if you want to be able to game at all. hd4000 doesnt cut it.

Your overspending on ram and motherboard.

IMHO of course wink.gif

That would be a great alternative option. Seems tailor made for a rig like this.

AMD has a great on board GPU the 7660 so no need on GPU and talking about difference the i5 is better but for general use the A10 would be my call BTW you can overclock the A10 too its fun thumb.gif
