Super-low budget build help ($300) - Page 2

post #11 of 30
I don't mean to be rude, but don't blow your cash on an SSD... Come on people, you can get a 320 gb hard drive for 49 bucks, which holds more than that SSD, costs half as much, and keep in mind he does play at least one video game... That extra 50 bones could be put towards a low/mid range gpu.

And you guys are forgetting about an OS it seems, unless he plans to pirate windows or run linux.

i chose the laptop for one reason:
1-wireless card built in
2-built in camera
3-built in mic
4-built in speakers
5-Screen+pad+keyboard+ PORTABILITY!


These are worth the extra 70!
Not everyone has the extra 70 bucks. As I recall, in highschool when I got money... that was it. I didn't have the option to just wait for another paycheck.

This is pretty win if you can swing the extra 30 bones.

Still have to find an OS, though pirating 7 isn't very hard...

You are correct. The object was to build a system for under $300.00. Not practical for a decent gaming rig. I build these for folding, that's all they do. Ubuntu for an OS and I'm off and running. My advice was based on the being patient, doing some research, and at least starting with something that could handle most anything in today's world. The graphics card can come later. The SSD, in my opinion, is quite practical. Later it can be backed up with a standard platter drive. A guy has to start somewhere! tongue.gif

Maybe all of this opinion and recommendations will open his mind to the endless possibilities! thumb.gif

While I agree with you, an SSD is at the absolute bottom of the list of importance when it comes to general use.

I don't even see the need for it in a pure folding rig either. If he gets the standard drive now, he will have plenty of time to fill it with music and movies while he is struggling to game with 300 dollars xD

I mean.

Supporting your local retailer by buying an officially licensed copy of Windows 7 isn't very hard!
