Need help with a work machine for myself

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey there!
First of all I have to say English isn't my native language so sorry if I write something bad. My apologies.

I appreciate your help and your time reading this! So..

This is my doubt:

I'm building this for me to work:

Samsung 840 Pro 128gb (OS + important software)
MSI B75MA-E33 Motherboard
Corsair Vegeance 8GB (2 x 4 GB)
Intel Core i3-3225 Dual-Core Processor 3.3 GHz

I already have a 7200rpm drive for storage, a CD reader, Mid tower case, and Win7 Ultimate OS licence. (Did I missed any hardware?)
This work CONFIGURATION it's COMPATIBLE?
Should I buy another motherboard or MSI's it's fine?
I also don't know what PSU to buy.. I dont like generic ones. I don't know how much watts is this PC going to need? I need reliable PSU..

Alot of question, sorry!

SPOILER: IM NOOB when it comes to what hardware to buy, sorry wackosmiley.gif

I want this PC for work, with alot of speed and that I can use it for atleast a few years.

Thank you very much

Hello

That looks like a decent build.

About the motherboard, it does seem a bit basic. You get very few expansion slots and only 2 ram slots. If you can spend the extra then getting a gigabyte or asus board with more expansion slots and 4 ram slots would make it more future proof.

For the psu, a good quality 350 - 450 watt would be more then enough. something like the xfx core series 450 watt is very good value depending on where you live.

What motherboard you recommend me to get for a fair price on Amazon and PSU? Can you give me a link?
So that would be all, i'm buying it tomorrow.

It will be fast right? All compatible and friendly to each other hardware also, right?

Thank you very much!! thumb.gif
