Intel i3 Build / Fujitsu SSD?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

Just a quick question. I'm building a new PC for a friends father before he gets ripped off at a retailer for something he doesn't need.

A few things,

Use:
Web Browsing, basic photo editing, email, word processing.

Requested:
something that's zippy, turns on quickly.

Supplier:
www.pccasegear.com - the best place in Australia to get parts, won't go anywhere else unless emergency or something.

Specs so far:

CPU: Intel i3 3220
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z77M0Dh3-MVP
Ram: Corsair CMX8GB3M2A1600C9 ( 8GB - 2X 4GB )
PSU: Silverstone Strider 500W ST50F-ES
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB
SSD: Fujitsu S306 64 GB SSD
this is the question.
Wireless: Asus PCE-N15 Wireless N PCIe
Case: Silverstone Precision PS08 Micro ATX
ODD: Some standard disc drive
OS: Windows 7 64 Bit

I haven't seen anything on the Fujitsu SSDs. I only need a 60-64GB for boot drive. I can see its a sandforce controller and I haven't had any issues with SSDs and the sandforce controllers.

Can anyone shed light on the Fujitsu SSD?

Total Comes to $790.88 AUD which is about the limit.

If that's really the extent of what it's going to be used for, this system is serious overkill.

First off, 8GB of RAM is way more than you need. If you're looking to save money, no reason to get more than 4. And that PSU is serious overkill. I have an i3 server running on 150W PSU, and it draws barely anything. The SSD is probably overkill too. The outer edge of that 1TB drive will be plenty fast, and if this dude is coming from a computer older than 3 years, it will seem seriously faster.

Honestly, if money is anything of a concern, I'd strongly recommend getting an embedded Atom system in mini-itx form factor. You can find mini-itx mobos with built in wifi to boot. And you get a ridiculously, awesomely small case.

Really, your build is a GPU short of a mid-level gaming system, which is too much for "Web Browsing, basic photo editing, email, word processing."
