Need help Setting up a build

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

I'm quite new on OC but I badly need your expert advise on what to buy to create a rig that would be suitable for multitasking and is fast. I work online so I do remote access, multiple browsers opened, multiple word and excel files open, using LMS websites (lead management system like boomtown or infusionsoft), online video streaming, skype calls, I also do online games, 2 monitor display etc. I hope you would also consider the budget hehehe. I know I sound kinda lame but I really don't have a clue as to where to start and what I need to get. Hope everyone helps out. Thanks in advance smile.gif

What IS your budget?

Also what games?

Very important factors on the builds we suggest.

My budget is around $300, I just need something basic yet fast and efficient. For the games I play its mostly online RPG games like MU and Cabal Online.

$300 is not enough for a gaming pc, you may be able to find pc that can surf the internet at that price. Nothing for gaming though

This is the best I could do while maintaining quality. It also still needs a OS

If you wish to get risky and don't mind the potential for your PSU to explode(These system are low power, chances are lower then if at full load). Then I can suggest a build with that in mind. likely get under 300$, but here is the current build I suggest.

*edit* actually I'll go ahead and build one now...
*edit2* it isn't worth saving $30 to compromise quality so greatly, nevermind.
