$1000 build for my grandma

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, as the title says i have 1k to build my grandmother a computer the only thing we do not need is a monitor everything else we need and she wants to put win 8 on there.

her current laptop is dying it was a dell it had 4gb of ram with a core i5 430m so i would prefer to stay with Intel on this build she doesn't really need a video card since haswell has hd 4600 built in but if you could help me pick out all parts except for monitor i would be greatly appreciative, also i would prefer to stay in the bitfenix prodigy case because i showed her that and she was in love!

well if your grandma will only be doing internet surfing you will not need to speed all that money.
going the apu would be alot better but that;s up to you.
if you really want intel here you go

all you need now is your case os and a hard drive, you could always reuse the hd from the laptop and get a ssd
this pc will be a beast for her and you are well under the budjet

Honestly even an i5 is probably overkill for what she wants to do, I'd just get an i3 haswell, it'll still be 2x faster than the previous processor.
