Challenge! - New a custom PC that beats this one but for less?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Here is the one to compare to:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883220445&Tpk=N82E16883220445

BASICS of the one above. for those of you like me (lazy atm)
  • AMD FX-Series FX-8300 (3.30GHz)
  • 8GB DDR3 1TB HDD Capacity
  • Windows 7 Home Premium
  • AMD Radeon HD 8760


I need the price be between $500 - $600 (closer to $50), but needs to be better than this. Possible?

Uses will be mostly video editing and music producing.

and.... GO!




Thanks in advanced for the help.

Not so much gaming, but maybe some. Mostly video editing and music production. I know this price point isn't ideal, but this is for a friend and his team with not much of a budget.

Well the 8320 is a 8 core but you won't really get a build for less than $500 for that I can get it to $600 and using quality PSU and HD which most prebuilts don't. What hurts is you needing a OS, since thats almost $100 off the bat and prebuilts have deals with microsoft so don't have to pay much for windows

This price point is superior in everyway. Faster ram/gpu/HDD/much better PSU/better looking case/even some room for OC on the mobo. thumb.gif

If you're connected to a university (.edu) ending for an e-mail sometimes you can get windows for cheaper then that as well.

7770 is the same as 8760 except for ram it seems so its good enough

With todays prices, thats about as cheap as i can get it with an 8core, and parts that are of acceptable quality without going used/refurb etc.
