True. I'd like to keep the power supply fully modular though (convenience factor on my part :? ) I'm sure there are some cheaper options I haven't seen though.

This certainly trims the fat off the intel option. Would be nice if someone with some experience with AMD's new love fest would chime in though. Personally I am more than confident that intel's current offerings will last them well but, AMD seems to be onto something (or I could just save the APU for another pet project of mine, devil-smiley-019.gif )

What benefit is there of having modular ATX12V and EPS12V cables?

 

I am biased toward Intel myself. :) At least, right now.

None per se, especially in this case. It's not all set in stone yet so I may change a few things as I collect parts over the next few weeks.

Then, the 450-M would be perfect. It's a very good quality-made modular PSU while still being overkill on both the capacity and the quality.

Is there a reason you went with that processor? the 4670k is cheaper and unlocked just in case your kinfolk want to engage in shenanigans of the Overclocking kind thumb.gif
WRT your Amd build scrap the FM2+platform since you are going with a discrete gpu, instead pick up an Fx 6300 + asus 99x pro or evo mobo or even a 970

I highly doubt they will get into any overclocking. That would result in a multi day session with me over the phone or mobile skype trying to fix what they broke (y brother is tech illiterate, my mom and dad are hardly intested at the point and my sister is to into herself to trust leaving an unlocked cpu at her fingertips.

The apu build. The discrete graphics are really a *what if* decision. Somewhere down the road if they get into any simi serious gaming I may get them a GPU. (also I'm pretty sure at this point I want to build around and APU for my own selfish techy purposes devil-smiley-019.gif

I'd probably go Intel for this, and would definitely get a GPU.

I wouldn't really say you should get the 270x you put in the Intel build you linked, but a 260x or even lower end would be good. It's more about getting a GPU to avoid the integrated one rather than a great GPU.

As for the CPU, an i5 may or may not be overkill. If you feel an i5 is more than necessary, and a quad isn't needed, maybe picking up a Celeron would be a good option.
Take a look at this one for $40.
http://www.microcenter.com/product/428533/Celeron_G1820_27GHz_LGA_1150_Boxed_processor

Compare the two
G1820: http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Celeron+G1820+%40+2.70GHz&id=2129
i5 4670: http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i5-4670+%40+3.40GHz&id=1933

The Celeron appears to be around 1/3 of the overall performance, but it has half the cores.
The per-core speed is around 3/4 that of the i5 at 1/5 of the price.

The price difference right there would allow for an extra SSD or even a couple of HDDs.
One of the best things to prevent the need for any tech support is an automated scheduled backup and a simple lesson in showing them how to restore from a backup if ever needed.


You didn't really give us a budget, so maybe suggesting a Celeron was a dumb thing to do, but if you're looking to save some money it was worth mentioning IMO.
