Build me a Decent comp

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys never actually posted here but i read alot

im a total n00b wit comps compared to u guys but im pretty decent wit em for sum1 thats not good wit comps if u get waht im trying to say.

Anyway im looking to build a decent comp from this site

http://www.umart.com.au/newindex2.phtml?bid=2

I want u to build what u think is the best combination for roughly $1000, all i need is the box (no monitor or speakers, keyboards etc.).I want it to be a pretty decent comp but i wont play many games on it (xbox gamer) so a good graphics card isnt needed. Il mainly use it for music watching vids and stuff and all round general stuff, i will use it a fair bit. I want a C2D doesnt need to be great probs an E4400 and 2 gig of ram (doesnt need to be the greatest ram). Thanks for those that do it. Also im from australia and would just rather get them from this place then order them from all round.

Quick build. Will need tweaking. The case and PS are not really suggestions, just what they had. And you need a CPU cooler.

thanx i took majority of wat u suggested however opted for the

Asus P5B 775, CORE2EE, P965, 1066FSB, PCIEI6, AUDIO, GbLAN, ATX

and decided i dont even need the graphics card, i dont play any games and dont plan on overclocking or anything. Maybe in the future do sum small case mods but thats it.

p5b doesnt include gfx ! so even if you dont play you ll still need a gfx card to output on your monitor. so find some cheap pcie gfx card to complete your config. or get a mobo that has integrated gfx..


edit:
also since you dont play on the pc ..it seems like the e6600 is an overkill ...to download , surf , watch videos , listen to music and such kind of stuff any cheap c2d will do

so my recommendation would be to pick a cheaper c2d than the e6600 and use the saved money on cooling or whatever else you could need

I think you will find the 8600gt is a good cheep card. It has some built in video decoding thingies But a 7600 is good and you can get a passive cooled one for real silence.

And yes, the CPU is probably too powerful in this build. I should have put a lower one, or the lowest quad if you feel like it.

The non-delux Mobo is probably fine and save you a bit. But buy a good quiet power supply. I did not recommend one so you will have to look.

yep power supply is very important , a good one will deliver stable voltage to your all componants and will expand thier life time vs a crapy power supply that sends volts to low/ too high ...

on the site you posted my pick would be Corsair HX-620 this corsair psu is realy great ...its actually built by seasonic ..its got ultra stable voltages w/ good and preety silent cooling (like all seasonic products)

also dont save money with HDDs , your hdd will contain all your data and you dont what it failing on you with important stuff loaded on it. (good brands : seagate (sturdy hdds but not No 1 for performence) , western digital (great performence but not as sturdy as seagate) , samsung (good overall performence and mostlly very silent).

so to sum it up ...buy a quality PSU and HDD , decent mobo(like the one you chose) , cheap c2d and gfx.... and there you got a nice system that will last and some parts can be used for your future builds ...eg psu and hdd
