My First Rig!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My father's computer got fried in a recent storm...so he asked me to build him one.
He won't be doing anything special on it, just internet browsing, word, etc.

This will be my first ground-up build (and I only have 1 weekend that I will be home b4 college), so it MUST go smoothly!

This is what I was thinking:

Case:
XION Solaris XON-403 ~ $39.99

Motherboard:
ECS 671T-M (V1.0) LGA 775 SiS 671 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard ~ $44.99

CPU:
Open Box: Intel Pentium D 805 Smithfield 2.66GHz ~ $73.99

CPU Cooling:
Spire SP507B7-U 80mm Ball ~ $21.99

Video Card:
I have a GeForce 7300 LE PCI-E x16 lying around the house ~ $0.00

RAM:
WINTEC AMPO 1GB DDR2 667 ~ $39.99

PSU:
Winsis KY-500ATX ATX12V 400W ~ $24.99

Hard Drive:
Western Digital Caviar 160GB - OEM ~ $48.99

CD/DVD Drive:
LITE-ON Black 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM IDE ~ $17.99

And, last, but not least the OS: (changed to Home)
XP Home - OEM ~ $89.99

Subtotal $406.90

Looks like a nice budget build. Will he really need XP pro though? you could save a little bit of cash if you just got the home version, unless he specifically needs some features that only Pro offers.

The case looks nice too, neon green

Good luck, hope it goes smoothly.
