Kwick help on a build...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have a friend planning on buying stuff within a week. He wants it under $800.00 USD.

I am way over-budget. What can I do to knock $150.00 USD off it? Please do not try to get me to add more expensive stuff. This is what he told me when he asked me to make a build:
  • Main game is World of Warcraft
  • Will be used for a lot of menial tasks, (i.e. Word Processing)
  • Must have a Dual Core
  • He has no parts but a keyboard and mouse
  • I still have to add speakers

Why don't you go the AMD way then? or he wants Intel?

If you want, you can save on the:

-> Case $39.99
-> OS $99.99
-> Optical Drive $13.99

That is all that I can squeeze = $838.89 a saving of $82.99

The "Dual-Core" line of pentium processors can be had for cheaper than the C2D's for sure, and then you could probably go for a cheaper mobo as well,

Dual-Core E2220

Another option is to just go for a cheaper 17" screen?

Don't know how budget you want to go though, because that's a pretty budget processor.

The old E6300 isn't the way to go. If you have to spend $150, may try the E7200 $135, E6550 or E6750. Otherwise, get E2xxx and save some mony. Change the HD to WD 250 AAKS. Change the PSU to Antec EA-430W

If you are going for a budget dual core, get the E7200 wolfdale for $135. It runs at 2.53GHz and has a 9.5x multi!

Here is a decent Thermaltake case for $29.99

edit: Linskingdom beat me to it!

This seems way better than what I chose. Thanks so much for your help!

+Rep for all you guys!

BTW, the Brisbane AMD is out of stock. Expected back in 9 days, but this will be ordered within the week, no exceptions. Any thoughts?

NP. Just get the next best one, its only like 7-8 dollars more. I honestly picked one at random

You can go up or down the ladder, just dont go down more than 2 series (less than 2.4ghz).
