Ararreola's Build

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ararreola Hi, needs a computer for a budget of under $800 she does not play any graphic intensive games nor does she require a quad. She's not sold on overclocking but I want to give her some head room incase she changes her mind.


Motherboard: DFI P35 Open box $99

Power Supply; Corsair 750tx $99

DVD ROM; LITE-ON Black 20X DVD Sata $23.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106263



Grand Total $839

It came in over budget and does not include a case However. the q6600 and the 9800gtx are overkill and could be replaced with a lesser processor and price drop $100 and a lesser video card and price drop $100 to save altogether and bring the total in around $600.

you picked some nice RAM, a nice motherboard. Since its open box, it may or may not come with the I/O shield, which sucks. Great deal for the hard drive!

i think you should keep the quad, but definitely step down for the graphics card. When you say she doesn't play any graphics intensive games, do you mean that she still plays games or doesn't play games at all?

btw, that power supply is much more than you will need. take a look at this:

Corsair VX550


consider this for a CPU cooler:

i guess if she doesn't really care about looks, this is one of the cheapest computer cases:
