Customer Build for 13 year old - Page 5

post #41 of 52
He hired you build him a NEW computer, which comes with warranties and the like. If I hired you to build me a new computer (not that I would), and you stuck a used 2 year old graphics card in there, I would be absolutely livid. Not necessarily because of performance but because this is not what I asked you to do, and comes across as extremely shady. Build it with all new parts. Take payment in cash, not in exchanging parts.

I'd go for an XFX power supply and yes, Samsung F3s instead of Seagates.

Guys, don't blatantly talk down about products because you've heard others do it, or because they aren't your favorite. Do the research to see if they are reputable products please. Or others will come along and read what you wrote and fully adopt and believe what you say about innocent products.

It is more than capable of running any high-end single graphic card set up. It looks very well in my opinion and the overall performance is satisfactory. Don't let the minor failures put you off too much and if you are in the market for a 600W unit, the OCZ ModXStream-Pro 600W is worth considering.

The voltage rails were stable and in good standing, each of the +12V rails has 25 Amps, the power supply fan was quiet, and the modular cables worked out well. On top of all of that, this power supply is backed by OCZ with an excellent three-year warranty....Beyond that we would recommend the OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W as a strong buy to anyone looking for an affordable ~600W power supply.

He gave me money to give him a computer, no warranty on any of the products have anything to do with anything, any computer I've ever built has as much of a lifetime warranty as XFX. He doesn't get any of those warranties as I will handle everything for every part from hence forth.

One lady had a kid who spilt a cup of pop on their 4 month old computer and fried most of the parts. Well outside of any warranty, I bought new all the replacement parts on my dime and didn't charge her a penny for the replacement. Please don't tell me I'm gipping people unless you know my business practices.

....anyways.

That setup is perfectly fine for a simple build that won't be overclocked. We may be on an enthusiast oriented forum, but not every computer we build needs to overclock to a bajillion giggleherz. That PSU and RAM will be fine for what this build is intended for.

And I fully agree with taking the new card as payment. The guy handed him $1000 and said build me a complete new computer (monitor, keyboard, speakers, everything). He is getting a sub-$200 graphics card in exchange for the labor, time, and future technical support, and the owner is still getting a great GPU that is probably more than what he needs. I do not see a problem here. The parts are already budget, where do you expect him to cut parts to get money out of the deal and still meet the owner's needs? I'm sure he will be plenty satisfied with this build.

Thanks for the comments Katz, and while 1 or 2 may have left a sour taste in my mouth at the time, I really do appreciate everyones comments, seriously.

I was never trying to hoodwink the man, he knew the plan from the beginning. I've known him a few years and he wanted me to get something fun out of the project myself since I didn't really want to charge him in fees.

With that aside though I've decided it'd be best to just sell the 4890 locally while it's still got some value to it, and get a 5770 for this project. The 5770 will be less powerful, but the future scalability, and reduced power draw/heat output should counter-balance that.

Again, I appreciate all comments.

do you get the Cooler Master CM Storm mouse too for free w that case?
I would like to warn you, you are now making yourself responsible for customer support, regardless of what goes wrong and something always does, they will blame you/ask you to fix it...

# 1 problem, Pzrn. as previously suggested, I know ur not the dad, suggesting setting up the MS parental controls and Firefox add on's is a good idea though

@13 i was wakin it to anything i could download lol

I forgot, he also mentioned the case had to be black, and also that he didn't want to tell me too much of what to use, because in his words: " I would never tell an artist how to paint"

What's the word on Spinpoint F4's?

Edit: Just to note, people questioning PC Power & Cooling has kinda floored me, either they are new to the game, or just learning about PSU's.
I haven't heard much about the spinpoint F4s, but the F3s should be good enough. Fast and quiet.

As for components, just making sure, but if he's okay w/ it, then that's all that matters. Just show him a picture of the case before you buy and make sure he'll be okay w/ the looks.

PC & Power Cooling got bought by OCZ, so maybe that's why ppl are questioning your choice of PSU. I agree though, I've had 3 OCZ power supplies and they haven't failed me yet.
