Can you guys do any better than this? (Budget Build)

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
I want to spend less than $300 total. Here is the list of stuff I decided on. I can definitely get a lesser wattage power supply but I don't want to sacrifice quality. What do you guys think of this?

Case:

I already have a keyboard, mouse, monitor and optical drive and the OS. This is a budget build for my son. I will not be needing a video card because the on board one should suffice.

Total = $336 - $35 (rebates) = $301 after tax and shipping!

The build looks pretty good. Like you mentioned a power supply with less wattage will bring down the cost and save on the electricity bill thumb.gif

Something like the CoolerMaster

I would rather get the Antec 650w for $50 after rebate and $5 code then get the Coolermaster.

The 760G chipset/graphics has no UVD2, which means no flash 10.1 accelerated YouTube which I think is a must for kids nowadays. You will want minimum 785G/880G chipset.
here would be my choice for a budget build:
Phenom II x2 555 @ Fry's - $60
Coolermaster Elite 341 @ Fry's - $15, $5 AR
Biostar A880G+ - $60(note: not for unlocking & overclocking due to board quality)
Corsair XMS3 1600 9-9-9 - $50, $40 AR
[ame="http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Spinpoint-Cache-Desktop-HD103SJ/dp/B001U3S5S0"]Samsung F3 1TB[/ame] - $60 Amazon
Antec NEO ECO 400C - $45 (A Seasonic-built; I owned an OEM version of this before [SS-400ET], it's a great PSU)

There you go sir, $290/$270 AR smile.gif

Hey, thanks for that information about flash 10.1. You don't think the antec that I listed for $5 more is better. Also does the PSU that you listed come with a power cored? I know a lot of the lower wattage antec don't.

why don't you just go with a cheap video card?

By all means if you can get that 650W go for it, just suggested the Antec 400W to keep within budget before MIRs; honestly with a Phenom II x2 and integrated graphics that's probably all you need anyway. The NEO ECO should come with a power cord, it's usually OEM power supplies that don't but specifically I wouldn't know.

I found this board for $65 after using the $15 off code (EMCZNPY56).
