Building a buddies new rig...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
His requirements ... it is fast, it plays music, can do email, maybe watch a movie or 2, and look at porn.

Budget is 1K - anything we dont spend I get to keep lol *COUGH* *COUGH*

He needs it all:
CPU
mobo
ram
hard drives ( I am thinking 2-3TB)
psu
on-board graphics? or just a small video card?
case
monitor
speakers
keyboard
mouse
dvd-rw
Win 7


I have somewhat of an idea of what to build him, but I want to see if you guys can whip up something different/better/cheaper.

System can be Intel or AMD ....


Thanks for the help guys

Microsoft Black USB Wired Desktop 600

Even though we're on Intel side of things in the forum, as you said AMD would be fine, that's my suggestion. As long he isn't playing games that will work. You can change a few things, such as monitor and speakers and focus on better hardware or keyboard and mice. The case was just thrown out, nothing special about it, as everyone has different tastes

EDIT: forgot to mention the total... eheh

The guy above me beat me to it. He chose pretty much the same setup as me, although mine was Intel based and the CPU was slightly more expensive. For the money he saved he chose better speakers, which is probably to the interest of your friend. Best of luck with the build.

You also might want to note that the 2TB drive is 5400rpm, so for the sake of a small speed loss in using it as a storage and the 640 as a boot drive, you might want to opt for a simpler 1TB-2TB Samsung F1 and save a little bit.
