  1. amd apu for sure. what is your price range? i can build you one if you would like
  2. On newegg right now under DIY pc are a lot of good amd four core apu systems with 500g hard drives in the 200-400 price range. All I would add is a 19.00 cd rom and four more gigs of ram if there four gig systems.
  3. Not sure AMD APU is the CPU to get.

    You can tell from the graph that its all Intel CPUs on top. Some of the programs he'll be using will be "faster" on a Intel setup over AMD. That said, the user is usually the slowest thing in an office machine. So cheapest 2C/4T CPU is probably best. To this I would add 4 or 8GBs of ram depending on budget, a 1TB drive, and either the Antec 380W green or the Corsair CX430W. Motherboard will depend on which camp you go with of course.
  4. I wanna spend sth around 230$ for it, a cheap rig for doing very ordinary works but not a 90s Computer of course
    thanks

  6. Watch the bumping.

    I'm not sure you can get new rig for $230. Your only bet is probably Walmart and buy their cheapest machine.
  7. how much should I spend for my need as u see fit?
  8. If you are just doing Word and Excel then even the cheap unit at walmart will do fine. When you came here I thought you might be looking for something special, but if its just straight office use and low budget, that's the point of those machines.

    He'd still need a harddrive and a copy of windows. This isn't anything special, but will get the office stuff done.

    Dual core, 4GBs of ram, near 1TB hdd. Nothing special but should work. Assuming he doesn't need a monitor to.
