Hey i want to build an office computer for the first time i have built a gaming build before but I'm not sure what i should focus the money on, this is what my idea so far after reading on the forum


Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3 1600MHz 8GB
2x4GB

Sapphire Radeon HD 6670 1GB GDDR5


Seagate Barracuda® 1TB

Intel Pentium Processor G2120
Socket-LGA1155, Dual Core, 3.1GHz

MSI Z77A-G43, Socket-1155
ATX, Z77,

Corsair CX 430M, 430W PSU
Samsung SSD 840 Series 120GB

so what do you think ? what should i change ? (this is pretty much a maxed out budget as it is so not much more expensive parts)

edit: i already have a case from my old computer, also the pc isnt going to be used on any complicated programs or games its going to be used for very basic programs (word,pp,excel and internett in general)

You don't need a Z mobo since you'll not be OC so you can save a little money there. Step down to a H or B mobo to save $30-40.. The 6670 is more than you need. A 6450 foe about $20 to 30 will do fine. If you want you can drop ram to 4G to save another $30.

as the above said a 5450 would also do just fine:

I just chose the 6570 because it's on offer at this time :)
