Solved Advice on New Build for Office/Work Tags: Build Office Systems Last response: September 23, 2013 2:30 PM in Systems Share mmccreesh1 September 23, 2013 4:38:49 AM Hi, I am looking to build a new computer for work in my office. I have put together a list of parts using PCPartPicker. Please let me know what you think and what improvements you think I could make. Approximate Purchase Date: This week Budget Range: £300-370 System Usage from Most to Least Important: emails, browsing, AutoCAD, GIMP Are you buying a monitor: No, already have one - 1680 x 1050 Parts to Upgrade: Everything except monitor, CD/DVD drive, keyboard and mouse Do you need to buy OS: No, already bought previously, Windows 7 Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Aria, Amazon, Scan, Overclockers Location: Co. Down, Northern Ireland Parts Preferences: Need CPU that is decent at multitasking, large HDD Overclocking: No, I don't want to spend extra money on a third-party fan and a more expensive motherboard that is better for overclocking. SLI or Crossfire: No Your Monitor Resolution: 1680x1050 Additional Comments: No games, GIMP is only used rarely for eBay pictures. AutoCAD used quite frequently. And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Current PC is 4 or 5 (maybe more, can't remember) years old and feel like it's time for an upgrade. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor (£83.99 @ Aria PC) Motherboard: MSI 970A-G46 ATX AM3+ Motherboard (£63.47 @ Aria PC) Memory: Kingston HyperX Blu 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 Memory (£56.00 @ Amazon UK) Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£46.68 @ Aria PC) Case: Cooler Master Elite 430 ATX Mid Tower Case (£37.91 @ Aria PC) Power Supply: Corsair CX 430W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply (£39.30 @ Amazon UK) Total: £327.35 (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

Everything else looks fine. Share mmccreesh1 September 23, 2013 2:30:23 PM tiny voices said:You have no video card listed and there is no onboard video on that motherboard so it will not work. Everything else looks fine. Oops, not used to AMD CPU's. Thought all modern ones had built-in GPU's. Anyway, I have an old HD 6670 lying around the house I could use so that isn't a problem. I ordered the parts earlier. Thanks for the advice. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedTransferring a Hard Drive into a new build - Need advice!
