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.

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. Reply to mmccreesh1 Ask the community Post an answer Related resources: ForumSolvedNew Build advice and suggestions ForumSolvedNew Build.
