Newegg.ca isn't a good canadian shop, Directcanada has lower prices and offer free shipping for orders of 300$ + and 100lbs -.
Newegg.com and Newegg.ca are different worlds XD. Thanks for at least reading
That case is nice, but i want to keep the price down the most i can. But since you mentionned Antec, think the Antec EarthWatts 380w could handle that computer?
OS is already avaible and he doesn't need to buy another copy.
And i never used G.Skill memory before, those sticks should be able to run on that board right?
I think your proposed system will draw less than 100 watts. so 380 is more than enough. any higher rating will just have the PSU running further and further from its peak efficiency zone. the one your trying to beat has a 300 watt PSU, but its probably not an 80plus rated PSU.
the 780g is a pretty efficent chipset, and it includes top of the line on board graphics, the equivilant to the add on card in the prebuilt system. adding vid card would just add unneeded expense and power draw for someone like your uncle.
If your uncle has a desk with a built in spot for an ATX tower than the case doesn't matter all that much, but if it'll go on his desk, I'd think he'd want the smallest and sleakest thing he could get, maybe even one of the shuttle systems.
your best bet is to ask him what case he wants.
