Hello all, I am currently putting together a budget build and would like some advice on whether or not i should go with the build i am currently thinking about. everything is from newegg minus the ram so far.
This computer will be a Windows 7 machine that i wont be gaming on, i do a lot of multi-tasking, and a decent amount of photoshop but nothing too complicated. I would like to keep the build at around $400.00 (i can probably live with a little over that), and i dont need any of the peripherals (i.e. monitor).
[CPU] - AMD Athlon II X4 620 Propus 2.6GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Processor $99.00
I went with this processor because of the fact that it is a quad core for 100 bucks, figure for what i want it should be good.
[MOBO] - ASUS M4A77TD Pro AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard $89.99 ($79.99 after MIR)
This mobo supports DDR3 and is not very expensive and has gotten good reviews so it seemed like a good choice.
yeah i was pretty sure i was gonna trim down on the gpu, and the ram i wasnt sure about either. and i already have the 64-bit windows 7 pro on order so im fine there. and the reason i was going to buy a serperate gpu is because the asus mobo i picked didnt seem to have any onboard video, but if that gigabyte board is better then i will just go with that one.
