I'm new here, but have been reading the site for awhile. I'm looking to build a low cost system for a frined of mine and looking for design ideas.
Primary purpose for the machine is websurfing/facebook...etc...won't be gaming. He has a cecently fast connection to internet...(I think his isp rates it 7mbs download). Primarlily...I want webpages to explode in his face...as cheap as possible.
Just building a tower...all other periphreals are already owened. Any advise would be welcomed
I am thinking a duel core with decent speed should accomplish this? Most likely an amd based system for cheapest components?
he said as CHEAP as possible,
Amd sempton 140=32
biostar 785g3=60 free ship
kingston value ram ddr3 2x1gb=54
cheapest dvd burner = 23
rosewill matx case=30
rosewill green 430watt = 40
Wow...being new....didn't expect responses so fast....many thanks. I'll check your guys ideas....thank you very much!
cheap is better...and I think that he may be trying to write .....lika as in noob authoring...so maybe I need a bit more HD....but I thought maybe I would go fairly small, with option of a larger second (storage drive) once I saw how things were working for him.
I like ur idea basically P1n3apqlExpr3ss and seems it would be fairly balanced...one other question....I'm pretty sure he has no OS disk so Im wondering if I should goto Win7? (64 bit?) with maybe a bit more ram? I saw win7 cheaper than xp pro that I have built al my stuff with before ( I assume this is supply and demand type of thing).
