So a buddy of mine is trying to put together a cheap system using some salvaged parts from an old machine. I was just trying to get some feedback on the components. The only parts that will have to be purchased is a case/PSU/HDD
CPU E5200 2.5GHz, 2M L2 cache, 800MHz FSB –LGA 775
GPU BFG Tech nVidia GeForce 9500 GT, 1GB DDR2
RAM PNY optima 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240pin DDR2 800
The monitor that he has is nothing special and the resolution that he wants to play at is a standard 1024x768.
Case - ?
PSU - ?
HDD West Digi – Caviar Blue 500GB, 16MB cache, 7200RPM – WD5000AAKS
This rig would be set up pretty much just for playing WOW and other basic computer task. We just want to know if all the parts play well together. As for the case/psu/HDD he is just looking for something cheap and functional.
