Solved PC build for my Dad - All Opinions welcome Tags: Build Systems Last response: April 22, 2010 2:26 AM in Systems Share goatsword April 22, 2010 12:47:48 AM Hey All, My Dad saw my gaming PC and wants me to build him one. Personally, I'd rather send him to Best Buy but... I've never built a low end PC so, let me know what you guys think: APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: ASAP SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Productivity (for a CPA, Excel, Quicken, etc PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse, OS (Windows x64) PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg PARTS PREFERENCES: Due to cost, this should probably be an AMD, and probably X4 for multitasking OVERCLOCKING: No MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1440x900 ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Not a huge case, I have a HAF 922 and thats WAY to big. Thanks all!!!
