SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT:nexus 1000v for 60 day trial(thats why 8 gigs of ram) after that vmware and just regular usage. no gaming

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com, anything you guys suggest.(the cheaper the better) COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA

PARTS PREFERENCES: by brand or type: AMD

OVERCLOCKING: No SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1024x768, (i think)

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:

my dad is using this build and is set on using it for nexus 1000v 60 day trial and wants 8 gigs of ram because of it(i think it is a waste,but its his money) integrated graphics will be fine because he isn't doing any gaming.

Hi this is a follow up to one of samdsox's builds. He is my brother and quit on my dads build so i came up with a new one. Personally i think its decent but you guys always have the best advice.

Cas 9?

Bad timings?
