Would you buy this unit, or would you rather buy a Dell or an HP system? Remember, this is for both ones who have built and those who do not want to build. How much would you pay for it?

  1. Even w/o stating purpose of rig: hell no but for better assistance
    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advice
    To answer your question: i would think carefully where to hit the most for biggest gains for what i hope to do with the machine and go DIY :P
  2. Need more info on your requirements. Btw, that MS Keyboard comes without mouse - it's only a $30 keyboard. Also, seeing as you're going with a 5670, looks like you've gaming on your mind. In that case, you need to prolly look at 4GB RAM & also 64 bit Windows. If not, then either get a board with integrated graphics or an inexpensive $30 graphics card. Either ways, your build ain't working to be perfectly honest.

    Anyways, can only help further once you've filled out the form in batuchka's link.
  3. @ calguyhunk - I think the "(2)" means he intends to buy two sets of the RAM.

    @ dogman_1234 - A quick run-down:
    - you can get a better case for $55 (see Antec 300)
    - CPU choice is something you haven't read up on; the PII 955 is a much better value
    - HDD is a terrible choice; look up Samsung F3 500GB
    - RAM is overpriced; check out 2x2GB sets; they're usually cheaper, and you're getting 4GB anyway
    - mobo is a bit excessive for this build, and to get the most bang for your buck, you want a very balanced build
    - ODD, KBM, monitor, and PSU are fine
    - GPU really depends on your usage for this build
  4. You're right blackjello, didn't notice that, but IMO you gotta get a single 2 X 2 set. As you said, much less expensive that way. 90 bucks gives you 4 GB DDR3 1600 instead of 120 in this case :)
  5. Sorry, I forgot about the Proximon standard.



    Approximate Purchase Date:Any.


    Budget Range: Any,( just needs to be low price for consumer)


    System Usage from Most to Least Important: Processing, all around system usage.


    Parts Not Required: Air


    Preferred Websites for Parts: Wherever the prices are low


    Parts Preferences: AMD/Intel CPU,(duh), but not very picky. Some part should be US...if possible. Antec.

    Overclocking: Maybe- up to the end user.


    SLI or Crossfire: No


    Monitor Resolution: Any, but higher than 800x800


    Additional Comments: I am asking this for a reason. I want to build computrs for my community and sell them. If you ask why I want to do this and/or why can't everyone build their own or buy a system from Dell/HP?
  6. You need different builds for different usage at different price range. A 500-700 dollar basic web surfing multimedia pc will have an i3 540/Athlon 450 build with integrated graphics (H55) or a Radeon HD 4650 max (something around 30-40 bucks).

    It will be different from a $500-$700 gaming build (maybe with a 5670/5770), which in turn is gonna differ from a F@H or video encoding / photo processing build at the same price range.

    Now these are gonna be completely different from 24 X 7 server builds, say.

    I think this thread will give you an idea bout what to look for at different price points for different requirements. Not all of these builds are perfect IMO, but you can't really go terribly wrong with any I don't think.

    Btw, 800 X 800 resolution? The game's really moved on since then. These days they ship 10" netbooks with almost as many pixels. The minimum you're looking at will be 1366 X 768 for an 18.5-19" screen (16:9 aspect ratio).

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but they never really made any with a 1:1 aspect ratio. The standard ones are 4:3 (used for official purposes mostly), 16:9 (mainstream home/gaming) & very recently, 21:9 (for uber high-end home theater builds only) with a resolution of 2560 X 1080.

    Need to elaborate i.e are apps/software leveraging on CPU or GPU or both @@
  8. Seems like you found the worst parts on purpose, great job
  9. You know what, instead of criticism, how about some help! GET IT!

    I know it is a lousy build. I have another one( BETTER) than this one...or will you crap on that one as well. The newegg users seem to be happy about those parts. I did not choose them on purpose but on what the usage was...BASIC: IE: Internet, word processor, extra usages...etc.
  10. Better ^^

  11. You cant say that newegg users seemed to be happy with those parts when the hard drive, keyboard, and memory only have 6 reviews between them!

    Newegg users were also pretty fond of this product too,
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817709011&cm_re=sunbeam_580w-_-17-709-011-_-Product
    but i guess this shows us just how shoddy of a product your average newegg reviewer is happy with
    http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=204

    I thought you were smart enough not to trust newegg reviews dogman?

    And some of those parts are just plain wrong, the HDD is meant for use with low power audio video systems like HTPCs not for every day usage, its more expensive than it should be, small and slow, the F3 has three times the capacity, quite a bit more speed and is only $20 more.


    Rather than trying to get a single build to fit everyone's needs in your area, have a few different ones that fill different roles. For example, my mother would have no need for a PII 965, I do, but i also need more GPU power than a 5670. The form of a computer must follow its function, if you decide what it will have in it before you know what it will do it wont do it well.
