Was asked to build for a friend who knows nothing about pcs's
Multitasking/General purpose pc with some very lite gaming.
Purchase date: ASAP
Budget range: 750$ Canadian
Multitasking/watching movies and occasionally some Rts gaming
Parts not needed:Keyboard Mouse and OS
Website for parts: newegg.ca or canada computers or any other reliable canadian website.
DVD burner:any burner will do
CPU: AMD for value
Motherboard: AM3 socket only I personally prefer asus but im open to suggestions , I would prefer an Atx board but it doesn't have to be.
Video card: Doesn't really matter once it is able to play his RTS games. Warcraft 3 Diablo 2 and Diablo 3 when it is released. Was looking at the 5670.
RAM: 4GB DDR3
HD: 500-750 Gigs the machine will only have 1 HD to start of with so it has to be fast. 7200 rpm 32-64mb of cache and 5 year warranty preferred.
Quality Power supply that will last through an upgrade or two on the computer. I guess anything around 400-500 watts from a reputably company (corsair , Seasonic )
Case: was looking at the Antec 300
Power supply:This is the real problem , with this tight budget its hard to get a decent 80+ certified PSU
No SLI or Crossfire
This is what i came up with.
At first I was going to order from new egg but best direct has free shipping on orders over 500$ so unless i can get a cheaper price im going with them .
