New to computers, does this look like a good buy for the price?
Nov 25, 2010, 6:09 AM
I am on a 10 year old compaq presario and want to get a new desktop, not really for gaming but just be able to multi task and watch vids / movies. Found this on newegg for $468.49 but I am not sure what to look for in ram / motherboard etc.
Thank you very much for anything you can help me with.

You need a DVD writer too? Not bad but some parts like the HDD and PSU are not very good.
AMD Athlon II X3 445 + Kingston HyperX 4GB
SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB
SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W
LG DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA + COOLER MASTER HAF 912
Alternatives for the case

PSU is ... OK, I guess. The included hard drive makes it a no-go for me.
The larger Seagate 7200.11 drives had serious firmware problems.
