Solved First Ever Build And I Would Like Help Tags: Build Computer Systems Product Last response: January 14, 2011 2:58 PM in Systems Share vikings09 January 6, 2011 2:40:29 PM Hey everyone I am looking to build a new system under 400 dollars. No this will not be a gaming rig but a good home computer. I need the community's input on this. Would like a core 2 duo or even a quad core. Just something to replace my old ass computer. I would go buy one from the store but would like to see what kind of performance I can get from my own build and whether its better to. I will be running windows 7 which I got for Christmas but my computer can't run. The most demanding thing I do on a computer is encode my raw .avi files from the camcorder to DVD's using Convertxtodvd. I don't play games, I have a console for that and the only games I play on a computer are basic flash games online. I want to build my own rig but if it is better and cheaper to buy one then I will take the community's word for it. Thanks So, what case, mobo, ram, cpu, etc.. should I get? Thanks in advance More about : build Best solution gkay09 January 7, 2011 3:01:13 AM ^ For that budget, IMO an AMD build would better suit,...
