Help finalizing build for small business

I am starting up a company and decided to build my own systems. The computers will be used primarily just for accounting software/email/internet. Wanted opinions on the build I came up with. I have already met my budget requirements so I do not need to cut costs. However, after building several gaming rigs over the years I had a very hard time letting go. No point in spending money if you are not going to utilize it.


Processor: AMD x3 450 Rana...bundled with motherboard for $125
motherboard: BIOSTAR a770E3...bundled with cpu for $125
Video Card: AMD 4650...$33 after rebate
Case: NZXT GAMMA Classic Series GAMA-001BK Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case...$40
power Supply: 500 w APEX AL-D500 EXP...$45
Memory: Mushkin 2x2gb DDR3 1333...$38
DVD drive: standard...$16
Hard Drive: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" $50

Total: $350

    Piece of crap and you certainly don't need anywhere near it's stated power ( doubt it could do it anyway )
    The Antec EA-430D goes for $45, or the 380 for $40, either would be a much better choice

  2. Thank you for the heads up. Neweggs power supply calculator puts me at around 340 watts. So I swapped to the 430w supply you linked to give a little wiggle room if I want to upgrade down the road.
  3. One more question...the case only comes with 1 120mm rear fan. Can I get away with that or should I buy a couple side fans?
