It's for my sister, she doesn't really need anything much but she wants a nice computer
6GB Ram
Any Case
Intel I7
Whatever mobo with Triple ram support (forget what this is called)

No video Card, just onboard

Anybody know of a prebuilt computer like this? I don't wanna build it for her, ncix has some but they mostly have videocards. Any input would be appreciated

Hello kolkim;
No chance you'll find an X-58 motherboard (triple channel ram) & CPU with onboard graphics - they don't exist. You'll need to add a graphics card if you go that way.
Seems like a Core i7-9xx CPU and X-58 motherboard is a bit much for some who 'she doesn't really need anything much'.
None of the usual prebuilt players (Dell and HP) have i7-9xx CPUs and X-58 motherboards on the Canadian sites.

HP Canada has HP Pavilion Elite HPE-440f Desktop PC with a quad core i5-760 2.8Ghz CPU, 8GB RAM (dual channel), 1GB HDD, Blu-Ray optical drive, and a Radeon HD 5570 graphics card to power though all those HD videos.

I think laptops are getting more popular, especially among those that aren't gamers.

It's probably a good idea to dive on in over at the Laptop/Notebook section of the forum and ask there.
