I am currently building myself a multimedia/productivity desktop that will not be required to play any games. The main uses of the desktop will be practically office work and dual monitors will be required.
I am looking to have it reasonably fast (thinking of i3 series or phenom 955 BE) on a lower budget if possible (sub-700 excl. monitor; lower the better). I will also use dual monitors off one GPU and will be slightly overclocking to get value out of the build.
I already have a build outlined and I would like your guys' feedback on what you think:
MOBO: Asus P7P55 LX
RAM: G.Skill F3-12800 (1.5 V, 9-9-9-24 timings)
GPU: HD4670 (this is the cheapest GPU I found that supports dual monitors - Looking to use 1 DVI and 1 HDMI)
HD: Caviar Black 500gb 32mb cache
Case: Thermaltake V4 ATX
Optical: random LG one
Heatsink: CM hyper 212
OS: Windows 7 HP
Total cost (of today, 24th of Feb): 604.2 (cdn)
I'm just curious whether this is the right route for what I'm doing
Thanks in advance for your feedback.
