I am looking to build a business pc, the pc would be used strictly for data , some still images and internet sales, I like to do multi-tasking with the pc’s so I normally have 6 or 7 windows open in same time, I like to get Intel cpu, either i3 or i5, as for ram 8 or 12 gig for the video I like to have a 500 gig, and for hard drive I was thinking of getting 2 one 250 gig for the operating system and 1 terabyte for the data and such, my budget is between 800-1000.
I do appreciate any and all help.
Thanks
Jon

Hi Ref2365 (or Jon). If your looking for a system build, rather than specific help with CPU & Components, you would be better off posting in the Systems section of the forum. Or you could request for a mod to move the post.

Make sure you fill out the form in one of the stickies at the top of the forum section, and I'm sure you will get the help you need.

Hi Jon, welcome to the forums.

Let's talk over some stuff real quick.

-First off, we can easily get that i3 you want. The i3-2100 fits the bill perfectly.

-You do not need 12 GB of ram. Trust me on this one. In fact, you only need 2 GB. However, we'll throw in 4GB just to be sure that you won't run into ram related issues.

-How about an SSD for the OS, (60 GB, allows you to install windows 7 plus some apps, like MS office and such) and 1 or 2 TB for data? SSD's are WAY faster than mechanical hard drives. However, they cost much more.

Last thing is, what do you have now? Do you need a monitor? How about mouse, keyboard, or OS?

I'll get back to you once you answer those questions.

I would start by finding a couple of cheap 23 or 24 inch monitors, that will leave you with a budget of around 750, which is more than you will need. I'd say around $600 should get you what you the rest of what you want. If you post the build for $1000 max, most of the builds will come in around $1020. If you order the monitors right away, then post a $600 build, that will be more than sufficient for what you need. Also , you'll want to compare Win 7 Home premium and Win 7 Pro to see if you need any features from pro, there is a decent price difference between the two.

Thought I would throw this build out there to give you an idea of what you could get with your budget. I already had it done up for a consulting gig for a small business on a hardware budget of $1000 and $350 for software. It is designed for a small business they wanted to have multiple windows open on dual monitors as well an SSD boot drive and TB of secondary storage. I removed the Software and Keyboard/Mouse as they were "bulk" items.
