I would like some advice. I want to build a new computer with my son up to about $600. Though I am willing to spend more if the parts would add a year or so onto the computer. I would use it for spreedsheets, multiple tab internet browsing, cyrsis etc gaming. I would like it to be low on power usuage since it will be on all day. It will be a family computer. So far I have windows 7, a mouse, keyboard and an acer x203H flat screen moniter and a printer.
I am looking at the following parts though this is now running about $650 and I still don't have a hard drive or graphics card. Is these parts worth the price? Should I go with something different and upgrade later? Any help would be appreciative. also do I need the silver glue stuff to put these parts in? Does the motherboard come with internet or is that a seperate part I need to buy?
I told you..totally clue less
I also won't be overclocking..nor allowing my teenage son to do so.
Hi Mandigo! Welcome to the forums.
You seem to have a fairly good idea of what to look for, but we need to move some things around. The biggest thing is changing the 1100t to an i5-2400, which will outperform it.
Well, you have 2 options.
955 and am3+ with a 6870
i5-2400 with a 6850
Your choice. $650 is a tough budget.
