Intel Core i5-2400 Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.4GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core
RAIDMAX SMILODON ATX-612WBP Black 1.0mm SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Foldout MB Computer Case With 500W Power Supply
ASUS P8H61-M (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Seagate Barracuda Green ST1500DL003 1.5TB 5900 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop
LG DVD Burner Black SATA Model GH24NS70 - OEM

I will have a monitor mouse and keyboard already as well as a copy of win 7 64 bit

My question is do I need a graphics card for this since these processors have the built in technology, If so which one would be a good cheap choice or is the graphics on the processor good enough for business use.

Also any other recommendations would be much appreciated!

  1. The built in HD GPU on the 2400 is enough for their use.
  2. Ok good cause i liked this package because of the hard drive size cause they have alot of music and business files
  3. Also one more question. Say one of my siblings wants to play sims or sc2 or something, is there any good video cards less then 75$ in case I decide to throw one in it in the future?
  4. The i5 2400 is a very powerful processor . Much more than you need for Quickbooks

    I think you should get a 2100 , an H67 motherboard for the improved connectivity

    and a quality case that would suit an office environment

    This HD 5670 would allow for gaming http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102930
  7. Home office builds are simple. All you need is a competent CPU/motherboard combination with the needed connectivity. I am still using G41 motherboards with E5200 and E6500 CPU's.

    Does everything I need to do in the office.
