  1. NOOooooooo....
    Logisys makes PSU-shaped objects! They should never be attached to delicate electronics if there is any chance they will also be plugged in to an A/C power source at the same time. Definitely get a real PSU. A quality modern PSU has full range active PFC (no little voltage switch) and some level of 80+ certification for efficiency. Seasonic, Antec, Corsair, XFX, and Enermax/LEPA are among the better brands.
    Next, if this PC is for current games, you will likely find the GPU to be a little weak, especially if you like high-max settings and are playing at higher than 1280x1024 resolution.
    Check out the "Best Graphics Card for the Money" article here: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-performance-radeon-geforce,3018.html
    Next, you want either a 2x2GB RAM kit or a 2x4GB kit. The ones with three sticks are for Intel X58 boards for socket 1366.
    On a budget, the mobo you've chosen is solid, but if at all possible, if you build an AMD rig you should look for a Socket AM3+ board, which will provide an upgrade path to a Bulldozer CPU if you want it.
    Finally, there is a sticky thread on asking for new build advice which you would do well to fill out and post. It has all the questions we're likely to ask, like budget, resolution, and intended uses.
  2. your motherboard is dual channel memory not triple. get either two sticks of ram or 4. 1 and 3 will slow you down. otherwise all compatible
  3. oh ok cool i have a 700w psu already i was just going with the case cuz it was the cheapest one. does that case fit good with the stuff i got? also its not gonna be use for gaming at all, , on the ram what would you recomend me i want a 6gb of ram on this. thanks a mill
  4. If this will not be used for any gaming, take a look at an Intel Core i3 system on a H67 board with the IGP. It will outperform the AMD machine in almost every benchmark.
    Check out the cheap Rosewill cases. I've used probably half a dozen different ones in cheap builds, and they're all decent. They come with rear 120mm fans, which are quiet and move enough air. Watch out for shipping charges on cases; your chosen one ships for $10, making it as expensive as a nicer case with free or reduced shipping charges.
    With no plans to add a gaming graphics card, get the 380W version of the Earthwatts because it is a quality PSU that is even cheaper, and is still 80+ bronze.
    All AMD boards, and most Intel boards use dual-channel RAM, meaning you install memory in pairs. Most people get 2x2GB for 4GB total, but RAM is so cheap now you could always get 2x4GB instead. I prefer G.Skill or Mushkin; Corsair is also good and I have used AData as well.
  5. Here's a sample Intel build. It does not include the O/S, kbd, mouse, monitor, or other peripherals.

    ASRock H67M (B3) LGA 1155 Intel H67 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
    Model #:H67M (B3)
    Item #:N82E16813157233
    $99.99 -$20.00 Instant $79.99
    Not the cheapest one, but has SATA 6Gb/s and USB 3.0.

    Intel Core i3-2105 Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz LGA 1155 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I32105
    Model #:BX80623I32105
    Item #:N82E16819115090
    $134.99 $134.99
    The i3-xxx5 models have HD3000 graphics, which is a little better than the HD2000 (but is still too weak for most games).

    G.SKILL Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBNT
    Model #:F3-10666CL9D-8GBNT
    Item #:N82E16820231424
    $41.99 $41.99
    Again not the cheapest one, but I've never had a DOA stick from G.Skill.

    Antec EarthWatts Green EA-380D Green 380W Continuous power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power ...
    Model #:EA-380D Green
    Item #:N82E16817371033
    $59.99 -$20.00 Instant $39.99
    Has been my goto PSU for basic builds for years.

    Rosewill R102-P-BK 120mm Fan MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case
    Model #:R102-P-BK
    Item #:N82E16811147111
    $29.99 $29.99
    I've used this case. It is small, but sturdy and the fan is decent.

    Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500413AS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
    Model #:ST3500413AS
    Item #:N82E16822148701
    $44.99 $44.99
    Good drive. I prefer these a little over the Spinpoint F3, but they're really quite similar in performance.

    Sony Optiarc CD/DVD Burner Black SATA Model AD-7261S-0B LightScribe Support - OEM
    Model #:AD-7261S-0B
    Item #:N82E16827118040
    $18.99 $18.99
    One optical drive is much like another, but this one has Lightscribe support.

    Subtotal: $390.93

    There you go. Until / unless you fill out the sticky thread, it will be hard to know where to make improvements. You may want a faster CPU like a Core i5, or maybe you need more storage, or a SSD. Otherwise, this should be a nice, reliable, compact productivity machine.
  6. i need a video card also
  7. The onboard video of the Core i3 CPU will be sufficient for non-gaming use. Not needing a separate video card is one thing that keeps this build cheap.
  8. oh does it have hdmi input?
  9. HDMI OUTPUT, yes.
  10. Check my $500 build.
