Hi I am seeking advice on building a SFF computer using Ubuntu 10.4 OS. I will be using this computer for web surfing, social networking, email, word processing, spreadsheets, photo editing, and light gaming. I am looking to build cheep if I can. Under $500.00, but prefer Under $300.00 if possible. Please help with suggestions. Thanks.
DVD drive $20 . Check if it hasto be half height .
You also need windows . Win7 64 bit oem is $99 if you dont have it already .
Options . Use a 2 x4 gig kit of ram . Unlikely you will need it but since you cant add more without discarding the kit I have included its worth considering .
There are far cheaper cases . That one is very high quality and so is the power supply .
I hope you have small fingers
Saves $49. I've used one and they are tiny. They look great, run cool, and can even be attached to the back of some monitors to create an "all-in-one". To be fair, there have been some reports of developing noisy psu fans. But this probably shows the range of savings and the risks associated.
And As Outlander said, I hope you have small fingers.
