Solved Best Budget AMD Computer Tags: Systems Product Last response: November 30, 2011 11:24 PM in Systems Share iGGY-101 November 28, 2011 3:44:18 AM Hi, I am looking for the cheapest possible rig to build with AMD CPU. This system will be used for casual internet browsing, music, office work and a little gaming (eg. Angry Birds, Puzzles etc.) Budget: $100-$250 Im really not looking into performance although if comes in the price range i am more than happy for the suggestions, just something that will work and is really cheap will do anyway. Parts I dont need: Tower Case, Fans, Drives, Keyboard, Monitor, Speakers, OS, HDDs and Mouse. Thanks.

You can buy a low end graphic card later down the line if the integrated graphic doesn't work out for you. You'll be fine with something like a gt 240 which you can grab for like $35 these days I think lol.

Ask ! Get the answer Raiddinn November 28, 2011 4:30:51 AM I would stretch for the Phenom 2 840 processor instead of the Athalon 2 250, but for extremely light duty work either might be good enough. In any event, it still fits under the budget maximum. unksol November 28, 2011 5:03:22 AM or you could go the APU route with tbe memory and PSU above. www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681910395... www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681315727... wintermint November 28, 2011 5:25:59 AM "Cheapest possible rig" I know there's enough money to get better parts but he did asked for the cheapest XD Raiddinn November 28, 2011 12:14:00 PM Well, the cheapest possible rig could include going to a pawn shop and buying some pos computer from 1985 for like $10 and it would potentially function. It wouldn't necessarily accomplish the goals set forth in a meaningful way, though. I proposed an amendment because I thought the increased experience would be worth the increased expenditure. iGGY-101 November 30, 2011 11:24:58 PM Best answer selected by iGGY-101.
