NEED ONE DESKTOP TO RUN AND PRINTER THAT 2 DESKTOPS,1 LAPTOP

:hello: Can anyone help me build the right desktop for its job?
I have 2 desktops (we call them d1 and d2) and a laptop that all have to go though d1 to print. Now d1 runs programs and internet for employes and d2 is 1 employ that does the accounting and vary little internet. The laptop is does internet and plays dvds. d1 runs slow well doing anything and I think it slows down the other computers some times. I wont to replace d1. Can I get advice on buying a motherboard,cpu,ram,power supplie, and hard drive for a desktop computer to do (what ia listed above) all this and run smooth and fast. I would like to spend $300 or less but can go as much as $700. I dont wont a server. I have a small business of 5 employee's.

  1. What type of programs is the desktop running? And do you have any preferences on what parts you get?
  2. is it a usb printer? you can get usb to network devices that should make the printer a network printer, or buy a network printer, would be cheaper than a PC?
  3. my guess is you want a quad core with hyperthreading... an i7 920 may be a little old but its still a great cpu... it should cost less than a i5 2600... all in your probably looking at 400 minimum for motherboard cpu and ram... regardles of whether you choose a quad i5 or an older i7...
  4. It honestly all depends on what he will doing with it, programs is too broad; If he has programs that utilise hyperthreading I might recommend an i7, if hes running micosoft paint an i3 would suffice.

    I thank you for your response on my ?. hyperthreeading is for sure what i need, I will find a i7 920 to buy but i still need a motherboard to accommodate the CPU at its fullest. What do you suggest here? My OS is ging to be win7 64 bit.
