ECS Black Series AMD 64.99

MSI N210-MD512D3 30

LITE-ON DVD iHAS124 17.99

Western Digital Caviar Blue 59.99

AMD Athlon II X4 645 3.1GHz 104.99

p.s. I may have put this in the wrong category I am new here :D

  1. They look to be compatible but I will advice against Diablotek PSU! What is the planned purpose of this build?
  2. Pretty much just for fun. Music, Homework, youtube, stuff like that. No gaming or video production.
  3. This topic has been moved from the section CPU & Components to section Systems by Mousemonkey
  4. What's your budget?
  5. Not very much, I just want a kinda fun project to do. So probably no more than $350?
  6. $350 doesnt include shipping or rebates
  7. Ah okay. I agree with rolli59 about the PSU. Try a different brand. I'll look up a build right now and see if it fits in your budget.

    Here it is:

    AMD A4-3400 Llano 2.7GHz Socket FM1 65W Dual-Core Desktop APU with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 6410D AD3400OJGXBOX $69.99

    ASUS F1A75-M LE FM1 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS $89.99

    Crucial 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model CT2KIT51264BA1339 $39.99

    Antec EarthWatts Green EA-380D Green 380W Continuous power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply $44.99

    COOLER MASTER Elite 430 RC-430-KWN1 Black Steel / Plastic Computer Case $49.99

    Western Digital Caviar Blue WD1600AAJS 160GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive $69.99

    Total: $365 before shipping and taxes (if applicable)

    I'm not sure how much hard drive space you want, but the hard drive I linked includes a DVD burner as well. This is as close as I can within your budget and still get parts from reputable brands.

    Edit: Actually, you can get within budget if you get only 4GB of RAM:

    Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model CT2KIT25664BA1339 $22.99

    This brings the total to $348.

    If the hard drive is too small, you can probably go with your original selections for hard drive and optical drive and still be within reasonable range of your budget.
  9. Thanks for the suggestion. I am not going to build yet (I might not build at all). Its kinda just for fun and I am not so serious yet about it. I will post back later if I am serious about building. :P
  10. Sounds good. Maybe hard drive prices will have come down a bit by then. Made this budget build very difficult actually since it took up such a large portion of the budget. Anyway, take care :)
