It's a very good machine you getting there sir.
For usual tasks you don't need a faster CPU than the one you got.
As far I know you could get the Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bits OEM for USD99 at US newegg. I think CAD newegg should be equivalent price.
Hi there..I would like some comments/suggestions on my new and first upcoming build for a home/family pc.
Here are the components:
Intel Pentium G630 2.7GHz 65W Dual Core (BX80623G630) $89.97 Lower end cpu but will work
ASUS P8H61-M LE Motherboard (P8H61-M-LE/CSM) $72.99CA Basic board that will work for this build
Kingston DDR3 4GB 1333 CL9 $24.99CAD 1.5v so should work
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 32MB 3.5" SATA 6GB/S 7200RPM (WD10EALX) (WD10EALX) $107.99CAD The blue series is not as dependable as the black line. suggest you go with a 500gb hdd for now
Thermaltake V3 Mid Tower Case $42.99 The following Rosewill is a favorite of Toms buyers:
Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, comes with Three Fans-1x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1x Top 140mm ...
Note (Add) $59.99 -$5.00 Instant $54.99
Corsair 430W Builder Series™ CX430 80 Plus PSU $43.04CAD Good brand and will meet this need but not much headroom for future changes
Total: $ 382
And anyone know where i can get Windows 7 64 bit for cheap? Win7 64bit $99
Hey i'm going to bail on this build. It's above my budget( pretty low budget ). I'm considering buying this barebone kit that includes a4-3400, it will meet my families basic needs. HDMI on the mobo is what i think made me lean towards this, since i want to take advantage of HDMI from my cpu. Anyhow, i would like to know what the community thinks before i move ahead.
